Russia’s Mega-Mosque Problem

My CBN News colleague George Thomas recently spent time on the ground in Moscow, where he put together a typically outstanding report on the push by Muslims in Moscow to build huge mosques.

It will be interesting to see how Putin, Medvedev and Co. react. On one hand, they are locked in a continuing struggle against Islamic jihadists from neighboring Chechnya.

Yet on the other hand, they have fully embraced the jihadist mad mullahs of Iran, assisting them with their nuclear program and providing them with advanced weaponry.

It’s a schizophrenic approach, to say the least. Click on the viewer below to watch George’s report.
