2000 Shock In Moscow

Shocked Into Alarm: On May 16 of 2000 I went to Moscow and then to  Olga's home in the Caucuses before returning home June 2 . I returned to Russia in August to marry Olga. We were in Moscow during the metro bombing August 8. We were registering for the month wait before marrying in Moscow on September 9. The bombing was a shock made real when we had to walk through the subway hall where the people were murdered.

Look at the horror below! We had to walk down these stairs!

The Byzantine-Ottoman wars and the Ottoman wars in Europe brought large numbers of slaves into the Islamic world.[58] From the mid to late 14th, through early 18th centuries, the Ottoman devşirme?janissary system enslaved and forcibly converted to Islam an estimated 500,000 to one million non?Muslim (primarily Balkan Christian) adolescent males.[59] After the Battle of Lepanto approximately 12,000 Christian galley slaves were freed from the Ottoman fleet.[60] A few years later Cervantes, who later wrote the famous book Don Quixote, was captured by corsairs and enslaved in Algiers, attempted to escape and was eventually ransomed; he wrote about the plight of Christian slaves in his fiction. Eastern Europe suffered a series of Tatar invasions, the goal of which was to loot and capture slaves into jasyr.[61] Seventy-five Crimean Tatar raids were recorded into Poland?Lithuania between 1474 and 1569.[62] There were more than 100,000 Russian captives in the Kazan Khanate alone in 1551.[63]

Decapitation In The Koran

Sura 8:12
I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.
Sura 47:4
Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens.
