The Úlfhéðnar

The word berserker comes from the ancient connection to the Viking raiders, called the Úlfhéðnar. The word is berserkr.

His (Odin's) men rushed forwards without armour, were as mad as dogs or wolves, bit their shields, and were strong as bears or wild oxen, and killed people at a blow, but neither fire nor iron told upon them. This was called Berserkergang.[12]

One of my old comrads at Notre Dame was an expert in Old Norse, as was J. R. R. Tolkein. My friend taught me to look at Norse words carefully. Berserkers could have been drugged when they went into battle. They wore either bear skins or wolf skins in order to terrorize their enemies.

Berserkers could have been caught up in the sin of bloodlust, a real sin, where people desire and have a severely disordered passion for seeing blood shed and even drinking blood. Of course, this is satanic.

I myself studied many of the ancient and Medieval lays and sagas. I love Old English and Middle English, but do not know Old Norse.

Here is a selection from a poem on the berserkers.

 I'll ask of the berserks, you tasters of blood,
Those intrepid heroes, how are they treated,
Those who wade out into battle?
Wolf-skinned they are called. In battle
They bear bloody shields.
Red with blood are their spears when they come to fight.
They form a closed group.
The prince in his wisdom puts trust in such men
Who hack through enemy shields.[11] see link above
Do these people not remind you of some others we see today? Think about this.

“US + Australia, how does it feel that all 5 of us were born n raised in your lands, & now here thirsty for ur blood?”

An Australian jihadist widow has shared a series of propaganda pictures she says shows her 'five star jihad' lifestyle - and says she and other female jihadists are 'thirsty' for the blood of her former countrymen.
