    Masked Gunman Kills Russian Priest At Moscow Church


    By REUTERS
    Published: November 20, 2009

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - A masked gunman entered a church and murdered a Russian Orthodox priest who had received death threats for converting Muslims to Christianity and criticizing Islam, prosecutors and church officials said Friday.

    The killing could threaten delicate relations between the powerful majority Russian Orthodox Church, which has close ties to the Kremlin, and the country's growing Muslim minority of about 20 million.

    The gunman approached priest Daniil Sysoyev, 34, in St Thomas Church in southern Moscow Thursday night, checked his name and then opened fire with a pistol, a spokesman for the investigating committee of the Prosecutor-General's office said.

    "The main theory is that religious motives are behind the crime," spokesman Anatoly Bagmet said.

    Sysoyev died on the way to hospital. His choirmaster was injured in the attack, Bagmet said, and is in hospital under armed guard.

    Sysoyev was from Tatarstan, a predominantly Muslim region of Russia on the Volga river. He was threatened after preaching to Muslims and Christians from other denominations.

    "I have received 10 threats via e-mail that I shall have my head cut off (if I do not stop preaching to Muslims)," Sysoyev stated on a television program in February 2008, according to Interfax. "As I see it, it is a sin not to preach to Muslims."

    Russia is home to Europe's largest Muslim community and Islam is the country's second-biggest faith, something which Sysoyev criticized.

    "Islam is far from being a religion in the way we understand it," he said in one of his video lectures posted on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJNPSyh4zFk&feature=related).

    "Islam can be rather compared with projects like National Socialism or the Communist party seeking to create God's kingdom on Earth using humanly instruments," he added.

    He also wrote books including "An Orthodox Response to Islam" and "Marrying a Muslim," in which he advised Russian women against taking a Muslim partner.

    Russia has seen a religious revival after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the dominant Orthodox Church has become an important political force. Its leader, Patriarch Kirill, is frequently seen in public with Russian and foreign leaders.

    But Orthodox bishops have complained that rival Christian denominations are seeking to make converts on its territory and Islam is spreading fast among a sprawling community of migrants from predominantly Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union.

    The Russian Patriarch's press service refused to comment on the murder but some of Sysoyev's Orthodox colleagues referred to Muslim attacks on him prior to the killing.

    "Father Daniil ... has been periodically receiving e-mails which said he will be treated as 'infidel' if he did not stop polemics with Muslims," Kiril Frolov, the head of the Orthodox Experts Association, told Interfax news agency.

    Russia's Chief Mufti Ravil Gainuddin expressed his condolences to the Orthodox Church and to Sysoyev's family. He cautioned against assigning blame prematurely or speculating about the motives for the killing.

    "We want to say that we oppose any expressions of terrorism and extremism," he told reporters. "Islam denounces terror and the murder of an imam, an orthodox priest, is an awful sin..."

    Sysoyev also preached against small religious groupings such as Seventh-day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses, viewed as "totalitarian sects" by the Orthodox Church.

    The thing is, they probably are. From what I gathered, most muslims just live their lives with everyone else. Apparently (some people who met this former cleric) adresses him as almost an ultranationalist, a bigot if you will.

    He apparently used to preach hate messages to people about how evil every religion is but the Orthodox. Now, how do we know that a muslim did it? It could almost be anyone that did it. Muslim most likely, but yeah. And if it was a muslim, was he ethnic Russia? Was he an extremist himself?

    You see, these people don't raise arms if they are properly educated and have jobs. A lot of extremists in Russia are not from Russia to begin with. Heck, they may hold a fake Russian passport.

    Russian Intelligence Says Bomb Caused Deadly Train Crash


    Last updated (GMT/UTC): 28.11.2009 15:44

    (RFE/RL) -- Russia’s domestic intelligence service has said that the train derailment that killed about 30 people and injured nearly 100 was caused by a bomb.

    The Nevsky Express traveling from Moscow to St. Petersburg came off the tracks late at night on November 27. A number of people are still unaccounted for.

