“All Muslims are terrorists just waiting to happen”, is the oft-repeated claim of the neocons as they try to herd us to war. But is it true? The Russians certainly don’t think so, as they have a largely Muslim battalion of Chechen soldiers defending their airbases in Syria.
This remarkable documentary is a great antidote to the simplistic neocon lies that swamp the Internet. This Chechen commander is a Sunni Muslim, his deputy is Shia. The men under his command are all willing to lay down their lives to help crush Islamist terrorism in Syria, and they include Muslims, Orthodox Christians and even a Buddhist.
This is the reality. This is the truth. The Muslim communities of the West, heavily radicalised by money and hate-filled Wahhabi ideas from Saudi Arabia, are indeed a giant rats’ nest of potential terrorists. The Islamists must be crushed and driven out.
But the solution to that problem will not only include Christian military force. The final victory over Islamist terror must also involve traditionalist Muslim ideas which reject and drive out the Wahhabi heresy. What the Russians have done in Chechnya since crushing the Islamist insurrection will have to be done in the West as well.
