UFA. April 3 (Interfax) - The Central Islamic Department of
Moslems of Holy Russia (the former Central Moslem Department
of Russia and CIS European Nations) has declared a jihad
against the United States, Russian Supreme Mufti Talgat
Tadzhuddin told Interfax on Thursday.
This is the second resolution announcing a jihad against a
country in Russian history over the last hundred years,
Tadzhuddin said. Russian Moslems announced a jihad for the
first time against Germany in 1941, Tadzhuddin said.
"Russian Moslems have levers of efficient influence on the
United States. For instance, we will raise donations for a
fund, and use the money to buy armaments for fighting America
and food for the people of Iraq," Tadzhuddin said.
He did not say which particular forms the jihad would take,
but noted that results of the holy war might be expected two
to three days from now. [RU EUROPE EEU EMRG US IQ VIO AER REL]
