Let me begin by saying that I am not a big supporter of Konstantin Dushenov. Without going into a long detailed discussion about this, let’s just say that I don’t consider myself a nationalist. However, I will readily admit that Dushenov makes some excellent points and that I do agree with a lot of what he says. This time, I decided to post his short commentary about Islam to show that in Russia, even the hardcore nationalists are very pro-Islamic, at least by European or US standards. There is an (apparent) paradox here: the Russians fought the Takfiris in at least 3 extremely vicious wars (Afghanistan, First Chechen and Second Chechen) and yet after 35+ years of fighting the Takfiris there is no Islamophobia in Russia. Amazing no? In the West, all it took to trigger an anti-Muslim hysteria was a few false flags, and millions of westerners immediately bought into the “Islamic boogeyman” canard. Russians fight Takfiris in wars far more brutal and violent than anything experienced by the US/NATO militaries, and yet they do not indulge in Islam-bashing.
What do the Russians know which folks in the West apparently ignore?
I leave you with Dushenov’s comments on this topic.
