Norwegian Sisters Flee to Syria to Fight with Al-Qaeda

Damien McElroy and Valeria Criscione, Telegraph (London), October 21, 2013

An Interpol alert has been issued for two Norwegian sisters of Somalian origin who fled their homes to travel to Syria to fight with hardline Islamic groups in Syria.

Oslo has launched a global hunt for two Norwegian teenage girls of Somali origin who have allegedly travelled to Syria to support the rebels in the war-torn country, police said.

Police said in a statement the teenagers, aged 16 and 19, had been reported missing on Friday and had reportedly been spotted near the Syrian border.

“The family that reported the missing girls is deeply concerned by the purpose of the journey and fears they might have gone to Syria,” the statement read.

“The police have launched an international search of the girls through Interpol.”

The girls sent an email to their family, who have lived in Norway since 2000, to explain the reasons behind their departure.

“Muslims are currently under attack from all fronts and something needs to be done. We want to help the Muslims, and the only way to do so is to be with them in their pains and their joy,” they wrote, according to Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang.

“It is not enough to stay at home and send money. With this in mind, we have decided to go to Syria to help by any means,” they said.

The identity of the girls has not been revealed.

According to the tabloid, their family is not particularly religious, but the older girl recently became radicalised and started wearing a full-face veil, or niqab.

According to estimates from Norwegian intelligence, between 30 and 40 people have left Norway to take part in the Syrian conflict.

“Norwegian media have already reported on female cases, but a 16-year-old, that is a special case,” Norwegian Police Security Service spokesman Trond Hugubakken said.

  • I’m happy for Norway. They left.

    • Lagerstrom

      Hopefully the rest will follow…very soon.

  • Spartacus

    Yay ! I hope they die there !

  • Dave4088

    And no doubt they will be welcomed back with open arms by the decadent Norwegians…if they survive. They’ll probably bring their foaming at the mouth jihadist boy toys back to Norway.

    • me

      It’s not the Norwegians, it’s their government stooges and self-hating Whites, just like in Amerika.

      • Dave4088

        It’s also someone else that we are disallowed from mentioning.

      • I am not an “Islamophobe”. I prefer to think of myself as an Islamopath. I’m only afraid of heights.

        • me

          No fear, only repulsion and extreme prejudice.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I suffer from Islamo-nausea.

    “…two Norwegian sisters of Somalian origin…”

    Yes, I know that every nation has many people who have immigrated from other countries. And, sure, every country was, at some point, built by immigrants from somewhere.

    But – and call me a purist if you like – thinking about generic “Norwegians” doesn’t exactly conjure up images of Somalians (or anyone who resembles them) in my mind’s eye.

    • M.

      Germanic tribes had settled there a couple of millenia ago, and those who have lived in those lands remained mainly of that descendance. A unique Norwegian phenotype, language, etc, has emerged during these centuries, and produced what we call the Norwegian people, in the ethnic sense.
      And the Somalian people is not ethnically Norwegian. That’s why it doesn’t add up.
      You don’t have to be a purist to think so.

  • Extropico

    They are not Norwegian.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Of course they are not Norwegians, they are terrorists who should be hunted down and killed on sight by the Norwegian military’s special forces. They should never be allowed into any western nation, not even as a corpse. Let’s hope both of them die at the hands of other Somalis.

    • Spartacus

      Barbara Spectre would disagree….


      • Extropico

        May she meet many an African migrant demanding equality and a favor.

      • Sick of it

        Oh come on, the name gives it all away.

    • ThatguyinTN

      They may not be ‘Norwegian’ in the traditional sense but they MUST be considered and labeled Norwegian for the narrative. If they called them what they really were then how would all the muslim supporter the world over be able to accuse Norway of aggressions against a muslim country.

  • ncpride

    Two Norwegian sisters of Somalian origin……

    That sentence grates on my nerves like long fingernails scratching a chalkboard. They are no more Norwegian than I am Asian.

    • jay11

      I feel the same way. Leftists are really going full bore in trying to erase white national and racial identities. It’s happening everywhere. They purposefully use phrases like “Swede of Iraqi origin” or “Danish African” or (I heard this a few years ago) “Black Italians.”

      In the States here we’re all pretty much erased as a people already. “American” used to mean the white people of mixed euro heritage with maybe a dash of Cherokee or something here and there. Then it meant whites and blacks. Now it means anyone who can climb over a fence or stowaway on a place. I am so befuddled when I see crowds of mexis, Chinese and a gazillion others, all speaking their own languages and following their own cultures, and then leftists in the media tell me they are my brethren and my bosom countrymen.

