ISIS Declares That The Bombing In Russia Was Done To Kill Christians, Praises The Islamic Terrorist Attack That Killed Eleven People In Russia, And Declares That The Bombing Was “A Metro To Hell For The Worshipers Of The Cross”

By Theodore Shoebat

ISIS is now praising the Islamic terrorist attack that killed eleven people in Russia today, declaring that the bombing was “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross”. As we read in one report:

A bomb blast tore through a subway train deep under Russia’s second-largest city Monday, killing 11 people and wounding about 40.

Hours later, police found and defused a shrapnel-packed explosive device at another St. Petersburg station.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came while President Vladimir Putin was visiting the city.

News reports initially said police were searching for two suspects, and Russian state television showed a photo of one suspect wearing what appeared to be a skullcap characteristic of Russia’s Muslim regions. Later, the Interfax news agency said police now suspect the blast was the work of a suicide bomber.

The Investigative Committee, the country’s top criminal investigation body, said it had begun a probe based on the assumption that the attack was terrorism, but added that other possibilities were being considered.

St. Petersburg had been spared previous attacks.

“From now on, I will be scared to take the subway,” said Marina Ilyina, 30, who brought flowers to the station where the train stopped after the bombing. “We in St. Petersburg thought we wouldn’t be touched by that.”

ISIS supporters were praising the attack, according to the website Voactiv.

It reported that an ISIS supporter on the terror group’s al-Minbar online forum wrote, “We ask Allah to bless the operation by the lions of the Caliphate, we ask Allah to kill the Crusaders.”

Another wrote that the bombing created “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross” and claimed that the attacks were revenge for Russia’s attacks on ISIS in Syria’s civil war.

    I was there in january, this did not happen out of the wild blue yonder.
    Вечная память,Vechnaya Pamyat to the fallen. Here is the service for the dead and injured today. It could have been me to day, I planed on being there this week. My CP is acting up so I had to put off traveling.
    St. Petersburg Theological Academy.

      Contradictory as it may seem, I am AWFULLY grateful that your CP is acting up! Would SO hate to learn that something had happened to you- we are so blessed to have your Russian Orthodox Christian/Warrior spirit among us! I pray for the citizens of St. Petersburg and the nation of Russia. May they be healed from the effects of this atrocity- physically, psychologically, and spiritually- and may they be protected and spared from any further attacks. May their love and dedication to the Christian faith and to Christ our Redeemer only be magnified and strengthened by an event such as this.

        I’m just an old sinner like every one else,i just remember to say”Lord have mercy. I so wished to see St Isaac’s Cathedral, now that it has been returned to the church. I would have used that very same station to get there.

      God wants you here Stefan. R.I.P. the deceased and a good recovery for wounded ones. Spiritual Peace in Jesuchrist for all the families affected by this terrorist attack.
      Off-topic (essentially not, because we are all in combat against satan and his hordes): There is an Orthodox Church of France with Gallican Rite that was in Communion with ROCOR… Saint John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco examined the acceptance of this French Church and accepted it as full Orthodox. After Saint John’s death everything turned more difficult and nowadays the Church is not in Communion with any Patriarchate.
      I think that the development of a Western Orthodoxy, with Old Rites previous to 1054 like Gallican, Visigothic-Mozarabic or Roman (taking out Filioque) would be very interesting for the Church, the Mystical Body of Jesuchrist.
      It is not normal but absolutely an aberration that West Europe is confronting Russia while we have muslims, Freemasonry, etc. as common enemies.
      All we need Unity in Jesus and I think that the West have to become Orthodox without becoming Slavic (we must change theological heresies but cannot and needn’t to change our race, language, etc.).
      Solemnity and deepness in the service for deads and wounded. We will win, Jesus already won.

        Things are changing Juan, but will we have the time to make changes? here is the new church in Strausbourg.
        There is hope for change in the UK lets pray for the Rest of Europe Juan.

          I like so much the link to Orthodox England blog, indeed I’ve read not only one article and for sure I will read more.
          I always think in the Anglosphere as the best option for Orthodox missionary work. When Russia see itself in a nationalist way She is commiting a big strategic and theological mistake because She is adopting an ideology from satan (nationalism) and while Russia is thinking She is a powerful earthly nation She remaining blind to the reality: Russia and concretely Moscow is the Center of a Worldwide Christian Empire.
          Anglo-saxon people is extremely talented by God grace to see the simple and inner side of everything and also to achieve unification of human beings… they can be Globalists in a bad sense but also in a very good sense (Christian Ecumene).
          I also think about China as another place prone to Orthodox missionary work.
          Time is limited but we just need humbleness and decision. Legions of angels will fight with us, indeed they are doing just now.
          We must embrace Globalism, not the masonic one but a Global Christian Empire.

    Deport every last Muslim out of Russia is the only answer as they have tried back under the Tsar

    To me the most deaths occurred because Turkey could mot accomodate or care. Even the boats Turkey sent sank

    Ethnic cleansing of Circassians

    We should be the Crusaders. Russia should declare to the Western World that Islam is now banned in Russia and all its provinces, and those who fight against that decree will be declared enemies of the State, and they will be severely dealt with. Putin should instruct Europe, America, Canada, Australia etc, to do things their way but Russia is not going to be destroyed by those who follow an evil ancient warlord! Then go get them President Putin. Trump won’t fight you in defence of Muhamnadans, nor will weak cowardly Europe. You have nothing to worry about, get them Russia?

    Karma for Christians?? We have Christ; this makes the concept of karma unneeded…It is a Buddhist concept; they do not believe in God.

    Recent events are very consistent with prophesies for the end times. God has foreknowledge but does not make our decisions for us re who will be saved. The blood moons may be significant, but the Bible does not say blood moons will be a sign Christ is coming or of end times. The Bible is always right; we do better to head it
    In reading about how much money has been made with prophesies that proved false, recall that Biblical prophets and people knew that if ANY prophesies were false, they did NOT come from God, because He does not make mistakes.
    Luke 16:13
    “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Be careful about those who follow money…
