Morocco: Muslims who murdered Scandinavian girls say killings were ‘Allah’s will,’ victims were ‘enemies of Allah’

Not that this has anything to do with…

“This morning, Denmark’s prime minister said the killings can be considered ‘politically motivated and thus an act of terror’. Lars Loekke Rasmussen said that ‘there are still dark forces that want to fight our values’ and ‘we must not give in.’”

But we don’t dare identify what exactly those dark forces are, eh, Lars?

“Ms Ueland’s mother, Irene, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: ‘Her priority was safety. The girls had taken all precautionary measures before embarking on this trip.’”

Except that it no doubt didn’t even occur to them that what they thought they knew about Morocco’s religion and culture might be inaccurate and designed to whitewash Islam, leaving them ill-informed about a threat that they actually did end up facing.

“An anti-terrorism rally is planned for Morocco’s capital on Saturday.”

Oh good, that will fix everything.

More on this story. “‘It’s Allah’s will’: Fanatics branded two Scandinavian women the ‘enemies of God’ as they filmed themselves decapitating one of the tourists in Morocco – then posted video pledging allegiance to ISIS,” by Jake Wallis Simons and Julian Robinson, MailOnline, December 20, 2018 (thanks to Robert):

Suspected ISIS terrorists branded two Scandinavian women the ‘enemies of God’ as they filmed themselves decapitating one of the tourists in Morocco.

Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, were found dead near the village of Imlil in Morocco’s High Atlas mountains on Monday.

A video showing the murder of one of the women has been recognised as genuine, Danish intelligence service said today adding that the killings can be connected to ISIS.

Men in the gruesome clip can be heard shouting ‘it’s Allah’s will’ while there are claims that the words ‘this is for Syria’ were used, in an apparent reference to Western bombing missions in the war-torn country.

Separate footage online appears to show four men suspected of carrying out the attack pledging their alliance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It comes as a picture emerged showing a series of fearsome knives found on a bus in Marrakesh as three suspects were arrested over the atrocity. Yesterday, a fourth man was held, suspected of belonging to an Islamic extremist group….

Meanwhile, preliminary investigations of a video shared on social media purporting to show the killing of one of the tourists had found that it was shot in a different place from where the bodies were found, a police source told Reuters.

‘The video and preliminary investigation according to the Moroccan authorities indicate that the killings may be related to the terrorist organisation Islamic State,’ the Danish intelligence service said in a statement.

‘This is a case of an unusually bestial killing of two totally innocent young women,’ it said.

This morning, Denmark’s prime minister said the killings can be considered ‘politically motivated and thus an act of terror’. Lars Loekke Rasmussen said that ‘there are still dark forces that want to fight our values’ and ‘we must not give in.’

Witnesses said that three men from Marrakesh were seen camping close to the women, and local media had earlier reported that sexual assault may have been the motive for the crime.

They were filmed fleeing the scene between 2am and 3am on Monday, on a camera belonging to another camper.

On Wednesday, police arrested a man from the city whose identity card was found at the murder scene….

Ms Ueland’s mother, Irene, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: ‘Her priority was safety. The girls had taken all precautionary measures before embarking on this trip.’

An anti-terrorism rally is planned for Morocco’s capital on Saturday.
