Stupid fake sultan of asserbaboon Islamic countries are not the hypocrites, you are! They know the truth that Armenia never destroys houses of worship or cultural places, that is why they are establishing good relations with Armenia. Why don't you talk about the ten thousand cross stones your army personal destroyed in plain sight for the whole world to see!

Muslims should know that Armenia, destroying our sacred mosques can not be friend of Muslim countries, said Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev.

He made the remarks at the extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul on December 13.

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to OIC, its members and the Muslim societies of the world for the just support provided to Azerbaijan in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict . For more than 20 years, Armenia has occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijani lands, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven adjusted districts. Nagorno-Karabakh is the native and historical land of Azerbaijan. As a result of the Armenian aggression, more than one million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced persons. The occupied territories were subjected to complete ethnic cleansing and were looted," the head of state underlined.

President Aliyev noted that Armenia destroyed all cultural monuments, including mosques and Islamic monuments.

"Meanwhile, Armenia wants to establish friendly relations with various Muslim states. This is the biggest hypocrisy. The world's Muslims should know that Armenia, which destroys sacred mosques, cannot be a friend of Muslim countries," the head of state said.

The President recalled that in 1993 the UN Security Council adopted four resolutions demanding the immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the Azerbaijani territory.

"However, Armenia refuses to implement them. The organization of Islamic cooperation and other international organizations adopted similar decisions and resolutions. Azerbaijan will never reconcile with the Armenian occupation, the conflict should be settled only within the internationally recognized borders and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan," said President Aliyev.

Turkey university professor demands from Azerbaijani students to give Armenia flag back
16:04, 18.12.2017

A scandal in connection with Armenian and Azerbaijani national flags took place at Uludağ University in Bursa, Turkey.

The Azerbaijani students of this institution of higher education said they had noticed, on December 5, that the flag of their country was absent from in front of the university. 

The university staff informed them that the flags were being renewed and the new Azerbaijani flag will be hung in one week.

One week later, however, the Azerbaijani students saw that there was no flag yet, and therefore they informed the university administration that they themselves want to hang the flag of Azerbaijan.

But Islamic history lecturer, Professor Salih Pay, who is in charge of flag affairs at Uludağ University, told these Azerbaijani students that the national flag of Armenia had disappeared several days ago, they were the suspects, and if they return the Armenian flag, he will hang the flag of Azerbaijan, too.

On the next day, however, these Azerbaijani students went to the university to hang the flag of their country on their own. But they were met by a large number of police cars at the yard of the university. So the Azerbaijani students held a protest outside the university grounds.

YEREVAN. – The news, according to which Arab sheikhs are in Armenia these days with their sons, has been at the focus of Azerbaijani media, according to Haykakan Zhamanak (Armenian Times) newspaper.

 

“Among them [these sheikhs] is the elder son of the prince of Abu Dhabi, one of the most influential people in the UAE [United Arab Emirates], Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan.

“It is noted [in Azerbaijani media] that [Prosperous Armenia Party Chairman, MP, and tycoon] Gagik Tsarukyan has hosted the sheikhs, and that the visit is of friendly nature. It seems the sheikhs are in Armenia to get familiarized with the country.

“At the same time, there is a worrisome mention [in Azerbaijani media] that economic investments in Armenia also could be one of the objectives of the visit.

“And at the end, there is an addition that so far nothing is publicly announced about this,” wrote Haykakan Zhamanak.

Islamic solidarity in Azerbaijani style: Iranian media decry Baku conference

Azerbaijan is today hosting a conference titled “2017 – Year of Islamic Solidarity: Interfaith and Intercultural Dialogue”, in attendance of the country’s president Ilham Aliyev, an Armenian expert on Iranian studies wrote on Facebook.

Armen Israyelyan added that the leading Iranian daily Kayhan has published quite a remarkable commentary, questioning the statements of the Azerbaijani authorities over pursuing sincere relations with the Muslim world.

