What about France?....It has one of the largest muslim populations in Europe, and I may be wrong, but I believe they account for about 40% of the population (if I am incorrect in this, please correct me). Of course, this is not to insinuate that all of France's Muslim population are terrorists. Just as all Chechans are not neccessarily terrorists. Just something interesting to ponder...
I'm not too sure if Islamic fundamentalists would take over Moscow and institute an Islamic takeover of Russia. The country is strongly Orthodox and strongly nationalistic, they would rather burn down all of Moscow and Russia than to give it up to Muslim fundamentalists. History have proven Russians' willingness to sacrifice.

Anyhow Islamic Fundamentalists had kidnapped I believe a Russian Official,
the spetsnaz response was to kidnap the Fundamentalist's second in charge, carstrated him and mailed the bits(for want of a better term)
back to the kidnappers, the Russian official was sent back unharmed.
On a personal note I don't think there will be a Muslim takeover of
Russia anytime soon.

I've heard that this comes from prophecy. Supposedly Israel is supposed to be attacked by Persia, Cush, Phut, Meshek, Magog and a few other peoples. The modern lineup of those nations would be Iran, Sudan/Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey, and Russia. Armenia Germany and Palestine are also on the list I belive.
This is not in revelations though. Does anybody know where that came from, or if that is actually in the bible at all?

The terrorist attacks in Russia, the Theatre in Moscow, the School...What if the Gov. was overthrown by these people???
and just how many nukes do they have?
In all of recorded history and inferable prehistory the Chechens (and for that matter the Ingush) have never undertaken battle except in defense. The Russian conquest of the Caucasus was difficult and bloody, and the Chechens and Ingush with their extensive lowlands territory and access to the central pass were prime targets and were among the most tenacious defenders. Russia destroyed lowlands villages and deported, exiled, or slaughtered civilian population, forcing capitulation of the highlands. Numerous refugees migrated or were deported to various Muslim countries of the middle east, and to this day there are Chechen populations in Jordan and Turkey. Since then there have been various Chechen rebellions against Russian and Soviet power, as well as resistance to collectivization, anti-religious campaigns, and Russification.
