The Lessons of Beslan

The following video shows Russian President Vladimir Putin speaking last February to the Ministry of the Interior about the urgency of the fight against terrorism in Russia. He doesn’t mention JIM, but the examples he cites leave his audience in no doubt about what he’s describing.

Many thanks to Nina L for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


0:56   It’s necessary to cut short activities of extremist organizations in the most severe ways possible.
1:00   We have to react promptly at any signs of extremism — no matter the source.
1:05   For instance, we constantly shape conditions for political activities in our country.
1:11   A conscientious political environment is obligatory for healthy development of our society.
1:17   Political debates and social discussions can be sustained only within the boundaries of law and constitution.
1:25   This must be done without destroying the foundation of our government and our society. Provision of human rights and freedoms is not our only concern.
1:33   Our direct responsibility is to protect all of our citizens.
1:37   So, I’ll say this again — not a single extremist act is going to remain unpunished.
1:44   Let’s pay extra attention to the subject of fighting terrorism.
1:48   In 2012, 637 crimes pertaining to terroristic activity and 24 actual terroristic acts were registered within the system.
1:58   As you are already well-aware, criminals stop at nothing.
2:03   The policing organs’ task is to react immediately to any information about upcoming crimes.
2:08   Tragic lessons learnt from Nordost Theatre, Beslan school and Buynaksk taught us that any form of negligence and delayed action may result in big troubles.
2:16   Protecting a law-abiding entrepreneur from any unlawful infringements is not a mere bureaucratic priority.
2:24   I’d like for all of you to understand that’s it’s a matter of our national development.

  1. I wish America had a president who was either a Christian or a Jew or even a HINDU who loved his country….uh… I mean….LOVES AMERICA and is not kissing Saudi a$$!

  2. With the Saudi bought-and-paid for sharia compliant colonies emerging in the west Russia and Eastern European countries are becoming a beacon of hope.

  3. At least you’d know the Russians will not fall into the trap the West has …ever expanding halal colonies feeding on the wealth generated by colonialism and decent hard work. Abbott could learn a few things from Putin, but I fear he’s already indoctrinated with Multiculti Papist/Illuminati type views.

    You can see where his real allegiances lie just by some of his limp wristed pronoun cements to date…

    • There are other traps besides the ones which obsess you, Michaelmas. And if your comments don’t change their tone, you’ll be history, just like those poor Ukranians the Russian Soviets starved to death.

      “Multiculti Papist?? Your tarbrush is very wide, fella. Who is limp-wristed?? Oh, right, Putin and his lingerie. I forgot. The real man, wink wink nudge nudge.

      Please. Whatever “pronoun cements” are, please take them somewhere else and don’t forget to pick up those Iluminati papists on your way out the door.

      If you want the real skinny on Russia, talk to our commenter, Vinny. Or talk to anyone who managed to escape the place. Try Oleg at the People’s Cube – he can tell you all about Putin Wonder Woman.

      • How dare you. This site and it’s arcane spelling corrector is obviously to blame for “pronoun cements” as opposed to pronouncements! Half a moments thought would have told you that, mr snippy…

        Not a good advertisement for freedom of expression – are you only polite with those you agree with perhaps. If anyone needs to lift their tone is you sir.

        • That’s Ms. Snippy to you, boyo. And if you think I’m going to be polite in the face of your obsessive anti-Catholicism and global conspiracy theories, dream on.

          If you don’t stop what is becoming rabid anti-Catholicism, you’re going to be out of here. That old “freedom of expression” strawman fallacy doesn’t work here: this is a PRIVATE endeavor, funded by our donors and our savings. It is where we live and move and have our being. People who talk ugly about religious groups don’t stay long.