    In a televised meeting with President Dmitry Medvedev, the head of the FSB security service, Alexander Bortnikov, said that “criminal experts say that based on preliminary findings, a bomb equivalent to 7 seven kilograms of TNT was detonated.”

    A spokesman for investigators, Vladimir Markin, said they had found elements of an explosive device at the crash site.

    "A crater was discovered, 1.5 meters in diameter and 0.7-meters deep, as well as fragments of an explosive device," Markin said. "We can say with certainty that this was a terrorist act. Therefore an investigation has been opened on two counts -- terrorism and illegal arms trafficking."

    "The investigation is in progress now; it will take a certain amount of time,” said Vladimir Yakunin, the head of Russia’s national railway company. “Our forces are working at full scale, we are waiting for the permission to evacuate the wagons that are still on the rails, the locomotive has been put back on the rails, and after we have finished the work around the crater, we will start evacuating the wagons that were most severely damaged."

    Russian transport officials said trains were being diverted along alternate lines on one of the country's busiest routes.

    The derailment was Russia's worst train crash in years.

    In 2007, 30 people were injured when a train operating on the same line was derailed after an explosion damaged the rail track.

    The men accused of the 2007 attack are suspected of having links to Chechen rebels.

    Militants claimed responsibility

    Militants claim Russian train bombing: rebel website
    Updated at: 1145 PST, Wednesday, December 02, 2009
    MOSCOW: Militants from the North Caucasus have claimed responsibility for the deadly bombing of a Russian passenger train, according to a statement posted Wednesday on a website linked to Chechen rebels.

    Source

    So what are Russia's options? What can they do to deal with these scumbags? Sitting around and waiting for the problem to solve itself is not working, and has not been for a while. Russia needs to either isolate these regions, or start forcing people to move around (in other words, integrate other people of other religions there), or they will destine to break away.

    So much can be done, but so little is being done. Hopefully a pollitician in Russia would pull their head out of their ass, and do something about these militants and growing islamic problem. Heck, the soviets had it right, ban religion.

    Well, according to Kadyrov:
    "Umarov is an international terrorist, a procreation of foreign special services and has nothing in common with the Chechen people. We will get him no matter where he is," Kadyrov said adding that "for us [Chechens], as well as for all Russians, for me personally, he is enemy number one."
    RIAN
    that these terrorists are just scumbags running around and causing shit because of foreign support. They are nowhere near supported by the people and most people want them gone. So in other words, they are simply just gang bangers to a higher degree.

    What can you do? It is hard, but set up checkpoints so people when traveling from one city to another, needs to be investigated. With today's technologies, you would be able to easily scan a car for bombs, or possible of bombs (or just use dogs). Once you set up checkpoints, what can these guys do, but hide in the mountains?

    Bombing at Moscow airport called terrorist attack

    By NATALIYA VASILYEVA, Associated Press – Mon Jan 24, 6:40 pm ET

    MOSCOW – Terrorists struck again in the heart of Russia, with a suicide bomber blowing himself up Monday in Moscow's busiest airport and turning its international arrivals terminal into a smoky, blood-spattered hall of dismembered bodies, screaming survivors and abandoned suitcases. At least 35 people were killed, including two British travelers.
    No one claimed responsibility for the blast at Domodedovo Airport that also wounded 180 people, although Islamic militants in the southern Russian region of Chechnya have been blamed for previous attacks in Moscow, including a double suicide bombing on the capital's subway system in March 2010 that resulted in 40 deaths.
    The Interfax news agency said the head of the suspected bomber had been found.
    President Dmitry Medvedev called it a terrorist attack and immediately tightened security at Moscow's two other commercial airports and other key transportation facilities.
    It was the second time in seven years that Domodedovo was involved in a terrorist attack: In 2004, two female suicide bombers penetrated the lax security there, illegally bought tickets from airport personnel and boarded planes that exploded in flight and killed 90 people.
    Medvedev canceled plans to travel Tuesday to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he aimed to promote Russia as a profitable investment haven to world business leaders.
    Prime Minister Vladimir Putin ordered the health minister to send her deputies to hospitals to make sure the injured were getting the medical care they needed.

