How Jennifer Williams, A Tattooed, Blonde Muslim From Texas Became An ISIS Twitter Star

“You know you’re dealing with some serious Islamic hardliners when they blur out your face to protect Islamic modesty,” she wrote. “It’s also interesting that they chose to make it blurry rather than to black it out entirely—I suppose they did that so you could still tell that I was a blonde, white American girl. The holy grail of Muslim converts—so to speak.”It didn’t matter that she’s often tweeted out pro-LGBT or tried to get the “#No2ISIS” hashtag trending. Her followers tell her she’s now famous in Saudi Arabia.Williams said she doesn’t appreciate having her conversion story turned into ISIS propaganda. But she may end up just having to ride out the wave.In the meantime, she has a message for her new fans.“Try reading the Quran instead of Twitter. It changed my life for the better. It might do the same for you if you take the time to really understand what it says,” Williams wrote.
