Mishiko ready to adopt Islam to spite Russia2011-02-03 21:05
The cobbler should stick to his last and the president should not exercise someone else's functions. For instance, he should not try on a theologist's gown. That's what the restless Saakashvili has been doing of late, ready to seek for allies anywhere - in Europe or on Mars. Things have not yet got to little green men; still, Mishiko has already made curtseys to Vatican. Now he decided to enlist sympathies of Mohammed's adherents and is moving towards them with his arms dangerously open.
It was an agreement with Turkey that became a pretext for declaring love for Muslims. Tbilisi asked for a permission to restore four ancient Georgian churches in the Turkish territory and Ankara set forth a condition that Georgia must restore three mosques in its territory and build a new one in Batumi in response.
Georgian society did not welcome the initiative, though Mikheil Saakashvili quickly explained the party's and government's policy, having produced another portion of theological and historical speeches.
"There are various opinions on the matter. Georgia is an Orthodox Christian country but there are several dozens of thousands of Muslims living in Georgia who are its integral part. Those who say that a mosque is an anti-Georgian phenomenon mean that these people should not live here. We've already experienced such meanness, which gave Russia an incredible trump for our destruction. How many times shall we come back to one and the same folly? That's not a cultural or social fight. That's when you tell a Borjomi or a Manreuli Muslim in the face that there is no place for him in Georgia. I will not have it this way. David Agmashenebeli went to a mosque, a synagogue and a church several times a day. I have been to an Armenian church; I celebrated Christmas in a Catholic Church. I have to respect all religions despite the one I practice", - Saakashvili stated. As usual, he managed to produce enough material for a dozen of articles at a time.
Of course, Russia is to blame for everything - even for the nightmares that bother the Georgian president's quiet sleep. That's out of the question. But why Georgia's anti-Muslim attitude is a trump card for its destruction in Russia's hands? It looks like Saakashvili is unable to answer this question: the more verbiage, the less reason it contains and the reason it has got does not correspond to facts.
