Yuri Mikhailov, Veniamin Popov: Geopolitics and IslamThe geopolitical changes that occurred at the beginning of the 21st century in the countries of the Islamic world, which look like a set of natural factors, are in fact a manifestation of the most complicated qualitative shift in the balance of forces on the planet. For some political scientists, all this is nothing more than short-sighted games of the politicians of the most powerful world power, the United States of America, the result of their supposedly intellectual weakness and strategic short-sightedness.


Today, of course, there is little in the world without Americans. And we must give them their due - they skillfully defend their national interests. But, in order to open the true springs of the current cataclysms, it is necessary to take into account the events of not only recent years, but to look much wider historical period.

The United States learned well that in the Middle East, the entire twentieth century passed under the banner of an Islamic intellectual revival. But they felt it most clearly in connection with the Islamic revolution in Iran, 1979, and later - at the dawn of the new millennium, in turmoil caused by the tragic events of 11, September 2001.

After centuries of stagnation, Islamic thinkers of the end of 19 - the beginning of 20 of the 20th century, from Islamic reformers, enlighteners and fighters against colonialism, Said Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani, Abd ar-Rahman al-Kawakibi, Said Ahmad-Khan, Muhammad Abdo and Rashid Reeds and representatives of the Tatar movement of renewal (Jadidism) marked the beginning of an intellectual revival. They set themselves the task of understanding the role of Muslims in the future world and, above all, the social essence of Islamic doctrine, to designate the place of the state in the development and modernization of modern society. At the same time, the idea that Islam should stand in the vanguard of human development passed through the ideas of these reformers, and the Muslim state was called upon to ensure the well-being of not only its faithful citizens, but of all the Gentiles, which was the most important feature of the Caliphate during its heyday.

These ideas were most clearly embodied in the mid-twentieth century in the teachings of Ali Shariati, who made a significant contribution to the development of the social doctrine of Islam. The strict system of the Shiite hierarchy helped to spread the views of the Shariah among the Iranian clergy.

The result was the 1979 Islamic Revolution of the Year, led by the charismatic leader, Ayatollah Khomeini. If in the past it was a backward semi-colonial state, then after more than three decades, the Islamic Republic of Iran has become a leading regional power, demonstrating high rates of intellectual growth (for example, in 2013, Iran has risen to 17 place in the world scientific rating, and The development of science has bypassed virtually all major countries, including China, the growth of spending on research by the government of the country is scheduled to increase to the 2029 year from the current 1% to 4% of GDP, to the 2019 year, the Iranians gathered vit man into space aboard its own rocket). All this shows the real possibilities of true political Islam.

The example of Iran, as well as the outlined prospect that the total wealth and potential of the countries of the Near and Middle East might suddenly become in demand by them for their own development, did not frighten the Americans in earnest.

The aging and weakening West has felt a rival in the resurgent Islamic East. Shiite Islam in fact showed powerful mobilization abilities and the ability to defend their own interests (after all, Shiites only 15% of 1,6 billion Muslims of the planet). If the Sunni project is able to demonstrate success, then, according to American analysts, the consequences of such a phenomenon will be a serious problem for the United States. It is not by chance that many American political scientists have openly started talking about the fact that the more internecine wars and feuds will shock the countries of Islam, the easier it will be for the United States to maintain its dominant positions. This naturally implies the main task of the United States at this stage - to split the Islamic and Arab world as far as possible, to contribute to the emergence of new hot spots of constant tension by any available means, up to and including provocations related to weapons mass destruction. As a result - the desire to create obedient regimes, regardless of whether they are religious or secular, republic or monarchy. Americans reason simply: if the Middle East is left alone for a decade, this will result in the emergence of a dangerous and practically uncontrollable global player who can in his own way manage existing energy resources and withdraw all of his assets from Western banks and depositories, which will lead to unprecedented shocks and crises of the western economy. In order to prevent this in any way, regional interstate and intrastate conflicts are provoked every now and then, and time-affected mines are systematically laid under the region. The initiators of these actions do not shun any means in fomenting inter-ethnic, interethnic, inter-religious crises and direct military interventions. In general, Americans are well aware of what they are doing and why.

An analysis of the reports of the Western press in recent weeks shows that the example of the unsuccessful political project of Sunni Islam is strongly promoted by the example of the unsuccessful attempt of the Muslim Brotherhood to govern the state. The idea of ​​the insuperability of the confrontation between the Sunnis and the Shiites, which, they say, has only one real prospect - the increase of tension, passing into the phase of mutual extermination, is persistently imposed. From time to time, the voices of those for whom Shiites are not just non-Muslims, but notorious heretics, immoral sectarians and complete fools who do not deserve the right to life, as if accidentally erupt into the world information space.

