The beheading of Palmira Silva

Here is a troubling story from across the pond.. A Christian woman of Italian descent was found beheaded in her garden in a London Suburb.. Palmira Silva, 82, beheaded..

Reuters reported that she was elderly and authorities are saying it was not a terrorist act..  So… we’re talking an every day run of the mill beheading as opposed to one of a terrorist nature. Right? Of course we see some more online sources have a bit more of the blanks filled in compared to Reuters.. such as the fact that it was a beheading taking place in the broad daylight.. the machete wielding man was ‘menacing’ others prior to this beheading.

And the other sort of unsaid fact: Edmonton has a higher than usual  Muslim population.

While this may not be a terror act, could it not be a terrorist inspired crime?

Oh, and finally, this: Locals in the town told reporters that the suspect beheader converted to Islam last year.
