Default Why Is Karachaevo-Cherkessia Quiet?

A classic account from a place I've never heard of and where Russian COIN / CT is very different:
...the police officer can no longer revert to cruel methods of investigation against a person who prays next to him.

(Later) The example of Kabardino-Balkaria indicates that the authorities normally prefer to strike preemptively to antagonize, alienate and radicalize the Muslim community in order to justify the government terror that follows.
The full title is 'Why Is Karachaevo-Cherkessia Quiet When Its Neighbors Suffer From Violence?'. Link:
