– I maintain that Israel has agents of influence targeting Russian public opinion, and some of them purposefully work to incite anti-Muslim sentiment and generally instigate ethnic and religious enmity within Russia. People like Satanovsky, Eskin and other shills seek to drag Russia into the fight on Israel’s side by promoting the “common destiny” narrative, and by pitting Russians against Muslims.
Should they succeed, Russians may fall out with a whole lot of their long-time neighbors and fellow countrymen, including the numerous ethnic groups in the Caucasus, Central Asia and Russia’s steppe regions, who all share Islam as their religion. This would lead to a dramatic split between Russia and the entire Muslim world, undermine its record as a unique historic project based on a dialogue of civilizations, derail Russia from its path of independent development, and make it utterly dependent upon Israel and its Western sponsors, whose ultimate goal is to have Russia partitioned and sucked dry of its enormous natural resources.
