Jihad is a global phenomenon, an Islamic supremacist war against the non-Muslim world. It is the only global war in human history in which the defensive forces have forbidden themselves to examine or understand the motives and goals of those who have vowed to destroy them.
“Four men jailed over Moscow airport bombing,” from Reuters, November 11 (thanks to Lookmann):
Moscow: A Russian court jailed three men for life and one for 10 years on Monday over their role in a suicide bombing which killed 37 people at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport nearly three years ago.
Chechen warlord Doku Umarov says he ordered the attack on Jan. 24, 2011, as part of an Islamist insurgency against Russian rule of the North Caucasus and has urged supporters to attack the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Black Sea city of Sochi.
Brothers Islam and Ilez Yandiyev, Akhmed Yevloyev and Bashir Khamkhoyev were jailed for offences including commissioning an act of terror, murder and attempted murder.
Only Yevloyev did not receive a life sentence from the Moscow regional court, Russian news agencies said. Prosecutors had asked for a shorter term for him because he was a minor at the time of the attack.
State prosecutors said the four had helped the suicide bomber travel from their native region of Ingushetia in the North Caucasus to Moscow and providing him with an apartment, an explosives belt and transport….
Umarov, the leader of Russia’s Islamist insurgency, has urged his fighters to use “maximum force” to sabotage the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February.
