Here's a news article I just found:
West in mortal danger from Islam, says Putin

(Filed: 12/11/2002) 

Islamic radicals are pursuing the systematic annihilation of non-Muslims,
President Vladimir Putin claimed yesterday.

The Russian leader said at a European Union summit in Brussels that
western civilisation faced a mortal threat from Muslim terrorists, and
claimed that they had plans to create a "worldwide caliphate".

President Vladimir Putin 
His words overshadowed the main achievement of the summit, which was to
end years of wrangling over Moscow's isolated enclave in Kaliningrad. 

The EU and Russia reached a compromise deal that will prevent Russian
citizens from being cut off in the Baltic port as the EU's borders move
east in 2004.

Mr Putin said the world no longer faced isolated acts of terrorism but a
"concerted effort and programme" by a global network bent on slaughter,
perhaps with nuclear weapons.

He said the West should face up to the reality that Chechen terrorists
were religious extremists in league with al-Qa'eda, rather than a
separatist movement seeking a breakaway republic.

If the West failed to deal with the Chechen terrorist threat, he said,
there would be repeats of the Moscow theatre siege and the Bali bombing
"all over the world".

Mr Putin secured a joint EU-Russian action plan to fight terrorism at the
mini-summit, but he was firmly warned that Europe would not give Russia
carte blanche in its fight against terrorism, particularly after reports
that fragmentation bombs were being used widely against civilians in

Privately, EU diplomats said Mr Putin was playing the al-Qa'eda card for
all it was worth, seeing it as a useful way to create a sense of common
purpose with the West and heighten the strategic value of Russia. 

So although I'm sure it is partially rhetoric on Putin's part, it is
based on actual events and truth. Islamic attacks are happening on most
continents (none on Antarctica, so far). Why? Because they are wanting to
establish power throughout the earth, seeing a Millennial day of their
own, when all would be Muslim.