“According to the Iranian media, today’s Baku conference is another event in the Azerbaijani style serving the interests of Israel. This comes when in the Year of Islamic Solidarity declared by Baku, mosques were destroyed, religious figures continued to face repressions, due to which more than 150 Shia clerics and religious figures ended up behind bars in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has no right to organize such an event,” the expert wrote.

Is the Council of Europe giving up on human rights?
 
Efforts to reinstate Russia to Council’s parliament risk undermining the rule of law
 
 
Since 1949 the Council of Europe has been promoting human rights, democracy and the rule of law on the European continent. Originally comprising only western European countries, it later expanded to include virtually all the former members of the Soviet Union.
 
One of its central achievements is the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which offers redress to citizens who have been denied justice in their own countries.
 
Enlargement after the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991 was risky in view of the new members’ lack of democratic experience. Nevertheless, many hoped that membership would encourage them to progress along the road to democracy.
 
However, the experience with countries such as Azerbaijan and Russia has been far from a happy one.
 
Azerbaijan is today a hereditary dictatorship, while Russia is becoming an increasingly authoritarian state. Both persistently flout the fundamental principles of the organisation in almost every area of domestic policy. Russia in 2015 adopted a law giving its Constitutional Court the power to render judgments of the ECHR unenforceable in Russia.
 
Yet both countries devote much effort to presenting themselves as fully democratic and to retaining their membership of the Council of Europe.
 
Last December, the European Stability Initiative, a think-tank, alleged that, for years, Azerbaijan had been paying some members of the Council’s Parliamentary Assembly (Pace) in return for a softening of criticism. It led to the resignation of several parliamentarians, and Pace commissioned an independent external investigation to examine the accusations of “corruption and fostering of interests”.
 
Pedro Agramunt, Pace’s former president, had close links to Russian policymakers. His travel on a Russian jet to a Russian-organised meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad finally forced him to resign from the Pace leadership last October. The same month he received an honoris causa doctorate from a Kremlin-linked university.
 
Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its military aggression in eastern Ukraine led Pace to suspend Russian’s voting rights in 2014. In subsequent years, Russia refused to send delegates to the Assembly but, since mid-2016, it has shown increasing interest in readmission to Pace, which it hopes to achieve without losing face.
 
Last June, it said it would no longer pay its membership dues and was considering withdrawing completely from the Council. In parallel, it held discussions with parliamentarians who have argued in support of restoring its voting rights, such as Mr Agramunt, Michele Nicoletti and Council Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland.
 
We believe that, once it became clear that the 2014 suspension would not be reversed, there were efforts to disguise this goal under the cloak of an alleged need to “harmonise” the composition of the Assembly with the Committee of Ministers. Since Russia continues to take part in the Committee, this would imply the return of the Russian delegation to Pace with full voting rights.
 
The harmonisation “argument” lacks any substance. Since 2014, the Council has continued to function satisfactorily. Moreover, in numerous international organisations voting rights in the governing body are separate from those in the deliberative assembly, without this affecting their proper functioning (for example, the EU, the OSCE, Nato, the UN and the ILO). The fact that Russia cannot vote in Pace is the normal and intended consequence of its violations, including its aggression against Ukraine, a fellow Council member.
 
 Another worrying position is that of the Council’s secretary-general. He is pressing for Russia’s return because, he argues, it would be wrong to remove the protection of the ECHR from 140m Russian citizens.
 
What Mr Jagland omits to say is that Russia itself has withdrawn this protection. In December 2015, it ruled that only the Russian Constitutional Court could decide which judgments of the ECHR may be applied in Russia — a gross violation of the treaty establishing the Court.
 
The situation is clear: for as long as Russia does not fundamentally change course in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, Russian parliamentarians should not be allowed to vote in the Assembly. Russian troops are still present in both regions and international human rights organisations regularly report on Russia’s violations there. Moreover, Russia’s domestic policies violate the Council of Europe’s fundamental goals and principles in so many respects that this by itself should be enough to exclude it from the organisation.
 
With its 2014 resolution, the Assembly demonstrated to European citizens that it took seriously its mission to defend human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
 
 It must stick to that decision. Otherwise it will lose all credibility as the champion of fundamental European values, raising the risk of a gradual erosion of the rule of law and of legal protections for ordinary citizens, and giving support to those who amass wealth and influence through illegal means.

