#ISIS Strikes Again

If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.
Teen Stabs Her Mom to Death After Watching Hours of ISIS Videos

I bet this 16 year old girl wishes she could be reborn again. I bet she now wishes she hadn’t stabbed her mother 20 times with a kitchen knife, as if one time wasn’t enough. I bet she wishes she hadn’t watched those ISIS videos on YouTube, because her teenage life is virtually over now. She’ll be sitting in prison now until she’s 25, contemplating over what she did and maybe crying out for her mother to come back. Well, sorry girlie, it’s too late now for that. That Instagram picture of her tells the whole story of what she should be feeling like right now, though I don’t really know her actual emotions or if she has any conscious at all.

Lisa Borch from Denmark was sentenced to nine years in prison for brutally stabbing her mother, Tina Römer Holtegaard, in her sleep after watching hours of ISIS beheading videos on repeat. It seems as if the videos had a psychological effect on the then 15 year old girl and motivated her actions. Her 29-year old boyfriend, Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla, was also involved in the murder and was sentenced to 13 years in prison and will be expelled from Denmark after his sentence is served.

The killing happened in October of last year in the Kvissel, Denmark home and the two suspects finally were taken to court on September 15.


Her Instagram account blew up with hateful comments after the news came out about her crime, many of those comments underneath encouraging words for Borch and inspirational messages from her. It’s odd to see a girl that looked so normal and happy in her pictures and was looking to get a successful career in music and modeling and now those dreams are all over. It hurts me to see some of the comments telling Borch to “go kill herself” and changing the innocent meanings of her past pictures that came before the murder into being in connection with it.

Here is her opening descriptive line on her account:


Commenters are now saying she used those 24 hours to plan the killing of her mother, her previously innocuous messages being twisted into motivational messages for her October crime.

As well as this:


If this poor, obvious psychologically troubled girl could restart her life, she would know better than to be suckered into the persuasive teachings of ISIS. She would probably flee the country and go live in a place like the United States that is more sensible and civilized. It’s too bad she was born into the wrong society that doesn’t care what children are doing or what they are being exposed to. I don’t know what her mother was like or if she even knew Lisa was being brainwashed by those videos, but this is a very twisted and sick story that I felt compelled to discuss.

It seems as if she being a child and being heavily influenced played apart in this. She met an Islamic man and became heavily infatuated with him to the point that she was steered into becoming fascinated with the ISIS videos. A young girl like that can’t quite think properly for herself yet, in my opinion.

Borch and her mother on the right

From what I read, her relationship with her mother was not very great. There were constant arguments over her going out with an Islamic man who had connections with the evil ISIS empire. Her sister had fled away from home because she was tired of the constant tension between the two.

This is just another sad story involving the terrible organization that is ISIS. This time they planted thoughts in a teenager’s head and now her life is ruined. Those videos really need to be removed from YouTube.

    1. Thanks for your input, Judy. I was just saying she might have gotten some help for her obvious psychological issues in a better place that isn’t so corrupt. Of course, I was being a little biased.

  1. Thank you for your thoughtful, well-written and researched story. Interesting that this happened in Denmark, a country known at one time for saving every Jew that crossed its soil from going to concentration camps, often at the expense of its own citizens. I don’t know that it’s true that the country as a whole has become that callous today, although I don’t know that it’s not. Certainly you’ll find plenty of 15-year-olds dating outrageously older men here in the U.S,, whether it’s legal or not, and crimes of this sort have, in fact, been committed here. Regardless, this is a truly tragic story, one that I hope has a best possible ending, in that I hope she leaves prison a reformed person who goes on to live a productive life.

      This isn’t exactly what I like posting about, but I thought I would give it a try! There are a couple of points left out, like Lisa calling the cops and telling there them there had just been a murder. They come over and she is just calmly sitting on the couch with her iPhone and watching YouTube. The cops ask her where the mom is and she points upstairs. It’s like she didn’t even care or know what she did.

      1. It’s definitely a disturbing story and I think you did a good job in covering it. My points weren’t meant to belittle what you’d written, only to put some other perspective out there that may or may not have any validity in light of the facts, which you clearly have more knowledge of than I do. I wouldn’t steer away from writing about this stuff if I were you, because I think you showed maturity and a good balance of objectivity mixed with personal, intelligent reflections. This story is extremely disturbing and so, so sad. It makes you wonder what was going on in her relationship with her mother as well. Nothing the mother did could justify what happened to her, but was there some significant fault in her parenting that led her daughter to act on this fascination in such an egregious way? Again, I think you did a great job with this story and might want to consider writing more about it if your interest is strong enough and there is more information available, which it sounds like there might be.

      2. Thank you for the encouragement. I really do need the practice in covering stories like these from time to time. It really helps me become a better writer, being able to put things in my own words and reflect on them in an intelligent way. The more I do it, the more confident I will get. I will probably only return to this story if something else comes up in the investigation that requires an update.

        From what I read, her relationship with her mother wasn’t that great. They were arguing over her going out with an Islamic man. Her sister had walked out on her, tired of the constant bickering.

        There are definitely more stories out there that I could report on that are less disturbing and more fun to write about such as Facebook thinking about adding a dislike button on the site. It would help people have more freedom to their opinions but at the same time would cause some tension between some people on there.
