We would like to open this number of the journal with the name of a city: Palmyra. There are many reasons to do that and, unfortunately, the first one is clear. Palmyra has been victim of a massacre by IS and it has become a symbol of the apparently blind violence of terrorism. The term “blind” magnifies and gives meaning to what happened, but it is the basic strategy of the so-called Islamic State that must be gathered.There was a perverse plan behind the attack to the stones of Palmyra.
