Russian Army Becomes A Muslim Majority Army.


www.defence.pk

"Russia's Turning Muslim, Says Mufti" is the startling headline in the Times of London today. Ravil Gaynutdin, head of the Council of Muftis of Russia, announced that Russia's population of 144 million contains 23 million ethnic Muslims – and not, as the census indicates, 14.5 million, or, as the Orthodox Church estimates, nearer to 20 million. An estimated 3-4 million Muslims are migrants from former Soviet regions, including 2 million Azeris, 1 million Kazakhs, and several hundred thousand Uzbeks, Tajiks and Kyrgyz."

Oh boy.

I would never have expected this. Doesn't Russia have a terrorism problem of it's own? Don't they also have the largest population of Neo-Nazis too?

If Iran gets attacked, Russia will definitely defend them.

Muslim majorities are going to start popping up everywhere. Fastest growing religion..

What a cluster #.

Here's what I think will go down. Iran goes to war with Israel or the USA; Russia will send their Muslim soldiers just so they can get rid of them. The Russians don't like their Muslims just as the Chinese Govt does'nt like theirs....must I say more?

i don't care how many muslims are in any army, freedom of religion is a human right.
it's only when politics are based on religion when it becomes a problem.
each governent should be for it's people not its religious views.

That's a very interesting angle because the future Gog/ Magog war in the Bible indicates that Russia will be involved in a war with Israel and I've never been able to picture how that could go down. But if, as the article predicts, the Russian army becomes majority Muslim soon, then they may be more inclined to join a conflict against Israel then they might otherwise have been.

You could have added that the rest of the Russian army will be heading westwards.
And than?
I know what will happen after that, but you wouldn't believe it.

Russia's always had a large Muslim minority; the 1917-1991 USSR, even more so.

It's hardly surprising that a large swathe of immigrants from the ex-Soviet Central Asian and Caucasian countries will become army recruits in Russia.

This is no big deal.

Islamophobia on ATS in 3.....2.....1

Just so you know, historically Christian armies have killed and conquested many more countries and peoples than Muslim armies.

As Canadian poster ju87 remarks in a forum post attached to the quoted article,

"The article is written by Daniel Pipes, a noted neocon who actually believed there were WMDs in Iraq. This is a man who'd do anything to raise an alarm about Islam. So it's most likely the article and the numbers are completely crap."

and:

"Most Muslims in the CIS are quite detached from their religion, I know some personally. This is mostly due to their forced secularization under Soviet rule. They're nowhere near the turban-strapping fanatics you're hoping they would be."

I highly agree with this poster.
Moreover, Russians have trouble with Chechnyan separatists, some of whom have extremist Muslim ties. And, Russia has a large neo-fascist movement, with private army training, and the highest targeted people by them are Muslim minorities from the former republics of the Soviet State, trying to make a living in Russia...

russian defending iran depends on if they are sunni or shiite right?

its a problem all it takes is one radicalized muslim in a key postion and all hell will break loose.

corruption in the former soviet unions military is well known and sold just about everything you can think of.

whats more dangerous is the chance to get a suitcase nuke.

alarmists thread yes and no.

anything can happen these days the only certainity of things is their uncertianity.

is that right and what phobia is it again? be honest



If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.

And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.

And the vinedressers took his servants, beat one, killed one, and stoned another. Again he sent other servants, more than the first, and they did likewise to them. Then last of all he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ So they took him and cast him out of the vineyard and killed him.
“Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vinedressers?”

CHRISTIANS – THE MOST PERSECUTED PEOPLE GROUP ON EARTH
By Anthony Browne, Europe correspondent of the Times.

Rising nationalism and fundamentalism around the world have meant that Christianity is going back to its roots as the religion of the persecuted. There are now more than 300 million Christians who are either threatened with violence or legally discriminated against simply because of their faith — more than any other religion. Christians are no longer, as far as I am aware, thrown to the lions. But from China, North Korea and Malaysia, through India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, they are subjected to legalised discrimination, violence, imprisonment, relocation and forced conversion. Even in supposedly Christian Europe, Christianity has become the most mocked religion, its followers treated with public suspicion and derision.