          Islam is the exception since we don’t buy the lie that it’s a religion. It’s a politicial, economic and judicial system that has brought great harm wherever it has conquered.
          oooh, dear. Just noticed your error. Never let it be said I didn’t teach you anything, me boy: you meant to say “this site and its arcane…”

          You see, Michaelmas, It’s is a contraction of it is. The possessive form of IT never uses that apostrophe you stuck there whilst in how-dare-you mode. Happens to the best of us; even we snippets have been known to err on occasion.

          • Hey Lucy
            Firstly you can blame your grammatical and spelling issues on your lousy spell corrector…it changes almost everything one types in ridiculous ways. Perhaps if your scary anonymous donors paid more of their private funding you might be able to afford a half decent site.

            And blimey, what a hoot to talk about cracking down on people who talk dirty about religions on THIS site..when the whole ” project” is to debase a religion. You don’t care one iota what someone says about Islam…any crazed bile that links some rabid nationalist movement to the mainstream muslim is fine by you….

            Why don’t you take off your blinkers…and admit you are peddling a very narrow world view and stop your puerile posturing every time someone doesn’t toe the line.

            Aw, you guessed. I’m Charlie Brown’s Lucy, and I rule this little world. Just ask the Baron…now there’s a real Charlie Brown for you, always being nice to people. Even to Lucy.

            Our “scary anonymous donors”?? Oh. You mean the Papists and the Mossad and the Masons? Right. Maybe you could ask the Mossad to pay us in something besides gefilte fish? They don’t listen to me.

            Yes, my narrow world view. But ’tis all my own and not constructed in the swampy wetlands of endless conspiracy theories where otherwise normal folk get sucked under.

            I like how you dig holes and when warned proceed to dig them deeper. I won’t bother with the rest of your remarks since there are so many others waiting in line to be flogged.

            Your sojourn with us was short, mercifully so.

            So long, Michaelmas…

          • This is untrue for the most part. The characterization of Islam as universally destructive in history is patently absurd. Here in Spain we have a complex and Long cultural connection with Islamic culture which has survived very dramatic changes and events. I don’t know why you are pretending there some formula for what a religion can bring. It seems you are the people who are just using events of the last ten twenty years as if they are the only way to view what has happened. But I can’t see how it can be blamed as a faith when we know what other cultures it has built. Including here.

            Perhaps it is the race thing here for you people and you are in America and have no contact with it except by hate for some things just happened. Perhaps you need longer to make up your mind not just shut it off.

          • I don’t get it. I thought we could all say whatever we liked on this site? Is that now under threat because of donors and we can’t be negative about religions other than Islam? I honestly didn’t expect that after reading this site for months.

            Does this Dymphna (dumb and pretentious name …like what alluding to ancient Greeks? Why?) run the show? She sounds a bit of a tyrant…and yet this site is about stopping tyranny?.of Islam?

            I’m confused. It’s the donors I bet.

            Since I can’t reply anywhere in proximity to your comment, here’s my response, right up next to you.

            Sure it’s the donors…Sheesh. The donors don’t like what we write, they quit giving. Simple equation there, Levantine, but an unwise bet on your part. You lose. But I do get that you’re confused. Usually a good idea to remain silent till the fog clears. A shame you didn’t remember that discretion is the better part of valor.

            Dumb Dymphna is not alluding to the Greeks, but the Baron did suggest this name and I liked it. See, SAINT Dymphna is the patron of lunatics. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

            And for the nth time, NO, you may not say whatever you like on this site. In fact, calling admin or another commenter names – e.g., “dumb” – is enough to get your words deleted. But yours is an exceptional case so I’m leaving your ummm…ideas up for all to see. If you really want to comment here, read the rules. They include maintaining civility, which you have obviously failed to do…

            Dear Mort,
            Christians in Muslim-occupied Spain were forced to
            1. pay the Jizyah
            2. wear the Zunnar
            3. were forbidden to carry swords
            4. were forbidden to ride horses
            5. were forbidden to interpret the Koran in their own way.

            I’m just not seeing the tolerance and good-will here.
            And in addition, your country proved a wonderful jump-off point for slave raiding in continental Europe.
            If Islam was so great, then why was the Reconquista launched and why did it last 700 years?

