That’s when she fell for...

... the leader of the pack jihad.

When you become Muslim, you so-o-o admire people with knowledge.

It’s like — ohhhhh!be still my heart!

When he talks about jihad!

Arabic he speaks!

That’s for us!!

It’s not like, mmmm, y’know, “He’s a bit cute,” or y’know “He drives a...” — That’s not really important to us.

But if he’s going to stand there with his beard and his sword, and say, y’know, “I’m into jihad!

That is extraordinarily attractive!

So speaks Dubbo-born-fifth-generation-Australian, Muslim-convert Raisah bint Alan Douglas — ‘misrepresented’ in her own words on the ABC-TV program Jihad Sheilas — describing her first meeting with her second husband (of five).

Sounding for all the world like some adolescent, airheaded Aussie sheila gushing over her infatuation with young Johnny, the ‘misunderstood’ town hood, this is one of the more ... um ... memorable quotes from a program in which Ms bint Alan Douglas seeks to illuminate for us infidels the life-choices she has made over the past 30-or-so years.

Substitute ‘knowledge’ for ‘cool’, the beard for sideburns, and the sword for a flick-knife or motorcycle drive-chain, and her life-story could perhaps be splendidly told in the form of a musical along the lines of Grease, by way of The Lords of Flatbush, with a classic rock’n’roll soundtrack:

Just because he doesn’t do what
Everybody else does
That’s no reason why
I can’t give him all my love
He’s always good to me
Always treats me tenderly
’Cause he’s not a ter’rist — no no no!
He’s not a ter’rist — no no no!
— To me-e-e-e-e-e!

I actually taped this week's repeat of the program just so that I could manually transcribe that appallingly airheaded statement, as there's no transcript available.

I never realised you had to be Muslim to admire people with knowledge. What happened to the rest of us? How are we able to see a brilliant mind and think highly of them? Where's someone like Prof Sumner Miller to answer our 'Why is it so?' question?

I watched it too. Rather scary.

"It's scarier in hell..." would I think be the 'knowing' rejoinder from these characters.

But far be it from me to bother arguing with a closed system of belief based on control by fear.

"It's more fearful in hell..." yadda yadda
