This would contradict the Blind Shiek theory… or maybe not?

Germany warns Cyprus its banks may NEVER reopen as Russia ‘offers to write off debt if Gazprom get access to untapped oil fields’.March 20, 2013
(OTHER)Germany warns Cyprus its banks may NEVER reopen as Russia ‘offers to write off debt if Gazprom get access to untapped oil fields’.(DM).Germany’s warning came after Cyprus’s parliament overwhelmingly rejected a proposed levy on bank deposits as a condition for a European bailout of 10 billion euros (£8.6bn) last night. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it was up to the Cypriot government to come up with an alternative proposal but it was fair to expect savers with deposits over 100,000 euros (£86,000) to contribute to the bailout. Moscow is now a massive ally for Cyprus – Cypriot Finance Minister Michael Sarris said he had not reached a deal at a first meeting today with his Russian counterpart Anton Siluanov, but talks there would continue. …Russia’s finance ministry said Nicosia had sought a further 5 billion euros, on top of a five-year extension and lower interest on an existing 2.5 billion euro loan. Moscow was angered that the European Union did not consult it over the proposed levy. President Vladimir Putin called the decision to seize money from savers’ bank accounts as ‘unfair, unprofessional and dangerous’. Representatives of the Russian energy giant submitted the proposal to the office of Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades on Sunday evening. ‘The entire wealth of the Church is at the disposal of the country … so that we can stand on our own two feet and not on those of foreigners,‘Archbishop Chrysostomos said after meeting Anastasiades early today. The Church of Cyprus is a major shareholder in Cyprus’s third-largest domestic lender, Hellenic Bank. It is also rumoured that the Kremlin is privately offering to help bail out Cyprus in exchange for the right to use a naval base in the Greek part of the island.Hmmmm…….Would be very welcome now that Tartus is ‘sinking’.Read the full story here. Update: Cyprus Fails to Obtain Kremlin Aid.(MT) Sarris did not manage to negotiate a Russian bailout despite a 1 1/2 hour meeting with his counterpart, Anton Siluanov. “We had a very good first meeting, very constructive, very honest discussion,” he told journalists afterward, Bloomberg reported. Sarris subsequently attended a second meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Siluanov and Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak. An undisclosed source told Russian newswires that negotiations had not yielded any results and would continue Thursday. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso is due to visit Moscow on Thursday for scheduled talks. “We understand how difficult the situation is, and we’ll continue negotiations to find the solutions that will help us obtain Russia’s support,” Sarris said, adding that the Cypriot delegation would remain in Moscow “until we reach any agreement.” Read the full story here.(Man In Glass House Dress In Basement) This is payback for the Leviathon gas and petrol finds Cyprus is involved with Israel against the will of Moscow and Syria.

so how long could the Russian alliance with Syria and Iran go on if they are fighting for resources? Could Russia betray the axis? Maybe head towards Turkey… or maybe even Israel?
Brought up as an Orthodox Christian by her mother, Aminat Kurbanova looked a picture of happiness at her wedding nine years ago – marrying the man with whom she had fallen in love at drama school.
But she converted to Islam in 2007 and three months ago walked into the house of a Muslim cleric in Dagestan, Russia, wearing a 3lb bomb, and blew herself up – killing eight people including her.
Once a stage actress, the 29-year-old mother had transformed into a Muslim suicide bomber. The blast shocked Russia but her mother Vera Saprighina insists she was ‘a kind person, not a monster’.Happy: Aminat Kurbanova, 29, of Dagestan, Russia, is seen smiling on her wedding day in 2003 to Marat Kurbanov. She converted to Islam four years later and blew herself up earlier this year
Kurbanova was brought up in Makhachkala, Dagestan, and gained top marks at the city’s arts and drama college – where she met her future husband Marat Kurbanov, reported the Sunday Times.
The couple married in 2003 and she gave birth to a daughter, Malika, two years later. In 2006 the couple were introduced to Islam by Marat’s brother Rustam – and Kurbanov converted a year later.
‘She said she had finally found the right religion for her,’ her mother Vera Saprighina told the Sunday Times. ‘Before long, both left the theatre because dancing and acting are considered un-Islamic.’
But Rustam was killed in a police house raid on suspected militants in 2008. It shocked the couple. Marat left home, never to come back, and is thought to have joined militants to avenge the death.Conversion: The 29-year-old woman transformed herself from an actress into a Muslim suicide bomberLocation: At least 12 religious leaders have been killed over the last two years in Dagestan – allegedly by militants angry that they are too friendly with the authorities
However 12 months later, Marat also died when police opened fire on a car that did not stop at a checkpoint – and Kurbanova ‘often said she wished she had died with him’, Ms Saprighina stated.Mugshot: A photo of Amanat Kurbanova issued by the Dagestan branch of Russia’s Interior Ministry
Then Marat’s other brother Ali, a sportsman living in Moscow, vanished on holiday in Dagestan after being allegedly killed by police. Therefore by this stage, both of Marat’s brothers were dead – along with him.
Kurbanova started to earn money as an Islamic dress seamstress and became more religious. She began to be watched by security services, who allegedly searched her flat and questioned her after the death of her husband.
She later married the best man at her wedding, Timur Kurbamagomedov, but this was short-lived – and she left a note for her mother in March saying she was worried about being tortured.
Kurbanova walked into the home of Sheikh Said Atsayev, 74, after kissing her daughter goodbye and blew herself up with a steel-bolt bomb, killing seven others – including the cleric himself and a 12-year-old boy who was there with his father.
Her relatives tried to keep the news from Malika, but she overheard at school that ‘your mum’s a suicide bomber’ and saw her mother’s severed head on TV, reported the Sunday Times.
At least 12 religious leaders have been killed over the last two years in Dagestan – allegedly by militants angry that they are too friendly with the authorities. Atsayev could have been targeted because he spoke against violent Islam.
Kurbanova’s family said Malika often asks questions about her late parents and wants to know ‘when she will join them up there in the sky’.
