Starting January 24, many articles in international media begin with
"terrorist attack in Moscow’s airport
Domodedovo”, after the title there are some lengthy arguments about unavailability
of Russian authority to resist organized crime and, as a result need for Russia to "let Caucasus
go”. Especially, touches the refrain lines about innocent victims, though everyone
knows who is "guilty”, even if culprits are known who has right to lynch.
At first glance, written in these articles correspond to the
reality: the power in Russia
is still unable to cope with terror; Caucasus,
to be frank, is in flame of radical religious ideology and –consequently– terror
acts and people are dying without fault. Still the most terrible, people will
continue to die, because, inter alia, and of these above mentioned articles. For
such is the nature of terror.
Terror - is not a diversion, and aftermath of terrorist attack doesn’t
end with the end of act of terror. If sabotage act is directed toward the weakening
of state’s military power and its action ends with the very act of sabotage,
then the value of terrorist attack prolonged in time and aimed to change population’s
political views of the state underwent the terrorist attack. In this sense,
publications "relishing” the terror act voluntarily or involuntarily extend the
period of panic and confusion (not to speak - fear) among the population that completely
consistent with terrorists goal. These articles contribute to the fact that
then framed by journalists as "authority’s unavailability to resist the
Of course, I don’t appeal to suppress
terrorist attacks – it’s impossible to do in any case – there is another issue:
methods and form of information’s presentation. Not allowed to hurt human’s psyche
that already got psychological blow. Erroneous, (to put it mildly) to spread the
fear in population and contribute terrorists in achieving their goal. Don’t forget
that word "terror” is translated as "fear”, "horror”. Not allowed to inspire
terrorists sitting in front of TV set and enjoying the effect of their crime.
Similar approach to terrorist attack contributes new acts,
prevents the study of terrorist attacks nature, and doesn’t let correctly
understand causes and terrorists’ goals. There appear problems with
identification and neutralization of terrorist organizations, and the elimination
of causes generating attacks. The fight against terrorism must be complex, and loss
of one component can negate the entire work.
Let’s emphasize, intentional distortion of "terror” concept prevents
the fight against terror. Here we talk about intentional distortion of this
concept, when acts of sabotage are "confused” with terrorist attacks. Meanwhile acts
of sabotage aimed on weakening of enemy’s military power, and its action ends
simultaneously with the diversion. Thus, Kurdish rebels in Turkey destructing
Turkish soldiers and military equipment commit acts of sabotage, no matter how hard
state’s government presents them to the world as terrorist attacks. However,
note that journalists’ poor training and lack of knowledge of basic terms helps
and some other countries to impose consumers of their propaganda in confusion
of enemies’ methods and tools.
We need to understand that terrorist attacks are intended to intimidate
population, forcing it to influence state policy. Terrorists don’t hesitate to
kill innocent civilians; on contrary, civilian population is their main target,
since death of civilians: children, patients gets the loudest response in the
community. Terrorists don’t hide their vile faces, believing that it frightens
and paralyzes spectator’s will. That is why almost after every bloody terrorist
attack organization that was behind the terrorist announces about its involvement
in the terrorist attack, often showing photograph or videotape of the suicide
The fight against terrorism, eradication of this mankind evil,
must be complex and universal, but it should not be limited by simple destruction
of executors and even customers. First of all, fight against terrorism requires
liquidation of its base - terror ideology. Almost impossible to intimidate
death the self-destroyer. Ideology of "shahid”-killer actively grown in radical
society and Islam must be destroyed. Should be liquidated "shahid” concept toward
bloody and pitiless killers. Environment where "shahids” nurtured should be
deprived of ideological and political support. Today we are forced to observe
that some states raised "shahids” to the rank of state policy.
In January 1990, throughout Azerbaijan’s capital began mass killings
and pogroms of Armenians and the rest of Christian population: Russians,
Ukrainians… Hundreds of people were killed. Then, miraculously survived
eyewitnesses told chilling stories about inhuman cruelty of beastly crowd consisting
of hundreds of thousands people. USSR KGB Chairman V. Kruchkov on USSR Supreme
Soviet session told that during these days in Baku were recorded even cases of cannibalism,
when killers of defenseless people roasted and ate their flesh.
January 20, Soviet troops entered Baku in order to stop the orgy of mass
murders; they were encountered by fierce resistance. In course of overcoming
barricades and liquidation of resistance centers were destroyed approximately
one hundred killers and thugs. At the same time, during first day of troop’s entry
into Baku, pogrom-makers
killed 28 soldiers, about hundred servicemen were injured. It would seem that
killers and cannibals had to be given to anathema, should be covered with
eternal disgrace. But it only seemed like that.
Azerbaijan went by the other way. It
went by glorifying criminals, killers and thugs. Killers and cannibals were
buried in mass grave and this construction was called…the "Lane of Shahids”.
Today this "lane” is huge and pompous construction, annually visited by tens
and hundreds of thousand people. All official guests of Azerbaijan Republic
are forced to visit the "Lane of Shahids”. For example, all three presidents of
put flowers on the graves of killers.
