Ironically, Russia (then the USSR) was the patron saint of these "indigenous peoples' liberation movements" (and especially of moslem ones) for much of the "twentieth century." And now Al Qaeda (may they boil in excrement), which has just launched a heinous mass murder attack on Russia, are actually in bed with Communist groups like International ANSWER, the International Socialist Organization, and the Workers World Party. I hope the Russian people keep this in mind if sinister forces promise vengeance against their enemies if they are returned to power.
The Soviets financed secular/nationalist/Socialist Arabs. The Iranians finance certain Shia groups but the Wahhabist jihadis came out of our war with Afghanistan.
What is actually ironic is that a zionist would not know that - know your enemey before you fight him would be a zionist creed I would imagine. Who would suspect such ignorance from a people on target from these groups. Maybe since as a Jew (I assume) and an Israeli (assumption again) since all three groups are fighting you they blend together. But you are deadly wrong when you assume that the Chechens grew out of Soviet patronage of communist peasant movements.
