Russian Supreme Court rules against Jehovah’s Witnesses and religious freedom

On December 8, 2009, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation considered the appeal of a local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses and upheld the earlier lower court ruling to pronounce 34 pieces of educational religious literature “extremist.” Setting a somber precedent, the Supreme Court dismissed the congregation’s appeal. That congregation and possibly others now face “liquidation.”

What about Islam? Will the Russians find that its literature is "extremist?"

When did the JW ever call for the murder of "unbelievers?"
