This is the sort of measure that the countries west of Poland have been so far unwilling to take. But realistically, if one cannot by any means screen out the jihadists from the moderate Muslims, and the moderates are not helping identify the jihadists either, is what the Poles have done really so unreasonable? From Itar-Tass, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
MINSK, September 13 (Itar-Tass) – According to various data, between 100 and 150 Russian citizens from Chechnya congregated in the Belarussian city of Brest. Most of them are expected to try again on Monday to cross the Belarussian-Polish border.
On Sunday, over 90 Chechens passed the Brest border passage point, but 75 of them were forced to return to Belarus several hours later. On Saturday, the Polish side admitted only 24 Russian citizens of the Chechen nationality out of 125. No explanations have been received from the Polish side so far why the Polish authorities refused to admit Russian citizens. According to Belarussian borderguards, Russian Chechens have in order all documents, necessary for a foreign trip.
