Caucasian jihad

IN OCTOBER 1832 Russian soldiers besieged the village of Gimry (pictured) in the mountains of Dagestan in an effort to capture Gazi-Muhammad, the first imam of the Caucasus Imamate, who had defied their rule. He was killed, but his follower, Imam Shamil, jumped over the line of Russian bayonets and escaped. Ever since then, Gimry has been a symbol of defiance and a stronghold of Islamic rule.

    See there is a problem when you capture such beautiful lands full of ugly stupid violent people. I’d rather not have the land.

    • Russia has a huge problem. But they will deal with it.
