no, she's enjoying her first days of being Muslim.

She went to Jerusalem with her mother a few weeks ago and visited the Al Aqsa Mosque. At first they didn't want to let her in, they didn't believe she was a Muslim, but she recited the prayer (in Arabic) and they let her in.

Israel border police don't know quite what to make of her. A girl with a Jewish father, Catholic mother, with relatives in Tel Aviv who'se converted to Islam.
