Islam in Russia Russia


The Baron boils down all the essential oils where Russian Islam is concerned, revealing an altogether different picture of what’s actually happening inside Russia, something of which both the Russian political elite and the Western main stream media are desperately trying to paper over the best they can.

An excerpt:

The last paragraph provides a hint as to what might be causing all this newfound “feistiness”:

Commenting on the recent clashes between Nationalist hooligans and mostly Muslim immigrants from the Caucasus, Gainutdin emphasized the existence of tensions in the capital home to more than two million Muslims. He also pointed out the need to build new mosques in Moscow, where the faithful are forced to pray, for lack of space, “in the streets, on tram lines, and even in the courtyards of churches.” “This humiliation, this discriminatory policy against civil rights continues, before the eyes of Muslims around the world.”

Mr. Gainutdin is reminding the oligarchs who rule Russia that he has two million troops under his command in Russia’s capital city. This is a warning to Vladimir Putin to shorten the chain on his nationalist “hooligans”, or face the consequences. Judging by the roundup of young nationalists over the past week or so — the last I heard, a couple of thousand of them were in preventive detention — Mr. Putin has gotten the message.

  1. Russia’s fastest-growing religious group is its Muslims.

    “But they are not much like their counterparts in other countries…”

    Well, in Chechnya they turned out quite like their counterparts in other countries. And Putin’s sucking up to that lunatic Kadyrov will eventually come to bite him in the ass.

    The Moscovite Muslims who pray in the streets where they also slaughter thousands of sheep read the same Koran as the ones in Sowdi Barbaria.

    They might wash it down with vodka, but apart from that, does that really make them different? More pleasant? Less threatening?

    Then there is this little gem from Putin himself:

    Putin: ‘Wouldn’t give 10 kopecks for the health of somebody who disrespects the Koran’

    Putin also said this:

    If you are a Christian, you are in danger. Even if you are an atheist, you are in danger, and if you decide to convert to Islam, this will not save you, either, because traditional Islam is inimical to the conditions and objectives set by the terrorists.

    1. Yes, but when reading the entire GOV post, it’s clear that Putin fears the beast in his own midst. The Baron correctly points out that there is no such thing as Tartar Islam light.

  2. These Tartars or non-Russian people should also be aware, that Russia has ways, means and the will, to simply make people and troublesome minorities vanish.
