Hidden threats to rabbis of Southern Russian revealed
Anonymous Telegram channels have published the addresses of synagogues and the names of the rabbis in Stavropol, Krasnodar, Sochi, Nalchik and Derbent, accompanied by anti-Semitic statements. There are no direct calls for violence, but mentions are made of "Israeli terrorists" in the Caucasus, who "are closing our mosques and building their own synagogues."
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the aggravation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict had evoked a response among Muslims in Northern Caucasus. Thus, in Chechnya, the official clergy organizes daily mass prayers in support of Palestine; and residents of Makhachkala tried to hold a rally on October 17, which was dispersed by law enforcers. On October 19, the Dagestani Muftiate called on mosque Imams to pray for an end to the war at Friday namazes (prayers).
Thousands of residents come to mosques in Chechnya to pray for the people of Palestine. They are calling for an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, local residents have reported.
The rabbis' names and addresses of synagogues were made public by an anonymous Telegram channel; in the description, the goal thereof is treated as "the coverage of historical and today's events in the Caucasus, the Islamic Ummah and the rest of the world."
