Chechens Turned to Islam to Find Justice But Circassians Already had It, Bzegezhev Says

Paul Goble

            Staunton, October 25 – Russians and other outsiders are accustomed to lumping together all the peoples of the North Caucasus, except for the North Ossetians, as Muslims, but what it means for each of them to be a Muslim varies widely depending on the nature of their cultural code before Islam arrived and whether it provided justice, Askhad Bzegezhev says.

            Writing on Moscow’s Snob portal, the Circassian commentator says he always was struck by the fact that Russians call all Circassians Muslims while none of his relatives, friends or acquaintances go to mosques or wear the hijab or otherwise behave as Russians expect Muslims to (snob.ru/profile/32165/blog/171092/).

دور المرأة البارز في الحركات القومية بشمال القوقاز

8 أغسطس/آب 2020

         ستاونتون، 2 أغسطس/آب لقد انهارت التقاليد الأبوية في العديد من أمم شمال القوقاز، وأخذت عضوات هذه المجتمعات دورًا أكثر بروزًا وأشمل في الحركات القومية هناك، خاصة بين الإنغوش والشركس.

            ومن بين الإنغوش، على سبيل المثال، زريفة سوتيفا (Zarifa Sautiyeva)، وهي ناشطة في مجال الأرشيف، والآن سجينة سياسية معترف بها دوليًا (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2020/05/zarifa-sautiyeva-ingush-political.html) وإيزابيلا يفلوييفا (Izabella Yevloyeva)، مؤسِّسَة بوابة فورتانغا (Fortanga) المستقلة التي تم إجبارها على الهجرة (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2020/03/izabella-yevloyeva-another-heroine-of.html).

For Russia Now, There are Two North Caucasuses Not One

For Russia Now, There are Two North Caucasuses Not One

Paul Goble

            Staunton, September 20 – Many Russians as well as outside observers routinely speak of the North Caucasus as if it were a unified whole when in fact there is a deep divide between its eastern portion which was Islamicized far earlier and remains more Islamic to this day and the western part which has had a different history.

            Indeed, one is almost justified in speaking of two North Caucasuses not one at least in terms of the Russian presence and control and of the nature of national movements and challenges to Moscow. Read more

More than Half of North Caucasians Say Their Lives Became Worse in 2019, New Poll Finds

Paul Goble

Staunton, September 9 – Fifty-six percent of the residents of Kabardino-Balkaria, Ingushetia and Daghestan say their lives have become worse in 2019. Only 33 percent said their lives had become better, a gap of 23 percent and one that is far larger than the difference of six percent found in a similar poll in 2017.

The poll of 1200 people selected as a representative sample in Kabardino-Balkaria, Ingushetia, and Daghestan by the Medium Orient Agency for the Prague-based Caucasus Times strongly suggests that North Caucasus residents believe their lives are getting worse (caucasustimes.com/ru/opros-bolee-poloviny-zhitelej-severnogo-kavkaz-stali-zhit-huzhe-v-2019-godu/).