      I was talking to a Columbian guy the other day and he was mentioning all the Mexicans and other latinos where we work, and he said matter-of-factly that they should all be proud ‘to be Americans.’ I wanted to shout, “But they’re not MY people! An American is someone who looks round-about like me, and who follows a certain set of cultural norms that are rooted by centuries of practice here – not some guy who can barely speak English, looks nothing like me, and whose values I abhor.” I mourn the loss of a great people and nation. Now it’s just about survival in a new polyglot of squabbling nations until the inevitable break up and race wars carve new nations out of the body of the land of our forefathers.

      • ncpride

        Great post, Jay….. I think you did a brilliant job of describing how the majority of us here feel, and possibly made ‘others’ who lurk here understand us. But that’s probably wishful thinking on my part.

  • “two Norwegian sisters of Somalian origin”

    “two black Somalian parasites abusing Norwegian hospitality”

  • bigone4u

    Let them make their way to the battlefield and be killed there rather than infest Norway like parasitic, destructive rats for the next 60 years.

  • Spartacus

    I’m sure Breivik was happy hearing about this .

  • M.

    They think that by giving Negroes and Arabs the Norwegian nationality, they’d stop being loyal to their countries of origin and ethnic peoples.
    And now they have to spend taxpayer money to go look for them because they’re “Norwegian”.

  • Brady

    This story doesn’t bother me. What would bother me is if they were ever allowed back to Norway.

  • Nice Guy

    They’re Somalians, not Norwegians.

  • Le Fox

    “Norwegians of Somalian origin” – So they really weren’t Norwegians? Great!

  • joesolargenius

    Do you think the So called Rebels have raped them yet ?
    Oh No! what a terrible thing to say , I am such an evil racist White Devil , please forgive me .

    • Sick of it

      Muslim women have been giving it up freely to al Qaeda in Syria.

      • joesolargenius

        Do you think these women have a choice or are they under pressure ,one of Saddam Husseins sons had a habit of having the police take 12 year old girls right out of the class room and bring them to him so he could rape them.

        • Sick of it

          I’ve read stories about muslim women going to wage a certain type of jihad where they service the men in a nation where they are at war for All-what’s-his-face.

          • joesolargenius

            Well I am sure that many of the sluttier muslim chicks are glad for the chance to fool around without being stoned to death.

  • Katherine McChesney

    How would Interpol recognize them? They all look alike.

    • ThatguyinTN

      That’s racist!!! /sarc

  • Lygeia

    Ok. Let’s get clear: NOT ethnic Norwegians.

    Somalis. Everybody clear now?

  • Hopefully they can cash in on what passes for Afterlife for insane Muslim chicks.

    • Sick of it

      Roasting in the lake of fire for all eternity?

  • Dave4088

    Actually I’m surprised these Somali sistas are leaving Norway since there’s no free stuff in Syria.

    • Extropico

      Actually, during their stay, should they survive, other Muslim tribes from wealthy oil-rich fiefdoms will contribute free things to them. Plus they get 72 virgin YT boys if they die.

  • IstvanIN

    Why search for them? Let them go.

    • Lagerstrom

      You don’t come back now y’hear?

  • DonReynolds

    He He……The gypsies will find them before the police will. After that, their plans will change.

  • MBlanc46

    If I were a Norwegian, I’d be ecstatic about that. Hell, I’m not a Norwegian, but I’m ecstatic about that.

  • bubo

    See how the media works? Anyone of any color or culture can be a “Norwegian”, “Swede”, “Brit”, “Frenchman”, “German” etc.

    They are trying to convince whites that we have no homeland and that the world, i.e. the brown world is entitled to our nations.

  • Sloppo

    “Norwegian sisters of Somalian origin”

    Anyone ever heard of a Chinese person of Somali origin?

  • Erasmus

    Somalians born in Norway are about as Norwegian as a person born a man becomes a woman with a sex-change operation. You can’t change nature.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Instead of saying “good riddance” to these radicalized islamo enemies, the stupid Norwegian politicians are scrambling to get them back INTO Norway. Pah!

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Maybe a more accurate– and less misleading — definition for negroes/pakis/arabs/asians who happen to be born in the county of Norway would be “Norwegian nationals”.

    • joesolargenius

      I have finally came up with the perfect name for them and it is (Negroegian)
      I just invented that word and I want credit for it.

  • Johnny99

    The MSM labeled one of the dead terrorists in the Kenya mall the same way. If I was born of 2 American parents in, say Japan, or Korea, or God forbid, Somalia, would I then be a Japanese American, a Korean American, or a Somali American? Of course not. And even if these 3 were, say, 3rd or even through some fluke, 20th generation, they are not, and could never ever be Norwegian.
