Revival of Cossacks Casts Muslim Group Out of Russia to U.S.
Washington Post ^ | Friday, November 18, 2005 | Peter Finn

Posted on 11/17/2005 8:07:42 PM PST by jb6

KRASNODAR, Russia -- Thousands of Muslims from a small ethnic group known as the Meskhetian Turks are fleeing this Black Sea region for the United States. The exodus is caused by what human rights groups call a campaign of persecution sanctioned by local authorities and spearheaded by the Cossacks, a Russian militia that fought for the czars and is being revived.

In the past year, just more than 5,000 Meskhetian Turks have resettled in the United States as refugees, and 4,400 have approval to immigrate, according to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Another 7,000 have filed applications that U.S. officials are reviewing.

Rustam Zautadze, 35, and his family, Meskhetian Turks who live in southern Russia, are moving to Baltimore as refugees. Zautadze, packs with his wife, Gulmira, 29, son Ibragim, 13, daughter, Fedena, 5, and son Dzumali, 10. jpg

Well to put it diplomatically, these are not real Cossacks because real Cossacks would find a way to eliminate the problem at its source.

Why do we have an obligation to resettle them? Why not resettle them in the Sunni triangle and if, like the Kurds, they prove to be pro-American, let them into Kurdistan, Turkey or some other Muslim country?

Until they prove to be Americans first, we need no more Muslims in this country!

A few thousand here; a few thousand there: Pretty soon you have a real fighting division at your back and throat.

Would someone please give those "Cossacks" a crash training course in more efect problem solving?

I wonder exactly WHO in our Government authorizes another 15,000 Muslims to come to America?

Wouldn't they be more comfortable in an Islamic nation?

Is this REALLY the time to admit MORE folks that will resist assimilation?

We've gone nuts!

Zautadze, packs with his wife, Gulmira, 29, son Ibragim, 13

So she was 16 when she gave birth, 15 when she got married. Perhaps they'll be circumcizing their female children. Diversity is wonderful.

Hmm. Why do I see an alterior motive in this? You know, just an end around to get more muslims into the U.S. It stinks. They aren't the only ones being persecuted in this world and I don't see special doors being opened for others. This speaks of appeasement.

Just a freakin' minute: We're supposed to provide a sanctuary for a bunch of muslim refugees too poisonous fro even the Russians to deal with???

Just to remind everyone, the school hostage mass-murder/rape of those children last year happened in the Cossacks region.

Allowing these fanatics into our country is inviting the same thing to happen here.

Plenty of rooms from the areas where they exterminated to Greeks and Armenians.

Things we can look forward to in the future-

- Violent, murderous rampages due to allegations of desecration of the koran or blasphemy.

- Ethnic cleansing of non-muslims from muslim dominated areas.

- Shariah law for muslim dominated areas, and separate law elsewhere.

IIRC, this is the work of those patriotic Americans at Foggy Bottom. A year or so ago, they agreed to take in 7000
practitioners of TROP from the remains of the former USSR.

You don't even have to leave the U.S.

Judging by the names on the member list, you don't even have to speak Russian.

Seemingly the Mongol horde included those following Shamanistic religions, Buddhists and Nestorian Christians. Pity missionaries didn't convert them all, then the sack of Baghdad and the conquering of Iran and Anatolia could have been followed by conversion.

No it did not. Beslan is in North Ossetia. The population is Christian, but not Russian. One small city, Mozdok, is almost exclusively of Russian and Ukrainian ethnic origin, and some of its inhabitants are the descendants of Cossacks. However, Mozdok is pretty much cut off from the rest of north Ossetia.

Well, what can you say? Our leaders treat us like an occupied colony. I'll bet we'll also see tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands from Iraq before this thing is over.