Azerbaijani teacher says ‘knowingly’ promoted tolerance for Armenians
 

An Azerbaijani teacher who was fired for promoting peace and tolerance towards Armenians says he took that step intentionally and is constantly teaching “tolerance, democracy, human rights and equality” to his students.

According to local media reports, Roshan Azizov recently dressed an Azerbaijani schoolgirl in an Armenian national costume, photographed her against the background of the Armenian church in Baku and published the photo on his facebook page, which caused a lot of controversy.

In a conversation with PanARMENIAN.Net , Azizov said people should treat other nations, including Armenians, the way they’d like to be treated.

“I realised that somebody had to take a step forward and say something in order to open the people’s eyes,” Azizov said, adding that the Azerbaijani people are “merciful and kind” and will understand one day that he is right.

“Armenians and our people must live in peace, it’s possible for the two nations to coexist side by side. War is not a solution, it’s an excuse.”

According to Azizov, who is a teacher of English at a Baku public school, people shouldn’t rush into making wrong decisions, as everyone deserves to be respected, regardless of their religion and nationality.

“Both Armenians and Azerbaijanis must take certain steps and learn to treat each other with respect,” Azizov said.

The Baku resident also added that the girl’s parents were aware of his intention and fully supported him in his undertaking.

“Those kids still call me and say they still love me even after I was expelled from school for no reason,” Azizov said, vowing to remain in Azerbaijan to continue straggling, even through his “life is in danger”.

“I am in a great danger, but I don’t think I will be arrested [as] the government will not make such a mistake, but i think it is also in Azerbaijan’s interest for this conflict to be settled in a peaceful way,” he said.

Ali Hasanov: Azerbaijan ready for wider autonomy to Nagorno-Karabakh
28 Dec in 14:00
15144596115a44d1db4ae903.91834249.jpg
 

Azerbaijan is ready to grant a wider autonomy to Nagorno-Karabakh and provide civil rights of the local Armenian population, Azerbaijani President`s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov said in the interview published in the Jerusalem Post.

"We are ready for a certain compromise and a constructive solution to the problem," he stressed. Ali Hasanov noted that "granting a wider autonomy to the Nagorno-Karabakh region within Azerbaijan, as well as full provision – in accordance with Azerbaija"i legislation and international legal norms – of civil, socio-economic and cultural rights of the Armenian population living there is the primary way for sustainable, effective and fair settlement of the conflict.

Azerbaijani President`s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs pointed out that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement should be approached in line with the principles of international law.

"Armenia's occupational troops must unconditionally withdraw from the territory of Azerbaijan, the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country must be restored and internally displaced persons must return to their lands,"  Ali Hasanov said stressed.

Azerbaijan: Outside Civilization - Book about Armenian monuments’ destruction with state-run plan
16:26, 29.12.2017

YEREVAN. – In early 2017, the Armenian Architecture Research Foundation published the book, entitled Azerbaijan: Outside Civilization, about the fate of the Armenian historical and cultural monuments that are located in today’s Azerbaijan.

The head of this foundation, monument specialist Samvel Karapetyan, informed about the aforesaid at a year-end press conference on Friday.

In his words, the title of this book already bespeaks its content. As per Karapetyan, this work presents how Armenian monuments in Azerbaijan have been destroyed over the past two decades by the Azerbaijani armed forces and respective state-run plan.

“All this occurred with the same scenario as in Turkey in the 1940s,” he added.

Also, this book includes the Russian church, in Golitsyno village of Azerbaijan’s Shamkir District, which is destroyed, too. 

The monument specialist added that the book was published in three languages in order to unmask Azerbaijan, which attempts to present itself to the world as a civilized country.

“This truly is a volume that tears off Azerbaijan’s mask, which [the book] shows what an anti-cultural country Azerbaijan is, and what extremist, vandalistic attitude it has, especially towards Armenian culture,” noted Samvel Karapetyan.

