NBC calls it “Russia’s dirty little secret.” So I guess trying to protect your nation from Islamic terrorism which has included several suicide bombings, bus and train station bombings by Muslims in the recent past is something dirty? No wonder NBC ratings suck.
NBC News A four-minute video posted by an ally of al Qaeda likens the Olympics of Russian President Vladimir Putin to those held under Adolf Hitler in 1936, and warns again of terror at the upcoming Sochi Games. “Satan is with you, and he will leave you at the most inopportune moment,” says the speaker in the video, whose face is blurred. “And that moment will be coming soon.”
The video was posted earlier this month on a jihadist website but gained traction Friday, two weeks before the opening ceremony. It shows a militant, “Amin Abu Usama,” mocking how Russians have become terrified of “so-called Muslim extremists.”
The games will take place several hundred miles from the North Caucasus region, where Islamic militants are waging a campaign against Putin — and would love to humiliate the Russian leader during his most prominent moment on the international stage.
The video was recorded by the Islamic Jihad Union, an al Qaeda ally based near the Afghan-Pakistani border. It serves as an umbrella group for fighters from the Caucasus, Turkey and beyond, and has been involved in plots in Uzbekistan and Germany. The title, in Russian, translates to something close to “In the Run-Up to the Demon Olympics 2014.”
