Shannon Conley, teen accused of trying to aid ISIS terror group: Her rebirth as "Slave of Allah"

Shannon Conley. More photos and a document below.
Thus far, the photo of Shannon Conley seen above -- it's cropped from a larger family snapshot shared by her mother, Ana Conley, on Facebook -- is the only image to have surfaced since news broke that the Arvada nineteen-year-old had been arrested for trying to "provide material support and resources" to the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. See the recently unsealed criminal complaint against her below.

At this writing, however, more online footprints exist, including a Facebook page in which she brands herself "Halima" Conley and lists her workplace as "Slave of Allah," plus a testimonial in which she describes how she sampled other religions before embracing Islam.

The current profile photo on the Halima Conley Facebook page.
The Halima Conley Facebook page was created on February 16 and was active for around a month. Not every post relates to Islamic matters; there are items about abortion, misogyny and even a meme declaring that because cocoa comes from a tree, chocolate counts as salad. But a majority relate to the Islamic faith. Among them is the aforementioned "Slave of Allah" workplace note (it connects to an Islam education page of the same name), plus a link to a video entitled "Rabbi Jewish converts to Islam, but why?" and, most notably in this context, a clip about British women joining the jihad in Syria.

There's also this post, directed as Conley's sisters:

In addition, the Islamic website Seeking the Truth features a testimonial written by Conley (still identifying herself as Shannon) back in October 2012. The essay traces Conley's attempts to find God through explorations of various religions -- efforts that led her to Islam. We've reproduced the entire testimonial at the end of this post, but here's an excerpt:
While flipping through channels for background noise, I happened across a show about Muslim responses to Islamophobia. Interested in anything having to do with terrorists, I decided to watch the program.

To this day, I cannot remember a word of what was said, I just remember being fed up with the constant berating of a religion that I was not informed enough about to even have an opinion on the subject! So while the program was on commercial I got up and asked my dad if I could read the family Quran again. He said yes, and I sat there in my room until the time I had to sleep, reading the Quran. And then, that same wondrous feeling that came over me at the youth conference came over me again, and I knew that Islam was my religion. Siratal mustaqim.

Now I am a Muslim, AlhamdulAllah. I have found my home, and God, in this religion and here I will stay until Allah lifts me from my grave.

Aside from the brief reference to an interest in terrorism, the essay doesn't promote violence. However, the criminal complaint against Conley maintains that she drifted in this direction over time -- and ultimately made plans to wed an alleged ISIS fighter and move to the Middle East.

Americans need to wake up unless they want to send their own children to fight these for profit wars.

Believing there is a difference between repubs and dems is your 1st mistake.  They are politicians,  they lie to keep their jobs, they lie for your vote. Demand term limits and  pay cuts, then watch these crooks do whatever it takes to ignore you.  Do you realize the same people that decide to send your children to fight their for profit wars, are the same people that make millions from their personal investments because of the wars ???   

EDUCATE YOUR DAMN SELF !!!

Yea you don't "get thrown into prison" for treason..You should be put in front of a firing squad, or hung on national tv.

This is a young lady that wants, no demands, to be taken seriously so I think we should do just that.  It is sad because I think she has obvious mental disturbances but those with mental disturbances are well known to kill and maim so we must remove them for our own safety.  What her problems are and how they started I don't have a clue.  I did find it odd that the family had a "family Quran" as nothing was said about them being of the Muslim faith.  So she obviously had some background in this religion from her home environment.  How that morphed from religion to wanting to be a terrorist is another thing we don't know but it's strange.  But it's not the job of law enforcement to try and understand the "why's and wherefores".  It is their job to protect us from someone like her who can justify in their own mind that it is right to hurt and kill children and other innocents in order to get what they want.


So I'm willing to take her seriously.  Let her wage the war she justifies in her own way....behind bars in a Federal prison.  Forever if needed.

@ObamaNazi 

isis is conservative, my historically illiterate little batshit crazy KKKultservatard.  Some have even translated "isis" into "tea bagger."

Remember, it was the worst president in modern history, reagan, that armed and trained bush Laden, and it took a GREAT AMERICAN like President Obama to end that conservative failure....you know, right about the time he was saving America's auto industry and ending the Reagan/Bush Second Great Republican Depression, AKA The Republican Greed and Corruption Depression. 

By the way, the name "obamanazi is cute, given that nazis were conservative and were funded by prescott bush:


His candor was refreshing, to say the least. But there are indeed some similarities between the right wing of the GOP, and the most reprehensible regime ever inflicted on mankind, Hitler and his Nazi rat henchmen.

1. The general feeling, whether spoken out right, or kept not-so-subtly-hidden, of being better than others. Nazis, like Republicans, and Republicans, like Nazis, think they’re better. They’re white. They don’t like, not necessarily in this order of dislike, niggers, spics, gooks, zips (Koreans), dinks (Chinese), wops, Jew kikes, Japs, wet-back greasers, camel-jockeys and sand niggers (A-rabs), Frogs, foreigners, immigrants, faggots and butch lesbians, and a host of others. Republicans often talk about (white) Americans as though they’re God’s chosen people, the only people who matter (in the war in Iraq, no mention has ever been made of the number of Iraqis killed because they don’t matter). The Nazis of course called themselves the Master Race.