Azerbaijani Teacher Fired After Call for Peace with Armenia
January 11, 2018 - 2:23pm, by Lamiya Adilgizi
azerbaijan%20article_0.jpg

(Photo from Roshan Azizov's Facebook profile)

In late December, a group of men from a nationalist organization broke into a high school in Baku and accosted a teacher, who had become a social media sensation for posting a photo of one of his students dressed in traditional Armenian attire. 
 
“They humiliated me in front of my students. They called me Armenian,” the teacher, Rovshan Azizov, told Eurasianet. “They said I am an Armenian agent, that I came to Azerbaijan to destroy this country under orders from Armenia. I just wanted to show that peace is possible, and that we cannot solve this conflict by killing each other, that's all,” Azizov said.
 
Azizov said that school officials had pressured him even before the nationalists stormed the school. “They told me: 'You better go. If you stay, you put our life and the life of kids in danger,” Azizov said. “Teachers told my students that I was Armenian and that they had to stay away from me.”
 
Days later, on December 28, Azizov was fired. School officials say it wasn't because of his pro-Armenian positions, but his unorthodox teaching methods.
 
But the episode highlights the delicate balance that the Azerbaijani government is trying to maintain in its ongoing struggle with Armenia: the two states are locked in a stalemated process to determine the future of Nagorno Karabakh, a territory seized by Armenian forces from Azerbaijan in a war in the early 1990s.
 
Azerbaijani government officials insist that their dispute is with the government in Yerevan, not with the Armenian people, and they take pains to emphasize its dedication to multiculturalism and inclusion.
 
In an interview last year, Azerbaijani First Lady and Vice President Mehriban Aliyeva said that she “will never let the Azerbaijani people form an enemy image of Armenians. There was a time when these peoples lived together, drank their wine at the same table. We should go back to that time.”
 
At the same time, Azerbaijani school textbooks portray Armenians in highly negative terms to children who, for the most part, have no firsthand knowledge of Armenians. One 2012 study found that terms like “Armenian terrorist,  Armenian fascist, Armenian bandit, Armenian separatist, Armenian barbarism, enemy and adjectives such as nasty Armenian and fascist Armenian are widely used in those textbooks.” 
 
“For 25 years the government has developed ideas of revanchism and an image of the enemy, without putting forward any plan for peace,” said Orkhan Nabiyev, a peace activist. “Unfortunately, Azerbaijani society was poisoned with this, as were Armenians. So our conflict is transforming from politics to ethno-politics and we – Armenians and Azerbaijanis – have to stop it.”
 
The controversy over Azizov began in November, when he posted a photo on facebook of one of his high school students, in front of Baku's shuttered Armenian church, wearing the traditional Armenian outfit known as the taraz.
 
The photo was seized on by government-supported nationalist groups like the Female Karabakh Veterans Association and the Karabakh Liberation Movement, and spread rapidly across Azerbaijani social media.
 
Users pored through his previous social media posts, and found that he had a long record of promoting peace with Armenia. He had posted a photo with the Armenian and Azerbaijani flags flying together, with the caption “I live in Azerbaijan. I don't want war. I want peace. We don't have to shed blood,” in both Armenian and Azerbaijani. And the photo of the student was part of a larger project in which he made a series of videos with students role-playing both sides of the Karabakh conflict.
 
His videos, heavy on stage-fighting – including lots of gunplay – put off some would-be supporters.  In one Facebook discussion of the issue, Novella Jafarova, head of the Association for the Protection of Women's Rights, called one video “a disturbing lesson where kids are hitting girls with guns.”

An official statement, provided by the Baku City Education Office, said Azizov was fired because the videos were “inappropriate for education and the moral-psychological development of the students.”
 
Others have found that explanation unconvincing. Every year, on the anniversary of the Khojaly massacre – an incident in which Armenian forces killed hundreds of ethnic Azeri civilians in Karabakh -- students across Azerbaijan reenact the event using elements just as violent as those in Azizov's video, according to Zamira Abbasova, the co-founder of Tbilisi-based Neutral Zone radio, a program dedicated to building peace in the Caucasus. “If Azizov is fired from his job because of this video, then the directors of almost every school should be fired for the Khojaly skits,” Abbasova told Eurasianet.
 