    AFP/NTV
    Russians still look to the tough-talking Putin as the leader they trust to guarantee their security, and Monday's attack was likely to strengthen the position of the security forces that form part of his base.
    Large-scale battles in Chechnya ended years ago, following two devastating wars that Russia waged with the republic's separatists, but Islamic militants have continued to carry out suicide bombings and other attacks. Most have been in Chechnya and other predominantly Muslim provinces in the southern Caucasus region, but some have targeted Moscow, including its subways, trains and even a theater.
    In Washington, President Barack Obama condemned the "outrageous act of terrorism" and offered any assistance. Those comments were echoed by British Prime Minister David Cameron, who spoke with Medvedev and assured him of his complete support.
    Monday's attack was most likely carried out by a suicide bomber and "attempts were being made to identify him," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said, adding that the attacker appeared to have been wearing the explosives on a belt.
    The blast came at 4:32 p.m., when hundreds of passengers and workers were in a loosely guarded part of the terminal. They were sprayed with shrapnel of screws and ball bearings, intended to cause as many casualties as possible.
    The terminal filled with thick smoke as witnesses described a scene of horror.
    "There was lots of blood, severed legs flying around," said Yelena Zatserkovnaya, a Lufthansa official.
    Airport workers turned baggage carts into makeshift stretchers to wheel the wounded to ambulances outside, she said.
    Amateur video showed a pile of bodies on the floor, with other dead scattered around. Luggage also was strewn around the terminal and several small fires burned. A dazed man in a suit pushed a baggage cart through the haze.
    Driver Artyom Zhilenkov said he was standing just a few yards (meters) away from a man who may have been the suicide bomber. He saw an explosion on or near the man, whose suitcase was on fire.
    Zhilenkov said he initially thought he himself had been injured, but doctors said he was just coated in the blood of others.
    "The guy standing next to me was torn to pieces," he said.
    Car rental agent Alexei Spiridonov, 25, was at his desk when the blast struck about 100 yards (meters) away and "threw me against the wall," he said.
    "People were panicking, rushing out of the hall or looking for their relatives. There were people just lying in blood," Spiridonov said.
    Sergei Lavochkin, who was waiting for a friend to arrive from Cuba, told Rossiya 24 television: "I heard a loud bang, saw plastic panels falling down from the ceiling and heard people screaming. Then people started running away."
    The Emergencies Ministry said 35 people were killed, 86 hospitalized with injuries and 94 were given medical treatment. Among the dead were two British travelers, Markin said.
    Domodedovo was briefly closed to air traffic immediately after the blast, but soon reopened. Hours later, passengers arriving for their flights lined up outside waiting to pass through metal detectors that had been installed at the entrances.
    Aviation security experts have been warning since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that the crowds at many airports present tempting targets to suicide bombers. Arrivals halls are usually open to anyone.
    "Airports are by their nature crowded places, with meeters, greeters, commercial businesses, and so on," said Philip Baum, the editor of Aviation Security International, a London-based publication.
    The attack also called into question Russia's ability to safely host major international events like the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and the 2018 World Cup.
    FIFA President Sepp Blatter was in St. Petersburg over the weekend to formally award Russia the 2018 World Cup. Prior to the signing, Blatter told Putin that he was certain FIFA had made the right choice.
    Built in 1964, Domodedovo is located 26 miles (42 kilometers) southeast of Moscow and is the largest of the three major airports that serve the capital, handling more than 22 million people last year. It is generally regarded as Moscow's most modern airport, but its security has been called into question.
    The airport insists security is one of its top priorities, saying on its website that its "cutting-edge operations technology guarantees the safety of passengers' and guests' lives."
    It says 77 airlines offer regular flights to Domodedovo, serving 241 international and national routes.

