Doesn’t pass the smell test.
It very well might be she hadn’t a clue it was going for the jihad, then again, that would mean that her friend would have hid her Islam 101 sentiments from her at all times. Who in their right mind would carrying wads of cash in her shorts for anyone, let alone for someone whose husband is a convert to Islam?
NOTE: Proving her liberal qualities in court, even flirting with a defendant in another case, raises suspicion that she was putting on and act for the court and media, and got away with it. Also the cries of ”waycism” and ”Islamofauxbia” against those who charged her, is straight out of the Muslim Brotherhood handbook.

A student accused of funding terrorism in Syria walked free from court yesterday after she was cleared of trying to smuggle cash out of the UK in her knickers.
University student Nawal Msaad, 27, was caught with £16,000 in euros stuffed in her underwear at Heathrow as she attempted to board a flight to Istanbul.
Police believed she was due to hand the cash over to a jihadi. But after a month-long trial, a jury decided that Miss Msaad was tricked into being a mule by an old school friend.
Amal Elwahabi, 27, told Miss Msaad the money was for a house deposit, when it was in face destined for her husband Aine Davis who is thought to be fighting for ISIS in Syria

Amal El-Wahabi, who gave her the money, was convicted of fundraising for terrorism in Syria where her husband, a Muslim convert, was fighting with Islamic insurgents. Wahabi, 27, is the first Briton to be convicted under terror laws of funding jihadis.
Miss Msaad, whose model looks have earned her the nickname ‘jihottie’ on social media sites, wept as she was cleared. The London Metropolitan University human resources management undergraduate appeared during the trial to be a most unlikely jihadi sympathiser.
PART TIME SINGER BELIEVES ARREST WAS MOTIVATED BY RACE
Nawal Msaad believed she may have targeted because of her race and religion.
The part-time singer and student was held on remand for more than a month after her arrest, but maintained her innocence throughout.
Posting on Facebook shortly after her release on bail, she wrote: ‘I can’t help but wonder if I had been called Natalie from Surrey whether the authorities would have pressed terrorism charges against me.
‘I’d urge that we do not lose sight and go after British Muslims where the delicacy of the political climate means very little is needed to detain someone and charge them.’
She added: ‘Anyone out there who knows me will know I do not have any extremist views or support terrorism nor do I have any jihadist affiliations.
‘I hate terrorism – I am a British Muslim and they make religion not look peaceful.
‘We can all understand the importance of security within the current climate, however we need to be careful that we don’t breed racial hatred as that is exactly what terrorists would want – to create divisions.’
Attending the Old Bailey dressed in tight-fitting shirts, high heels, pink lipstick and thigh-skimming skirts, the glamorous brunette appeared to relish the limelight.
She posted regular updates on social media of what she was wearing to court.
Other images on her profile showed her modelling jewellery and wearing short black dresses for nights out.
During her trial, she was seen flirting with a defendant in another case, provoking a reprimand from a judge after the besotted man was seen waving at her in court.
Described by those close to her as being ‘attracted like a moth to the flame of publicity’, the would-be singer from Holloway, North London, posted a video on YouTube, professionally recorded in a studio weeks before her trial, of her performing a Jennifer Lopez song.