Akif Nagi, the head of the Karabakh Liberation Movement, confirmed to Eurasianet in an interview that his group sent representatives to Azizov's school to confront him because of the pro-Armenian nature of his projects.
 
“We tried to explain to him how his position works in Armenia's favor,” Nagi said. “But he could not understand. He was trying to defend his views, as if he is a pro-peace person and that he will continue until the society understands him.”
 
“Who speaks of peace means he wants our territories to remain under occupation, which is unacceptable,” Nagi said.
 
Nagi also said that in December he spoke with the school's director, Tural Mirzeliyev, who promised that he would fire Azizov.  Mirzeliyev declined to comment to Eurasianet.
 
In an interview at the Boho tea house in central Baku, Azizov wore the traditional Azerbaijani arakhchin cap. But he acknowledged that he may, in fact, be Armenian.
 
He was adopted as a baby by an Azerbaijani family, and grew up believing that his birth parents were most likely Russian. But after his adoptive mother died in 2014, he started investigating, and people who knew his adoptive mother when she was younger believed she had adopted him from an Armenian family, though he has yet to confirm this.
 
“This is one of the reasons that motivated me to promote peace and reconciliation,” he said. “Many think I am enemy of my nation. They think I am dangerous. But I have never betrayed my country … I just promoted peace. Calling for peace is not a crime."
 
Azizov said he still has faith in the government to make his case right. “If they really believe Armenians and Azerbaijani people can live side by side in peace they should support me,” he said.

Naira Zohrabyan: Armenophobia is the basis of the educational program
in Azerbaijan

Yerevan January 23

Ani Mshetsyan. A deputy from the Tsarukyan bloc Naira Zohrabyan from
the rostrum of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe,
referring to the issue of xenophobia and racism in the space of the
structure, brought Azerbaijan's policy as an example.

As proof of this, Zohrabyan quoted Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev
saying that Armenians of the Diaspora and politicians who are under
their influence are the main enemy of Azerbaijan. As the MP noted, the
spiritual leader of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Allahshyur Pashizadeh,
not wanting to lag behind the head of state, also stated that lies and
betrayal are in the blood of the Armenians. In his turn, the director
of the Institute of Radiation Problems of the Academy of Sciences of
Azerbaijan, proposed organizing an earthquake in Armenia with a force
of 9 points to test the seismic stability of the Metsamor nuclear
power plant. "I understand that it is hard for European colleagues to
realize that a spiritual leader can demand blood, and a scientist can
organize an earthquake, but Armenophobia is the basis of the
educational program and the main motif of Azerbaijan's fairy tales,"
concluded Zohrabyan.

Turkish Show Radio punished for insulting the Aliyevs

Turkey’s Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK), which regulates television and radio stations, ordered station local Show Radyo to turn over five percent of is commercial revenue and halt five episodes of the show Matrax for “insulting” Azerbaijan’s president and first lady, Eurasianet.org reported, citing Turkish media.

The action stems from a late-night broadcast on January 16, when Matrax host Zeki Kayahan Coşkun teased Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev for “one of the world’s most comical approaches” for naming Mehriban Aliyeva his deputy last year and discussed corruption and abuse charges against the family.

RTÜK ruling reads that should the station broadcast any program similar in nature within the next year, it will face a maximum 10-day suspension. Further infractions could result in a cancelation of the radio station’s license.
It is reminded that previously Azerbaijan canceled broadcasts by Turkey’s Fox TV affiliate after its news anchor in 2017 aired a segment critical of Aliyeva’s appointment.

Aliyev’s speech on ‘historical lands’ ridiculed even in Azerbaijan: Armenia
251836.jpg
February 9, 2018 - 12:17 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev’s comments that "Yerevan Khanate and Zangezur-Goycha are Azerbaijan’s history lands" are ridiculed even in Azerbaijan, Armenian foreign ministry spokesman Tigran Balayan told PanARMENIAN.Net

“Aliyev’s comments are not being taken seriously even in Azerbaijan,” Balayan said on Friday, February 9.

