Imam's Call to Add Crescent Moon Symbol to Russian Emblem Met With Alarm

"In his interview, Tadzhuddin said, “We are asking for one of the heads (of the Russian state emblem, a double-headed eagle) to be topped with a crescent moon and the other to be topped with a Russian Orthodox cross. All the crowns on the coat of arms -- two on the heads of eagles and one above the middle -- are topped by crosses. But Russia has 20 million Muslims. That is 18 percent of the population.”

The problem with this claim is that under Sharia, all people do not have equal rights or status. Under Western, Judaic "Christianized" law, all people have been give the same rights and protection. Historically this has not always been upheld. People have had to fight for these and appeal to the larger population to remember and reclaim these recognized principles--as seen in Britain outlawing slavery and then the U.S. fighting over the rights for all men to be equal under God. But the fact remains, that Judaism and Christianity teach that all men are equal under God and are entitled to the same protection and rights to freedom and liberty.

Through Incrementalism, Tadzhuddin, and Islamists like, him will use the symbolism on the emblem (symbols cease to have meaning unless the people uphold their ideals) the goal is to push more forms of Sharia law, until years later they claim that through the historical symbols on the emblem (the crescent moon) that Russia is an Islamic state . They may eventually even begin to resort to an historical revisionism that Russia had once been Islamic and the lands used to belong to Muslims, and they'll begin to call for Russia to go "back to its roots" and enact more Islamic laws.

Think it far fetched? Hamas claims that there never was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. Even if you point to Trajan's Column that shows Romans taking articles of the temple back to Rome, they'll ignore it and push that the Jews have no historic claim on the land of Palestine.
