Malika El-Aroud

A suspected female terrorist known as the “Internet jihadist” was arrested last night on the eve of the European Union Summit in Brussels, a Belgian police source told CNN.

Malika El-Aroud — who once described the “love” she and her late terrorist husband felt for Osama bin Laden — was one of 14 suspected terrorists arrested for her alleged involvement in the plan to execute an attack during the EU summit. It’s been said that El-Aroud calls herself a female holy warrior for al-Qaeda and has become one of the most prominent “Internet jihadists” in Europe, spreading hate messages through chat rooms and discussion boards.

“It’s not my role to set off bombs — that’s ridiculous,” she said to The New York Times. “I have a weapon. It’s to write. It’s to speak out. That’s my jihad. You can do many things with words. Writing is also a bomb.”

Her late husband, Dahmane Abd al-Sattar, killed anti-Taliban resistance leader Ahmad Shah Massoud — two days before the September 11, 2001, attacks.

In a 2006 interview with CNN, El-Aroud proclaimed her “love” for deadly terrorist leader, Bin-Laden. “Most Muslims love Osama. It was he who helped the oppressed. It was he who stood up against the biggest enemy in the world, the United States. We love him for that.”

Police say that they had no time to waste. According to CNN’s source, the 14 detained had contacts at the “highest levels of al-Qaeda.”