    This does indeed look like another dirty back door attack by NATO, and as usual the castrated Putin and his lackey will just stay put and swallow it......Rolling Eyes

    The tempo of the terror campaign is being notched up by both the U.S. and NATO against Russia. I am sure Putin knows who paid these Chechens to do this, but is he going to do something about it?


    Moscow Airport Bombing: Prime Suspects are Chechen Networks Backed by NATO Intelligence Circles

    Check out this video:

    http://tarpley.net/2011/01/25/moscow-airport-bombing-prime-suspects-are-chechen-networks-backed-by-nato-intelligence-circles/

    Recent causes of US-UK animus towards Russia include the Khodorkhovsky verdict (the US position being that a finance oligarch that rich should of course be above the law), the inability of NATO to foment a gas crisis this winter, President Medvedev’s endorsement of a Palestinian state (re-affirming the 1988 decision by the USSR), and Afghan President Karzai’s visit to Moscow, where he created the premises for a long-term post-NATO strategic relationship with Russia including the Salang tunnel, hydroelectric plants, and a Turkmenistan-India gas pipeline the US has been seeking to block. Also worth noting is that, in a recent Wikileaks document dump, the impotent gaggle of marginal Russia opposition figuires assembled by Obama’s lightweight NSC Russia director Michael McFaul demonstrated a special desire to oust Chechen President Razman Kadyrov, a Putin ally. Are their alleged human rights concerns only a cover story for their fear that Kadyrov is actually suppressing NATO-backed terrorism in Chechenia?

    I am sure over the next few days we will read about various shoot outs and militants killed in raids and I for one am looking forward to seeing the videos showing the dead bomb makers.

    These idiots should be made examples of... If they are muslim radicals then everything about their funeral arrangements should be offensive to muslims because killing other people like this shows they weren't real muslims at all.

    Cremate them with unclean animals like Pigs and then scatter their ashes somewhere offensive to Muslims like a pig farm.

    Real muslims should not be offended because these people are clearly not muslim and are bringing the religion into disrepute. Eternal damnation for an infidel is fairly extreme so the punishment for someone who understands the muslim religion and yet kills randomly in its name should be given a harsher punishment.

    No disrespect meant to real Muslims who don't go around killing people at random because they are unhappy about something.

    That movie was hilarious! lol!

    Wonder if Putin can identify how much the Black ops outfit got paid by the CIA handlers or Saudi's to carry out this terror attack?

    As soon as Putin grows a pair........Boom!......there comes an 'Al-CIAda' type terror attack.

    Gotta love NATO and the CIA for pulling this type of thing off, while Putin looks on in disbelief. He's powerless!

    P.S. Just wait for round two, when Sakashvilli's handlers in Washington goad him into action again like a wild Pig! attack

    That I suppose is a right punishment. you are right. One can say that if proved that bombing were done by Muslims in the name of religion then your proposed punishments sill work well against their strain of religion. Care though must be taken not to in any way hurt the divine scriptures because such acts are disapproved in the said scriptures.

    Also Russians also mustnt pit this over to AlQaeda or I will feel that even Russians are dumb enough to be over-witted by smart Americans & their WOT portfolio

    I must admit I laughed out loud several times over RAMBO III.

    My particular favourite was near the end when the heroic Muj charged the evil commie Soviets on horseback... the evil commie forces including a ZSU-23-4 that could have killed all the Muj on its own... not just comic book stuff, but dumb comic book stuff... lol!

    Appeals to the "Red Dawn" fans of course.

    BTW why do you keep talking about Putin needing to grow a pair?

    I would think it is more a case of Medvedev needing to make sure what needs to be done is done... and I am pretty confident he will.

    That I suppose is a right punishment. you are right. One can say that if proved that bombing were done by Muslims in the name of religion then your proposed punishments sill work well against their strain of religion. Care though must be taken not to in any way hurt the divine scriptures because such acts are disapproved in the said scriptures.

