‘It’s Allah’s will’: Devout Muslims branded two Scandinavian women the ‘enemies of God’ as they filmed themselves decapitating one of the tourists in Morocco – ‘and posted video pledging allegiance to ISIS’

Two Scandinavian backpackers, Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, were stabbed and beheaded by Muslim terrorists while camping in Morocco.

  • Dane Louisa Jespersen, 24, and Norwegian Maren Ueland, 28, were backpacking
  • They were found dead near the village of Imlil in Morocco’s High Atlas mountains
  • ‘ISIS fanatics’ call the women ‘enemies of God’ in a clip of one of the murders
  • Killings can be connected to ISIS, the Danish intelligence said this morning
  • Three men have been arrested on a bus in Marrakesh over the gruesome killings
  • Islamic headchoppers sent the Morocco backpacker beheading video directly to the victims’ friends by private messenger as they gloated over the execution.
  • Horrifying screams are heard on a clip that appears to show a blonde woman being decapitated.

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.

‘Recovering Muslim’ Bosch Fawstin is on the case:

Jihadists just beheaded two young Scandinavian women, and then they sent videos of the beheadings to the friends of the victims through private messenger. This is an atrocity by an enemy at war with civilization. This alone is a good reason for a country to go to war and wipe out an enemy. I expect this kind of atrocity from evil savages who shouldn’t be breathing. What I don’t expect, what none of us should expect or accept, is so-called civilized people in the West who ignore the Islamic threat, who lie about It, denying its direct connection to Islam, and who dismiss its danger to civilization, even in the face of endless atrocities.

Separate footage has emerged today showing four men suspected of carrying out the attack pledging their alliance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Sitting in front of a black and white flag, one is seen brandishing a knife as they condemn ‘destruction caused by the warplanes of the Crusader alliance’. They also appear to taunt Morocco’s intelligence service, saying ‘where is your knowledge? For here we are…’

This morning, a series of fearsome knives were 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.
