Internationally famous, in fact.

Recent events have shown that
Russia

too is being

torn apart
by the effects of mass immigration—and
this uncontrolled influx is jeopardizing
Russia
`s chances for
social and economic renewal.

In December 2010, a group of Muslim
immigrants from the North Caucasus region

murdered young Russian engineer Yegor Sviridov.

 Sviridov could
have been quickly forgotten, like countless victims of
other such attacks. However, he was a dedicated member
of the Moscow
professional soccer team


Spartak`s

fan club. Tens of thousands of
Spartak fans
across w:st="on">Russia held
memorial events. One of them culminated into an
ugly brawl with riot police in the center of Moscow

followed by a trashing of a subway station and attacks
on people who did not look Slavic.

In late January of this year, a
suicide bomber from the Muslim North Caucasus detonated
himself

in the crowded arrivals area
of Moscow`s Domodedovo
airport. At the time of writing, 35 people have died.
This was the latest in a series of

suicide attacks by Islamic terrorists from the North
Caucasus
, who have

waged jihad
since the early 1990s aiming to
establish an Islamic caliphate in that region. (It
includes Chechnya,
Dagestan, and other similarly volatile republics, but is
still part of the w:st="on">Russian Federation).
The fact that thousands of Chechens and other North
Caucasus immigrants live in
Moscow makes it possible for the terrorists to
easily obtain material support and allows them to
blend into
the Chechen diaspora in
Moscow
.

Almost all of the immigrants into
Russia

come from what Russians call the
“near abroad”
– the former
Soviet

Republics
that broke away
when the U.S.S.R collapsed. Most of the
“migrants”,
as they are known in
Russia
, are natives of the
independent Muslim republics of Central Asia— w:st="on">Tajikistan,

Kyrgyzstan
, and
Uzbekistan
. But others
come from the Muslim North Caucasus (just as

Puerto Rico produces Hispanic immigrants
although it
is

legally affiliated
with the
U.S.
).There is also
significant influx from the now-independent mostly
Christian republics of
Moldova
,

Georgia
, and

Armenia
. In addition, there are thousands of

foreign students
from

Arab
and

African
countries who come to Russia for a cheap and
high quality college education, a

carryover from the Soviet era
, when it was easier
for a Syrian or a

Cuban
to get a college degree in the USSR than a
native-born Soviet citizen. A large number of these
students end up staying in w:st="on">Russia, oftentimes

marrying Russian women
.

In 2007, Dmitry Sokolov-Mitrich, a
leading journalist at the mainstream

Izvestia
newspaper, wrote an explosive book about
the

deleterious impact of mass immigration
on Russian
society, especially the disproportionate crime rate of
the “migrants”
and their ethnically-based attacks on Russians. The
book`s provocative title, Ne Tadjikskie Devochki , Ne Chechenskie Malchiki




Non-Tajik Girls. Non-Chechen Boys
,[Read
online
] refers to the fact that while attacks on
non-Russian immigrants by Russians such as

the murder of a Tajik girl
and an

attack
on the teenage son of a
Chechen singer
result in the media`s attention and
condemnation while the much more numerous attacks by the
migrants against Russians receive little attention in
Russia and none abroad.

This of course should come as no
surprise to VDARE.com readers. After all, the Main
Stream Media is committed to the myth of the innocent
immigrant who is making an essential contribution, and
must be protected from those evil and intolerant people
whose country he blesses with his presence.

I have not been able to find
a single article in the Western MainStream Media about attacks by
migrants against Russians. But I read dozens of accounts
of migrants and foreign students being attacked by
Russians (usually characterized as
“skinheads”).

Sokolov-Mitrich`s book reads like a
Russian version of Michelle Malkin`s

Invasion
 
or
Thilo Sarrazin`s

Germany Abolishes Itself,
with its brutally
honest exposure of the ill effects of mass immigration.
The author starts off with several statistics. In 2005,
121 rape cases were filed in
Moscow

courts. In 79 (65%) of the cases, the suspects are
illegal immigrants from other former Soviet republics.
Similarly, 65% of Moscow
region`s

vori-v-zakone
(criminal bosses

akin to
the heads of

Mafia
families) hail from the
Caucasus
region.

The cases include murders, rapes,
and beatings. A listing of some examples shows how mass
immigration is tearing w:st="on">Russia apart:

  • On New Year`s night of
    2005, migrants from the North Caucasus stabbed to death
    a Russian Olympic gold medalist, the track cyclist

    Dmitri Nelyubin
    , in
    St. Petersburg
    . He went outside
    with a group of friends to set off fireworks and was
    accosted by the killers (who came to
    St. Petersburg
    to attend
    medical school).[VDARE.com
    note:

    If that sounds different from the kind of
    immigrant

    who stabs people to death

     in the US, it is.
    These are Caucasian Muslim immigrants—stupidity is not
    the problem here. Compare the various

    Muslim doctors
    who are terrorists in the

    West.
    ]
    When they were arrested years later, in their native
    republics whence they fled right after the murder, one
    of them told police that he stabbed the victim simply
    because he “looked
    like a skinhead”
    . Nelyubin left behind a two-month
    old son.[Four

  • In 2002, a gang of
    gypsies—Roma”
    in PC-speak
    , the European Union`s
    favorite oppressed minority—was arrested for killing and
    robbing elderly villagers
    in the Rostov region.
    The criminals used

    gypsy women with children
    to scout out their victims
    by going house to house and
    asking for charity.
    The men then broke into the
    houses and

    tortured
    the elderly inhabitants to force them to
    disclose where they kept their savings. One elderly
    woman was burned with an iron and later died and another
    was beaten to death with a fireplace poker.

Of course you won`t see this kind
of news in MSM sob stories about gypsies in
Europe
.

  • In 2004, an Azeri immigrant (Azeris
    are from Azerbaijan
    ) was arrested for robbing
    women at the train station in the central Russian
    city of
    Kostroma
    . Three of the
    victims were bludgeoned to death with a metal rod.
    Another Azeri immigrant was charged with assisting
    the killer but fled the city before he could be
    apprehended.

  • An especially grotesque
    crime took place in the city of
    Vladivostok
    . Chechen immigrant
    Ahmed Hadisov (“hadis”
    is the Chechen equivalent of the Koranic
    hadith)
    was a successful local businessman. He owned a café, a
    movie theater, and several car service companies. Ahmed
    drove a Japanese SUV and bought one for his young
    Russian girlfriend Tanya. But even though he took her
    out to restaurants and showered her with gifts, Hadisov
    refused to marry Tanya and forced her to have two
    abortions because his Chechen family would not accept
    her. When she refused to abort their third child after
    the doctors warned her she would be infertile (abortion-caused
    infertility
    is a major cause of

    Russia`s demographic collapse
    ), Hadisov`s sister
    repeatedly warned Tanya not to give birth or otherwise,
    Ahmed`s family would abduct the baby and take it to w:st="on">Chechnya. The
    local police did nothing when Tanya`s complained about
    the Chechens` threatening behavior. Ahmed then hired a
    local thug to kill her and their unborn baby. Tanya was
    stabbed in the abdomen but survived. The baby died a day
    later because of the mother`s blood loss. Before
    receiving just seven years for the crime, Ahmed Hadisov
    flew back home and brought back a Chechen bride approved
    by his family.

  • A quiet village in w:st="on">Russia`s Tver region was the scene
    of a horrific crime reminiscent of Dostoyevsky`s

    Crime and Punishment.
    Six Muscovites (four adults and two
    children) were found hacked to death with an axe in a
    car parked outside their vacation home in the village.
    The Raskolnikov copycat turned out to be the house`s
    caretaker, a twenty-year illegal immigrant from w:st="on">Uzbekistan who
    quickly confessed to the crime. As the case with other
    such crimes, this outrage was only reported in the local
    news.

  • As also was the attack by
    three Azeris on a Russian Orthodox priest in
    Moscow
    . Father Aleksandr Arsenyev
    was on the way to the grocery store in his cassock when
    he was accosted and severely beaten by the Azeris one
    whom yelled “I`m
    an Azeri! I`m a Muslim!”

  • Years later, in late
    2009, Father Daniil Sysoyev was shot to death inside his
    church, the Church of the Apostle Foma (Thomas) in
    Moscow. The son
    of a Russian father who was also a priest and a Tatar
    mother who converted from Islam, Fr. Sysoyev was
    dedicated to spreading Christianity among Muslim
    immigrants to
    Moscow

    and warned Russian women against intermarriage with
    Muslims. He received numerous death threats as well as
    criticism both from Russian Islamic leaders and
    pro-Muslim Russian Orthodox clergy.