    I think the best way to do it would be to have the muslim leaders in the place these aholes come from administer the punishment. This would make sure it is not offensive to actual muslims, and might increase the shame for those taking the religion and using it for their own political aims. Such abuse should not be tolerated.

    It will show that real muslims are against terrorism and it will also allow the Russian government to engage the muslim community too.

    Of course if it is the Georgians wanting to upset things for the Sochi olympics and the 2018 soccer world cup then it is time for regime change...

    Regarding Al Quada, I fully agree, though they might mention it to try to dissuade Americans supporting the bombers.

A few months ago after banning the S-300 sale, and rescinding many other defense contracts on supply of equipment, he was saying that Iran is this and Iran is that and that they are dishonest and evil and Moslem and terrorist and weapons of mass destruction, and they have a nontransparent nuke program.....blah blah blah.....But, upon getting it in the ass from both NATO and the CIA, he's suddenly changed his tune now?......bhuwahahahahaaa...lol!

    Medvedev tells leaders at Davos that there is no proof Iran is building nuclear weapons


    By The Associated Press (CP) – 13 hours ago

    DAVOS, Switzerland — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says the international community has no proof that Iran is building nuclear weapons.

    Medvedev told world leaders and top executives on Wednesday that he spoke recently to Iran's president and encouraged him to demonstrate that his country's nuclear activities are peaceful.

    Medvedev said, "the international community so far has no information that Iran is building nuclear weapons."

    Iran has been hit with four sets of U.N. sanctions over its nuclear program, which the Iranian government says is for civilian nuclear energy. The United States and its allies suspect it is seeking nuclear weapons. Russia is among six world powers that have tried to get Iran to open up its atomic program to international scrutiny.

    Does this mean he's actually grown a pair now Gary? Shocked

    If this attack gets pinned on Sakashvilli, I believe that it would trigger an automatic Russian attack for regime change in Georgia and a few other countries. I can't believe that Sakashvilli is openly saying that he's done it, and it was pay back time! Boy the U.S. must be backing this attack and his lackey big time if war were to break out this time around between Russia and Georgia Shocked

    There is overwhelming proof now that either the CIA, Mossad or one of the NATO intelligence outfits carried out this Moscow attack, but why is Putin not saying on TV that whose responsible?

    Israel Strikes Back

    By Jeff Gates
    1-26-11


    Timing is everything when waging war "by way of deception," the motto that has long guided Israeli war-planners. Whenever Israel's geopolitical goals are threatened, chaos is assured. In national security terminology, the January 24th bombing at Moscow's busiest airport was "out of theater repositioning."

    First among Tel Aviv's priorities is their need to maintain traction for the latest geopolitical narrative: a "global war on terrorism" against "Islamo-fascism." The fact that America's two latest wars serve Israeli goals remains largely unmentioned in Western media.

    Six days prior to the Moscow bombing, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev traveled to the West Bank to endorse a Palestinian state with its capital East Jerusalem. He pointedly noted "this was the first visit of a Russian president to Palestine not united with a visit to another country" (Israel).

    Then he joined a fast-lengthening list of nations confirming that, to date, 109 of 192 United Nations member countries support a resolution recognizing Palestinian statehood.

    Though the U.S. reliably vetoes Security Council resolutions at Israel's request, sentiments are shifting as a global public awakens to the costs of the U.S.-Israeli relationship.

    Numerous Latin American nations recently extended recognition to Palestine. Ireland just announced an upgrade in its relationship to embassy status.

    Out-of-Theatre Repositioning

    When waging war from the shadows, Zionist war-planners concentrate their efforts on key variables. Thus the fear in Tel Aviv that emerging events are loosening control of the Israel lobby over U.S. foreign policy.

    To sustain a global "war on terrorism," instability must be sustained. Anyone familiar with the Israeli use of strategic duplicity found it unsurprising when multiple crises emerged "unexpectedly" in North Africa.

