Yet, here I am. What was it that pushed me here today? An article too relevant, too timely, for me to take a pass on.
First, a brief rehash.
I had given readers a ‘heads up’ on the upcoming Sochi Olympics and the potential for terror attacks in Russia about two weeks back, July 17/13 in this post. Which was followed up with further clarification here
Yesterday, I posted two related posts. Hope you took the time to read them both? If you didn’t....... , why not? OK, I will let you off easy. At least read this one for some context. Iraq, Libya, Pakistan Prison Breaks that advance the NATO war agenda
Briefly from the link directly above:
“By all accounts the three most recent jailbreaks have let loose thousands of additional NATO Islamist fighters, going by varying brand names, but all basically fighting covertly under the guidance and directive of NATO.
Might some of the recently freed fighters make their way to Chechnya?
Might some of the Chechen fighters who are presently fighting in Syria now be free to make their way back to Chechnya to strike at Russia just in time for the Sochi Olympic spectacle?
After all Sochi is just months away”
The premise put forth goes like this..... the prison breaks were undertaken not only to free up fighters for Syria and expansion into Iraq and Iran. But also to allow the Caucasus fighters to go back to Russia and begin their next assignment on behalf of their NATO leadership.
Well lookie here! Syrian Fighters Tell North Caucasus Muslims 'Wage Jihad at Home!'
Cause we have all these freed prisoners heading this way!!!!!
If you read yesterday's post you will recall the 'internet in a suitcase' capabilities all the NATO fighters have.
July 31, 2013
In a short video address dated July 30, a group of Syrian fighters has appealed to Muslims in the North Caucasus to wage jihad in Russia rather than travel to Syria to participate in the fighting there. Specifically, they refer to the recent appeal by self-styled Caucasus Emirate leader Doku Umarov to prevent the holding of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi in February 2014.
Speaking in accented Russian, Salakhuddin begins by conveying Ramadan greetings to Muslims across Russia, and specifically to Umarov, whom he refers to as “our emir." (He is wearing a black T-shirt bearing the slogan "Caucasus Emirate.")
Salakhuddin says there has been a “huge influx of volunteers” from the North Caucasus to join the armed opposition in Syria. He attributes that wave of volunteers to a widely held belief that "Syria is where you go to join the jihad."
If the stats are correct the few hundred fighters who are now present in Syria can go back to Chechnya or Daghestan. There are thousands of replacements available. These fighters will not be missed
Salakhuddin says it is understandable that Muslims from those areas of Russia where there is no jihad should share that belief, but that Muslims in the North Caucasus have an obligation to remain at home and fight there, even though conditions are far more difficult in terms of weaponry, support, and the possibility of withdrawing from the front to the rear. He cites a sura from the Koran in support of that argument.
Salakhuddin further advises North Caucasus Muslims to "fight in the lowlands if you can’t go to the mountains,"or alternatively to travel to Moscow or other Russian cities to target the enemy there, or prepare to sabotage the Winter Olympics in line with Umarov’s instructions.
He points out that jihad does not necessarily involve joining a large fighting force, and that individuals or groups of up to three fighters can inflict considerable damage if they set their minds to it. In that context, he quotes Chechen field commander Shamil Basayev's observation that "modern technology enables one man to inflict irreparable damage on the infrastructure of the enemy state."
How many fighters from the North Caucasus are fighting in Syria and who recruits them remains unclear. The Russian daily "Kommersant" claimed last week that there are 100 Chechen fighters in Syria.
The paper quoted Russian Interior Ministry officials as having identified Isa Umarov (no relation to Doku), whose cousin Movladi Udugov is one of the main ideologues of the Caucasus Emirate, as a recruiting officer.
Also last week, the republic of Daghestan's authorities released a statement denouncing the participation of an estimated 200 Daghestani volunteers in the fighting in Syria.
Police in Novo Sasitli, near Daghestan's administrative border with Chechnya, recently apprehended a 46-year-old Daghestani who had been wounded while fighting in Syria and returned home to recuperate.
Conclusion: NATO expands it’s war of terror
