Apparently, such features of sea creatures at one time and caused the corresponding name to receive the information portal. Portal from the category of those who are called ultraliberal "beacons of democracy." Speech about the portal Meduzacreated by the former chief editor Lenta.ru Galina Timchenko in October 2014, with headquarters in Latvia. Initially, as the main sponsor of the portal, Mr. Khodorkovsky was almost presented, but then they announced that instead of MBH some “non-public faces” would provide financial support to this online media. Well, non-public, so non-public - for God's sake. It is noteworthy that these non-public people clearly have an ineradicable desire to sponsor the publication of materials, most often of frankly provocative anti-Russian persuasion. At one time, the portal published an article stating that Kazakhstan "has the potential" to create an "Ust-Kamenogorsk People's Republic" of the type of DNR and LNR, which caused (for obvious reasons) a negative reaction from our neighbors, Medusa ) blocked. The author of the material claimed that he, they said, did not correctly understand that it was not a provocation, but was just an ordinary journalistic investigation, but, they say, did not help.
Today, against the background of a slightly calmer situation in the Donbas, the 24-eyed Internet portal publishes other “investigative journalism” - already on the Syrian issue and the general situation in the Middle East. In this connection, two materials attract attention, one of which is a continuation of the other. The first material (from October 5) - "In Saudi Arabia, called for jihad against Russia" with reference to HAARETZ (which in turn referred to Reuters); the second material (from 9 of October) - “Jihad: what you need to know about it. The main questions and accessible answers about the "holy war" (reports that the material was prepared with the participation of the High School of Economics Sophia Ragozina).
The first material tells how 53 from Saudi "spiritual organizations" called for a "holy war" against Russia, Syria and Iran, comparing the Russian military operation with the actions of the USSR in Afghanistan. Only somewhere in the middle of the material it is mentioned that these 53 "confessor" have nothing to do with pro-government Saudi organizations, and as a result, given the name of the material proposed by Medusa, the reader could easily get the impression that he called on Jihad against Russia almost official Riyadh. They say that Moscow finished with its "militarism" ...
At the end of the material, it is added that the “holy war” was also announced to us by “dozens of Syrian groups”. The following information is added as a comment from the portal:
Russia entered into armed conflict in Syria on September 30, when aviation The Russian Air Force began to strike at targets in this country.
The term “goals in this country” looks clearly streamlined. Not by terrorist groups, not by extremists, but precisely by certain goals, which in itself speaks of some understatement and ambiguity, which “partners” hint at, as it were. They say that they are beating there for some purposes, they say that by terrorists, and suddenly there is a peaceful and deeply moderate Syrian opposition, which “was simply by definition forced to declare jihad of Russia”.
And further in the “Medusa” material the lecturer of the HSE Ms. Ragozina explains what “jihad” is, and that, in principle, in Russia it is perceived not quite correctly ... From material:
Is jihad always related to violence?
HSE lecturer answers:
Not always, but the Qur'an states that every Muslim must be ready to defend with weapons your faith.
That is, an expert from the Higher School of Economics, answering the question of “Medusa”, which itself contained the direction for just such an answer, states that the “jihad” declared by Russia is - well, it’s like a “holy war”, but how can to be completely even without violence ... It is also reported there that perhaps it was meant “jihad against its weaknesses and laziness” - well, those very “non-governmental confessors” of Syria called those “moderate oppositionists” who even visited the toilet with AKM back and grenade in the belt, to the "fight against his laziness." Idyllic pictures are drawn, when the crowd of bearded thugs (oh, forgive, of course, moderate oppositionists) at the word "jihad" starts not to cut the head, but to start working, rebuild a destroyed country, build kindergartens, schools and hospitals, exterminating in itself is laziness ...
Another remarkable question "Jellyfish" with a clear claim to hope:
Can Russian Muslims declare jihad to the Russian authorities? (Apparently, to combat laziness and weakness - author's note)
In theory, they can, if there are authorities among them who are ready to issue a fatwa calling for a fight against the Russian state.
That is, the expert in medusnuyu correctly assessed the question and in the medusnous way correctly answered it, as if still making it clear what Russian Muslims should undertake in order to declare jihad to Moscow.
In this regard, the question arises: how should this material be regarded? Is this the interpretation of a representative of the HSE canons of Islam or are quite frank attempts by the mass media to activate new forces, ready for destructive actions against Russia, covering all this as if informing the population about Islamic values?