    Unrest in Tunisia triggered a change in government followed by unrest in Mauritania, Algeria, Yemen and Egypt. During a recent Arab League meeting, Secretary-General Amr Mousa cautioned that the contagion could spread.

    If so, look for the price of energy to soar, further weakening leaders in the debt-ridden West where restive populations already face fewer services, higher taxes-and more debt.

    Misdirection also plays a role in such well-timed crises. Tel Aviv just released a report justifying Israel's deadly boarding of a Turkish vessel last May in international waters carrying aid to Gaza. Yet a post-mortem found 30 Israeli bullets in the bodies of nine dead activists, including one shot four times in the head.

    Akin to the 911 Commission Report that obscured the anti-Zionist motivation for that mass murder, news of this Israeli attack was obscured by reports of a bombing in Moscow and a leak that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas secretly agreed to cede Palestinian land to Israel.

    That well-timed leak weakened the Palestinian president while the bombing weakened the Russian president when this well-timed crisis forced his cancellation of a keynote address to world leaders at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

    Multiple Motives

    When deploying deceit to wage war, Zionists catalyze mental impressions meant to link events in the public's mind. Thus the critical role of timing when advancing a thematic narrative such as The Clash of Civilizations.

    These latest events heightened tensions worldwide as both fear and the requisite loathing were reinforced by yet another series of well-timed crises. When faced with the threat that its Islamo-fascist storyline is losing traction, what else can Zionists do?

    Confronted with the possibility that the West may withdraw support for its six-decade occupation of Palestine, what is Tel Aviv to do? Facing the prospect of global censure for its murder of Turkish activists, how can Israel divert attention?

    Tel Aviv is backed into a corner. Overwhelming evidence confirms that Zionists generated the false intelligence that induced the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

    Though the Israel lobby retains its control over U.S. lawmakers, the American public is fast realizing how many crises originate with those who consider themselves above the law.

    To Betray, First Befriend

    What are Americans to do when faced with a devious enemy-posing as an ally-whose operatives consider themselves Chosen by a god of their own choosing? With mainstream media dominated by those complicit in this duplicity, how can this chokehold be released?

    As a duped electorate slowly awakens to how they were deceived-and by whom-how do Americans make amends for the damage done by their Israeli-compliant lawmakers?

    Those determined to defeat this 'enemy within' must first make this treason transparent. As the common source of this corruption becomes apparent, accountability can commence.

    Americans do not yet grasp that we have long been the target of ongoing capital crimes. Zionists know that our continued ignorance is the key to their continued impunity. With knowledge comes the power to prosecute those complicit. Therein lies the challenge.

    Aware of the future that awaits them, Zionists are becoming desperate and even more dangerous. An escalation of violence is assured until the full force of international law is turned on those who have long flaunted the law in pursuit of their extremist agenda.

    I would think both Medvedev and Putin would want to wait till evidence has been collected and charges have been proven correct before going around bombing countries like the US does.

    Lashing out at anyone just because they are in your little black book of countries or regimes you don't like is counter productive most of the time.

    Those that are guilty will get what is coming to them, it makes sense to be sure you know all the players before you start sending in the kill teams.

    If the CIA is involved their standard procedure is to cut all links and let a stooge take the fall for their operation.

    In actual fact if it was a CIA action I rather think they FSB would have learned about it well before hand and been able to stop it happening.

    Remember it was the CIA that gave cash to the Pakistani ISI and said spend it on any horse you want... and they picked the Taleban as the BEST HORSE!!!!

    And Putin has never said Iran has a nuclear WEAPONS program as far as I am aware. What he has said is that Iran should cooperate with the IAEA and the UN. It is a UNSC resolution that stopped the sales of S-300s to Iran, not Putins personal choice. Unlike the US the Russians actually feel bound by international law, which in this case prevented them completing the contract on S-300 missiles.

    If Iran had anything to do with this explosion then this would be proof they should not be a customer of Russian military hardware, but I rather doubt they did.

