[SIZE=6]I found this very interesting.

[SIZE=6][/SIZE]November 25, 2014

to combat the "radicalization" of Muslims within its border.

Recent pro-Islamic reports are complaining that Russia is banning the Islamic hijab—the headdress Islamic law requires Muslim women to wear—and, perhaps even more decisively, key Islamic scriptures, on the charge that they incite terrorism.

In the words of Arabic news site Elaph, "Russia is witnessing a relentless war on the hijab. It began in a limited manner but has grown in strength, prompting great concern among Russia’s Muslims."

The report continues by saying that women wearing the hijab are being "harassed" especially in the "big cities"; that they are encountering difficulties getting jobs and being "subject to embarrassing situations in public areas and transportation. The situation has gotten to the point that even educational institutions, including universities, have issued decrees banning the wearing of the hijab altogether."

Moscow’s Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University appears mentioned as one of the schools to ban the donning of the hijab on its premises, specifically, last September (the New York Times bemoaned an earlier instance of anti-hijab sentiment in 2013).

While this move against the hijab may appear as discriminatory against religious freedom, the flipside to all this—which perhaps Russia, with its significant Muslim population is aware of—is that, wherever the Islamic hijab proliferates, so too does Islamic supremacism and terrorism. Tawfik Hamid, a former aspiring Islamic jihadi, says that "the proliferation of the hijab is strongly correlated with increased terrorism…. Terrorism became much more frequent in such societies as Indonesia, Egypt, Algeria, and the U.K. after the hijab became prevalent among Muslim women living in those communities."

The reason for this correlation is clear: strict Islamic Sharia commands jihad ("terrorism") against unbelievers just as it commands Muslim women to don the hijab. Where one proliferates—evincing adherence to Sharia—so too will the other naturally follow.

But Russia’s growing list of Islamic books to be banned on the charge that they incite terrorism is perhaps more significant. Elaph continues: "This move [ban on the hijab] coincides with a growing number of religious books to be prohibited, with dozens of them being placed on the terrorist list, including Sahih Bukhari and numerous booklets containing verses from the Koran and sayings of the prophet."

According to Apastovsk district RT prosecutors, Sahih Bukhari is being targeted because it promotes "exclusivity of one of the world’s religions," namely Islam, or, in the words of a senior assistant to the prosecutor of Tatarstan Ruslan Galliev, it promotes "a militant Islam" which "arouses ethnic, religious enmity."

This is significant. While one may expect modern day books and tracts written by the likes of al-Qaeda or the Islamic State to be banned, Sahih Bukhari, compiled in the 9[SIZE=2]th century, is fundamental to Sunni Islam (that is, 90 percent of the world’s Muslims). Indeed, the nine-volume book is often seen as second in importance only to the Koran itself and contains the most authentic sayings attributed to the Muslim prophet Muhammad.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
And yet, that this important scripture promotes "exclusivity"—that is, supremacism—and "arouses ethnic, religious enmity"—that is, "terrorism"—should not be missed on anyone. The following few statements contained in Sahih Bukhari and attributed to the prophet of Islam speak for themselves. Muhammad said:

•"I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings [
[SIZE=2]tawriya[/SIZE][SIZE=2], Islamic deception], and [/SIZE][SIZE=2]I have been made victorious with terror[/SIZE][SIZE=2] (cast in the hearts of the enemy)."[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

•"Whoever changed his Islamic religion ["apostates"], then
[SIZE=2]kill him[/SIZE][SIZE=2]."[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

•In the end times, a "stone will say, ‘O Muslim!
[SIZE=2]There is a Jew behind me; kill him![/SIZE][SIZE=2]’"[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

•"
[SIZE=2]I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people[/SIZE][SIZE=2] until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity" [i.e., until they become observant Muslims]."[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
Apparently the Russians are aware that such assertions—whether they come from this or that jihadi or from Prophet Muhammad—are enough to incite chaos on their soil. Indeed, the "terrorist" writings of modern day Islamic jihad groups are all infused with and based on the intolerant texts found in Islamic scriptures such as Sahih Bukhari.

This begs the following question: what of the Koran? Can it too be banned on the same grounds? After all, Islam’s number one holy book is also replete with calls to violence and terrorism against unbelievers. Koran 8:12 is one of numerous examples: Allah declares "I will cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, so strike [them] upon the necks," that is, behead them, as the Islamic State has been doing—
[SIZE=2]while citing the Koran[/SIZE][SIZE=2].[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

At any rate, back in La La Land, far from banning Islamic texts that incite violence and terrorism, Barack Hussein Obama has
[SIZE=2]banned U.S. intelligence communities from connecting anything Islamic to Islamic terrorism[/SIZE][SIZE=2]. In other words, Muslims are free to be incited by Islam’s scriptures—prompting things like beheadings and hatchet jihad attacks in America. The only ban rests on those who dare connect such acts to the core texts of Islam that so clearly inspire them.[/SIZE]

As we all know, years ago Malcovitch started a geneside toward muslims, It was played in the press as the muslims being the victim, which they were, but also at a time when few people knew the content of the religion, and the reprocussions felt by the world.

Now, I wonder if the world will turn a blind eye.

My understanding is that the Russian Orthodox Church wants power and influence in (secular) Russia.

My guess is they would dump that one also, as they did after ww2.

A few sides to that, China is also having problems with Islam, as are most countries, and it has to eventually come to a head, the world knows this, though the politically correct west will not admit it.

Iran's future is uncertain.

Realistically both the US and Russia could overthrow any of these countries within a week once the gloves come off.

When Russia went into Afganistan, it was during the Iranian crisis, the general attitude was, you take Iran, we'll take afgan.

However it did not play out that way, We backed off from Iran, and the world looked down on Russia, tying their hands.

Now the world is entering a new phase, During the Iranian crisis, nobody knew anything about Islam, now they do.

No, the world knew about Islam, however, the US didn't because they considered themselves the center of the universe. The sad state of affairs is that many Americans still feel that way. Most can't name the 50 states, and I bet only a small fraction can name the capitals of those states. But they know about Jeeeesuuus.