A purposeful campaign is being carried out to marginalize Islam, asserting that Islam is not able to develop its own positive program, that Islamic teaching is always violence, blood, vandalism and the destruction of traditional society. Such propaganda is quite skillfully conducted both at the level of academic research and in the media.

The current geopolitical reality is such that the decrepitude of Western civilization forces its elite to look for more and more new sources of "rejuvenation." The United States is concerned not so much about rescuing its allies in the context of the unfolding global economic and civilizational crisis, as about ensuring its own survival and maintaining its leading position, even at the expense of Europe. Hence the desire to draw Europeans into conflicts in the Middle East, and at the same time ensure the security of their own territory.

No matter what the officials in Washington say, the actions of the United States show that they essentially contribute to the growth of Islamic radicalism, which they use as a proven and reliable tool to undermine the positions of all possible competitors. With the actual indulgence of Americans, hotbeds of extremist terrorist activity are created in Syria, Iraq, Libya and a number of other states, and all kinds of discord are gradually incited. The calculation is being made that the internecine struggle will acquire an extremely protracted character, depleting and bleeding the region, extremely weakening potential rivals and competitors.

Washington apparently believes that the military, economic power and territorial position of the United States will allow them to remain above the clash and maintain a decisive role in international politics.

In fact, building such “search projects” is an unsafe business, because, as the episode with the Tsarnaev brothers and the trial of Major Hassan Nydahl show, such a policy, with all its apparent accuracy, will eventually boomerang the United States. In addition, internal “fighters against the regime” may appear within the system, and we are already witnessing the first beginnings of this phenomenon - using the actions of Private Bradley Manning and NSA officer Edward Snowden as an example.

The events unfolding in the Islamic world cannot pass without a trace for our country, especially as there are about 20 million Muslims among Russians. It must be taken into account that the defining feature of the Muslim religion is Islamic solidarity, when it is impossible to draw a line between domestic and foreign Islam. Islam is not just the cultural past of our peoples. A Muslim, following the Qur'an, should confirm his faith not only in mosques, but in everyday practice. The way of life of the faithful is religiously motivated. Since the social doctrine of today's Islam is practically not developed, believers, willy-nilly, are pushed to what is available. And there are only the foundations of medieval society, quite successful for its time. Many of the norms of the Islamic Middle Ages do not simply contradict the realities of the 21st century, but generate tensions in society. And the problem here is not at all in religion, but in the absence of a creative, constructive approach to understanding what the view of the Prophet’s teaching should be from the standpoint of modernity.

The absence of real shifts in the creative development of the social teachings of Islam, and in some cases even purposeful inhibition of these processes — even if it is said that this is done for the good of society — actually clears the way for the new radical groups. There is a vicious circle. It comes to the fact that certain representatives of Muslim youth perceive, as a guide to action, the installation of conservative ulamas that the indicated contradiction between the medieval system of values ​​and the challenges of modernity can be lifted only by compulsory means, not excluding violence and terror against stubborn "infidels."

Many Russian political analysts believe that the blasts of radicalism in the Middle East will be echoed in our internal life, and even directly cause detonation.

Today, the issue of creating a Russian school of Islamic theology and law, which could absorb the best traditions of Dagestan and Tatar Islamic intellectuals, is acutely on the agenda. We cannot depend on the interpretation of certain events dictated by foreign Muslim jurists to blindly accept the judgments of foreign theologians, who sometimes act in the interests of their countries or certain religious groups. Russia should have its own theological school, which will not only ensure the sovereignty of the Russian spiritual space, but which Muslims around the world will listen to.

In the current geopolitical configuration, the role of Russia is significantly increasing, while the tension between the West and Islam has both increased and will increase. Even today in the Islamic world there is an increasing demand for the Russian presence. In this regard, the recent arrival in Moscow of the head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Bandera, is remarkable. A few days ago, one of the central Egyptian publications published an article entitled “Cairo is waiting for Putin,” which says that “Russia's growing role and influence is holding back American hegemony over the Arab world.”

In the current conditions, we should more actively turn to the Islamic world, debunking Western projects that are destructive for all mankind, and which manipulate countries and peoples, information and public consciousness. Unlike the West, Russia is not only not interested in splitting or redrawing the Islamic world, but is pursuing a consistent and firm line to maintain its unity and integrity.