  • In an incident that could
    be best characterized as a terrorist attack, in January
    2006 a young Chechen stabbed five security guards in a
    Moscow

    shopping mall while yelling
    “Russian pigs!”
    This attack, which was (surprise!) barely reported in
    the Russian media and totally ignored abroad is
    reminiscent of
    Elias Abuelazam`s serial stabbing attacks
    in the
    U.S. and the dozens of

    stabbing attacks
    by Palestinians in Israel.

  • In
    St. Petersburg
    , a Russian college
    student was severely beaten by a group of

    Egyptian
    students after he tried to prevent them
    from abducting a young girl outside a café.

  • In
    Moscow
    , three Nigerians were
    arrested for the rape of a local woman.

  • Also in
    Moscow
    , a thirty-nine year old

    Lebanese
    was arrested for a series of rapes in the
    lobbies of apartment buildings. Two of the victims were
    underage.

The response of the Russian
government was typically inadequate, even though the
acute nature of the crisis became evident after last
December`s riots. As

Wayne Allensworth
writes in the latest issue of


Chronicles
, [Russian
Migrants
,
February 2011]. US Vladimir Putin
“reserved his
harshest criticism”
for critics of the government,
not the real culprits.

This misdirected anger is
symptomatic of many Russian nationalists` response to
Islam. Instead of recognizing and confronting the
jihadist and mass immigration threat, they view Islam as
a religion indigenous to
Russia
. They are
actually more sympathetic to Muslims than to Catholics
and Protestants. Allensworth correctly points out
“many Russians loathe and envy the West (especially the w:st="on">United States)
more than they fear Islam”
. For these Russians,
Islam represents a healthy, noble, and traditional
society that they favorably compare to the declining
West and the demographically unraveling Russia.

To be sure, the Muslim societies of
North Caucasus and w:st="on">Central Asia are indeed virtually devoid of abortion,
substance abuse, elder neglect, out-of-wedlock births,
and other social pathologies of Russian and Western
societies. But Russians could
learn
from those societies
without letting its members
swamp Russian cities, thereby creating violent tension
and contributing to crime and corruption.

The other roadblock in the way of
effective management of w:st="on">Russia`s mass
immigration problem: the rampant corruption and
demoralization of the Russian police. Often, the
immigrants either bribe or beat the local police into
submission. In 2002, about 500 Vietnamese illegals
rioted for days in a central
Moscow market,
after the police`s more stringent measures against
counterfeit goods. [Moscow`s
Vietnamese vendors protest against confiscation of their
counterfeit wares
Pravda,
October 8, 2002]In the
Siberian city of Irkutsk, over a hundred illegals from
China rioted and threw stones at police after a cop
dared to ask one of them for identification. In Moscow,
police detectives conducting a drug bust at one of the
city`s marketplaces (notorious for widespread criminal
activity) were beaten and stabbed by a group of fifteen

Tajiks
who tried to free a Tajik drug dealer
arrested in the bust.

Further, the corrupt warlords in
charge of w:st="on">Russia`s North Caucasus
republics have browbeaten the central government into
submission on the immigration question. The worst of
these chieftains,

President Ramazan Kadyrov o
f
Chechnya, is notorious for
his arrogant manner towards
Moscow
. Once, he

came to see Putin dressed in a warm-up suit.
Another
time, he threatened to send in his special forces to the
north Russian region of Karelia
where mass brawls had broken out between the locals and
Chechen immigrants.

Ramazan Kadyrov`s older brother
Zelimkhan was arrested in 2004 in a hotel in the
southern Russian city of w:st="on">Kislovodsk for attempted rape and criminal
mischief. Prior to being arrested, he shot at security
guards and police. Zelimkhan Kadyrov

died
from

complications
of a car accident before the case was
brought to trial.

Since
Russia
`s

fragile rule in the North Caucasus
depends on
Kadyrov and his ilk, even Putin is wary of antagonizing
them by restricting their subjects` access to Russian
cities.

By closing its eyes to the problem
of mass immigration, the Russian government is
exacerbating the country`s economic and social woes. w:st="on">Russia`s economic growth will mean nothing if

jihadists can enter Russia
with impunity, Russian
police can be intimidated by gangs of illegal
immigrants, and corrupt chieftains can browbeat the
central government.

It would greatly benefit Russia if

Vladimir Putin
`s uncompromising defense of the
Russian national interest extended to the issue of mass
immigration—and he adopted the same tough approach to
Ramazan Kadyrov and other
“pro-Moscow”
warlords that he

did to the hapless Mikheil Saakashvili
of Georgia.
