Chechens, turks

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: one huge flaw in your theory

Chechens who blow up schools are salafis, not sufis. On the contrary, the Kadyrov clan which oposes terrorists in Chechenia are indeed sufis.

The army which invaded Cyprus what not an islamic army but rather the secularist army run by Turkish generals who are among staunchest oponents of Islamism. It is undeniable fact that Turks murdered a number of Christian Cypriot Greeks during the Cyprus invasion, but it is the issue of nationalist hate between the two nations and has no direct link with the religion.
