Reactions in the press:
Pretending to be clueless: “It is unclear who is responsible at this time” the New York Times
UK speculations: The Telegraph suggests that the culprits may be “Islamist rebels seeking to establish an Islamic caliphate on Russia’s southern tip…”
From a poster on youtube:
The terrorist can not be a Muslim and aï»¿ MUSLIM CAN NOT BE A TERRORIST.
We once again affirm: suicide can not be a Muslim and a Muslim can not be a terrorist. Extremism and terrorism have no support in the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet(SAW).
And let’s do not forget the Georgian… they have all reasonsï»¿ to seek revenge after their failing in Ossetia and recent paranoid behaviour (the fantasy of being attacked by the russians on live TV). Georgia is a very serious suspect.
It was done by the Mossad, the CIA, the FBI, da Joooozzzz, George Bush and those right wingers and fundamentalist Christianists to give Islam a bad name. Have you heard of Tim McVeigh? Anyway, Islam is a Religion of Peace, this is a fight against oppression and injustice, and this was a great victory for Islam, they are martyrs for Allah Â and they will go straight to the 72 virgins….
Now: does the above make sense to you? If it does, chances are you are Islamic!
Female Suicide Bombers? Virgins? WTF? Where are the Virgins?
Chechen terrorist groups have regularly recruited women to act as suicide bombers or “Black Widows”.
The prolonged war on insurgents over the past decade has added to the pool of recruits among women enraged at seeing security services kidnap, torture and kill male relatives, or destroy their family homes as punishment for alleged involvement with terrorist groups
