I showed this article to Konstantin Preobrazhensky, and he offers some insight:
But it is the only possible way to deal with Muslims! They understand only force, nothing more! The way of tolerance is the way of defeat. Maybe you remember how Muslim audience was grinning when Obama told them that America is not an enemy of Islam? In their eyes I have read the following: "Yes, we know that America is not an enemy of Islam! We are the enemy of America, that is the thing!"
This article is biased, a little bit pro-Islamic. In fact, Russia is not only fighting Islam, but is exploiting it, domesticating it. In Russia, there is a lot of Moslem clergy supporting Putin and his policy! Many of them are KGB agents. By the way, the Russian officers, who are fighting Islamic extremists in Caucasus, are Moslems too! And America has never succeeded in making one group of Moslems to fight another group of Moslems.
America does not know and does not understand Islam. For Americans, Muslims are just a part of other numerous immigrants, nothing more. They hope that it is possible to make friends with Islam by the way of tolerance. But Muslims understand tolerance as a weakness and increase their attacks.
Let me give you a recent example. In Afghanistan, in spite of the presence of American troops, the last Christian temple was closed. And American diplomats are praying secretly now. What does it mean? It means that soon we all shall be praying secretly here, in America.
And on the contrary, Russia as a state has emerged in fighting Islam, her neighbor countries, Turkey and Persia. It has conquered a lot of land from them. When Russia was conquering the most problematic North Caucasus, it was granting the local princes the privileges of Russian gentry, and they became true patriots of Russia, fighting for Russia in the wars! The only one Russian general, who acted against dethroning Nicholas the Second in 1917, was a Moslem! His name was Prince of Nakhichevan.
Putin is very strict with Muslims. That is why Russian Muslims respect him! They respect a stiff hand.
Russia has more than a half-millennium's experience of dealing Islam and submitting it. The article says that Russians are fighting Islam. But if so, why does the World Islam support Russia and hate America? In 2005, the World Islamic Conference made Russia its associated member. It was on the peak of the cruel war in Chechnya. The World Islam showed that Russia for them is more important than Chechnya.
That is why Americans want Russians so much to help them in fighting Islamic terrorism! And Russians do not do it, which is natural. Well, they did it once, but in vain! Russian assistance was not appreciated by America! Russian FSB, as you know, has sent some materials to FBI about Tsarnaevs, the Boston terrorists, and FBI has ignored them! Americans are wondering, why. But for me the answer is clear. Because investigating Islamic terrorism may spoil one's career nowadays. Because Obama is a Moslem. It is better not to touch such a hot topic!
I have studied this problem a lot. Attached is my report about all this. I think it could answer some of your questions:
I remember this report from a year ago. It is making more sense to me now. It explains about the centuries/decades-old relationship between Russian and the Muslims. It is very revealing and worth reviewing.
Then I asked Sbn. Konstantin: How does the Islamic take-over in America fit in with our Church's end times teachings? or is that not apparent yet?
I think Islam is that very Antichrist of which we have been speaking so much. God has allowed Islam as a punishment for our sins and especially for deviation from Christianity. Moslems do not conceal that they are against Christianity and are killing Christians. Running genocide of them. What other proofs do we need?
Our deviation from Christ is intentional, which makes this sin far more serious. As we all know, the European Union has officially denied to acknowledge Christian roots of European civilization. What does it mean? It means that Europe will not exist anymore. It will be dissolved like the Soviet Union. Europe is doomed to annihilation. And we can see this process with our own eyes.
That is why the Kingdom of Antichrist already exists. It is Islamization.
I believe this. I know the prophecies that "As In Russian Yesterday, So In America Tomorrow". And "Tomorrow" is now here. And I know that the antichrist [spirit] will arise from the middle east.
