No Place to Hide

Did they make you exchange
A walk-on part in the war
For a leading role in a cage?

"Wish you were here," Pink Floyd

At some point the war will come to your town, and to your door.Islam is by text and tradition a fascist poligion, a violence inducing ideology in its adherents, and they are building up for the great eschatological movement of their belief system. They want war, and there is no reasoning with them.

Today we find that Islam in Central Asia is ready to go to war against America. Islam across the world is at war with the West. It won't diminish. It won't go away. You cna't pretend that this is all a misunderstanding of the Qur'an on the part of a few malcontents who need jobs and will soon go back to the suburbs to continue their happy lives once we leave them alone. We are facing the spread of war daily, and we must act to preserve ourselves.

Opinion & analysis
Uzbek extremists threaten the U.S.
Print version

MOSCOW (RIA Novosti commentator Pyotr Goncharov) - It is possible that extremists in Uzbekistan are attempting to take revenge on the U.S.

According to the U.S. Department of State, it has information indicating that supporters of extremist religious groups, such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), al-Qaeda, the Islamic Jihad and the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, which operate actively in the region, plan to conduct a series of terrorist acts against "the U.S. state and private interests" in Uzbekistan in the near future.

There is nothing surprising in the fact that the threats against the U.S. are coming from religious extremist Islamic organizations. The question is why they are coming from Uzbekistan in particular. Could it be that the Islamic factor in this Central Asian republic is aggressive in its nature? Or may be Tashkent overestimated its role in the recent events in Andijan?

Ever since the 1990s, Uzbekistan has been the focus of attention on the part of Islamic religious organizations operating in Central Asia. The reason is simple. The republic occupies a strategically advantageous position in the region; it possesses developed economic potential and boasts high rates of population growth.

The events of the 1990s, related to the collapse of the Soviet Union and the emergence of new independent states, were accompanied in Central Asia not only by a sharp rise of national self-consciousness, but also by a fast development of the religious factor. It was then that such religious groups and movements as Akromiya (named after its founder mullah Akrom), Adolat (Justice), Islam lashkarlari (Warriors of Islam), Tabliqh (Muslim Mission), Tovba (Repentance), and Nur (Ray of Light) emerged in Uzbekistan. They operated mostly in the Fergana Valley, later becoming part of the IMU or another well-known Islamic organization Hizb-ul-Tahrir.

The IMU and the Hizb-ul-Tahrir never attempted to hide their ultimate goal - the creation of the Islamic Caliphate in the region, contrary to the Tajik Islamic opposition, which never spread its interests beyond the borders of the republic. The Fergana Valley, located at the boundary of three republics (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan) has always attracted special interest on the part of Islamic organizations. It is quite understandable. If they manage to establish control over the Fergana Valley, the first step toward their coveted dream will be certainly made.

The events in Kyrgyzstan and the ensuing tension in the south of the republic threatened the stability in the Fergana Valley. Even then, there were fears that the religious extremist groups operating at the boundary of the three republics would soon, as early as in May-July, attempt to stage civil disturbances in the form of "public discontent" or "public mutiny." The May events in Andijan confirmed these fears.

The events in Andijan can be regarded from different angles, and that is exactly what is happening around the world. Europe almost unanimously condemned Islam Karimov for "disproportional use of force" by Uzbek special police units against the mutineers. Recently, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly called for the revision of Uzbekistan's participation in the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC) and the Partnership for Peace program, and urged NATO members to stop any assistance to Uzbek armed forces. The U.S. also expressed its traditional concern about the violation of human rights, albeit in a less categorical way.

At the same time, Muslim countries avoided strong criticism of Tashkent, and the imam of the world-famous Muslim center - the Al-Azhar University in Cairo -- Sheik Mohammed Sayed Tantawi announced his full support of "the irreconcilable position of Uzbekistan in the fight against religious extremism and terrorism."

Neighboring republics also abstained from harsh criticism of Tashkent. Apparently, they know better. Bishkek, Dushanbe and especially Tashkent still remember the events the late 1990s in the Batkensky region of Kyrgyzstan, where IMU groups took up arms to proclaim the Islamic state.

According to some Russian experts, Uzbekistan, being a central link in the region, will be the target of attacks on the part of extremist groups. The threats against the U.S. might certainly indicate an attempt to retaliate against the leader of anti-terrorist coalition, which conducts successful operations in the neighboring Afghanistan. However, what is really interesting is whether these threats will force the U.S. and Europe to look at the situation in Uzbekistan from a different perspective?


Who even knows where these miserable countries are? And yet, though they know even less about us thean we know about them, they declare war. We must understand the nature of the fascist poligion that is Islam. We must prepare for war and the colonial Western triumphant conquest of the world to spread freedom and liberal democracy throughout, regardless of the resistence we might meet. We must conquer the world.