    Moscow seeks Pakistan’s help in suicide attack probe

    Amir Mir
    Thursday, January 27, 2011


    LAHORE: The Russian authorities, investigating the January 24 suicide bombing targeting the Domodedovo International Airport in Moscow that killed 35 people, have sought intelligence sharing from their Pakistani counterparts to explore a suspected link of Pakistani and Afghan militant groups, operating along the Durand Line, to the terror groups in North Caucasus, which might have helped in carrying out the suicide bombings.

    According to well-informed diplomatic circles in Islamabad, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), the main domestic security agency of Russia, which also deals with counter-terrorism and surveillance, the suicide bombers who have repeatedly targeted Russia in the recent past, were most likely trained by the al-Qaeda network on the Pak-Afghan tribal belt, which is also home to Chechen, Uzbek as well as Tajik militants. The Russian authorities have informed their Pakistani counterparts that despite the US drone-attacks in the Pak-Afghan tribal belt, the training infrastructure remains operational.

    According to the intelligence information, the Russian authorities have shared with their Pakistani counterparts, the Chechen militants who are suspected of carrying out suicide bombings in Russia, are being trained by the same al-Qaeda-run jehadi network which is imparting terror training to hundreds of other foreigners for launching Mumbai-style attacks in the United States, United Kingdom, France and Germany.

    Three key anti-Russian commanders who are currently operating from the Pak-Afghan tribal belt and masterminding terrorist operations in Russia include Abu Haneefah, the commander of the Chechen, Turkish Kurds and Bosnians militants; Abu Akaash, who commands the Uzbek, Tajik and other Central Asians militants and Abu Nasar, who is the commander of the Uighur militants. Many of these militants are reportedly travelling to Pak-Afghan tribal belt via Turkey and Iran. The Federal Security Service of Russian Federation believes that the Moscow airport bombing was carried out by the Islamic Caucasian Emirate, which has attacked many cities in the past decade, challenging Russia’s sovereignty in Caucasian region. The Chechen militants are spread out in the mountains of North Caucuses and in Dagestan and are being directed by the al-Qaeda leadership from its stronghold in Pakistan.

    Led by Doku Umarov, the Islamic Caucasian Emirate, which had claimed responsibility for the March 2010 terrorist attack in Moscow, wants to exploit the separatist struggles throughout the North Caucasus, which is popularly known as the war in Chechnya, as the rallying point and springboard for a broader strategic jehad against Russia and the states of Central Asia. Though extensive battles in Chechnya ended years ago, following two devastating wars between Russia and Chechen separatists, the militants have continued to carry out suicide bombings and other terror attacks across Russia, targeting subways, buses and trains.

    Diplomatic circles in Islamabad say this is not for the first time that the Russian authorities have approached their Pakistani counterparts in connection with terrorism-related investigations. The Russians had earlier contacted Islamabad following the March 29, 2010, suicide bombing in Moscow which had killed 38 people.
    A day after the attack, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had stated on March 30, 2010, that militants operating on the Pakistani border may have helped organise suicide bombing.

    Lavrov did not mention al-Qaeda but said the bombers may have had links to militants on the Pak-Afghan border. When asked if there could have been any foreign involvement in the attack, Lavrov said, “I do not exclude that. We all know that in the Afghan-Pakistan border, in the so-called no-man’s land, the terrorist underground is very well entrenched. We know that many terrorist attacks, not only in Afghanistan, but in other countries too, are plotted in that area,” Lavrov was quoted as saying.

    Moscow seeks Pakistan?s help in suicide attack probe

    ---------- Post added at 06:42 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:42 AM ----------

    ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari “strongly condemned” the suicide attack on a Moscow airport that killed 35 people, expressing solidarity on behalf of a country also hit by terrorism.

    In a message to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Zardari said “nothing could justify such terrorist attacks against innocent persons,” in a statement sent from his office late Monday.

    “The people of Pakistan stood in firm solidarity with the Russian people and shared their pain and sorrow,” Zardari said.

