Somehow I don’t think the Russians will put up with this.
If the sort of attack that happened in Volgograd railway station earlier today had happened in the United Kingdom, would anyone really bet against someone like Cameron saying ‘but Islam is a religion of peace’. Somehow I don’t think that the government of Vladimir Putin will take the same appeasing and cowardly line that we saw Cameron take after the murder of a British soldier in Woolwich in May 2013. I would not expect the Russian government or the Russian people to take attacks like this lying down. I think soon the Bear is going to give the Bearded Savages a mighty swipe with its paw, and it will be a swipe the Savages will have brought on themselves.
The Jihad Watch site reported on the attack and said:
“Last summer, jihad leader Doku Umarov exhorted Muslims to use “maximum force” against the winter Olympics in Sochi, which he called “Satanic.” This attack could have been meant to follow out his orders.
