    When protests broke out in Syria in late 2011, Russia hoped for a short, nasty war as a matter of Russian national interest -- just enough to put the Muslim Brotherhood and assorted Sunnis in their place. Violence from its own Sunni Muslim population has plagued Russia for decades. Saudi Arabia took over the defeated nationalist Chechen rebellion in the late 1990s, infusing it with money and Islamist overtones, prompting the second Chechen war. More recently, there has been open fighting and rioting in Moscow between Muslims and Slavs. Iran counted on a short war as well -- something to...

    SNIPPET: "Two U.S. planes have flown radical Muslim preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other suspected terrorists to the United States, hours after Britain's High Court cleared the way for their extradition.

In rejecting the appeals, the British court cited an “overwhelming public interest” in seeing the extraditions carried out. Hamza is wanted on U.S. charges that include...

    By Theodore ShoebatA manhunt for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev still continues on; his brother Tamerlan, was killed in a shootout. Both are from Chechnya, a fact which will be sparking more interest in two very significant regions of the Muslim world which has not received the attention they deserve: the Balkans and the Caucasus. While much of these are still Christian, substantial parts are Muslim, such as Albania, Chechnya, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dagestan, and Azerbaijan. While the persons in question are Chechen, it must be comprehended that this is not the first time we have experienced jihad from people of...

    MOSCOW (AP) - A shocked, wary Russia counted its rising toll of dead and steeled itself for new terrorist blows Saturday in its never-ending Chechen war, after commandos striking behind clouds of disabling gas brought a sudden bloody end to a hostage nightmare. The special forces assault on a Moscow theater after a three-day siege left Russians with feelings of both pain and pride: More than 90 hostages were dead, but 750 others were rescued and dozens of their Chechen captors killed. Russia "cannot be forced to its knees," President Vladimir Putin (news - web sites) declared afterward on national...