As is known, Orthodoxy and Islam historically have always acted together, serving as a pillar of Russian statehood. Russia is not interested in any bias - neither towards the West, nor towards the East. We want stability and prosperity - both in the West and in the East, and not the well-being of one at the expense of the other. We do not need a "housemate who has a fire in the apartment."

In today's alarming situation, Russia may appeal to the West: "Stop splitting the Islamic world!", And the Islamic world - with the Koran call and edification of the Prophet Muhammad: "Do not be enemies to each other!"

Russian politics has always been and will be distinguished by concern for security and social justice.

    Islam should develop a vaccine against radicalism, both internal and implanted from the outside - if this does not happen, this religion will turn into a bloody nightmare for the peoples of our planet.
    I still hope that puppeteers from the United States will not be able to plunge our humanity into a bloody swamp.
    Indeed, most people are normal people who have children, beloved women, parents and the desire to kill is inherent only to a bunch of villains and scumbags for whom human life is nothing.

    Good article!
    The USA uses the old and effective method. For their survival, they are ready to pit everyone with everyone ..... They did not accidentally choose Islam for their bloody goals. After all, Islamic religious rhetoric is easy to turn into extremist! The worst thing is that, in principle, there are no measures to counter this terrible process. There is one measure - this is the guarantor of security and stability on the part of Russia. Again the Slavs laid upon us a burden to save the world from the total war of all against all ........

    The point is not in Allah, but in those who interpret the Quran in their interests. There are no good and bad religions, there are good and bad followers.

      Quote: Stiletto
      The point is not in Allah, but in those who interpret the Quran in their interests.

      The problem is that it is precisely in the Quran, in contrast to the Old and New Testaments, that in plain text it was ordered to kill and mutilate the infidels, it was even explained in detail how.
      2 (191). And kill them [the infidels], wherever you meet them, expel them from the places from which they expelled you, because for them delusion is worse than death at your fingertips.
      2 (193). Fight with them until disbelief disappears and faith in Allah is established. If they cease [to be unfaithful], then there should be no hostility, except to the wicked.
      3 (28). Believers may not be friends with unbelievers besides believers. And if someone is friends with unbelievers, then he will not deserve any reward from Allah, except when you are in danger from them.
      5 (33). Verily, those who fight against Allah and His Messenger and commit wickedness on earth will be killed or crucified in retribution, or they will have chopped off arms and legs, or they will be expelled from the country. And all [this] for them is a great shame in this world, and in the next life [awaits] their great punishment.
      8 (12). [Remember, Muhammad] how your Lord inspired the angels [sent to help the Muslims]: Verily, I am with you. So give support to those who believe! I sow fear in the hearts of those who did not believe. So chop their heads off and chop off all your fingers (thirteen). [in revenge] for avoiding obedience to Allah and His Messenger. If anyone shies away from obeying Allah and His Messenger, then Allah is strong in punishment.
      9 (29). Fight with those who do not believe in Allah and on the last day of Judgment, who do not consider it forbidden that Allah and His Messenger forbade, who do not obey the true religion - those who are sent down the scripture until they give their own redemption, being humiliated.
      Of course, there are wise men of Islam who are trying to prove that this must be understood in a historical and geographical context, etc., and there was something completely different in mind. But a simple, not burdened by a higher Islamic education, parishioner of the mosque, having heard these particular lines quoted by the mullah, since he himself does not know the ancient Arabic, will take them at face value and grab hold of a knife or Kalash.
      Quote: Stiletto
      There are no good and bad religions, there are good and bad followers.

      I would like to believe. But here's the catch. Something I have never come across videos where terrorists, killing, shout "Christ is risen" or "Shema Israel", but "Allahu Akbar" - as much as necessary. So there is one of two things: either the Muslims themselves will burn the filth out of Islam with a hot iron, or civilization will burn Islam with a hot iron. Well, either civilization will collapse under the onslaught of Islam, but somehow I don't want to consider this option.

    I think that it would be nice for Islamic spiritual leaders to gather joint councils and resolve all issues and disagreements there ... Condemn extreme radical trends, condemn fascist Wahhabism ... And what Islam now demonstrates characterizes it as a religion of hatred, war and intolerance to others ... Because many do not understand the currents of Islam, and do not want to understand them, they just see a picture on TV with another "shahid" ...

The second is a native of Dagestan (according to various sources, he is 16 or 17 years old). The teenager came to St. Petersburg to his relatives.

