about human beings.
From Jisbond's post:
"We are caught between a rock and a hard place," admitted the deputy governor of one of Chechnya's municipalities, who did not want to be named. "The Russians don't trust us as they think we collaborate with the guerrillas. On the other hand, the Wahhabis are after us. As far as they are concerned, we are all traitors, or kafir [Arabic for apostate]."

Response:
This helps me understand something.

Iraq is not a Wahhabi state. Osama Bin Laden, from Saudi Arabia, is a Wahhabist. Joseph Stalin, a hero of Saddam Hussein, deported
all the Chechen People to Siberia.
So Chechnya would only be able to rely on
Outsiders and more modern, liberal Muslims -- for rescue.
