Baku Armenians

December 4th, 2011

" Political commentator, head of research "Atlas" Elkhan Shainoglu State Department statement called biased. According to him, the report said about the forced migration of Armenians from Azerbaijan in 1988-90, but no mention of the tragic flight of Azerbaijanis from Armenia. "Indeed, – recognizes E. Shainoglu – doors of the Armenian churches in Azerbaijan are closed but is in the mosques on the territory of Armenia, the sound of azan? In Yerevan, survived only one mosque to show its visitors, and the doors of the mosque more often closed, as wishing to pray there are very few. " "The Karabakh conflict started with violence against Azerbaijanis in Armenia – continues the analyst. – Due to the ethnic hostility in several Azerbaijani families Gugark region of Armenia have been brutally murdered, this time in Baku Armenians were still living happily in his native Baku. However, with the strengthening of the Armenian separatists in Nagorno-Karabakh, an increase in the number of cases of armed attack Armenians in the Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh residents mutual hostility had an unimaginable scale.

As a consequence, Baku Armenians faced the choice – to move to safe place to stay or live in an increasingly hostile environment. Of course, you can not deny took place in those days in Azerbaijan bloody clashes, the confrontation between the two peoples. " "Flexing the State Department only one side of the conflict does not bring respect for the American administration. Apparently, under the influence of Armenian lobby were not only several U.S. congressmen, and all but the U.S.

State Department "- summed up the E. Shainoglu. The head of the Center for Political Innovation and Technology Mubariz Ahmedoglu found the full statement of the State Department, from which, he said, the Armenians took place only a fragment of them. Here is the paragraph in full: "A strong enmity between Armenians and Azeris continues unabated, as more intensive Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Ethnic Azeris have fled from areas of the country controlled by ethnic Armenian separatists, and the surviving mosques do not apply. Hostility toward ethnic Armenians elsewhere in the country forced most of them leave for the period between 1988 and 1990, and all Armenian churches, many of which were damaged during the ethnic conflict, remain closed. As a result, from 10 000 to 30 000 ethnic Armenians who remained there, unable to attend services in their churches. " Ahmedoghlu draws attention to the difference of approaches. If "ethnic Azerbaijanis were saved escape from the regions of the country controlled by ethnic Armenian separatists ", the Armenians were" forced to leave during 1988 and 1990. " "The difference in wording once again underlines the important nuances in the resettlement Azerbaijanis and Armenians. The same can be said about the state of religious temples. If Armenians control all the territory in which previously lived in the Karabakh Armenians and Azerbaijanis, it is natural that the Armenian churches, and in Nagorno- Karabakh plains are far better condition than the mosque. As for the Armenian churches in Azerbaijan controlled territories, the Armenian church was only in Baku, her condition is well known, and it can always be verified by any international organization ", – said Mubariz Ahmedoglu.