              You are mistaken, I live within Russia, albeit in an exclave. Unfortunately, we have such sentiments. There are several reasons.
              Really. the behavior of some representatives of the peoples of the North Caucasus is different from what you can not call provocative.
              Those. those who behave in such a way are usually very limited comrades, they are not able to understand that if they bring it, they will be strangled like hens.
              But on the other hand, we understand that if this happens, then Russia will instantly be on the brink of collapse.
              This is also understood by those who want this disintegration (after all, this is the only effective way), which is why the Swamps are so actively involved in promoting such sentiments and inflating any petty episode, well, and our few Natsiks joined them.
              That's all - some are deliberately destroying Russia, others are eager for power and dough, others, I'm sorry, just sheep, and do not know what they are doing.
              Any total propaganda is bearing fruit. And Russia traditionally lags behind opponents in the propaganda issue. And hello, about thieves crooks, enough to feed a Caucasian cousin of all the wines and gusters and a bloody Putin regime sinks into some heads ... who has a hole in it, mostly .... :)))

    "Since the social doctrine of today's Islam has practically not been developed, the believers, willy-nilly, are pushed to what is available. And there are only the foundations of a medieval society, which was quite successful for its time. Many norms of the Islamic Middle Ages do not just obviously contradict the realities XXI century, but they generate tension in society. And the problem here is not at all in religion, but in the absence of a creative constructive approach to understanding what should be the view of the teachings of the Prophet from the standpoint of modernity. "
    You can immediately see who wrote the article! Discount for amateurs, they would write simply: Islamic radicalism is bad! I agree! Everything else is verbiage far from understanding. How can the canons of thinking, behavior, etc. which are spelled out in the Qur'an, integrate into "a creative constructive approach to understanding what should be the view of the Prophet's teachings from the standpoint of modernity." Rave! The norms of morality and norms of behavior are higher than the concept of modernity or non-modernity. It's like interpreting the commandments from the Bible in a modern way, like a glamor or something !? Any liberal or arbitrary interpretation of the norms of Islam will lead to the fact that soon same-sex marriages will be registered in mosques! The problem is that in the Islamic world there is no spiritual leader who would not be afraid to name the murderers who hide behind and are far from true Islam! Those who are not afraid to do this on the ground in their regions are killed, such as the mufti in Kazan or imams in Dagestan. The state looks at it from the outside! As if it doesn't concern him!

    Our enemies, internal and external, sense the "weakness of the state", sense the corruption of bureaucrats and take advantage of it with pleasure. With a strong state, this is impossible. It just so happened that everyone is drawn to the "strong", respect the "strong", fear the "strong", listen and obey the "strong". That's the key.
    If a person is full, dressed, shod, he has a house, work, prospects, confidence in the future ... why does he need Wahhabism?

    In today's alarming situation, Russia may appeal to the West with an appeal: "Stop splitting the Islamic world!", And to the Islamic world - with the Quranic appeal and edification of the Prophet Muhammad: "Do not be enemies to each other!"

    Yes Yes. kneel down and ask forlooking into the eyes belittle West- "Stop splitting Islam !!! ... let it be one like a fist !!!"
    And then raising your hands to the top, ask the Islamic world: "Do not be enemies to each other !!! (you already have someone ...
    2 (191). And kill them [the infidels], wherever you meet them, expel them from the places from which they expelled you, because for them delusion is worse than death at your fingertips.)

    And let's answer ourselves, what will one and the other do?
    The way out and salvation from the growing Islamization and radicalism -

    It is necessary to build a country, raise its industry, agriculture, provide 100% employment, wage an implacable war with radicalism, and not chew snot (90% of imams in Russia are radical!)

    Islam should develop a vaccine against radicalism, both internal and implanted from the outside - if this does not happen, this religion will turn into a bloody nightmare for the peoples of our planet.
    I still hope that puppeteers from the United States will not be able to plunge our humanity into a bloody swamp.
    Indeed, most people are normal people who have children, beloved women, parents and the desire to kill is inherent only to a bunch of villains and scumbags for whom human life is nothing.

    Not my text. But suggestive.
    The Western world is following with interest the attempts of liberal Muslims such as Tawfik Hamid and Italian Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi to give Islam a civilized image, but Ali Sina offers a more radical method - to destroy Islam.

    Sina heads Faith Freedom International, an internet forum dedicated to exposing Islam, and describes herself as "arguably the world's greatest anti-Islamist." The publication of his latest book, Understanding Muhammad: The Psychobiography of Allah's Prophet, only strengthens his position.

    In her book, Sina writes that the central character of Islam suffered from various mental and mental disorders, including narcissism, epilepsy, and obsessive painful drives. "These disorders," says Ali Sina, "may explain a phenomenon known as Islam, which is solely a manifestation of the insanity of one person."

