There are parts of the world that don’t make good vacation destinations. And a good rule of thumb is that any place where a significant percentage of the population supports putting down “infidels” so that they learn their proper place, as the Koran commands, is not a good vacation spot.
The beheading of 2 European women by Muslim terrorists is the latest example of the phenomenon.
Morocco is not the worst country in the region, and mostly nothing happens, but it has a terrorist population. And when it happens, it happens.
Horrific video footage has emerged on social media, appearing to depict the killings of two Scandinavian university students, one of whom is shown being decapitated, while they were hiking in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.
Moroccan authorities say nine more people have been arrested in the gruesome slayings, which have been linked to suspected jihadists. The remains of Danish student Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland were flown out of Casablanca on Friday, bound for Copenhagen, a Moroccan police spokesman said.
Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations said the latest arrests were made Thursday and Friday across the country. With four other men arrested earlier, that brings the total number of suspects in the case to 13.
Another 13 “lone wolves”.