“If we look into the Azerbaijani youth’s reaction, we’ll see them mocking him. ‘He is unable to settle the Karabakh issue, let alone Yerevan and Zangezur,’ they say.”

“Territorial claims of Azerbaijan, a country which appeared on the political map of the world just 100 years ago, are not new to us, a number of representatives of the Baku regime have repeatedly made such statements,” Balayan added.

“Aliyev’s speech at the VI Congress of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party just seeks to conceal the [country’s] foreign political failures and domestic social problems.”

Vzglyad: What is Aliyev's myth about "ancient and great Azerbaijan" for?
251900.jpg
February 10, 2018 - 16:23 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev’s comments that Yerevan is "a historically Azerbaijani territory" are interesting not just because they are complete nonsense from a scientific point of view. What is more interesting is that such marginal historiography and mythology sometimes lead to real wars, and there are many such examples in history, the Russian newspaper Vzglyad says in an article.

Aliyev on Thursday, February 8 delivered threats against Armenia, claiming that "Yerevan Khanate and Zangezur-Goycha are Azerbaijan’s history lands."

“In the coming years, we should be more active about this matter and organize presentations and exhibitions in various parts of the world,” the Azeri leader said, according to Haqqin.az.

“Yerevan is our historical land, and we, the Azerbaijanis, must return to these territories. This is our political and strategic goal, and we should reach this objective step-by-step.”

The publication notes that Aliyev's statements naturally caused a sharp reaction in Yerevan.

Armenian foreign ministry spokesman Tigran Balayan accused Azerbaijan of racism, adding that Aliyev’s comments are ridiculed even in Azerbaijan.

According to the author of the article, such a loud statement was clearly made on the eve of the presidential election in Azerbaijan, scheduled for April. In general, it did not go far from "kitchen historiography".

“Kitchen historiography" is an unscientific attempt to either artificially “lengthen” one’s history, or pouch territory, influence and make up certain features of a national character.

Armen Ashotyan: The last speech of Azeri President is like a match -
it is too funny for taking him seriously and it is dangerous to not be
treated seriously

Yerevan February 09

Ani Mshetsyan. The last speech of the President of Azerbaijan, as
Akutagawa Ryunosuke would write, looks like a match - it is too funny
for taking him seriously and it is dangerous to not be treated
seriously. About this on his page in the social network Facebook wrote
the chairman of the permanent commission of the National Assembly of
Armenia on external relations Armen Ashotyan.

"Whatever the internal logic and motivation of this anti-historical,
anti-civilization and anti-cultural opus is, one thing is clear: the
present military-political leadership of Azerbaijan is insane and
inadequate. The new height of anti-Armenian hysteria and Armenophobia
taken by Ilham Aliyev surprisingly resembles the similar rhetoric and
behavior of another "brother" by the blood - the President of Turkey
Erdogan, declaring his territorial claims to Aleppo, Mosul, Batumi,
etc. By their joint efforts, the South Caucasus region gradually
resembles not a crossroads of civilizations, but the chamber N 6. And
if Aliyev and Erdogan somewhere need to return, it is only to the
roots: the Altai and the Inner Asia", concluded the deputy.

On the eve, speaking at the 6th congress of the ruling Yeni Azerbaijan
party, Ilham Aliyev stated that the strategic and political goal of
Azerbaijanis is the return to Yerevan. Now Azeris claim Yerevan as
their homeland.

Russia weighs in on Aliyev's recent absurd rant on Yerevan



YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 16, ARMENPRESS. Russian foreign ministry
spokesperson Maria Zakharova commented on the latest statement of
Azeri President Ilham Aliyev.

During the congress of the ruling Yeni Azerbaijan party, Aliyev had
made absurd statements on “returning to Yerevan and Zangezur”.

Zakharova mentioned that Aliyev’s statements do not contribute to de-escalation.

