The same cathedral was attacked in December, 2011 by naked protesters, the police declined to prosecute, eventually they had no choice.

That's great logic! Don't prosecute a bigger crime and then drop a bomb on some minor offenders making a political statement because you have no choice. Aww! Poor agents of a police state run by a former KGB chief. They are just so put upon.
If Justin Bieber or the Rolling Stones suddenly decided to stage an impromptu concert in a public place somewhere in America without a permit, would the authorities ignore it and shrug it off? Doubtful. Even buskers performing in the New York City subway system can't play without formal authorization from the city.

What about taking such a musical performance into a church? If Jennifer Lopez or Madonna just showed up in a place of worship, stripped down to their skivvies and started dancing around the altar, would that fly in any Western democracy? Not likely.

So why,...
