KGB/FSB defector Alexander Litvinenko was assassinated by Russia in London for revealing many secrets of the Russian intelligence services.

Shortly before he was assassinated via polonium poisoning in 2006, KGB/FSB defector Alexander Litvinenko said, “The center of global terrorism is not in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan or the Chechen Republic. The terrorism infection creeps away worldwide from the cabinets of the Lubyanka Square and the Kremlin.” The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) is the new name for the KGB.

Russian Red Jihad

The former Soviet Union and today’s Russia are behind international terrorism and are working closely with al-Qaeda and Islamic State or, as is known in the Middle East, Daesh. Very few Americans, including those in our government or running for president, are aware that Russia is using radical Islam as a weapon against the United States and the West.

Cliff Kincaid and Jeff R. Nyquist are experts on communism and in their book, Red Jihad Moscow´s Final Solution for America and Israel (2016), they examine the Russian strategy to destroy the United States and Israel. This book documents the substantial evidence that supports Russian involvement with the jihadists who are increasingly targeting Europe and the United States. It is designed to help understand Russia’s involvement with Islamic State, China, North Korea, Iran, Syria, and other countries and conflicts.

Co-author Cliff Kincaid said, “Understanding what lies behind the Red Jihad is essential to national survival.” This book points out that Russian president Vladimir Putin is a former Soviet KGB Coronel and his regime is based on the remnants of the old Soviet Union, including its military and intelligence establishment. It explains that the reorganization of the old Soviet Union has confused many in the West. Russian dictator Vladimir Putin continues to use a massive campaign of disinformation and deception assisted by an uninformed established media, useful idiots, spies, and agents of influence to give the United States and the West a sense of false security.

Cliff Kincaid and Jeff R. Nyquist explain in their book, Red Jihad Moscow´s Final Solution for America and Israel (2016), how the former Soviet Union and Russia today are behind international terrorism.

Red Jihad has a chapter with the title “Barack Obama: Marxist/Muslim Mole,” which explains Obama’s relationship with his communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis and how Obama’s Marxism has trumped his Muslim sympathies and explains his approach to global affairs. This book examines Russia’s nuclear weapons modernization program, threats to incinerate America, and penetration of the West through espionage operations and agents of influence.

Jeff Nyquist, in a separate article, discusses Russia’s latest moves in Syria and the Muslim invasion of Europe. He said that he has multiple sources that allege that the Islamic State is backed by the Russian intelligence services and there is the intriguing suggestion by a Russian friend that Turkish communists may also be involved in ISIS.

Nyquist pointed out the following: “Gaidar Jamal, the crazy Azeri Islamist in Moscow, supposedly admitted on his website that the FSB was recruiting for ISIS in Russia. There are other Russian sources on this, and it’s something that isn’t getting any attention from the mainstream media. For those who understand how Moscow plays the game, the proper term for all this is scissors strategy. It is a strategy in which both blades of the scissors are controlled by the same hand. This is nothing new to the Russians. They have played this kind of game before. It is an old trick, from a very old bag of tricks… Russia was not behind Islam twelve centuries ago, and Moscow’s present use of Islam as a weapon against the West doesn’t mean Islam is, after all, a peaceful religion. It is merely that Russian agents, having infiltrated Islam, can make trouble for the West that might otherwise be directed at them.”

Gaidar Jamal is a Russian Islamic revolutionary and founder and chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia.

According to Nyquist, Cliff Kincaid of American Survival said that the current Ayatollah in Iran was educated in the Soviet Union. Nyquist concluded his article by explaining the following: “How can we reconcile the atheism of Moscow then and now with the supposedly Moscow-Tehran alliance? Is not the Iranian regime a client state of Moscow, and a client of Beijing as well? How, then, can Moscow be fighting Islamic radicals in Syria while allied with Islam in Tehran? Through all of this we discover how complicated the game actually is.”

Lieutenant General Ion Mihai Pacepa

In July 1978, President Jimmy Carter granted political asylum to Lieutenant General Pacepa, who later became a U.S. citizen. Pacepa is the highest-ranking intelligence officer to ever defect from the Soviet-bloc. General Pacepa has assisted enormously the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), which praised him for providing “an important and unique contribution to the United States.” He has written many books and articles.


The website Bear Witness Central published an article entitled “Russian Red Jihad” on December 9, 2015. It discussed the article written by former Soviet-bloc Romanian intelligence officer Lieutenant General Ion Mihai Pacepa for World Net Daily. Christian Gomez also discussed this article on the New American magazine on October 2, 2012.

