Samira Ahmed Jassim, who has been referred to as the "Mother of the Believers," by Iraqi insurgents, has admitted to being a key part of a plot hatched by Ansar Al-Sunnah terrorists to build an army of Amazons willing to blow themselves up for Allah.According to The Telegraph, Jassim told a foreign news agency in an interview that the Al Qaeda-backed group organized the rapes - then sent the "broken women" to her house in Diyala.
Jassim said that she was "able to persuade women to become suicide bombers" by telling them it was the only way to reclaim their honor in a conservative Sunni society where rape victims are outcasts.
Jassim said the terrorists set her up in the house, from which she sold traditional robes to women. She said they threatened to bomb it if she did not cooperate.
"I worked with [Ansar AlSunnah] for a year and a half," she said.
Jassim's shocking story came to light on the same day that Iraqi officials played a chilling videotape in which she calmly described how she recruited female suicide bombers. (ANI)
