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."
"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...