General Pacepa wrote how the recent wave of Islamic radicalism in the Middle East, from the Arab Spring to the jihadist Benghazi on September 11, 2012 and Cairo attacks, were not the work of spontaneous attacks, but rather the result of a decades-long of carefully planned operation by the Soviet Union and now by Russia. In his article, Pacepa said that “the day of our ambassador’s murder, Sept. 11, 2012, also happened to be the very day the Kremlin celebrated a significant anniversary — 125 years since the birth of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the KGB, now rechristened FSB.” Pacepa explained the following: “My past experience at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence community gives me solid ground to state that the Muslim attacks on U.S. embassies and the assassination of our ambassador to Libya, carried out with Soviet-made rocket-propelled grenades, Kalashnikovs and Molotov cocktails, were just as “spontaneous” as the May Day parades in Moscow — and that they have the same organizers.”

Yuri Andropov - Soviet Life, August 1983.jpg

Yuri Andropov served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from November 12, 1982 until his death fifteen months later on February 9, 1984. He was the head of the KGB from 1967 to 1982. Andropov was also involved in the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. He is the father of today’s anti-Semitism and international terrorism.

General Pacepa cited a personal encounter in 1972 with then-KGB chairman Yuri Andropov in which Andropov revealed a secret Soviet plan to promote revolution in the Islamic world via the use of anti-American and anti-Semitic propaganda. The plan included the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and was translated into Arabic and disseminated throughout the Middle East. Pacepa remembered Andropov as telling him, “The idea was to portray the United States as a war-mongering, Zionist country financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious ‘Council of the Elders of Zion’ (the KGB’s derisive epithet for the U.S. Congress) intent on transforming the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom.”

Pacepa refers to Andropov as the “Father of today’s anti-Semitism and international terrorism.” The KGB head Yuri Andropov described the “Muslim world as a waiting petri dish, in which we could nurture a strain of hate-America, grown from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought.” He said that Islamic anti-Semitism ran deep in the Muslim world.

Pacepa noted his specific role in the project as follows: “Before I left Romania for good in 1978, my Romanian espionage service alone had sent some 500 undercover agents to various Islamic countries. Most of them were religious servants, engineers, medical doctors, teachers and art instructors. According to a rough estimate received from Moscow, by 1978 the whole Soviet bloc intelligence community had sent around 4,000 such agents of influence to the Islamic world. No one can say for certain how much influence these efforts had, but it should have made some dent. A year after the entire Soviet-bloc intelligence community had sent some 4,000 agents of influence to the Islamic world; Islamic revolutionaries toppled the Shah in Iran and stormed into the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking American hostages. From then on the U.S. has had to contend with Islamic terrorism, most notably with Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda. In 1983, Hezbollah introduced itself to the world by bombing the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut. A decade later, Hezbollah carried out terrorist attacks on the Israeli Mutual Exchange Building in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Islamic terrorism has cost America dearly, but can it accurately be said that it has, at least in part, been the result of covert Soviet operations?”

Soviet Power and Islam


Bloody dictator Vladimir Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution were supported by Muslims in Russia.

General Pacepa explained that in 1984, the Communist Party-controlled Novosti press, in Moscow, published a small booklet entitled Soviet Power and Islam. This booklet noted the history of Soviet-Muslim collaboration, starting with the October Revolution of 1917. Muslims living in Central and Eastern Russia initially supported Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik Revolution against, what they perceived as, the anti-Islamic government of the Tsar Nicholas II. The booklet cited the following statement from the Muslim Board of Russia, dated September 15, 1923: “By the holy mercy of Allah the revolution that took place in Russia has eliminated the ruthless, despotic autocracy which used to persecute the religion of Islam.”

General Pacepa said that on October 25, 1926, the Soviet-sponsored All-Russia Congress of the Muslim Clergy opened with the following telegram addressed to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union stating: “On behalf of all Muslims the Congress expresses gratitude and devotion to Soviet power, the defender of the oppressed peoples of the East, and promises to support the Soviet Government’s measures to consolidate the gains of the revolution.”

According to Soviet Power and Islam, the Soviet Union set up special Muslim Boards, which were responsible for the “Supervision of the mosques and guidance of the spiritual life of Muslims in the USSR”. These Muslim Boards included:

  • the Muslim Board of Central Asia and Kazakhstan with headquarters in Tashkent
  • the Muslim Board of Siberia and the European Part of the USSR with headquarters in the town of Ufa
  • the Muslim Board of North Caucasus and Daghestan with headquarters in Makhachkala
  • the Muslim Board of Transcaucasia with headquarters in Baku

General Pacepa pointed out that Muslim devotion to Soviet power became most evident in the 1970s, when the Arab countries went to war against Israel. After the fourth Arab-Israeli war in October 1973 the leaders of the Muslim religious institutions of the USSR convened a conference on November 13-14, 1973 under the motto “For Support of the Just Struggle of the Peoples of the Arab Countries for the Liberation of Their Territories, for National Independence and Social Progress.” This conference was attended by delegations from Egypt, Iraq, Libya, the Yemen Arab Republic, and Kuwait. It also adopted an “Appeal to All Muslims and People of Good Will,” which stated “We, Muslims of the USSR, express our full solidarity with the fraternal Arab peoples fighting for the unity, freedom, independence and national sovereignty of their countries. In accordance with our religious duty, we insist on the establishment of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East — the sacred land of the followers of various religions.”

