Iraqi Instagram model Tara Faris was killed by unidentified gunmen in Baghdad on Friday, according to local media reports cited by RT. Hers is the latest in a string of murders across the country targeting female activists; in each case, extremist groups are the main suspects….
“Extremist groups” like the transnational corporate elite?
Was this hit religiously motivated or politically motivated? As the only female among the 7 top social media public figures, her influence was no doubt important in iraqi society especially among women, the biggest and most economically important underclass of any patriarchal society. Gender transcends social/economic strata and is thus a very important target for social management and control.
Just yesterday she was announced as the 6th most followed Iraqi person on social media. pic.twitter.com/NH282KZNYq
