5 reasons the west should stop attacking Russia and start fighting terrorism

Russia fights terrorism. Russia does not undermine the west, kill western citizens nor does it hate Islam.

Many people have pointed out that even as it became clear that the carnage in Britain was due to a terorist attack, CNN continued to lead with ‘Russiagate’ stories.

Far from just embarrassing America on an international stage and undermining American democracy, Russiagate is making people in the west less safe.

Here’s why

1. Terrorism is a real threat, Russia is not

No one, dare I say not even the Russophobes in the Democratic Party, John McCain and CNN go to sleep at night worrying if Russia will attack. No one goes to a concert in an sports area thinking that Russians will let off explosives, dismembering their bodies with shrapnel and killing their young children. It simply does not cross anyone’s mind because such things have never happened, never could and never will.

Terrorism is a very real threat whether one is in New York or Saint Petersburg, London or Damascus. It is a common threat from a common Salafist/Wahhabist/jihadist enemy.

Even the war criminal George W. Bush knew that terrorism was the issue and Russia was not. The fact that he looked for terrorism where it didn’t exist and overthrew an anti-terrorist Iraqi government is a separate and equally important issue.

Those today who say that Russia is a danger are even more stupid than the famously, un-intelligent ‘Dubya’.

2. Russia is actively fighting terrorism 

In the early 2000s, Russia helped restore calm to Chechnya and Dagestan after a partly western backed jihdaist war in the 1990s.

Today, Russia is the largest member of the anti-terrorist coalition in Syria, fighting ISIS, al-Qaeda, FSA and other jihadists on a daily basis.

Russia is willing to welcome others to this coalition. Donald Trump was once keen to join it too.

3. Terrorists disrupt elections, not Russia

The recent bombing in Britain which has killed over 20 people, including children, comes weeks before big Parliamentary elections. In Paris, a terrorist attack occurred shortly before the potentially game-changing French Presidential election.

These actions are trying to negatively influence and disrupt democracy. Russia does not interfere in anyone’s elections. They just wish foreigners would stop trying to interfere in their elections!

4. Russia is anti-terrorist but not anti-Islam 

In the west, the debate has devolved into such a state where the left have become apologists for terrorists under the guise of fighting Islamophobia, where many on the right think that ‘all Muslims are terrorists’.

Russia could teach many valuable lessons on this. Russia has a massive Muslim population that lives in peace and harmony with Orthodoxy Christians, Jews, Buddhists and atheists.

Russia understands that this is a Wahhabi problem not a Muslim problem and that furthermore, one cannot fund terrorism in Syria (as the west does with its proxies) and then hope that there will be no jihadist blow-back in the other direction.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all ‘moderate rebels’ ARE TERRORISTS. 

5. Russia always condemns terrorist attacks on the west 

The Russian government and Russian citizens are among the first to condemn terrorist attacks even when they occur in places whose governments are anti-Russian.

In spite of members of the British Parliament lying about Russia and Russians on a regular basis, people in cities like Moscow are all reading bringing flowers to the British embassy in a sign of respect and condolence.

This attitude helps people to rediscover their humanity. It would be wise for it to be universally adopted.

There are many true facts in this article, however saying that all Muslims are not terrorists, is not the same thing as apologizing for terrorists. And Putin did help Trump because he wanted to get rid of restictions on adoption and felt he had a better chance with him, than Hillary.