General Pacepa explained that to promote the establishment of such a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, the Muslims of the USSR demanded the implementation of the resolution passed on October 22, 1973 by the United Nations Security Council of the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Israeli troops from all occupied Arab lands and recognition of the legitimate rights of the Arab people of Palestine to determine their own future.

General Pacepa said the following: “This notion of self-determination has been the historic linchpin for the Soviet-backed communist revolutions and insurgencies in China, Cuba, Vietnam, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Uruguay, and Angola. Realizing the unique nature of the Middle East, the Soviet Union knew it could not rely on traditional Marxism-Leninism or a Russian white face to ferment anti-capitalist and anti-Western revolution. Instead, the Kremlin adapted its rhetoric to a more Islamic tone and employed the use of Muslims already living in the Soviet Union, who remained loyal toward the Soviet government, to help carry out this mission.”

Soviet-Muslim Terror Connection

General Alexander Sakharovsky, the head of the KGB 1st Chief Directorate (responsible for foreign intelligence) from 1956-1971, said, “In today’s world, when nuclear arms have made military force obsolete, terrorism should become our main weapon.”

Pacepa said that Moscow’s endgame for Islamic terrorism was the establishment of communism. In the “Report of the Central Committee of the CPSU” to the 26th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev told the assembly of Communist Party delegates, “The banner of Islam may lead into struggle for liberation.”,204,203,200_.jpg

Lieutenant Colonel Konstantin Preobrazhensky published the book KGB/FSB’s New Trojan Horse: Americans of Russian Descent (2008).

General Pacepa explained that Lubyanka Square refers to the headquarters of the KGB, now FSB. In 2008, Russian KGB/FSB defector Lieutenant Colonel Konstantin Preobrazhensky published the book KGB/FSB’s New Trojan Horse: Americans of Russian Descent. In this book, Preobrazhensky states that unlike the apolitical CIA or British MI-6, the FSB “is a department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.”

Lieutenant Colonel Preobrazhensky described the FSB as the “armed unit” of the Communist Party that remained intact following the 1991 restructuring of the USSR into the modern day Russian Federation. “The FSB and the Communist Party share the same ideas,” Preobrazhensky writes, “the chekist [name given to KGB/FSB officers] even now remain Communists in their hearts.” One well known chekist or former agent of the “armed unit” of the CPSU is current Russian President Vladimir Putin, an admirer of Yuri Andropov.

Lubyanka building was the headquarters of the KGB, now the Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia.

Andropov was the head of the KGB from 1967 to 1982 and personally told Lieutenant General Pacepa of the need to use the Islamic world, most notably, the Middle East, to stir up anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment for the sake of the Marxist-Leninist revolution. Putin’s very own motives may well be extrapolated from the following statement he made as President in 2005, “The collapse of the Soviet Union was the greatest geo-political catastrophe of the century.”

With the Middle East engulfed in ongoing Islamic revolution, it remains to be seen what the outcome will be. But one thing is certain, as the clocks draws closer to 2017 — marking the 100th Anniversary of the first October Socialist Revolution — one should not dismiss the role of Russia.

The current head of al-Qaida, Ayman Mohammed al-Zawahiri, appears in the picture with Osama bin Laden when he was second in command.


The head of al-Qaida, Ayman Mohammed al-Zawahiri, is a KGB agent who works with Russia. Russia is working with all terror organizations to distract the United States while it spent trillions in wars while Putin has been rearming Russia as well as China. Obama’s erroneous and weak foreign policy and his unilateral disarmament have given the opportunity for Putin to become the strong man in the Middle East as well as continue the military aggression of Ukraine.


It is very important for presidential candidates of both parties, the Pentagon, Congress, members of the executive branch, the media, and Americans to understand that Russia is the number one geopolitical enemy of America. Equally important is to know that Russia is using jihadists throughout the world as a weapon against the United States and the West. Russia dictator Vladimir Putin has used and continues to use a massive campaign of disinformation and deception assisted by an uninformed established media, useful idiots, spies, and agents of influence to give the United States and the West a sense of false security. Putin, as Senator Marco Rubio said, is a thug. The Russian dictator hates profoundly the United States and the West and would like to ultimately destroy and conquer America and its allies.
