Day 128

Chaim starts the video by mentioning the Egyptian position absolutely refusing to take even one Palestinian refugee from the Gaza Strip into the Sinai Peninsula, even threatening to abolish the 1979 Camp David Peace Accords if any Palestinian refugees cross the border.

But tiny Chechnya, which is a Moslem-majority province in the Russian Federation, has offered to take in a small number of Palestinian refugees. Chaim then goes over some of the history of Chechnya’s wars with Moscow back in the 1990s, which included a call for Jihad against Russia and an actual rise of jihadist control of neighboring Dagestan.

However, the Russians crushed these rebellions by the Moslems of Chechnya and Dagestan and by 2005, both areas were completely under the Kremlin’s control. However, they remain Moslem-governed and Chaim says that this offer from Chechnya to take in Palestinian refugees might be part of a renewal of jihadism in the Caucuses. He concludes his video by asking his viewers to share their thoughts in the comments section.
