Estonia gains additional threats to already long established promises of attack from Moscow – radical Muslims

The new threats echo those that have made Western governments nervous for some time: namely the departure of extremists/terrorists to Syria for training and their return to their country of residence.

At the presentation of Kapo’s (Estonian Security Police) annual report, Arnold Sinisalu, the agency’s director general said that for the moment Kapo can only confirm that two men from Estonia have left to fight in the Syrian assaults. One of the two is Abdurrahman Sazanakov, who, before leaving for Syria was a regular visitor of the Islamic centre on Keevis Street in Tallinn…

…The new trademark is that of the single fanatic and this is a serious concern for all European Union security services. Sinisalu added that Estonia is still very distant from any crisis situation. “We don’t see that our Islamic community has undergone any changes that would indicate its members are a threat to Estonia. But the community’s leaders have not directed sufficient attention to the fact that some individuals have been attracted by extremist themes.

Asked about the number of men who have gone to Ukraine to participate in fighting, Sinisalu answered that this is still under investigation…

…The immigration of Muslims to Estonia has been steadily increasing and the visitations of representatives from Islamic organization and Mosques abroad rose to a record high to over 20. The Muslim Brotherhood, who have been connected to terrorist acts in the Middle East, have tried to make contact with Estonian Muslim groups. They have a similar plan as ISIL – to form a wide caliphate from the merging of Muslim countries in the Mideast, where strict Muslim law could be enforced.

The Report describes the activities of the Moslem community in Estonia to be chaotic…

…Illegal immigrants of the Moslem faith has steadily grown over the years. In this respect the Kapo report states that co-operation with Russian border control is very frustrating. Even illegals who have made their way into Estonian, but have legitimate personal and travel documents have been refused entry by Russia, the country from which they came. Moscow ignores a bilateral agreement, under which Russia has promised to accept such individuals…

  • I believe Cuba has done some things similar to this.

    I’ve read up a fair bit about Estonia. Although a small country, it is one the great post-Soviet success stories with solid free-market reforms and a pro-business agenda. No wonder the Russians are trying to ruin them.

      Pushing radical Muzz across the border is pretty bad.

    Nice name for a security organisation.

    The Russians are delighted to spread the virus; but they have a far bigger Muslim problem.
