The Orthodox Caliphate in Russia

The Orthodox Caliphate in Russia

Why Russia and the “Islamic State” are not really enemies but rivals

The Prime Minister of Türkiye Ahmet Davutoğlu, during his recent visit to Kyiv, called Russia a “terrorist organization.” These are his exact words. He did not compare Russia to a terrorist organization but called it a terrorist organization. He put Russia on a par with the “Islamic State” and other terrorists.

This is something that the West stubbornly refuses to notice. In no way does the Russian state differ from the “Islamic State.” Both groups hold civilians as hostages and control them through shameless propaganda and social handouts. Both groups attempt to expand their spheres of influence by force. Both groups are convinced that the entire world is against them and is trying to take possession of their resources. Both groups are ready to destroy civilians if this helps them achieve their goals. Both groups are obsessed with imperialist global ambitions — the “Islamic State” dreams of the “World Caliphate”; the Russian state of the “Russian World.” Both groups are trying to revive medieval clericalism: the “Islamic State” the Koranic one, the Russian state the Orthodox one of the imperial era.

Meanwhile, the “Islamic State” is prohibited in Russia, and the Russian Federation is one of the main enemies of the “Islamic State.” This is what always happens between real competitors.

The only thing that really differentiates the “Islamic State” from the Russian state is the presence of nuclear weapons in the latter — therefore, the ability to destroy humanity any day that a bad mood strikes the main Russian terrorist.

Bu if the West continues to flirt with the terrorists from the Russian state, nuclear weapons will inevitably turn up in the “Islamic State” as well.
