The Prada Intifada

Over two weeks ago, 19-year-old palestinian Fadi Aloon stabbed an Israeli teenager in an act of terror/attempted murder. He was thankfully shot dead before he could succeed in his killing mission.

Besides being a terrorist, Aloon was also quite the aspiring model, and seemingly middle-class or well-off, as photos of him show.

Jihad me at hello.

Aloon (apt name come to think of it) was not alone in not looking like a poverty-stricken young man driven by desperation.

This phenomenon has inspired our own Ryan to coin the term #PradaIntifada. I think I prefer #IntiPrada, but you get the idea.

So next time you hear about these terrorists being driven by desperation, remember these photos and realize they were more likely driven by limousine drivers.