No doubts: glorification of "shahids” - promotes new generation of
killers and there is no coincidence in confession of Chairman of the National Security Ministry of Azerbaijan
Eldar Makhmudov about the fact that radical Islamic groups recruit Azeri girls in
"shahid”-killers. His deputy, Sulhaddin Akper commenting to the "Echo” newspaper
message about destruction in Russia terrorist, citizen of Azerbaijan, stated: "Today,
there are already radical (Islamic - L.M.-Sh) organizations recruiting young
people in Azerbaijan”. Further he reported: "if we’ll compare situations with
1992-1993, then today the number of radical (Islamic - L.M.-Sh.) religious structures in Azerbaijan has
increased, but they don’t advertise themselves, yet”.
Islamic extremist movements are well aware about places where
created fertile soil for recruitment of bloody suicide killers. There is no
accident in the fact that many "shahid”- women killers who blew themselves in Russia’s crowded places got "instructions” in Azerbaijan.
Thus, today not a lot of people in Russia
know that terrorist - killers Zara Murtazaliev and Zulihan Elihadzhiev learned
to kill Russian people in Azerbaijan.
From the indictment in Zara Murtazaliev’s case.
"Zara Murtazaliev as an active member of band formation fighting
with federal forces being trained in the camp of suicide terrorists near Baku, Azerbaijan
Republic, in September 2003 arrived into Moscow
for the organization of terrorist acts…”
Personal diary of Zulihan Elihadzhiev, suicide-killer who blew
herself and people around her in the queue at the box office at a rock festival
in Tushino, was kept; there she described her trip to Baku with her stepbrother Zhage, Zulihan and
Zhage were in criminal liaison. In Baku
lover-brother, with assistance of other Azeri criminals Gasan and Yusuf recruited Zulihan in suicide-killer.
Julia Yuzik, author of "Brides of Allah” and recognized expert on
suicide-women terrorists wrote in her book: "Baku, Azerbaijan
– the center of everything. It’s a center of wahhabism, center of conceptual training
of Chechen women terrorists; it’s also a center of financing from abroad. I
know it from people I talked to during this entire year – very different
people, from "both sides”.
In 2010 the largest and the most authoritative international
organization to fight with financial abuses (FATF) included Azerbaijan in
the limited list of countries that finance terrorism. According to the numerous
reports of international organizations and US State Department Azerbaijan is
the major transit point for drug trafficking into Russia
and Europe, it’s confirmed by recently
published documents on WikiLeaks site. According to UN data, over the past 4
years the volume of smuggling heroin through the territory of Azerbaijan
has increased dramatically. Does anyone doubt the fact that the significant portion
of the profit from the transit and grown in Azerbaijan drugs consumed for
In late February of the last year Russian FSB officers inspected
the network of stores "Sunnah”, selling religious literature in Dagestan Republic. During inspections was
number of literature promoting Wahhabism. Did they focus their attention on the fact
that "Sunnah” stores selling the "literature” encouraging terrorism are the
property of Azerbaijan’s
Islamic leader sheik ul-Islam haji Allah Shukur Haji Zade?
June last year in Nizhniy Novgorod was arrested the leader of an underground
extremist terrorist organization "Nurdzhular” ("Nur” - L.M.-Sh.) citizen of Azerbaijan
Ilham Islamly. In belonging him apartment was found large number of extremist
literature, purchased in "Sunnah” stores whose owner is Azerbaijani sheik.
there are myriads of Azeri terrorists. Some of their names are associated with
many victims among civilians. Sadulla Cheruglanov, Nabi Abiev, Eldar Heydarov, Ilgar Mollachiyev, helped the
transit into Russia for more
than thirty terrorists from Azerbaijan (anyone can fill this
list with dozens of names, indicated on numerous Azeri Islamists sites). Symptomatic,
that during terrorist attack in the house of culture on Dubrovka in Moscow,
when many spectators of musical "North-East” were killed, one of terrorist holding
hostages called the editorial office of Azerbaijani newspaper "Echo”, that gladly granted him the
newspaper stripe for the "interview”.
Strictly speaking, it couldn’t be another way. Azerbaijan is
the first state in the world officially recourse to "services” of terrorist
organizations in 1991-94. Thousands of mujahedeen from Afghanistan, Turkey,
Chechnya, Arab countries -
were called to "help” in Azerbaijan’s
criminal aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh
leadership in those years repeatedly appealed to the world community to pay
attention to the nascent in Azerbaijan
criminal international terrorist community. All these appeals were vain. The
danger of that formed world terrorist movement of Islamic radicals under the patronage
of President of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev understood only after the terrifying terrorist
attacks in USA, Russia, England, Spain, Kenya, Tanzania, Indonesia, Iraq,
Not everyone remembers today that most blood thirsty terrorists:
Basayev, Gela, Arbiev, Khattab, Raduyev took
their "baptism of fire” in Azerbaijan…
Few people remember that fax order of Osama bin Laden about terrorist attacks against US embassy was from Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan
prefers to forget it all. Not to remember, but actively "educate” "shahid”
Three days before the
terrorist attack in Domodedovo,
January 20 at the state level. Over a hundred thousand people led by President
and Republic’s management visited the "Lane of Shahids”. All day long
television showed footage of Soviet troops enter Baku,
all day long were quoted curses in address of Russian people that associated in
Soviet troops. Radicals bringing flower to "shahids”- killers vowed to "revenge”.
Three days later there was a terrorist attack. Was it occasional temporary coincidence?
