Russian President Vladimir Putin Says No to Sharia-Fiction!

Summary of the eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that alleged that the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, in a February 4, 2013 address to the Russian Parliament said that immigrant Muslims who desire Sharia and do not like the Russian legal system are welcome go to a country where that is the state law. 

Some versions of this eRumor said that this was Putin's shortest speech ever.
 

The Truth:  
We checked the Russian archives of the speeches by President Vladimir Putin
and found that he made no such address to the Russian Parliament on February 4, 2013.

This eRumor appears to be a spin off from an older one that came from the Land Down Under.   This one said that an Australian Government official told Muslim immigrants are not welcome if they desire to change the Australian standard of law to Sharia. 

That remark was true and made by Australian Finance Minister Peter Costello in a speech to the Sydney Institute on February 23, 2006.    Since then several variations of this eRumor have sprung forth changing the person who made the remark to the elected Australian Prime Minster at the time of circulation.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Here is a message from Russia. More of the world needs to understand the message: unless you are invading another country to "take it over", moving to another country means you want to be a part of THAT country, its culture, its laws, etc., and speak its language. America became so great because people came here to become AMERICANS, but now it seems there are those who come here only to seek to change it to be more like the country they had left ... or are they here to conquer?!

On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Shari'ya Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation for five minutes!

Other version:
Putin's Shortest Speech.. but
they gave him a 5 minute standing ovation !!
I would suggest that not only our leaders but every citizen of the World should pay attention to this advice.

Vladimir Putin's SHORTEST SPEECH EVER.

This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.  How scary is that?

On August 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

"In Russia live like Russians.

Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.

If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.

Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'.

We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture.
We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation.
The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia.
The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.
When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities are not Russians."
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.
If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem!
It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our Hon. Leaders but here it is!
