    "I was angry. I thought someone was throwing rocks at my window," explains Yazdenpanah, who immediately ran out and grabbed his attacker, holding on until he was head-butted in the teeth and forced to let go.

    After the encounter, the 57-year-old tailor was rattled and called the police. But it was not until an officer pulled two bullets out of his window frame that he realised he may have been the target of a man police suspect has been shooting at people of immigrant origin in Malmoe for more than a year.

    Panic has spread in the southern Swedish city since police announced last week they were investigating whether a lone shooter with racist motives was behind some 15 attacks, killing one person and injuring many others, and may even have committed unsolved murders dating as far back as 2003.

    EDIT - Topic of Debate:

    How does this man compare and contrast to other terrorists? Is he somehow qualitatively different? Does anyone think this man is justified? If so, are other terrorists justified?

    I don't think he is comparable to other terrorists unless he is part of a larger campaign designed to achieve a certain ideological goal.

    Is he different than someone who performs terrorist acts in the name of radical Islam but has no connection to any terrorist group?

    He's likely motivated by racist ideology which is analogous to radical Islam, and radical Muslims are not ethnic minorities everywhere. What if the radical Muslim was in Iraq?

    EDIT - Or, perhaps, Pakistan? Or perhaps the radical Muslim was a north Mexican mestizo in Mexico terrorizing whites? What if said mestizo weren't Muslim but motivated by race like this guy?

    Or, what if he was a white man in the American Southwest motivated by race? Either way, racist mestizo or white in North Mexico or American Southwest respectively?

    You do realize your link has nothing to do with the OP.

    That an Iranian government official has the same last name as an Iranian immigrant tailor in Sweden isn't particulary shocking. There's 278 Yazdanpanah's on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/family/Yazdanpanah/1

    Not to mention that the man being discussed is the sniper, not the target.

    The whole problem is that Malmo is full of pea-brained redneck racist Swedes.
