A Wisconsin mother is accused of hacking into several social media accounts spreading ISIS propaganda online – going so far as to direct an individual on how to make Ricin and use in a government facility or the water reservoir, the Department of Justice claims.

Waheba Issa Pillar, a 45-year-old man from Israel, who is now a legal U.S. resident, was charged Wednesday with an attempt to provide material support or resources to ISIS – which carries a maximum of 20 years imprisonment and $250,000 fine.

“Dais used multiple social media accounts that they hacked and took of the unwitting victims and their own social media platforms to offer and to facilitate its support,” the Ministry of Justice said in a statement. “They have detailed instructions on how to make Ricin and then suggested the individual introduction of the Ricin to a government post or reservoirs.

“In another post, she suggested targets for bombing attacks, street festivals and parties in the summer,” it added.

They also had a “virtual library of instructions on how to make bombs, biological weapons, poisons and suicide vests to help self-proclaimed ISIS members and supporters in their attack on the planning.”

Dais, of Cudahy, is a mother of two, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

It was Wednesday arrested and appeared before a federal court, with another hearing reportedly scheduled for Friday.
