Just to Throw Out There

by Nathan Hamm on 4/7/2004

I would treat this with lots of caution, but it’s interesting nonetheless. In my last post, I linked a story from EurasiaNet that kind of mentioned a new group called Islamic Jihad taking credit for the Uzbekistan bombings on Centrasia.ru.

For those who read Russian, here ’tis. For those who don’t, here’s what Office spit back at me:

Assalomu alaykum VA of rakhmatullokh!
Respected friend, reading your articles we they were convinced of the fact that you try to give objective evaluation to the proiskhodyashim events. We they sent its Rotation several to sites with the request to publish it. However, until now no one wanted to publish it. We request you to publish it on your site.
Until now question- who, is worth answering for these matters.
