Islamists Threaten Russian Olympics as Terrorist Attacks Continue

Russian President Vladimir Putin is not known for being gentle with those who oppose him. Putin's current opponent, Islamist mass terrorist Doku Umarov, is similarly steadfast.

On Monday, Dec. 30, there was a second suicide bombing in Russia. Monday’s bombing took place on a bus and left 14 people dead. The city of Volgograd was already reeling from a suicide bombing in the city’s main railway station less than 24 hours earlier. In that attack, 17 people were killed and dozens more injured.

Volgograd is a city in Russia on the western bank of the Volga River.

There were no immediate public claims of credit for the bombings, but it is no secret in Russia that the major Islamist movement in the region has vowed to disrupt the Olympic Games in the Russian southern city of Sochi which are scheduled to take place this coming February.

This past June, Doku Umarov, the leader of the Russian Muslim terrorist group, released a video in which he called on his followers to use “maximum force” to ensure the Olympics not take place.

Umarov claims that the land on which the Olympics are to be held contains the bones of many dead Muslims.

“Today we must show those who live in the Kremlin … that our kindness is not weakness,” Umarov said, speaking in a forest and dressed in green camouflage. “They plan to hold the Olympics on the bones of our ancestors, on the bones of many, many dead Muslims buried on our land by the Black Sea. We as mujahideen are required not to allow that, using any methods that Allah allows us” Umarov stated in the video.

Umarov, believed to be hiding in the mountainous area between Chechnya and Dagestan, has claimed responsibility for several major terrorist attacks in transportation sites in Russia, including an airport and a Moscow metro station.  Those attacks killed nearly 100 people.

He had made a public promise not to unleash any more terrorist attacks on Russian soil, but has since revoked that announcement because of the insult of Russia’s hosting the 2014 Olympics on what he and his followers are claiming as Muslim burial grounds.

Umarov is suspected of playing a leading role in the 2004 brutal attack on a school in Beslan, during which 300 people were killed, many of whom were elementary school students.

Sometime during the mid-to late 2000′s, the claim of the Chechen rebels metamorphosed from a separatist focus to a fundamentalist Islamic focus. Umarov proclaimed that Western countries are the enemies of all Muslims. He also announced he intended to install Sharia law across the region.

Given the brutal clampdown of forces counter to Russian supremacy, it will be fascinating to watch how Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, responds to the current Islamist threat.  In this case the threat does not merely constitute an insult to Russia, it threatens to become a major embarrassment of Putin and his country on the world stage of the Olympics.

We may be watching the ultimate Olympic match. One in which an immovable object – Putin and his country – is met by an unstoppable force – fervent Islamist terrorism. It will not be a spectacle for the meek.

  1. islam likes to play with russia huh?

  2. Very sad, will keep prayers with all.

  3. it is a grave mistake to say that Islamist terrorism is an unstoppable force. Islamists are still human, and they can be defeated just like all other fascists can be defeated. It just takes power and conviction. The West has plenty of power. The West takes a long time to get its convictions invoked, as the world learned in World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. But when it finally realizes its existence as the West is meaningfully threatened, the West responds. Israel, a Western country in the Middle East, is proof of both sides of this assertion. Sooner or later the rest of the West, and those parts of Israel not already awake, will wake up to the Islamist threat. When that happens, Islamism will not look to anyone like an unstoppable force.

  4. The fact these Islamic terrorist blow up "anyone, anywhere" shows it is not Israel that is at war with the world! Evil is as evil does… and we are witnessing it once again – now in Russia.

  5. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Putin – as opposed to Obama – has the strong desire to get rid of these Islamist terrorists.

  6. Joseph Colen says:

    We should send muslims back to their muslim nations.

  7. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Unfortunately, the Russians and everybody else now tastes the bitter dish prepared first and foremost for Israelis to consume. The Islamofascists has gone worldwide as a global threat. Sunni, Shia and whatever the bastards are calling themselves have to be contained. – The Islamists are as deadly as the Nazis with the same beastly outlook at mankind.
    The Muslims in the provinces of South Russia have turned a somewhat just claim for autonomous governance into a failed case. The extremist Arab terrorists have taken over, and now, as Putin says, the Russians will track down every terrorist on Russian soil.

  8. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Right on spot! It's not about a social thing or anything else for that matter. It's sheer EVIL.

  9. Vladimir ain't Putin up with that crap. I've got nothing to add. Islamofascism is a greater threat than Nazi Germany ever was though.

  10. go putin show them rag heads !!!!!

  11. Grozny comes to mind…Russians do know how to deal with islam and deal with in the only words and deeds 'it' understands.

  12. maybe before building the olympic stadiums, pour pigs blood on the grounds.

  13. John Cross says:

    All of this no matter what part of the world is one thing Muslims against Israel,the Jews what ever you want to call them. I choose to call them Gods chosen people my Bible says so. So if for one time in history if the world would stand with Israel the Muslims could be stopped and then the world could catch it’s breath and have a real chance for world peace if they would only see what can be accomplished as a world instead of a nation.
