Jihadis Are Seething at Russia Over Crimea—Will It Boil Over?
Vocativ ^ | 03/16/2014 | Adi Kochavi and Rachael Levy

Some are calling on Muslims to travel to Ukraine to take up arms for their Crimean brothers

With Russia and Ukraine in a tense standoff over the fate of Crimea, jihadis are bashing Russia in their forums and social media accounts. In some cases, they’re even calling on Muslims to travel to Eastern Ukraine to defend their religious brothers.

In addition to the heightened activity on social networks, some radical Muslims affiliated with groups like the Free Syrian Army, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood have been using member forums and Facebook pages this week to galvanize their supporters around the Crimean conflict. The posts focus on Tatars, the Muslim group that accounts for about 10 percent of the population in Crimea.

An Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Facebook page, which has almost half a million likes, referred to the Tatar community as their fellow Muslim compatriots. They provided videos showing the loyalty of the Tatars to their Sunni brothers in Syria.

More of those kinds of partnerships could potentially turn Crimea into a messy war zone. It happened in Syria in a dramatic way. What began as a war between two sides morphed into an extremely complex conflict, as foreign fighters entered the fray. By some estimates, there are fighters from some 80 different countries taking part in that battle, with combatants coming from all over Europe, the Middle East and even parts of Asia.

Well it’s Russia’s problem. We have 20 million illegals and no jobs to worry about.

Unfortunaely an America hater like Obama, might find a way to give the Muslim Tartars asylum in this country.
I am sure Putin could help him expedite that. - tom

Have to figure some of these were written by Valerie Jarrett and her friends.

Haven’t heard much from Turkey, saw some ‘everybody be nice’ type of statement from them a while ago.

"The number of Crimean Tatars is estimated at 650,000. The Crimean Tatars emerged as a nation at the time of the Crimean Khanate. The Crimean Khanate was a Turkic-speaking Muslim state which was among the strongest powers in Eastern Europe until the beginning of the 18th century.[18] The rulers of the Crimean Tatars were the progeny of Hacı I Giray a Jochid descendant of Genghis Khan."

My opinion is Obama is not a Muslim but an American hater, and will use Muslims and Islam to degrade this country.- Tom

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. All of them should go fight Russia! Just watch how many prisoners Russia takes. (And then sticks in a cushy spot like Gitmo with 3 squares and a cot.)

In Syria, it’s muslim vs. muslim.

It would be muslim jihadists vs. Putin and Russia if the muslims take to violence over Crimea.

I wouldn’t mind Putin showing Obama how a country is supposed to deal with muslim terriorists.

Well Putin will NOT “stand with the Muslims” as Barack Hussein Obama has said he would do. At some point Putin may take the ultimate rational step and vaporize the Kaaba with a 50 megaton thermonuclear weapon. And with it the faith of the Islamists’ cult will be shown to be empty and will be abandoned by most.

...only if the Russians' Rules of Engagement are as stupid as ours; and somehow I don't think so.

Yes, Putin will ban the Crimean Tatars to Siberia again, like Russia did once before.

hmmmmm- one wonders why our Pres_dent has fought against even the referendum vote - calling it illegal - etc -

he stands with his brothers.

but will the media report that Putin didn't “invade” but went to protect - lined his troops up on the Ukraine border - to allow the people of Crimea to vote for their own future?

they are RUSSIANS. Russian is their language - they didn't want to be forced into the EU and ‘become’ Europeans.

“The Won” should've stayed out of it - in attempting to tear Putin down, he's only made him stronger. (Kinda like his war on guns/gun owners. the ONE business he's been good for - gun//ammo sales and new shooters have exploded.)

While O’bummer’s approval rating is below 40, Putin's, whose was 60 at the beginning of the Crimea action, has skyrocketed toward 70%....

Little barry bastard boy is not smart enough to play the games he is now wading through. He is doing as he is told by folks who don’t like Russia determining their economic future so they jump at the chance to oppose A Russian coming to the aid of Russians.

The Tartars are mostly in Crimea and they are a pain in the azz minority

The large problem I learn from speaking to my Ukrainian friends this morning is that Ukrainians think the USA is behind the destabilizing in their country. They do not like us very much right now

I would not put it past the ROP to steal a commercial jet and load a nuke on it and to detonate it upon Russian forces, and to also try to make it look like the whole plan originated from the CIA.

Make the Russians retaliate against the Great Satan.

It doesn’t help that we have idiots like Kerry and McLame making things worse.

Your frineds were right. The agitators Obama and the EU sent over were trying to use the Olympics and the fact Putin would be too distracted to react, as a chance to insert a NWO approved puppet leader. NWO ain’t picky, they associate with any vile vermin who will be their puppet.

Think Egypt and western support for the Brotherhood. Or associating with our enemy Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria.

I really wish that fool Kerry hadn’t issued his ridiculous ultimatum to Russia.
This is now the perfect setup to a terror attack on Moscow by the Jihadis who took Malaysian flight MH370.
Paint it to look American or worst US military and fly it into a high profile target in Russia.

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt scheming to influence political events in Ukraine, a country with a democratic government but torn by violent protests. For White House’s delusional view on Ukraine see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d80fgU... This has actual footage of Ukraine cut into the White House press conference.
