Russia Finally Admits Terrorists Probably Shot Rabbi

By: JTA

The shooting of a Chabad rabbi in the Russian republic of Dagestan was likely a terrorist attack by Muslim extremists, investigators said more than week after a local political leader, where the attempted murder occurred, stated terrorists carried out the attack.

Rabbi Artur Ovadia Isakov was shot on July 25 in Derbent, in southern Russia, “because of his religious duties, likely by Muslim extremists,” investigators said, according to a report by the Russian news site Gazeta.ru. Police still are searching for the attackers, while the Russia’s intelligence agency found 100 pounds of explosives in the hands of Muslim extremists in Dagestan, Gazeta.ru reported.

Rabbi Isakov was gunned down by unknown assailants outside his home as he was exiting his car. Ramazan Abdulatipov, the acting president of Dagestan, released a statement after the shooting blaming “extremists and terrorists [who] do not want a happy, normal life for us all.” He said, “Only ignorant people, enemies of Dagestan, are able to do this.”

Rabbi Isakov was flown to Israel in critical condition with injuries to his liver but has since regained consciousness and is no longer in life-threatening condition.

    Will Russia and the USA release their terrorist at the same time as Israel is forced to?

  2. Sunarty Galama says:

    We as a Muslim can't blame Al-qaeda and terrorism to do bombing, killing people, because they are just trying to follow the command of the Qur'an which says: “slay the infidels wherever they are, including the friends with infidels “. so to eliminate any al-qaedah and Terrorism, the Qur'an should be fixed content.
    The leader of the Arab leaders also cannot be blamed for People lying in the Qur'an allow to lie and betray other people who became Arab guidelines: “when you see something better then that, and forget the Covenant that we agree upon or which you have promised to other people even if you swear in the name of Allah, then Allah is good will forget that your vows”, so the Qur'an teaches us to be lying ,
    a number of countries reject islam came to their country because they fear Muslims will impose these verses of the Qur’an in their country.
    There are millions of Muslims leaving Islam because this verses, they regard the Qur'aan is not true, so is there should modifications and improvements to the Quran in order to be accepted by all?