2. Religious Xenophobia. God is a Republican. The Republicans tie religious belief to their supposed superiority, and to politics and policy-setting. They know God. You don’t. God favors them, not you, if you disagree with them. The German Nazis had belt buckles that read, “Gott Mitt Uns” (God is with us).

3. Patriotism as propaganda. Republicans consistently and improperly display the flag, often from car antennas, to demonstrate their patriotic resolve, when the flag was meant to be displayed properly, only in places where decorum would allow dignity. The flag was not meant to be a feckless political prop to back a right wing world viewpoint. For their part, the German Nazis had rallies with thousands of flags.

4.   Love of war. The Republicans used to pride themselves as the party that didn’t start wars, the Democrats did. No more. Today, they never saw a war they didn’t like (they won’t admit it), and view war not as a purely defensive measure as the Founding Fathers intended, but as a useful tool, an instrument of shaping foreign policy. The German Nazis use of war is well known to the world.

5.   Love of radio propaganda. Political talk radio is a largely right-wing creation, to counter what conservatives endlessly contend is the liberally biased mainstream media, and has mushroomed across the country, fed by angry white boys who like to listen to it. It is hosted by a host of American Joseph Goebbels (German minister of propaganda) imitators, who dispense false accusations, right-wing claptrap and mocking, thinly-disguised hate for those who disagree with them. Their most recognizable traits are smugness and the school-yard bully mean spirit.

6.   The cult of the leader (fuehrer). Democrats may praise the tough pluck of little Harry Truman, or the dignified wisdom of FDR, but mythologizing conservatives as some kind of gods brought down from on-high is a right-wing phenomenon that has recently grown in scope. Current deification efforts include among others, Ronald Reagan, John Wayne and the pre-posthumous Rush Limbaugh. The Germans of course had Hitler.

7.   Use of diversions. The Germans used the Reichstag fire of 1933 to suspend civil liberties under emergency decree. George W. Bush used 9-11 to invade Iraq under the guise of false weapons of mass destruction, and to re-make the Middle East. He did illegal wire taps of American citizens to make Americans supposedly safer. Both German and American citizens largely accepted these measures with docility and without debate or protest.

8.   Use of scapegoats. The Germans called people they didn’t like “sub-humans.” The right-wing Republicans call them “bad Americans.”

9.   Contempt for Democracy. Hitler said Democracy was corrupt, soft. Bush said being a dictator would be easier than being president.

10.   The blame game, or denial of bad news. Conservatives, in power for eight years, blame Obama for the country’s impending economic collapse. Hitler said his generals let him down.

@LibTardMeterIsHigh You are a liar...it was the worst president in modern history that armed, trained, and funded osama bush laden and reagan.s other cronies.  reagan loved bush Laden, Obama killed bush Laden.  In fact, it was reagan that said the taliban were the moral equivalent of the founding Liberals.

Funny how an idiot uses the term "tard" over and over.  It reflects what you heard over and over growing up. 

Middle eastern terrorists are conservatives, just like you, turdblossom.

PS  The FBI has identified conservative terrorist groups in this country as being a threat that has resulted in MORE HOME GROWN CONSERVATIVE TERRORISM THAN TERRORISM BY MIDDLE EASTERN CONSERVATIVES.

Remember, FACTS ARE LIBERAL.

That or you get to be president.  Rember when candidate reagan was negotiating with iranian hostage takers to delay the release of the hostages?  Or remember nixon's "secret" plan to end the viet nam war.  Yeat, that plan, the one that cost so many good American lives.

@DonkeyHotay  I went to your Profile and was astounded by the number of responses to any and everything.  It seems that you don't have a life except to live on the computer and watch everyone else live their lives.

You are a poor, sad puppy and to try to explain to you why this is not about Freedom of Association but is about protecting America would be a waste of my time as you don't appear to have the mental acuity to comprehend that concept.


Now go turn the television on and leave the adults alone.

In fact, ISIS is ALIGNED with U$ military and political interests in fighting against the Assad regime in Syria.

@LibTardMeterIsHigh @muhutdafuga Your list contains many conservatives, I meal lies.  As originally stated, you are a liar.  But that;s what makes you a republican.  Republicans, like you, are liars:

PolitiFact rated Republican claims to be "false" or "pants on fire" three times more often than it rated Democratic claims that way this year, according to a new study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University.

The Pulitzer prize-winning PolitiFact is run by the Tampa Bay Times, and its reporters and editors sort politicians' claims into one of six categories: true, mostly true, half true, mostly false, false, and pants on fire -- the last having an element of the "ridiculous." You can see how those ratings break down for both parties in the pie charts at right. A majority of Democratic claims were rated true; a majority of Republican claims were rated false. 

However, even if your lies were true, add all the deaths from KKKonservatives you claim to be Good American Liberals, and it is still a SMALL fraction of the innocent deaths from operation make a buck under bushITLER, all to get former reagan employee bush Laden.  You know, the one bush FAILED to deal with, leaving the reagan created problem for President Obama to deal with.

@fishingblues @muhutdafuga  You are more rattled than usual.

On a topical note, rONALD rEAGAN SAID HIS TALIBAN BROTHERS WERE THE MORAL EQUIVALENT TO THE FOUNDING FATHERS.  The Taliban IS the moral equivalent to the republiKKKult.
