Jihad group claims "credit" for Moscow bombings

Big surprise. Note that he says that these attacks were “revenge.” Jihad attacks are always framed as revenge, because from the standpoint of Islamic law only defensive jihad is justified at this point — also, to frame mass murder in this way helps take the sting out for sympathizers to the cause who may be stopped short by the barbarity of attacks like these. “Islamist group claims Moscow bombings,” from World News Australia, April 1;via JW

Usman is behind the brides of allah homicide bombings which killed 39 people and injured 70.

A Chechen militant leader has claimed responsibility for twin suicide bombings on Moscow’s Metro that killed 39 and wounded scores of others.

In a video statement recorded on Monday, Dokka Abu Usman, the leader of the Islamist “Emirate of the Caucasus”, said the motive for the deadly blasts was revenge. More from JW

U.S. supporting Islamic jihad against Russia

This weeks jihad harvest

Stubbornly ignorant and unwilling to investigate the jihad doctrine, State Department officials led the U.S. into war to support jihadists in Bosnia and Kosovo. Now the same mistake is being repeated. “U.S. Supports Islamic Terror Against Russia,” by Julia Gorin at Republican Riot, March 29 (thanks to Pamela):

We don’t yet know the whole story behind the two female suicide bombers who killed 38 people in Moscow and injured scores of others. Although their affiliation is unclear, the working assumption is that the bombers were tied to the Chechen rebel movement in the North Caucasus.There is, however, something which we do know for sure, and which we paid no attention to despite its clear connection to the kind of terror Moscow witnessed yesterday morning.

There was a little-noted meeting that took place in December 2009, in Tbilisi, the capital of U.S. ally Georgia. That month Georgia hosted a conference of jihadists to plan “operations” against Russia. There was no news coverage of the event, and so it took a paid advertisement in the Washington Times to make it known. Stubbornly, still no news organization or blog picked up on it. And so here we are.

Yes indeed. But all news organizations beat this one up like a dead horse:

Below are the relevant parts of the paid-for article from last month, titled “The Georgian Imbroglio — And a Choice for the United States.” (Original emphasis preserved.) It was penned by James George Jatras, a former U.S. Foreign Service officer as well as foreign policy analyst for the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee.

Americans must be made aware of Saakashvili’s extending refuge to jihadists responsible for countless acts of terror in southern Russia and his regime’s extraordinary coordination efforts to permit them to step up attacks in the Caucasus region.Specifically, according to reliable sources [with lines to two foreign intel services], in December 2009 a secret meeting took place in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, with representatives of numerous jihad groups based in various Islamic and European countries for the purpose of coordinating their activities on Russia’s southern flank. The meeting was organized under the auspices of high officials of the Georgian government; while Saakashvili himself was not present, officials of his ministry of internal affairs (allegedly G. Lordkipanidze) and others acted as hosts and coordinators. Georgian Ambassador to Kuwait Mayering-Mikadze purportedly facilitated travel for participants from the Middle East. In addition to “military” operations (i.e., attacks in southern Russia) special attention was given to ideological warfare, for example, the launching of the Russian-language TV station “First Caucasian.”

Are we to believe that U.S. intelligence agencies were unaware of this meeting and other similar actions? The question then is unavoidable: has Washington decided to turn a blind eye — or even worse, to encourage our “ally” Saakashvili to play the “jihad card” against Russia? Could such a thing be possible at a time when the world’s media are filled with reports of jihad attacks in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, India, Israel, Philippines, and other countries — not least the United States (Fort Hood, Fort Dix)? The threat comes from the same ideology that motivated the 9/11 attacks against our country and which seeks to create through violence a worldwide Islamic caliphate governed by Sharia law….

There is much more. Be sure to read it all.

One thought on “Jihad group claims "credit" for Moscow bombings”

  1. I hope for the sake of Georgia that this report is unfounded. As far as Russia is concerned, Georgia is unfinished business.

    It would be the height of foolishness to provoke Russia when one is in Georgia. There is no way that America is going to assist, and that lesson should have been learnt last year – if a lesson was necessary.