“We’ve seen Ilham Aliyev’s statements. We know very well that the
relations of Azerbaijan and Armenia are extremely tense. These
statements obviously do not help in de-escalating the tension”, she
said.

The Azerbaijani foreign ministry in turn responded to Zakharova’s statement.

Azeri FM spokesman Hikmet Hajiyev said that Zakharova’s statement
caused “misunderstanding” in Baku.

“Taking into consideration the strategic cooperation between our
countries, we find similar attitude for the speech of the country’s
leader to be wrong”, Hajiyev said.

The Azeri President went on a absurd rant during a February 6 congress
of the country’s ruling party, claiming Yerevan and Zangezur to be
historical territories of Azerbaijan.

Armenia’s Vice Speaker of Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov slammed
Aliyev’s statement as absurd and senseless, adding that this proves
that Azerbaijan isn’t ready to solve the conflict with its neighbor
peacefully.

Azerbaijan: Land of Intolerance

By Casey Edgarian on March 7, 2018

 
 

Over the past several years, the post-Soviet petrostate of Azerbaijan has sought to promote a sanitized image of itself through a targeted media campaign. From elaborate architectural investments, such as the $250,000,000 Heydar Aliyev Center, to all-expenses-paid trips for American and European politicians, the ruling regime has used its vast oil wealth in an attempt to polish its bruised image. This comes on the heels of a slew of exposés criticizing widespread corruption  and an abominable human rights record, including the persecution of journalists in this Caspian state.

The most recent public relations stunt has been the country’s “Land of Tolerance” campaign, which claims that the Azerbaijan is a utopia for all three Abrahamic religions and the myriad ethnicities that live within its borders. The reality, however, is that the country in no way resembles  this manufactured religiously and ethnically pluralistic haven. Since the decline of the Soviet Union, the history of Azerbaijan has been rife with ethnic and religious persecution.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the beginning of anti-Armenian pogroms in the city of Sumgait. On Fe. 27, 1988, local Azerbaijani mobs broke into the houses of unarmed Armenian civilians in the city of Sumgait to murder and sexually assault them. As Thomas de Waal writes in his book Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan Through Peace and War“roving gangs committed acts of horrific savagery. Several victims were so badly mutilated by axes that their bodies could not be identified.” These crimes were committed under the direct order of the political leadership of the country in response to the peaceful demonstrations in Stepanakert and Yerevan hundreds of miles away.

The massacres and violence only ceased when the central government in Moscow declared martial law and sent in troops. These atrocities were committed solely on the basis of ethnic and religious hatred towards the local Christian Armenians, and led to the forced expulsion of hundreds of thousands of ethnic Armenians from Azerbaijani-controlled territory. Three decades later, these refugees are still unable to return to their homes, and all property that they could not carry on their backs has been stolen by the ruling regime. As a result of the government’s campaign to purge all Armenians from the land it controls, there is no substantial Armenian population left in the Republic of Azerbaijan today.

In addition to the human suffering it has caused, the Azerbaijani state has been keen to eliminate any trace of Armenian civilization on the land it controls. In the exclave of Nakhichevan—where the ruling Aliyev clan hails from—the Azerbaijani government undertook a carefully planned campaign of destruction of the Armenian stone-carved crosses, known as khachkars, in 2005. Azerbaijani soldiers and local vandals used a variety of methods to obliterate the crosses, including using them for target practice, and taking sledgehammers to the intricately carved medieval gravestones, which were registered on the UNESCO-designated Intangible Cultural Heritage list. This act was not only ethnically motivated, but also had religious undertones, as the crosses are a unique symbol of the Armenian church and Armenia’s role as the first country to officially adopt Christianity as a state religion.

The ruling regime’s intolerance is not limited to persecuting Christians. Though the vast majority of the country’s current population is Shiite Muslim, the government has put a number of restrictions on religious freedom for its citizens. Last fall, the dictatorial regime approved a bill that would ban the participation of children in the remembrance of Ashura, the most important Shiite holiday, which commemorates the slaying of a religious figure by a tyrant. In 2015, the commemorations were banned entirely in Ganja, the second largest city in the country, as well as in the city of Nardaran, and several locales in the Nakhichevan area.