    “Pakistan, itself, has been subjected to numerous terrorist attacks and we firmly believe that no effort be spared by the international community to eliminate this blight from the world.”

    Scenes of carnage unfolded at Domodedovo airport in southern Moscow on Monday as corpses were stretchered out of the arrivals area after the blast, which also wounded over 130 people.

    Extremism and Terrorism in Russia Empty Security strengthened in Russia's Volgograd following bomb blasts!

    Security strengthened in Russia's Volgograd following bomb blasts


    Police in the southern Russian city of Volgograd say they have strengthened security measures following two bomb blasts on Tuesday morning.

    One blast, equal to 500 grams of TNT, occurred near the city's traffic police headquarters. No deaths or injuries were reported.

    A suspicious package was later discovered outside the city's police training academy. It detonated when being defused by a robot. The explosion was equal to 2 kg of TNT.

    "The heightened anti-terrorism regime will run in the region for the next few days," a local police spokesman said. He said tightened security measures included transport control and the monitoring of public places.

    Terrorist attacks in Russia are usually attributed to insurgents in the mainly Muslim North Caucasus region, where Russia fought two wars in the republic of Chechnya in the 1990s. Russian security forces continue to fight militants in other regions of the North Caucasus, who stage frequent attacks on security forces, police and civilians.

    I think this measure should be extended for a longer period of time to ensure that any remaining terrorist elements will not have a chance to carry out more similar acts

    When Japan announced they were going to help Iran with it's nuclear reactor.....


    Do you think Israel would have sailed one of their subs off the Japanese coast and detonated a nuclear bomb in the ocean to cause a tsunami?


    Israel likely didn't like Japan's reach out to Iran.

    Israel's nuclear arsenal has never been inventoried. They likely run most of the US higher technology items for Defense and could have used them.

    Are we witnessing Judgement Day where the Israeli's are deciding who lives and who doesn't....and there isn't a single thing Russia can do to keep it's sovereignty?

    Are we now into an era where Israel/US will decide which humans will live in THEIR world?...and there's not a thing Russia can do?

    US political pressure killed any cooperation between Japan and Iran on civil nuclear matters faster than any Tsunami.

    If the Juice were that powerful you would think they would be in a much better position than they are currently.

    Extremism and Terrorism in Russia Empty Fifth Suspect Held Over Kazan Mufti Bombing

    Post  Russian Patriot on Fri Jul 20, 2012 3:48 pm

    A fifth suspect was detained over Thursday’s car bombing of the Mufti of Tatarstan in Kazan and the fatal shooting of his former deputy, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Friday.

    The Mufti, Ildus Faizov, suffered a leg injury in the car bomb blast. Earlier that day, Valiulla Yakupov, a high-ranking member of the spiritual directorate of the republic and head of its education department, was shot dead at his home.

    The first four suspects were detained on Thursday. Investigators named them as Rustem Gataullin, the 57-year-old director of the largest Hajj tourism operator; Murat Gallev, 39; Airat Shakirov, 41, and Azat Gainutdinov, 31.

    The fifth suspect was identified as Abdunozim Ataboyev, “a 36-year-old citizen of Uzbekistan,” Markin said.

    “Investigators think the main motive for the crime was the professional activity of the victims, including their ideological differences with their opponents,” Markin said.

    “After Faizov was elected chief Mufti of Tatarstan, he took up a firm line against radical Muslim organizations in Tatarstan. In addition, he took control of financing of the Idel Hajj tour operator, which was sending muslims to Mecca, and in this way he was caught up in conflict with the leaders of organizations which threatened Faizov.”

    According to its website, Idel Hajj is one of Russia’s leading tour operators, and is in the top 100 operators in the country according to the PLIMSOLL analytical agency. The company has offices throughout Russia.

    Traditional Tatar theologist and former Mufti of Tatarstan, Farid Salman, said the attacks showed that the confrontation between radicalism and traditional Islam has intensified in the republic.

    “The fight against clerics who oppose radicalism under the guise of Islam has begun,” he said.
