A mother of seven from the US state of Wisconsin faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a charge of“attempting to provide material support to terrorists.”

Prosecutors allege that Waheba Issa Dais used social media accounts she “took over from unwitting victims” to share information about making poisons, suicide vests, biological weapons, and explosives, and suggested potential events and locations to target in terrorist attacks in conversations she had with self-proclaimed IS members and supporters.

According to prosecutors, Dais initially pleaded not guilty to two charges, yet a second one was dropped in exchange for her changing her plea to guilty.

However, authorities were unable to connect her to any attacks or plots in the real world and also said she has a history of mental illness.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
