A screen grab taken from a video posted on website vdagestan.com showing a two men believed to be Suleiman and Abdul Rahman, suicide bombers in last month's deadly bombings in Volgograd.

Two members of an Islamist organization claimed responsibility in a new video for the deadly bombings in Russia earlier this month, and warned that a “surprise” was in store for the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The pair of Russian-speaking men from the militant group Vilayat Dagestan said in the video that emerged Sunday that more violence is coming if Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t call off the winter games, the Associated Press reports. “If you hold these Olympics, we will give you a present for the innocent Muslim blood being spilled all around the world: in Afghanistan, in Somalia, in Syria,” they say. “For the tourists who come, there will be a present, too.”

The authenticity of the 49-minute video, which shows the pair of men appearing to construct explosive devices and explain why they would attack, could not be verified. The video claims that the duo, identified as Suleiman and Abdurakhaman, were the suicide attackers in deadly blasts earlier this month in the Russian city of Volgograd.

They continued that the two-day Volgograd attack, which killed 34 people over two days, “is only a little example” of what they can do and, in a portion of the video directed at Russian officials, said they “will continue to kill you and your soldiers.”

Putin immediately stepped up security ahead of the Olympics, which take place between Feb. 7-23. Over the weekend, he said he “will try to make sure that the security measures taken aren’t too intrusive or visible and that they won’t put pressure on the athletes, guests and journalists,” but that “at the same time, we will do our best to ensure that these measures are efficient.”

One way to hit back at misguided,  'suicide bombers' would be to blackout all news reports and broadcasts of such incidents. TERRORISM 's lifeblood is spreading 'terror' and  our liberal media helps to spread  this fear of  terror far and wide! But  the  world media will  never support   and fight tooth and nail  ,any move  to prevent them from broadcasting  'live' reports that show blood and gore as it brings them  high viewer 'ratings' and  plenty of money.   The two  young persons shown as 'suicide bombers'  in the picture evoke our misplaced sympathy  for their extreme 'youth'. This is a part of the  cunning propaganda put out by the Al-qaeda and similar organisations to gain support for their 'cause' .  Sadly   we  may have to witness many more brutal attacks by  anarchist cowards in Sochi ,Syria,Iraq, Iran,Pakistan, India... in 2014.

What should trouble Muslims is that, in the name of Islam, it is so easy to recruit nuts, willing to kill themselves and others, in the name of Allah! Russia may have some explaining to do for their treatment of Chechens, but to target innocents visiting Sochi is the act of a coward!

Evil has always been notorious for twisting various religions of the world, thereby spinning off sects, cults, or other deviations of that religion. It is those people within these religious spinoffs that, in their smugness and evil ways, attempt to assert their control over the rest of us. Overall, that has and will continue to fail. The perverted cowards in this article profess that their tirade against Olympic innocents is justified since so many "innocent" Muslims have been killed over the years. Those who believe this are of an evil nature. They present themselves in exactly what the basis of what true Islam speaks out against. They do not hold onto their (corrupted) beliefs any more strongly than the remaining 1.6 billion followers of the Qur'an hold onto theirs. 


Some where, the twist in all of this suggests the God held as the one true God for this evil group is separate from any other god that the infidels call their own. Forget accuracies here while remembering that those who make it their life to complicate what should be good measures with LOVE as the ultimate outcome are indeed the evil that permeates among us -- the truly innocent. Until that ONE special day this will attempt to spill out of control -- but WILL ultimately FAIL.

Those of opposing all kinds of RACIAL PROFILING & NSA like here's my question SWOOPING  to you guys?


How else can Russia ensure safety of the games without RACIAL & RELIGIOUS PROFILING and NSA like SWOOPING of the Chechan terrorists, and the millions of their Muslim supporters in Russia, in Europe, in the US, in the ME all waiting to re-enact a Munich Games/Belan School like slaughter?


Fortunately, Russians don't seem to have a lot of COVERT ISLAMISTS like CNN's Mr. Fareed Zakaria who are hoodwinking the US & Europe to let their guard down.....all in the garb of human rights, building bridges between Muslims and the West, winning over "so-called" Moderates etc. none of which has ever materialized.........and been a MIRAGE at best!


