Isis Battalion Leader from Kansas Was Given a 20-year Prison Sentence
Tuesday saw the 20-year prison term of a Kansas woman who was found guilty of commanding an ISIS unit. According to court records that were released in February, Allison Fluke-Ekren, 42, admitted in June to have expressed interest in planning terrorist actions in favor of ISIS on six different occasions between 2014 and 2017.
In letters to the court, Fluke-relatives Ekren’s called him a “monster.” On Tuesday, her adult daughter testified in court that her mother pressured her to wed an ISIS soldier who had raped her when she was just 13 years old.
“My mother is a monster who delights in tormenting kids for sex. My mother is a monster who is very good at suppressing her emotions for personal gain “She received a letter from her son, who isn’t identified in court filings the Justice Department filed last week. “My mother is a monster with no regard for her kids and no justification for what she does.”

Accused of killing a Spanish teacher in Iowa because of a poor grade. According to the Justice Department, Fluke Ekren taught over 100 women and young girls—some as young as 10—how to handle automatic guns, explosives, and suicide belts.
According to court filings, Allison Fluke-Ekren “brainwashed young females and groomed them to kill.” “She forged a path of fear, assaulting her own children physically, psychologically, emotionally, and sexually, plunging them into unimaginable depths of brutality.
Fluke-Ekren carried out terrorist attacks for three international terrorist groups over the course of at least eight years in Syria, Iraq, and Libya.” According to audio recordings revealed in court, she also advised her daughter to delete communications they had exchanged so she wouldn’t be discovered avoiding American law enforcement in Syria with her children. According to court documents, her daughter said that she would intentionally cause pain to her children by deciding what they each despised the most and doing harm to them in order to enjoy the experience.
“Fluke-Ekren’s adult daughter delivered a victim impact statement in court today describing the severe abuse that Fluke-Ekren inflicted upon her in Syria, including coercing her to marry an ISIS fighter, who then raped her, when she was only 13 years old.” https://t.co/RiVtL4WzUB

The DOJ claims that Fluke-Ekren was detained in Syria earlier this year and then brought to the United States. Fluke-Ekren, an American woman who also went by the name Umm Mohammed al-Amriki, was detained and accused of training women for ISIS, according to court documents. She came to Syria in 2012 and wed a “prominent” ISIS leader. According to the documents, she is multilingual and worked her way up to commanding her own all-female brigade.
According to court documents submitted in January, “Fluke-alleged Ekren’s ISIS-related conduct includes, but is not limited to, planning and recruiting assailants for a potential future attack on a college campus inside the United States and serving as the appointed leader and organizer of an ISIS military battalion located in Syria, known as the Khatib Nusaybah, in order to train women on the use of automatic firing AK-47 assault rifles, grenades.
She allegedly gave ISIS recruits accommodation, translated their leaders’ speeches, taught their radical theology, and trained kids in the use of weapons and suicide belts, according to the prosecution. According to Justice Department prosecutors, the 20-year sentence is insufficient.
Twenty years in prison, according to the prosecution, “is not enough to properly account for her horrible acts of terror and the incalculable harm that she has inflicted on many people throughout the world, including her own children.” A former friend who claimed to have spoken to Fluke-Ekren for the final time over ten years ago described her as being close to her family before gradually becoming more radicalized.

The former friend, who consented to be identified only by her last name, Farouk, said, “I told individuals who she was acquainted with in Kansas, I told them, ‘This girl is radicalized.'” When Fluke-Ekren resided in Kansas and then worked as a teacher in the Middle East, Farouk got to know her.
She acknowledged that Fluke-Ekren was a “wonderful mom” and that their kids were close, but added that her experiences as a teacher working in the Middle East during the Arab Spring unrest in 2010 and the accompanying refugee crisis had a significant impact on her.
