1:25 pm
school. why i don't know probably because we're all afraid to talk about it. what are you afraid of that will go to sleep one night and when we wake up our brothers will have left to join isis no one can see it coming when you see that is not you know anyone who is with them now. but i was with them. everyone says you'll find paradise if you go but that's not true paradise can only be where your mother lives. thousands of chechens have a different opinion of this sort paradise in acts of terror. but their path is leading them home for their families of the our husbands and sons. for the government though they are terrorists and to murderers. that support but. the russian olympic committee has confirmed that six time olympic
