ISIS is back and its thirsty for Russian blood

>Russia is a familiar enemy for Sunni jihadists and has found itself in the crosshairs of IS-K for several reasons. According to IS-K, Moscow’s hands are covered in Muslim blood, especially in Afghanistan, where the legacy of the decade-long Soviet-Afghan War still looms large.
>Further, the Russian military’s brutal tactics in multiple Chechen wars and its scorched-earth counterinsurgency campaign in the Caucasus mean that there is no love lost for Russia. The Kremlin’s continued assistance to notorious dictator Bashar al-Assad in Syria, where Russian air support targeted Sunni strongholds during the long-running civil war, cements Russia’s image as a worthwhile enemy to focus on. Taken together, these factors make Russia an attractive target for IS-K
>The most recent piece of propaganda issued by IS-K on the subject was published in issue 24 of Voice of Khurasan on April 2. The article, “A Message from the Heart to our Muslim Brothers in Ukraine,” is allegedly written by an anonymous IS-K supporter living in Europe.

So what do you think /k/? Would Russia be able to withstand an insurgency along with their war in Ukraine? Or will Russia become the glorious caliphate which ISIS wishes to create?

    Russia is being very careful to keep the Muslims happy for multiple reasons

    >Not alienating their Muslim cannon fodder and causing Chechnya 3.0
    >Keeping support from the Arab, Persian, Indian, and African Muslims
    >Painting the Ukrainians as white supremacists who hate Muslims
    >Keeping Israel from openly backing Ukraine with threats of closing airspace in favor of Syria

      As a Muslim who lived in Iraq most of his life, I’m sorry to admit that a frickton, perhaps the majority, of Muslims unironically love Russia. Bush really buck broke a lot of Muslims into hating everything western.

        >Russia didnt do jack shit against ISIS, because they created them. ISIS was ment to bring trouble to Iraq and with that to the US, binding their resources and focus. Think about it, how could ISIS take over so Iraq so quick and so effective, when not with support and intel from Russia? It is unclear if they actually had Syria in mind or not, but sure as hell used them well there. Without ISIS it would have been rebels vs Assad, kurds and whole east Syria would have gone against Assad too, but with ISIS added to the play, everything changed. ISIS had taken over a lot of areas that were anti Assad and had oil refineries and they made no secret about that they would take over everyone giving the chance. They divided the anti Assad coaltions and gave Russia an exuse to expand in Syria militarily, while actually bombing rebels instead, so the last moderates leave the groups and radicals take over. Also it stopped the pipeline from Quartar and halted the one from Iran for many years, so Russia can stay the big gas seller in Europe.

            Cope. Russia and Assad created ISIS as a pretext to establish a military presence in Syria at a time when the whole world was supporting democratic reforms in Syria. There is little disagreement that the responsibility for ISIS’s war crimes lays squarely on Russia.

    ISIS being flip-flopping contradictory schizo as usual, but at least somebody in the ISK branch at least has done SOME historical reading. They've also published critiques against China but ironically only focused on China *after* the IEA came to power in Afghanistan, and ISIS didn't seem to care nearly as much in the 2010s.

    In March 2022, not long after the Ukraine War started ISIS central in their newsletter stated that the Ukraine War has nothing to do with Muslims and they and their supporters rebuked anyone who partook in it on either side. Of course, this is was completely moronic and willingly ignored the native Muslim population living in Ukraine including the Crimean Tatars, who were genocided by Russia in the 1770s and 1780s and by the USSR in the 1940s. Southern and Eastern Ukraine and adjacent Western Russia was the Crimean Khanate.
    Ever since the Russian Federation annexed the Crimean peninsula in 2014, the Crimean Tatars have been oppressed and most of the political prisoners have been from them. There have also been many North Caucasians operating in Ukraine as a means to weaken Russia which helps their own causes at home.

      >According to IS-K, Moscow’s hands are covered in Muslim blood, especially in Afghanistan, where the legacy of the decade-long Soviet-Afghan War still looms large.
      Russia's biggest bloodshed against Muslims isn't even Afghanistan. It's their genocide of the Circassian and Abazin (and the smaller Ubykh and Arshtin) peoples in the Northwest Caucasus in the mid 1800s where they killed half the population and exiled most of the rest—most of whom fled to Turkey, many to the Levant and some to Iran. The Ubykh and Arshtin were rended extinct.
      Russia also wiped out the Muslims of the Qasim Khanate, Nogay Khanate and Sibir Khanate and most of the Astrakhan Khanate during the Early Modern Age. This is what led to the rise of the Russian Empire.

      The USSR wiped out half the Volga Tatar (Tatarstan and Astrakhan) and Kazakh populations in the 1920s and 1930s through starvation and forced labor in multiple famines. Crimean Tatars were also affected in the Ukrainian famine.
      Under Stalin they also ethnically cleansed the North Caucasus in the 1940s forcefully deporting most of the population (excluding Dagestan) to Central Asia and Siberia, most of whom were only allowed to return after Stalin's death. However, the Laz people of the South Caucasus and the Crimean Tatars, who were also targeted, were never allowed back by the USSR. Many of the remaining Crimean Tatars of Ukraine today had to slowly come back through a lot of navigation because they weren't directly allowed back en masse. Russia brought in ethnic Germans and East Slavs in the 1700s and 1800s to demographically replace the locals and natives along the Black Sea coast and Volga Delta regions. Some of the Germans ended up migrating abroad later on, others left after WW1, WW2 and the Cold War.

        The vast majority of Volga Germans were expelled to Siberia when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in 1941.

    The reason why the US and UK had succeeded at creating ISIS in the first place was a Sunni coalition against Assad. Now that Assad had won the war and the Gulf states are re-aligning themselves with China and Russia, there's just no widespread support for another wahhabi pet project like that anymore. Sorry to burst your bubble, butt you'll have to make due with hohols.
