One of these almost left for Syria/Iraq but was stopped at the airport and brought back. Nevertheless, this is very horrific what became of the girl's psyche (Hat tip: Front Page Magazine):
After it was revealed last Friday that a Jewish girl was among 100 French women and girls joining the brutal Islamic State (ISIS) terror group in Syria and Iraq, another Jewish girl has been revealed as having joined ISIS - and trying to blow up her parents' shop for jihad.

The girl, a 17-year-old identified only as A who grew up in a religious family and today covers her face with a traditional Muslim face veil, was set to leave for Syria but was caught before take off.

Anthropologist Dounia Bouzar, founder of the Center for the Prevention of Islamic Related Sects (CPDSI) that works to rescue French youth from radical Islamic brainwashing, told the Hebrew-language Channel 2 about the details of the case which she has been working on.

The girl referred to as A tried to leave for Syria, but at the last minute the Center succeeded in keeping her with her parents "so that the family connection won't be broken - that's important to prevent even more serious extremism," said Bouzar.

According to the anthropologist, A's case is unusual because she was not brainwashed from a recruiter, but rather "is a victim of brainwashing that she did to herself. Today her face is totally covered, she is an extreme anti-Semite and claims she is the victim of a conspiracy. It's a hard case and we still have a long way to go."

Understanding how A reached the point she arrived at is difficult, as she "grew up in a Jewish home that was religious but open with loving parents," said Bouzar.

The parents contacted Bouzar in March, and are "pretty affluent merchants who are trying to rescue A from this trap. Imagine the shock of the parents when they found out that their daughter intended to blow up their store!"

A was an outstanding student in a good high school in Paris, reports the anthropologist, but signs of a problem first were raised when her parents found their daughter's grades had dropped "from 90 to 10, and she started to refuse to leave home."

The Jewish girl turned ISIS fanatic doesn't fit the mold Bouzar reports seeing, in that "the overwhelming majority come from atheistic homes. It can be assumed that the lack of spiritual elements in education is one of the causes of extremism." However, Bouzar stresses A's parents "are also believers and also open."

One point about A's case that is similar to the trend is that she - like 70% of others trying to join jihad in Syria - is not Muslim.
Obviously, this is another example of Jewish women who lose track of reality and join a movement that only leads to serious hell for them. I'm not sure what they mean by "open". I would assume they mean the parents aren't of Haredi background. Yet the girl somehow became rebellious and demonstrated it in the worst ways possible, right down to wearing a veil to isolate herself from those who want to help her. It's very serious indeed, and I hope they're counseling her to make clear there's other alternatives.
