Salam,

While we're watching the winter olympics we can learn more about the region that WAS historically Muslim.

Interesting article about the Muslims of Sochi trying to build a Mosque for decades. Very sad. This is also the region that butchered and killed thousands and thousands of Circassian Muslims: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/02/why-sochi-has-no-mosques

also another article about the Muslims: http://almadinainstitute.org/blog/sochi-deep-wounds-with-superficial-glamour/

and the ethnic cleansing: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/150-years-ago-Sochi-was-the-site-horrific-ethnic-cleansing-180949675/?page=2
