Sputnik columnist Alexander Shpakovsky the relationship terrorist attack in Berlin and the murder Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov in Ankara.
History has yet to give an answer to the question of whether the links of the same chain of murder Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov and brutal terrorist attack in Berlin that killed 12 people. But in fact, not so important, criminals acting in the framework of the general plan, or it was an attack of different groups, and even at all performances lone extremists.
The Berlin tragedy and the death of the Russian diplomat, which occurred virtually simultaneously, clearly point out to any Europeans that there is a common enemy. This enemy is Islamic fundamentalism in all its manifestations. There are already a lot of reasons for the radicalization of the adherents of Islam and, of course, the Muslim religion itself has nothing to do with extremism. Rather, it may be that a modern world order with an absolutely unfair distribution of wealth and wealth on the planet, the dominance of the rich over the poor, the imposition of so-called universal values contrary to tradition, generates and stimulates terrorism as the most radical form of protest.
However, understanding the nature of Islamic terrorism can not in any case to drive themselves into a corner tolerance and justify this phenomenon. The destruction of the terrorists and dismantle the obsolete neoliberal world order, which has been flourishing over the years after the Soviet collapse, have to go on a parallel course. It seems that it is now engaged in Russia.
The Russian military operation in Syria clearly indicates that Russia is ready to resolutely defend its interests and defend its allies, and, if necessary, by military force. A year ago, after an impressive volley of Caliber rockets fired from the ships of the Caspian flotilla by the Islamic state militants, it became obvious that the world was no longer unipolar. The weariness of Americans from "useful idiots", enthusiasts of promoting democracy, who managed to discern in the bearded Islamists "children from Aleppo" and "fighters for freedom," was one of the reasons that led to the victory of the eccentric Donald Trump in the US elections.
Meanwhile, billionaire just said publicly what many people in the West, crushed by "expert opinions" and propaganda, thought, but were afraid to say, the enemy of Euro-Atlantic civilization and the free world is not Russia, and Islamic terrorism!
This, of course, does not mean that the Anglo-Americans to give up their messianism, which is an integral part of their mentality, but leaves the hope that the West, led by the United States at least on a number of positions will be transferred from the pressure, expansion, deception and endless moralizing to cooperation.
Against the backdrop of the Berlin tragedy and the fact that only this year terrorists killed 190 citizens of the European Union states, all this nonsense about the Russian military threat looks like an absurd foolishness and an anachronism from the last century, for it is Russian soldiers and officers who are dying in the battles with Islamists in Syria. Naturally, Russia defends the interests of its own security in the Middle East, first of all. But it is obvious that, fighting with the terrorists of the IG, Jabhat al-Nusra and other groups, the Russian army covers, among other things, the old Europe. And it is not Russia's actions that provoke the flow of refugees from Arab countries into the EU, but just "the promotion of democracy" and the "overthrow of dictatorial regimes" in the countries of the Arab arc caused this phenomenon. Have not Syria, Libya, Iraq been the nests of terrorism as a source of endless flows of migrants to a full and prosperous Europe? No, they were not. Does Syrian President Bashar Assad ordering the killing of Europeans? No, his opponents do it. So, it turns out that Assad and Russia are on the side of good and truth, and their critics are doing evil? It is such simple reflections that come to mind more and more people of the EU, and the Western elite, who convulsively cling to the remnants of the old unipolar world, where there was only one word of freedom, is driving itself into a corner.
It is believed that the tendency to protest vote against the establishment in the future will only increase, and the more the West will apply sanctions against Russia, the higher the popularity of Russia and Putin in the eyes of ordinary people in Europe.
Cabinet European bureaucrats and liberal dogmatists, who grew up on the ruins of the Cold War, already in tatters spread criticism from left and right. Eastern Europe is less subordinate center in Brussels and in Germany, France, Austria policy necessarily include in their program item on the attitude to Russia.
Results of voting in different countries show that the "red man", "Russian Ivan", "Asian" does not frighten anyone else: time is on our side!
We need to stand day yes night to hold out, a new world will certainly be fairer than the current one. In this case, the innocent victims of the victims of terrorist attacks, in addition to the dead soldiers of the Russian and Syrian army, certainly enlisted in the ranks of those who died for the freedom of humanity and peaceful development of the world without a war of civilizations and the global police.
