Now wait a minute. Didn't the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims at those mosques rise up and cast these miscreants out?
"Russian police detain members of banned Islamic group," from  Reuters, November 12 (thanks to Benedict):
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian police have arrested six members of a banned Islamic group on suspicion of recruiting followers in Moscow mosques and possessing weapons, the Interior Ministry said on Monday....
The Interior Ministry said the detainees were members of the Islamic Revival Party, which was designated as an international terrorist group by Russia's Supreme Court and banned.
Police searching places where the detainees were staying found nine hand grenades and other weapons and ammunition, as well as extremist literature.
It a statement the ministry said leaders and members of the group had been "conducting active recruiting at mosques in Moscow and also distributing extremist literature and drawing other people into illegal activity."...
Attacks on government-backed Muslim leaders in the Volga River province of Tatarstan in July added to fears of a spread of Islamist violence.
Rights activists say the violence is fuelled in part of heavy-handed police tactics and intolerance for religious beliefs outside the mainstream.
Yeah, that's it. It's all the non-Muslims' fault, as always.
