Putin opens a new mosque in Moscow, one of the largest in Europe

(CSM) At the opening of the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, President Vladimir Putin suggested that embracing Muslims at home would discourage them from joining extremists abroad.

This week, Russian President Vladimir Putin opened a new mosque in Moscow – the largest in the nation and one of the largest in Europe.

Mr. Putin described the occasion as an opportunity to make progress against the ideology of Islamic State (IS) by bridging the divide between Islam and Christianity, reported The New York Times.

"Terrorists from the so-called Islamic State actually cast a shadow on the great global religion of Islam," he said. "Their ideology is built on hate."

Right, building mosques prevents terrorism. Get out of my face with this bullshit!
