A-istan B-istan C-istan

Reader comment on item: Muslim Russia?

Submitted by myth (Germany), Oct 22, 2013 at 10:51

I have met many people from Eastern Europe and far away places in Russia who recently came to Western Europe. Much to their surprise the presence of oriental immigrants characterizes the West of Europe. I understand a similar surprise awaits the traveller going into Russia twenty years from now.

Russia may follow the pattern of the Soviet Union. The union shrank to Russia and gave birth to smaller countries. Russia tomorrow could shrink and cut loose some A-istan, B-istan, C-istan territories along the borders. So long as the nuclear weapons stay on what remains of Russia everone will be just fine.

The Russion people as part of the Soviet Union had all the spirit, and paid with all their blood, to resist German occupation - even when this meant Stalinism would stay. The Russian spirit is still alive but the numbers have decreased.

Last time I drank vodka with a Russian I learned one never leaves an empty bottle on the table. No matter how blurred the vision, unstable the walk, unintelligible the words, the bottle on the table would be a filled one. Any defeatitist thought shall go with the empty bottle under the table. I do not expect the Russians to live side by side with a considerable muslim population. There will not be a bottle of vodka next to a bottle of halal-whatever on the table.
