ISIS Terrorist Who Killed Two in Stabbing Attack Calls It an Islamic ‘War on Women’ (VIDEO)


Finland

An asylum seeker from Morocco who killed two and wounded eight in a vicious stabbing spree admits it was part of an Islamic “war on women.”

Abderrahman Bouanane went on the rampage last August in the town of Turku, Finland. Bouanane was an ISIS sympathizer who carried out the “lone wolf” attack.

Nearly all of his victims were women – two men who tried to help and stop Bouanane were injured. At the time, it appeared he was a “lone wolf” attacker out to punish the West for their war on terror, but in court on Tuesday, it was revealed that his hatred of women played a role as well.

Reuters reports.

A Moroccan man told a court in Finland he was “in war against women” when he went on a rampage in the Finnish city of Turku last year, stabbing two women to death and wounding eight more people, local media reported.

Abderrahman Bouanane, at the time a 22-year-old asylum seeker, spoke in district court on Tuesday, where he is on trial on charges of murder and attempted murder “with terrorist intent”.

Bouanane told the court that before the attacks last August, he had visited mosque and recorded a video in which he talked about U.S.-led air strikes in Syria and the fight for Islamic State. When he started the attacks on the market square, he said, he couldn’t control himself.

“I honestly felt like I was controlled remotely… The idea was to keep attacking as long as a head falls,” Bouanane said via an interpreter, according to the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat’s online edition.

Two women were killed and six more women were injured. Two men were hurt when they tried to help the women. Police stopped the attacks by shooting Bouanane in the leg.

A psychiatric assessment concluded that Bouanane was criminally responsible for the attacks. Police said he was a “lone wolf” who saw himself as a soldier for Islamic State. The militant group did not take responsibility for the attack.
