Don't have time to read the whole thread but I'm aware of the story..
The first thing we have to find out is if this was because of her religious beliefs or she suffered some mental health issues which in turn escalated
her response method. I'm leaning towards mental health issues here, she apparently screamed "I'm a terrorist" which is odd because the act itself
would have conveyed that, considering the link to Radical Islam and beheading. Why would she scream this unless she wanted it to be seen as such, she
also threatened to blow herself up yet when tackled she had no explosives, again the act of someone living a wish as opposed to a genuine suicide
bomber with a deliberate real act.
The trouble is that she came from a VERY religious and radical part of Russia and the Male treatment of women often is disgusting, mix in the
brainwashing and there's PLENTY of opportunity for severe mental health issues, its certainly not a sane act to attack a child let alone behead the
poor girl but my point here is, will people see this as a religious act or a severe mental health issue, I'm pretty sure that although radical
religious belief played its part that this was a woman falling into insanity.
Is this an excuse for the behaviour, of course not, Radical Islam is a threat to all with its antique ideals and actions and we have the right to
speak out against it but in this example I would say it was insanity first and foremost.
On a related note, I've had Somalian neighbours numerous times and in each case the women fresh in from Somali etc had pretty severe mental issues, we
spoke to the daughter of one woman because of her actions towards the local children, threats to throw acid (which thankfully was water) and throat
slitting gestures etc and the daughter confirmed she was undergoing psychiatric treatment and when I've been at my local mental health unit for my
depression you would be surprised (or not) just how many more strict Islamic women are there for treatment.
Am I being all liberal about this, no, not in the slightest, my stance on Radical Islam is known and very strong against it but sometimes the the mad
killer is a Radical Islamic and sometimes the mad killer ALSO just happens to be a Radical Islamic, its seeing the difference.
Personally I wish those with Radical viewpoints would just up sticks and go to a country that supports their ideal rather than follow their mandate to
convert or kill across the globe, sadly its not that easy..War is coming one day...
