Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power

Russia: Chief Mufti Threatens "Conflict" If Russian Orthodox Culture Course Is Taught in Schools
Ravil Gainutdin, the head of Russia's Council of Muftis, lashed out today at plans by the Russian government to introduce a course on the culture of Christian Orthodoxy.
Over the past 1,000 years, nearly all Russian culture, even secular, has been infused by Orthodoxy. One can easily make the argument that if the state fails to cover the importance of Orthodoxy in the country's history and culture, then it is neglecting its duty to properly educate children about their nation's heritage.
As a devout Muslim and follower of the 7th century Arabian warlord, Mohammed,
Gainutdin issued threats in an attempt to intimidate and blackmail the Russian state.
"If this one-sided decision to teach the culture of one religion will be accepted, you (the Russian Education Ministry) will have laid a bomb for the decade ahead, and conflict is inevitable," said Gainutdin in a letter to the Education Ministry.
His threat of conflict was followed by his old demand that Russia create a special department for "Muslim Affairs."
BTW: during Western Resistance's fact-finding mission to Ingushetia and Chechnya in the autumn, we visited public schools, and Islam was being propagated there. For instance, all children were forced to obey Muslim dietary laws and other traditions.
Also, it's interesting that Gainutdin didn't come back with the idea to teach Muslim "culture". Well, there pretty much is no such thing. (If you don't believe me, just visit the "Islamic Art" section at any one of the world's major museums and see how small it is). Islam has made a minimal contribution to world culture. And any culture that arose on lands groaning under the Sword of Islam occured in spite of the Mohammedan cult, and not because of it.