Having said that, Mr. Zakaria who has been passionately defending ISALMIC RADICALS including their TERRORIST ACTS had unashamedly blamed the Russians for Chechan Terror.

For instance merely days after the deadly Moscow a/p bombings even as the Russians were still picking up dead bodies from the dastardly attack Mr. Zakaria wrote this article blaming the Russians for CREATING Chechan terror.

Ref: How Russia Created ITS OWN ISLAMIC TERRORISM PROBLEM" Time, Jan 27th 2011

Likewise, immediately after the 9/11 bombings, Mr. Zakaria wrote an opinion piece calling AMERICA AS THE GREATEST DANGER TO THE WORLD & NOT AL-QAEDA!!!

Ref: Ref: Reflections on 9/11 and aftermath CNN GPS Sept 9th, 2011

And, days after the dastardly Mumbai attacks Mr. Zakaria found a ready explanation & understanding of Muslim terror by saying

"One of the untold stories of India is that the Muslim population has NOT shared in the boom the country has enjoyed over the last ten years. There is still a lot of INSTITUTIONAL DISCRIMINATION, and many REMAIN PERSECUTED. There's enough alienation out there that there are LOCALS WHO CAN BE DRWAN INTO PLOTS. That TENDS TO BE A PATTERN, from MADRID to CASABLANCA to BALI

(Ref: "Mayhem in Mumbai - MAKING SENSE of India's Terrorist Attacks" !!!!! - Newsweek Nov 25, 2008).

Also we saw a steady stream of Mr. Zakaria's PROPHETIC ANALYSIS praising the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD for bringing ISLAMIC DEMOCRACY, even as he completely forgot the butcher of COPTIC CHRISTIANS. In fact mere days after the Alexandria mega church was burnt down Mr.Zakaria was in Egypt and wrote back such an analysis praising what he terms GLORIOUS ISLAMIC DEMOCRACY with NO MENTION of the plight of the hapless CHRISTIANS.

Why There's No Turning Back in the Middle East

Still we call Mr. Zakaria a "PATRIOTIC MODERATE" Muslim!!!!!

homicide bombers are delusional and sick people. they are delusional because they believe their "invisible guy in the sky" is talking to them.... they are liars because no religion tells you to go murder people... to them, they are big huge victims.... everything is everybody else's fault in their lives and of course they've never (sic) done anything that warrants them being accountable to the rest of the world for their actions, right? This is what happens when economies keep people in poverty. Ignorance and stupidity, starvation. They fall prey to asinine ideologies to somehow morally justify their idiocy.

The world WAS NOT created over the course of a week by some invisible angry guy and when called upon to prove their case, religious nut bags will either pull out a gun, tell you you're condemned to hell because these cookie land morons would rather murder someone than to face the truth that they've been conned... by a fellow moron. They are not suicide bombers. The word suicide indicates you have something of value to give to the world. They are homicide bombers. No better than the Nazi's of world war two and every bit as deranged. Their message will be rightly utterly DISREGARDED as long as they keep killing INNOCENT CIVILIANS.

It is extremely hard to protect against this type of terrorism. It is like if someone threatens to kill you. They will, unless you kill them first, but these terrorist are invisable. Good luck Putin  your going to need it.

"Muslim blood." And there you have an irrational, tribal, violent, expansionist, Stone Age faith in a nutshell. "Muslim blood." If it wasn't so vile a notion, it would be comical.

Russia has nothing to explain to those radical Chechans. After the first Chechan war in the 1990's Russia gave the Chechans a great deal of autonomy, and pumped in billions of its own money into their economy (even building some of the grandest Mosques in Grozny). In return for all these largesse, the Chechans went on a kidnapping for ransom spree, and the entire region became a haven for terrorists, drug lords etc. The Chechans also indulged in some of the most heinous terror acts (Beslan School Massacre, Moscow a/p bombing, Moscow Theater Siege etc.).

None of these barbaric acts, made even a dent on the blind support from worldwide Muslims, incl. "so-called" moderate Muslims but in reality COVERT ISLAMISTS such as Time's Indian-American Mr. Fareed Zakaria.


Russia had no choice but to re-take control of this barbaric people.
