The list of countries affected by the Washington alchemists may be endless. Such is the role of the world gendarme that the United States has appropriated for itself - to punish those who are undesirable.
The example of Syria, where the Americans have been playing a double game for a long time, allegedly struggling with the troops of the “Islamic state” banned in Russia, is especially vivid, until our country, with the help of its VKS, brought order there. The most serious mistake the United States is making is to abandon the real anti-terrorism coalition.
Apparently, Barack Obama arrogantly believes that the militants or the same refugees will never reach the shores of America, but will endlessly destabilize the old Europe. But we must not forget that the IG sets itself the goal of creating a world caliphate - a planetary Islamic state. Although, if we turn to the point, I would call it anti-Islamic. It has nothing to do with true Islam. This is Islamism, the essence of which is a perverted ideology and freely interpreted Sharia laws that can justify any crime.
In Syria, destroyed more than two thousand militants IG - immigrants from Russia. But they managed to return somehow and today, having hidden, they are waiting only for a good moment for a terrorist attack.
Few people know, but dozens of high schools and madrasas funded by Turkey are operating in our country. What ideology they impose, you can guess. When the Soviet Union collapsed, the mass of young people from the Muslim republics of Russia, under the pretext of obtaining religious knowledge, rushed to Jordan, KSA, Turkey to get an education. What is Islam in Saudi Arabia? This is a religion elevated to the rank of state policy. Therefore, the priest prepared there carries the ideological matrix that he was taught. Returning to Russia, he reads sermons in Arabic, which can contain anything.
Here, I think, a big mistake was made. The state should immediately create theological faculties in national universities, begin to teach their clergy. Grow them here, not recruit from abroad. And now we need to make a decision on some of our so-called educational institutions as soon as possible. It is advisable to make an inventory of the status of Islamic schools and madrasas in Russia with the participation of representatives of the Federal Agency for Nationalities Affairs. Introduce a regular attestation of the imams for the conformity of their sermons to the true Islam and continue to train clergymen only within the country. To establish legislatively in general educational institutions the study of the foundations of religion: Orthodoxy, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism ...
All this will create an appropriate social base on which the government will be able to rely, and therefore, will prevent our youth from slipping into radicalism.
For example, for a long time I could not understand why mufties rarely appear on television. After all, the screen word against violence, against terror could be very effective. As it turned out, many simply feared the reaction of radicals. And not without reason. According to some reports, several dozen pious servants of Islam died in the country. Radicals behaved very aggressively. So it was in Dagestan, Chechnya, Tatarstan ... So, in fact, we voluntarily gave this important site to the mercy of homegrown broadcasters and poorly educated people.
In Europe, the understanding that the state cannot be removed from the religious life of society has come only after the act of terrorism in the editorial offices of the French newspaper Charly, which Muslims themselves condemned. The policy of non-intervention, and in fact conniving, is extremely dangerous.
And the last. Recently met with Talgat Tajuddin, chairman of the Central Spiritual Board of Muslims of Russia. In a conversation with me, he agreed that this problem should never be ignored. On the contrary, it is necessary to conduct a balanced, thorough discussion with believers, all citizens about the role of religious teachings in the life of society, the responsibility of everyone for their statements, actions, especially among young people. Actively work with parishioners, imams. The Koran, by the way, prescribes each Muslim to protect his faith from actions and words that cause damage.
So, the struggle for its purity must be continued at all levels and in all social groups of our country’s population.
