Update from Pamela:
Fresh on the bloody heels of the “brides of allah” homicide bombings which killed 39 people and injured 70. Â These are the same soulless Islamic savages whoÂ ripped through the children’s school in Beslan — murder, rape, torture.
Joseph Stalin deported the entire Chechen (Muslim) people from their homeland in 1944 as punishment for their collaborating with the Nazi invaders during theÂ Second World War. The whole Muslim world aligned with Hitler, and they continue with their evil imperialist goals.

Terror attack in Dagestan leaves at least 12 dead and 28 injured, two days after 39 died in Moscow metro blasts
A team of suicide bombers struck again inÂ Russia early this morning following Monday’s devastatingÂ attacks on the Moscow metro, killing at least 12 people and injuring 28 others in the unstable southern Caucasus republic of Dagestan.
The bombers targeted the town of Kizlyar on the border with Chechnya.
The first explosion occurred at 8.45am Moscow time when a bomber drove his Niva car towards the headquarters of the local interior ministry.
The driver ignored road police officers who tried to stop the vehicle.
As the officers approached the Niva the car exploded â€“ killing two officers, injuring a third and killing a woman who was walking past, Russia’s interior minister Rashid Nurgaliyev said.
The second blast occurred at 9.07am when a suicide bomber disguised as a police officer walked up to law enforcement offices and civilians who had rushed to the scene. The male bomber â€“ dressed in a senior police lieutenant uniform â€“ blew himself up.
This explosion killed at least five police officers, including the district police chief Vitaly Vedernikov and a senior investigator from the prosecutor’s office, Dagestan’s interior ministry said.
Television pictures from the scene this morning showed a picture of devastation: a huge crater lay in the middle of the road surrounded by gutted vehicles, bricks and glass. A body lay in the street. The explosion had blown out the windows of a five-storey school across the road, flanked by an avenue of trees.
“It was terrible. There are body parts of the victims lying in the street. The blast lifted the roof off the school, blew out all the glass from windows and left the school buildings with cracks,” witness Tatiana Batzina told the news agency RIA Novosti.
She added: “Colleagues who live on the street told me a car blew up near the school. Two other vehicles were driving past. The people inside were badly injured. A huge crowd of people gathered at the scene. As several ambulances arrived there was another explosion.”
Like Monday’s deadly metro blasts in Moscow, which killed 39 people and injured more than 70, today’s attacks were a symbolic strike against the Russian state. The explosions took place 300 metres away from the interior ministry building and the offices of the Federal Security Service (FSB), Russia’s main domestic intelligence agency.
The latest suicide bombings appear to confirm fears that Russia is now in the grip of a major campaign by Islamist insurgents.
Dagestan â€“ together with the neighbouring Muslim republics of Chechnya and Ingushetia â€“ has seen numerous attacks, with daily clashes between rebels and government security forces.
Days ago police officers came under attack in the Dagestani town of Sergokala. The insurgents burst out of the woods and opened fire, leaving one officer with severe head injuries. The situation is also unstable in Chechnya with one police officer killed in Nozhai-Yurt district during a shoot-out with militants.
Russian investigators had warned of further possible attacks, saying a squad of up to 20 trained suicide bombers was still at large.
The federal security service (FSB) said the two women who blew themselves up during the Moscow morning rush hour may have been members of a group of 30 suicide bombers recruited and trained by Chechen rebel leader, Said Buryatsky.
Buryatsky was an influential Islamic convert and ideologue who posted jihadist video messages on YouTube. Special forces killed him earlier this month. Investigators are examining whether the bombings at Lubyanka and Park Kultury metro stations were in retaliation for his death.
The Kremlin signalled it is planning a tough response. Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, said the culprits should be “scraped from the bottom of the sewers” â€“ a phrase reminiscent of his 1999 promise that he would “rub out” Chechen rebels “even in the outhouse”.
The Kommersant newspaper, quoting investigators, said Buryatsky may have recruited a group of potential suicide bombers and dispatched them to a mosque in Turkey. After receiving training the group returned to Russia. Nine out of 30 recruits had already blown themselves up. But the other 21 had not been found, the paper said. Law enforcement officers are urgently tracing female relatives of rebel leaders killed in clashes with pro-government security forces in an attempt to identify the bombers. Six locals sheltering Buryatsky died along with him during the 2-3 March operation in theÂ Ingush village of Ekashevo.