    • Jan Sobieski, a CATHOLIC, fought Islam.
      Urban II, a POPE, called for the First Crusade.
      Charles Martel, a CATHOLIC, fought Islam and stopped it dead in its tracks.
      Charlemagne, his son, a CATHOLIC, fought Islam in northern Spain.
      Ferdinand and Isabella, CATHOLICS, fought and drove the Muslims out of Spain!

      • Philip II, CATHOLIC, fought the Muslims at the Battle of Lepanto, 1571.
        The Martyrs of Otranto, all 413 of them were CATHOLICS who died for the CHRISTIAN faith.
        Catholics are Christians.
        Get over it.

        • Sounds like you need to get over your thing about Islam….

          A roll call of Papists who waged war on foreigners because they invaded Europe in some cases or believed in another religion in others… Proves nothing I can think of.

          How about some Papists who supported totalitarian dictators or installed corrupt and viciously oppressive about we do a list of them an see what conclusion we draw from that…

          Or those who have manipulated capital markets for centuries via Vatican-controlled banking institutions, or abused defenseless children…shall we come to a consensus on those as well as Charlemagne and the Martyrs of Otranto, or shall we just stick with your “good guys”?

          • You’re now on probation, Michaelmas. Consider yourself warned. You’ve been identified officially as a troll.

            One more comment about anything to do with religion or conspiracies and you.are.history.

            Vaya con Dios, dude.

          • Islam is profane.
            Mohammed is a false prophet.
            The Catholic and Orthodox churches as they exist in Antioch, Alexandria, Constantinople and Rome, now and forever, are holy. Mourn for the See in Jerusalem, the one that was destroyed by . . . ISLAM!

    • Putin is letting Russia be overrun with Muslim “guest workers” from Central Asia: low wage workets are popular in Russia, just like the West. And he foolishly pours money into the North Caucasus mostly Muslim areas. Why didn’t the Russians just cut those Muslim areas loose, instead if fighting two wars to keep Chechnya? The Muslim birth rate is much higher than the Christian, but Muslims from the Caucasus are free to go anywhere in Russia.

      Putin is just stupid as any Western pol.

  4. 2:16   “Protecting a law-abiding entrepreneur from any unlawful infringements is not a mere bureaucratic priority.”

    What does this mean?

  5. Putin’s speech is reminiscent of the arguments in the Federalist Papers, in which the powers and duties of the government are disputed. They never quite got over the real, and necessary, paradox that the government had to be strong enough to trample on the rights of the individual and state, if the government was strong enough to protect its borders and its integrity.

    Putin is correctly placing security as one of the inalienable duties of the government, also correctly placing it within the context of the freedom of political debate and freedom. We know, of course, that Putin is also involved in the imprisonment and assassination of political opponents, especially the wealthy ones.

    We can indeed learn from Putin, but we have to be choosy. We can pick up his resolution to provide security as the framework for free expression, while rejecting his maneuvers to maintain power at almost all costs.

    • Exactment, RonaldB. Putin’s shadow side is what sends people screaming from the room. But if you pick and choose, you can leave his murderous drive for power with him, and accept the highlights of his lectures to the West. God knows we need them right now.

      • Putin IS a strong leader but he can’t handle everything. He seems aware that Islam is a problem wherever it raises its ugly head, but he seems to be losing the battle against creeping Islamisation. I think he has had a big scare this year when facing down America/Washington over Syria. There was a point when it looked like
        the US was going to bomb [the heck] out of Damascus and Putin was VERY uncomfortable. He knows now that the US IS really the only super-power, and that with its present leader ANYTHING can happen.

