Nicole Lynn Mansfield, American Woman Converts to Islam, Joins Al Qaeda, Dies in Syria


There seems to have been a string of Jihadist convert murders and attempted murders. Two Muslims converts murdered a British soldier in London. A Muslim convert in France attempted to murder a French soldier. Now Nicole Lynn Mansfield, an American woman who married a Muslim and converted to his religion, went all the way, going off to fight with the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front in Syria and died there.

The report — from a Syrian media outlet called Breaking News on its website — sought to portray Mansfield as an extremist who was fighting with two other people from England; it said that government forces shot her dead along with her British companions. They reportedly had rifles, clips of ammunition, grenades and the flag of al-Nusra, a group related to al-Qaida.

“I’m sick over it,” Speelman said of her niece’s death. “I didn’t think she was (a terrorist), but God only knows.”

Speelman and other family members said Mansfield met an immigrant from the Arab world several years ago and married him. She then converted to Islam and started wearing the hijab.

They divorced about three years ago after he was able to get a green card that allowed him to stay long-term in the U.S.

About two to three years ago, Mansfield went to Dubai, upsetting her family, Speelman said. They urged her to come back, which she did.

Family members said they don’t know the name of the Arab man she married. They also said they don’t know when or why she went to Syria.

“It bothered me” that she converted and started wearing a headscarf, Speelman said.

But Nicole Mansfield, who has an 18-year-old daughter, was adamant that Islam was a good path to take.

She told people “that the best way of life was to be a Muslim. And that women should wear scarves … women should always cover their head,” Nicole’s grandmother, Carole Mansfield, 72, told the Free Press.

Speelman’s mother, Monica Mansfield Speelman, told the Detroit Free Press that her niece was a convert to Islam who married an Arab immigrant several years ago but later divorced him. The family was not happy about Mansfield’s conversion to Islam, said Monica Speelman and Mansfield’s grandmother, Carole Mansfield.

Nicole Mansfield was raised as a Baptist and her father was a General Motors production worker, the family said. She quit high school after becoming pregnant but later earned her GED, attended community college and worked in home health care for 10 years, they said.

“She had a heart of gold” but was easily influenced by others, Carole Mansfield said. “I think she could have been brain washed.”

The media will probably try to spin Nicole Lynn Mansfield’s death into war propaganda, but she went to a war zone and she likely was Sunni, which meant she was on the side of the rebels. The British Muslims headed to Syria are largely Al Qaeda. If she was with them, then she was an enemy of the United States.

It’s probably best that she died over there. If she was willing to link up with British Jihadists in Syria, the odds are good that she would have seen her way clear to joining in on a terrorist attack in the United States.

Like any other cult, Islam is good at sucking people in and turning them into zombie fanatics for its cause. There have been too many cases of converts to Islam trying to prove their worth through acts of murder. All this is yet another reminder that a mosque on American soil is a recruitment center for international terrorism.

    Talk about your "feel good" headlines!

    I'm glad she died on foreign soil rather than blow something up in the U.S. The trial will not be lengthy and we don't even have to pay for the funeral.

    Perhaps if our "education" system wasn't turning entire generations of males into metrosexual Nancy boys, our women wouldn't have to look to Islam to find strong willed men to marry?

      Good point. Macho, being made obsolete in our Country,

        I'll bet her parents are liberals. That means they're all for using the school system to psychologically neuter our male children. So, in a roundabout way…they are responsible for their own child's death.

      “Perhaps if our “education” system wasn’t turning entire generations of males into metrosexual Nancy boys, our women wouldn’t have to look to Islam to find strong willed men to marry?”

      So your argument is that Islam produces strong willed men (what ever that means) which is a good thing hence Islam is actually capable of some good? Or strong willed men subject their women? And how do you come to the conclusion that the American education system is turning boys into metrosexual boys? Isn’t that more of a cultural issue?