    Sina grew up in a Muslim family. Brought up in Iran, educated in Pakistan and Italy, he now lives in Canada. He started a duel with Muslims in the 90s. As he told the Jerusalem Post, what worries him most is not the jihadism and intolerance of Muslim fanatics, but the fact that the basis of hatred and intolerance is at the core of the foundations of Islam - in the Koran and other cardinal texts of Islam.

    (On her website Faith Freedom International, Sina lists canonical references to Muhammad's actions and offers $ 50 to anyone who conclusively refutes Sina's claims that the prophet of Islam was a "narcissist", misogynist, rapist, pedophile, libertine, sadist and mass murderer. a terrorist, a madman and a marauder, and led a pagan cult. "Visitors to the site constantly criticize Sina, but so far no one has yet received the coveted prize).

    As Ali Sina argues, Islam is based on violent conquest and contempt for the infidels, and therefore all attempts to create a moderate Islam are doomed to failure.

    "The idea that Islam can be reformed is just a hoax," he explains. "It's like claiming that after reform, Nazism will become a great party."

    No, says Sina, "The only way to reform Islam is to throw out the Qur'an. You need to throw out 90% of its contents. You also need to throw out the history of Islam, and you need to completely distract yourself from the Sirah." (Syrah is an Arabic term used for various biographies of Muhammad, from which historical information about his life and the early Islamic period is drawn. ")

    The West, Sina says, believes that extremism in Islam can be eliminated if several imams are reassured, or if Muslims are persuaded to accept the universal elements of their faith, but without resorting to extremism inherent in religious texts, but these hopes are based on an erroneous comparison of Islam and Christianity .

    "In the West, people are asking if Islam can undergo the same transformations as Christianity. This is an unfortunate parallel," says Sina. "In Christianity, it was not religion that needed reform, but the church, and the very preaching of Jesus was good."

    And, on the contrary, Sina continues, “in Islam it is not the society, not the community, but the religion that is bad. There is nothing like that in Islam,“ let the one who is without sin himself throw the first stone. ”Islam is full of hatred, and hatred is Muhammad himself In my book I prove that Muhammad was a madman and that Muslims, by praising him and his methods and his madness, become his heirs. "

    Read more.
    Now in the West there are many critics of Islam. And many former Muslims who rejected Islam in favor of Christianity and compared the concentration of their former religion on hatred and the doctrine of love and the forgiveness of their new religion. But if Wafa Sultan, Ibn Varak, Ayyan Hirschi Ali and a handful of other apostates demand that Muslims reject the negative aspects of their religion, the criticism of Sina is much stronger.

    "People need to somehow deny me, put me down in one way or another. I am either a Jew, or a Christian, or a Hindu. I am who people want to call me in order to discredit," says Sina (he carefully hides his real name because of the many threats.) "But they cannot ignore my questions."

    Sina does not have enough patience for those who believe that Islam can be tamed with the help of reason and mutual respect, or for those who have been intimidated by the masses of Muslims around the world.

    "Islam is the biggest hoax, the biggest lie," he says. "Yes, millions of people believe in it. But the truth remains true. People will gradually discern it. Trust me, there is no other answer. We will have to pay dearly until we understand. that there is only one solution - to undermine Islam at the root, to show Muslims that this religion does not come from Gd, and that Muhammad was a liar and a charlatan. "

    Sina knows that his direct approach can be "problematic." But he is confident that the strength of his arguments will prevail. “I am confident that over time I will be able to convince millions and millions of Muslims, and the foundations of Islam will fall,” he says.

    Faith Freedom International is already getting a lot of attention, he said. “My site is banned in Iran. It is banned in many parts of Pakistan. The list is not complete,” he continues. “Despite this, in two and a half years, I managed to attract over 10 million readers, and I receive letters from Muslims from all over the world. Muslims pay attention, I am sure Muslims understand that something is missing.

    If I could not convince people, I would not be so sure. But I see that the truth is valid. A lot of people write to me and they put clips on Youtobe; seven or eight years ago, we had a fierce debate. Now they are my biggest allies. There are so many people who saw the light after reading the FFI, and many of them are now working side-by-side with me, trying to help others figure out the truth.

    This is a way to fight evil. I don't want to kill the enemy. I want to win them over to my side as friends and allies. This is a real victory. Thus, we will prevail, because we will eliminate our enemy, and our enemy can be eliminated by eliminating his ignorance and hatred. Therefore, I believe in my work. That's why I consider myself an instrument of peace. "

    The modern problem of Islam is Wahhabism, this trend in Islam is considered sectarianism, this is the same as calling Christians, fifties, Jehovah's Witnesses, Adventists, etc.
