  1. Thanks for updating KGS
    I wonder how Russia is going to respond to this.

    1. Good question Sophie, they might be heading south to Chechnya, or leave a crater where the kaaba once stood.

  2. Today Medvedev and Putin said there are ‘limits’ to what they can do to secure its citizens. There it is! There are limits to go on the offensive. Like declaring Islam banished and anyone Muslim must leave or convert to RO or some other religions. Nope it’s all about……poverty!!!! That’s what they said.
