Worldwide Jihad in Russia

Two female suicide bombers killed at least 40 people on packed Moscow subway trains on Monday, stirring fears of a broader campaign in Russia’s heartland by Islamists from the North Caucasus.

Witnesses described panic at two central Moscow stations after the blasts, with morning commuters falling over each other in dense smoke and dust as they tried to escape the worst attack on the Russian capital in six years. Sixty-four others were injured, many gravely, and officials said the death toll could rise. Russia’s top security official said the bombs were filled with bolts and iron rods.

The chief of the FSB, the main successor to the Soviet-era KGB, said: “Body parts belonging to two female suicide bombers were found … and according to initial data, these persons are linked to the North Caucasus.”

“Everyone was screaming. There was a stampede at the doors. I saw one woman holding a child and pleading with people to let her through, but it was impossible.”

“They are simply beasts,” Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said of the bombers after laying a bouquet of red roses on the platform of one of the metro stations. – “We will find and destroy them all.”

Surveillance camera footage posted on the Internet showed several motionless bodies lying on the floor or slumped against the wall in Lubyanka station lobby and emergency workers crouched over victims, trying to treat them.

The current death toll makes it the worst attack on Moscow since February 2004, when a suicide bombing killed at least 39 people and wounded more than 100 on a metro train.

Chechen rebels were blamed for that attack. Rebel leader Doku Umarov, fighting for an Islamic emirate embracing the whole region, vowed last month to take the war to Russian cities. – “Blood will no longer be limited to our (Caucasus) cities and towns. The war is coming to their cities,” the Chechen rebel leader said in an interview on an Islamist website. The website is updated by Muslim rebels seeking to create their own state in the Chechnya region.

The Chechen rebellion began in the 1990s as a largely ethnic nationalist movement, fired by a sense of injustice over the 1940s transportation of Chechens to Central Asia, with enormous loss of life, by dictator Josef Stalin. Largely since the second war, Russian officials say, Islamic militants from outside Russia have joined the campaign, lending it a new intensity.

Chechen terrorists have been responsible for previous mass casualty attacks in Russia, including a 2002 attack on a Moscow theater and the 2004 Beslan school massacre, in which terrorists took more than 1,100 people – including over 770 schoolchildren – hostage, ultimately killing hundreds.

Though the majority of suicide bombers have been male, female suicide bombers have carried out a number of attacks since 1985. Some militant organizations have used women to carry out suicide bombings because they draw less suspicion than men and go through less rigorous security checks. For example: while a man can be checked to see if he’s carrying an explosive belt by simply lifting his shirt, ordering a woman is much less acceptable, particularly in the Islamic world. Israeli security procedures practice is that a suspected woman is to be checked by a female soldier in a screened off area.

British spy satellites have intercepted terrorist communications from Pakistan and Yemen, talking about women suicide bombers getting explosives put inside breast implants.

 The British Intel Service reported that several plastic surgeons, who were trained in some of London’s best hospitals, have returned to their home countries to perform the surgeries. – Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose said the industry’s technology makes the bombs possible and easy. – It’s unknown how well full-body scanners would detect explosives inside implants.

 The Quran explicitly talks about female virgins with large eyes as rewards for men. On the contrary there is not a single “women will get guys as a reward” verse. – I wonder if these female suicide-bombers are all Lesbians?