Rallies by anyone opposing the ruling party are viewed with suspicion by the regime, but particularly the religious opposition, who they allege maintain support from the Iranian government. The religiously conservative city of Nardaran has been a hotbed of tension against the ruling Aliyev clan, who have maintained nearly continual power over the country since 1969. In Nov. 2015, more than six people were killed by regime forces, after they raided the city and attempted to imprison a number of its inhabitants. In Jan. 2016, the city was again plunged into chaos after the government arrested more than 60 civilians, which it claimed had been preparing for an uprising. They later sentenced 17 of them to a combined 270 years in prison.

In addition to the Shiite majority, the second largest religious group in the country, Sunni Muslims, are equally targeted by the authorities. Most Sunni Muslims are from ethnic minorities that inhabit the impoverished northern part of the country, which makes them doubly targeted by the ultranationalist regime. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Lezgi people have been among the most vocal to seek greater linguistic, religious, and cultural autonomy vis-à-vis a state that attempts to forcibly assimilate all diversity in the areas it controls. In the early 1990s, a group called Sadval was formed to promote the rights of the Lezgins. Similar to the Kurds in Turkey, the Lezgins were prohibited from learning their own language or developing their culture. This group was subsequently blacklisted by the authorities, after they claimed that Sadval had been responsible for an attack on the Baku metro.

More recently, in March 2015, the imam of the Lezgin Mosque in Baku was arrested, and five worshippers were imprisoned by the state due to their religion and the accusation that they had been selling literature that had not been previously approved by the regime. Other Sunni mosques to have been targeted by the Aliyev dictatorship include the Abu Bakr, Prophet Muhammad, Ashurbey and Mushfiqabad mosques in Baku, the Akhli Mosque in Ganja, as well as mosques in the cities of Qobustan and Shirvan. Practicing Muslims are routinely attacked by the regime, with authorities shaving and burning the beards of men, and forcing women in hijab to take off their veils. Since 2010, in particular, the indigenous inhabitants of the northern areas of Azerbaijan, the Lezgins, Avars, and Tsakhurs, all of whom belong to the Sunni branch of Islam, have been targeted by a xenophobic campaign, which seeks to paint members of those ethnic groups as being terrorists and separatists. In the governorate of Qusar, where 95% of the population is Lezgin, all posts in the local government are held by Azerbaijani Turks. This trend is similar to other parts of the country, where there is no official representation for minorities.

The Talysh, an Iranic-speaking minority in the south of the country, have also been heavily persecuted by the state. The community faces similar obstacles as other discriminated groups in Azerbaijan, but are at particular risk of assimilation, due to the majority of the population being Shiite Muslim. Like the Lezgins, the Talysh have had their linguistic and cultural rights restricted by the regime. As a result of the aggressive language policy of the Azerbaijani government, few ethnic Talysh have even basic knowledge of their own language. In 2007, Novruzali Mammadov, the editor of the Talysh-language newspaper Talyshi Sadowas arrested by the authorities under the accusation that he was spying for Iran. On Aug. 17, 2009, he died while in an Azerbaijani prison. Since his arrest, Talysh activism in Azerbaijan has been repressed to the extent that much of the movement now operates in exile. The official movement for the Talysh people, the National Talysh Movement, is now located in the Netherlands, and is headed by Alikram Hummatov, who was also formerly imprisoned in Azerbaijan for his activism.

The regime’s attempts to use public relations to whitewash widespread discriminatory practices towards religious and ethnic minorities, is yet another injustice towards them. We should not ignore the pleas of those who are discriminated against by the Azerbaijani government, but instead should encourage further democratization efforts in the country. The best way to achieve that is to put pressure on the Aliyev regime by restricting its sources of revenue and imposing targeted sanctions against the top leadership of the regime. The U.S. government should hold the regime accountable for its crimes and ensure its commitments to international agreements by granting religious and ethnic minorities their freedom. We must see through the Azerbaijani state’s smoke and mirrors. Only then can those persecuted receive the justice they deserve.