      “Good point. Macho, being made obsolete in our Country.”

      Since when was “macho” ever a good thing?

      “I’ll bet her parents are liberals. That means they’re all for using the school system to psychologically neuter our male children. So, in a roundabout way…they are responsible for their own child’s death.”

      Firstly that’s a vile thing to say, claiming their responsible for their daughters death. Besides it says she was raised a Baptist – so her parents are hardly likely to be liberals. It says she left high school after becoming pregnant, probably by one of those supposedly superior white men. Her grandmother said she was easily influenced by other people. So a possible explanation might be that she indeed had low self esteem and a tendency to try and please people plus lacked a proper education.

    "Mansfield met an immigrant from the Arab world several years ago and married him."….low self esteem white girl…sad case.

    "the flag of al-Nusra, a group related to al-Qaida."….Black Flag muslim killers…..the most violent of all.

      Obama will probably mourn her passing. Then work to find a way to arm them even more.

  • BS77

    Convert. Join Al Queda. Die. Oh BOOOO HOOOOO.

    • Roger

      It almost sounds like a certain equality between men and women under islam finally.

  • Questions

    The author Greenfield is too focused on Islamic "brainwashing." The truth is a lot of young American women voluntarily go for this brand of male exotica. They fall in "love"; convert to Islam; marry; and, in the end, regret it — assuming they get to live.

    File this case, along with Katharine Russell, under "Stupid White Chicks."

      "The truth is a lot of young American women voluntarily go for this brand of male exotica…"

      Obama's mother sure did….another sad little low self esteem white girl who did it not once; but twice.

    • BS77

      Reminds me a little of that film Not Without My Daughter…where the naive American woman marries the Iranian…who takes her back to Iran ….and then shows his true nature…as a barbarian thug. Luckily she escaped…..

        This is based on the true story of an American woman, Betty Mahmood. Sally Field played the wife/mother in that 1990 movie.

  • Charley

    If you deny the TRUTH about the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and reject Jesus Christ who is Lord of all and who offers us salvation and abundant life, then you are open to all the many lies, including the big lie called the Koran.

  • john

    John McCain was just in Syria meeting with the same rebel forces. Does that mean John McCain is Al Qaeda?

    • gee59

      Just stupid

  • guest

    Aren't these exactly the people that John McCain wants to arm? And if so, doesn't that make him subject to indefinite detention under the NDAA?

    • Cathy

      It should but … it's not going to happen. All the current scandals? No impeachments … no heads are going to roll … count on it. The dramatic transformation of American by the Marxist/Islamic appeasing Barack Obama is happening unchallenged by the so called opposition composed of progressives who deceptively ran for election under the Republican banner.

    She died honorably…

    …like a good little turncoat…

  • ziggy zoggy

    Best recruitment story ever. The bit where she was shot dead warmed my heart. I hope she shares a pit with Rachel Corrie.

  • Cathy

    Differing factions of Muslims fight for control among themselves but … when all is said and done … ALL factions are one in their mutual hate all people/all nations who do not bow to Islam. Affording ANY faction of Islam billions in aid to defeat another faction is beyond logic.

    I'm no fan of boy assad, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's killing more al qaeda than we are these days.

      There appears to be different levels of Islamic evil but … it is just an appearance. Evil is evil.

        It's like saddam fighting Khomeini, "It's a pity they can't both lose." (One of the few times I've agreed with Kissinger.)

  • gee59

    She's a good Muslim now

  • charlotte

    Good riddance of bad rubbish. I wish they'd all leave to fight in Syria.

    How much do you want to bet she was on welfare and has not had a job in years…?

  • Sebastian

    What’s up with all the blatant racism here?! Just because a white girl marries a none-white guy doesn’t mean she has low self esteem. I mean WTF?! Your argument is obviously that white girls who marry none whites don’t feel they are good enough for a white guy. The suggestion being that none white males are inferior to whites in some way.
