Danish Teenager Lisa Borch Stabs Her Mother to Death after Being Radicalized by Muslim Boyfriend Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla

The story of Danish teenager Lisa Borch brutally murdering her mother after being radicalized by her Muslim boyfriend reveals numerous problems arising from the ongoing clash of civilizations.

First, Borch met Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla at a refugee center. Abdulla was taken to Denmark as a refugee, even though he strongly supported the Islamic State and intended to propagate its message in Denmark.

Second, why are Danish teenage girls allowed to hang out at refugee centers?

Third, why did no one object to a 39-year-old Muslim refugee having a fifteen-year-old girlfriend? Were people so terrified of being called "racists" and "Islamophobes" that they refused to speak out?

Fourth, even as Borch announced her increasingly radical views (including her plan to commit murder), no one intervened. This girl was sitting around for hours a day watching ISIS propagation videos, and no one stepped in.

Can we talk about Islam yet?
Danish Teenager Lisa Borch
Telegraph—A Danish teenager stabbed her own mother to death after becoming radicalised by watching Islamic State videos of beheadings with an Islamist boyfriend twice her age.

Lisa Borch, then 15, attacked Tina Römer Holtegaard while she slept in her bed in her home in Kvissel, a tiny village near the northern tip of Jutland last October.

She stabbed her victim 20 times after spending hours on YouTube watching footage of the decapitations of the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (Isil)'s victims David Haines and Alan Henning.

The court heard how Ms Borch and Iraqi Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla, 39, the radical Muslim boyfriend sentenced for carrying out the murder with her, relaxed in the evenings by watching bloody Isil executions on YouTube.

After the murder, Ms Borch rang the police to report the crime.

She told police: “I heard my mother scream and I looked out the window and saw a white man running away. Please come here, there is blood everywhere." Then she calmly waited, the court heard.

When the police arrived, they discovered her calmly playing watching videos on her iPhone. When they asked where her mother was, she pointed upstairs without even pausing what she was watching.

The court heard how she had been radicalised by an unnamed Muslim man, who had broken off the relationship to return to Sweden. She reportedly then met Mr Abdulla at a refugee centre near her home.

Jens Holtegaard, Ms Borch’s stepfather, said that his stepdaughter remained a strong supporter of Isil,and said he feared she would become more radicalised during her nine-year sentence.

“Lisa is completely uncritically enthusiastic about everything related to the immigrant community. She loves to talk about Isil and their brutal behaviour in the Middle East,” he said. “I dare not imagine what she can develop into during imprisonment.”

Prosecutors told the court that Ms Borch had planned to travel to Syria to flight alongside Isil. (Continue Reading.)

And yet, because she has two XX chromosomes, I fully expect the sentence to be lenient even by European standards.

This should not be surprise to anyone. It is the ultimate goal to rule reign in all the world and if it has to be done one person at the time then that is what they will do.
It is also not a surprise that nobody stepped in to make a change. In a world where we are so politically correct, everyone is afraid to speak up against Islam so we rather just look the other way when we see trouble on the horizon instead of doing something about it

I don't see a problem with this on its face, but it depends on whether or not you are actually trying to dog-whistle "non-white immigrants", or "scary brown people within 100 metres of me". You may need to clarify.

If we can separate the argument about ideology from arguments about generalizing people, then maybe.

@Thomas Witt: It's assumed that you are conflating ideology with people, that's part of the issue.

David, have you thought of starting an online course or something to educate people on how to talk about Islam?

Did she just stab her mother or did she behead her? With the recent IKEA stabbings in Sweden it turned out that the victims were beheaded but the press reported it as a stabbing.

One of the stupidest comments I've ever read in my entire life (and I've read tens of thousands). How someone can read me talking about a refugee who supports ISIS and deliberately indoctrinates teenage girls while the government authorities are oblivious and somehow think that I'm targeting "non-whites" has some serious reading comprehension issues.

Evidently, it is. The people you want to be dialoging about this want to assume you would, no matter what issue you choose.

It's not controversial to say "Genghis Khan built an empire violently". The problem you face is what you plan to accomplish with these discussion.

You write that this ministry started when you approached a Muslim guy and talked about faith with him. Obviously, you don't want people to avoid, hide away from them. You wrote a great post about being able to disagree with ideology as opposed to hating them. How do we promote this in spite of Islamist violence threatening our way of life?

Pretty clear at this point that a lot of these people aren't "refugees". They're the very definition of wolves in sheep's clothing, infiltrating the flock to cause destruction & havoc.

They're "fleeing" the very thing they support... so they can spread its message. They're not running from anything - they're running for it, trying to spread it out as much as possible.

her dad is missing from the account. the word stepfather does appear

foofy, I understand what you're saying. The problem is that we can't sugarcoat anything. We have to be forthright about these problems - it would spur more people to act on them. How should we put it? "Teens are at risk for being radicalized by Islam and killing their parents" or "Teens have been radicalized and have killed their parents before"?

We can't coddle Muslims. By remaining silent or holding a book which they say is innocent but contains these violent teachings over their heads as they demand tolerance, they are being complacent with these atrocities. They need to know this. I couldn't take Mein Kampf and argue that people have misinterpreted what it taught, a message of peace, when it's very clearly written in there that the Jews should be killed, among other atrocious things. It would take far more than a gentle reminder to knock some sense into my head. I need something I can't argue with because the more gentle the rebuke, the more easily I can respond to it. That will galvanize what I believe in my head, convince me that any criticism of my beliefs can be responded to, and even train me with how to respond to them.

We have to be forthright. We don't have a choice. I don't, for my part, regret that we have to be assertive about it. I certainly would not be passive about my neighbor trying to keep an atomic bomb in his yard.

@KHII: I understand what you're saying about not coddling and re:prescribed violence.

However, I'm a bit concerned about people being confused and thinking sites like this are saying all Muslims are always plotting assymmetric warfare because that net will have a high risk of catching: 1) people who reject the idea almost entirely, and 2) people who only appreciated the concept in theory, or an unspecified future, or under some special set of circumstances.

This blog as of late is largely about catching false negatives for terrorism, but if we end up catching too many false positives for terrorism, then blame falls on people who were just having discussions or evangelizing.