    Tell that to the Christians of Syria, Iraq, North Africa and the Hindus and Buddhists of India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
    In lands where terraced agriculture fed all and left much for export, Islam turned the economy into a subsistence nightmare, as it remains today.
    Islam is destructive.
    Quite so.
    Ask the Bamyan Buddhas.
    Ask the Copts.
    Ask the Assyrians.
    Ask the Christians who used to live at Petra in Jordan.
    Ask the British and other Northern European victims of systematic rape by foreigners.

    • Correct 100%
      It’s not a religion at all but rather a demonic cult that via a sordid psychological mind control regime has programmed so called followers to wreak terror and destruction against all it opposes.

      They will not be happy until they have razed all civilisation and the world is dust. I refer you to Antioch, The Emperor Constantine and his duplicitous treaties with Heathens if you need any further evidence of their infamy.

    • Exactly, goethechosemercy.

      Those Muslims have caused all of those things and are raping systematically foreigners mostly Christians but also Copts.

      It used to be communists and Jews but now we know it’s Muslims doing it.

      Lucky there’s some Christians who stand up for the righteous and also call on the Apostates to stop messing up and return to their path.



      • I’m not saying that Muslims, in themselves, are evil. But the religion itself, from a Christian context, is profane and destructive; the observation is confirmed time and time again in the history of the West and Islam.
        We have allowed Muslims to live in our midst. We do not realize the destabilizing influence of their creed, nor have we chosen to see the warlike imperatives of Islam’s founder. These things, while most Muslims may not know of or care about them, are destabilizing in every interaction the Ummah has had with outsider communities, whether they be Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, whatever.
        We claim to love diversity.
        What we fail to see is that the only protection diversity has is diversity itself; and its chief enemy is the replacement nature of Islamic doctrine and aspiration.
        Vodun and the religion of the Andes are examples of an additive Christianity; in spite of the efforts of missionaries to replace indigenous religions, the result was not replacement but synthesis.
        Muslims will fight synthesis at every cost, even if it means the genocide of the “Jahili” community and world.
        Consider that.
        To abandon the West for Islam is truly to abandon any commitment to diversity.

        • Exactly. You have the nail on the head. Zionists have encouraged the Left to support multiculturalism and that had to a flood of Muslims who believe in a completely different god whatsoever.

          If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s religions which are profane. In my case I’m not too keen on the evangelical types, or Masons, but that’s just me.

          I’d rather a return to Latin Mass and. Pope who ruled a united Catholic Empire. Probably that would involve re educating Anglicans because most of them are treating the Holy Bible like some travel guide…

          • What we fail to see is that the only protection diversity has is diversity itself; and its chief enemy is the replacement nature of Islamic doctrine and aspiration.

        • If there’s anyone who needs getting over something, it would be “goeth chose mercy” who really needs to examine his conscience in the light of the tolerance our Bible speaks of.

          I’m not sure how you can claim to love diversity with a straight face, nor single out Islam as the only single-focused religion when we all know the worst excesses over time of our religion and culture, the political extremes Israel will sometimes embrace, rabid Hindu nationalism and chauvinism etc.

          It’s not just stone throwers in turbans who behave unreasonably…despite your quasi-theological assertions, most of which sound like slogans rather than history or sociology.

          • I’m not buying your false equivalency for a minute.
            There is no imperative for Jihad, conquest and the dispossession and genocide of the infidel in Christianity or Judaism.
            Nothing like it in Hinduism nor in Buddhism.

            “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!

            Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science (the science against which it had vainly struggled) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the
            civilisation of ancient Rome.”

            Yeah, you’re right.
            I haven’t gotten over it; neither did he.
            Thank God.

  7. Oh, and last of all, and given a BOX all its own, ask the people killed in the 9/11 attacks– carried out in the name of ISLAM!
    Beslan, a genocidal slaughter– carried out in the name of ISLAM!

    • Yes that proves it. Muslims are evil and Zionists are ok as long as they don’t encourage Islam via PC brigades.

      • Personally, I think Zionists are great. As I see it, they are where they should be.
        I’m not responsible for what they do, but I stand with Israel, even if you don’t.
