Terrorism that’s personal (NSFW)

That's one of the most disgustingly racist and gratuitous pieces of war propaganda I've seen yet.

 

It's not terrorism, it's not particular to 'the region' and it's not particular to women.  It took me seconds to find these reports of the same thing happening repeatedly in the UK too...

Come on now, all of those you list there are either random or semi-random attacks.

 

The only one that was premeditated:

 

"Her brother Mohammed Vakas, 26, and cousin Mohammed Adeel, 20, both of Walthamstow, north-east London, and a boy aged 17 deny conspiracy to murder."

 

I think a claim can be made that it is cultural. Especially when you look at the reasons given in the original link. How many cases of refusing to marry someone end up with an acid attack in UK?

 

It's a women's rights issue. The very nature of the attack is a pretty damning indication of the mentality: 'reject me and I'll make you ugly, thus rejected by everyone.'
