Churches set ablaze in Russia's Muslim Caucasus

Three churches were set ablaze on Monday in Russia's mainly Muslim North Caucasus region where Moscow is trying to tame a spreading Islamist insurgency. Two Russian Orthodox churches and one Baptist Church were set alight in the

predominantly Muslim province of Karachayevo-Cherkessia, Russian news agencies said, adding no one was hurt in the attacks.

 "An unknown group of people set fire to the Russian Orthodox church in the village of Ordzhonikidze, it is practically completely burnt," Interfax reported, citing Kazim Baybanov, a spokesman for the local ministry of interior affairs. Vandalism of churches is rare in Russia's mainly Muslim North Caucasus, where Christian communities live amongst Muslims.

A decade after Moscow drove separatists out of power in Chechnya in the second of two wars, the North Caucasus is plagued by near-daily violence. Youths angry about poverty and fuelled by the global ideology of jihad (holy war) are fighting for an independent state separate from predominantly Christian Russia, where they want to establish Sharia, Islamic law.

However, Karachayevo-Cherkessia, which has a sizeable Christian minority, has seen almost no violence. The insurgents consider the North Caucasus, including Karachayevo-Cherkessia, to be occupied territory.

Archbishop Feofan of the Christian-majority cities of Stavropol and Vladikavkaz, also in the North Caucasus, told state news agency RIA he was going to the site of the arson. Local authorities said they would restore the Orthodox churches as soon as possible..

1 Samuel 15:3 (New International Version, ©2010)

3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”

response of muslims to christians
The reason for this battle that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him sent al-Harith ibn Amir Azadi his book to the king of Busra. Sharhabil son of Amr Ghassani captured him and was a ruler on the land of Sham from Al-Balqa by Caesar Voothagh bonded his feett, and cut his neck.
The murder of the ambassadors and messengers of the most atrocious crimes, equal to, but more than a declaration of war, hardened, so the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him when quoted by the news, he prepared them an army of three thousand fighters, the largest Islamic army did not meet before then only in the battle of the parties .

And said to them: (invade in the name of God, for God's sake, the unbeliever in God, not cheat, not exaggerate , not kill a baby and a woman, not an old person, in an isolated silo, or cut down a tree or a palm , do not demolish building).
