Azerbaijani President Thanks Muslim World For Karabakh Support

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has again thanked Muslim countries for lending unconditional support to Azerbaijan in the unresolved conflict over the breakaway Azerbaijani region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Aliyev was quoted by his office as telling the Baku ambassadors of Islamic states that the Azerbaijani government continues to enjoy that backing.

He recalled their decisive role in the passage by the UN General Assembly in 2008 of a resolution on the Karabakh dispute that was rejected by Armenia.

The nonbinding resolution referred to Karabakh as an internationally recognized part of Azerbaijan and demanded an "immediate, complete, and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian forces" from occupied Azerbaijani lands.

Only 39 UN member states, most of them having predominantly Muslim populations, voted for that document, while over 150 other countries abstained or did not vote at all. The United States, Russia, and France -- the three co-chairs of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's Minsk Group that seeks to mediate a political solution to the conflict  -- voted against the resolution.

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has likewise repeatedly accused Armenia of unleashing aggression against Azerbaijan. The foreign ministers of OIC member states most recently did so in September last year.

Speaking on behalf of the diplomats, Uzbekistan's ambassador to Azerbaijan, Ismatillah Ergashev, was reported to reaffirm this stance.

"The diplomat pointed out that Muslim countries will continue to support the just position of Azerbaijan on the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," Aliyev's office said in a statement.

The statement also quoted the Azerbaijani leader as calling for greater "Islamic solidarity" and a "higher level of mutual support."

This is what i was saying the other day, and here it is the proof. Muslim will back muslims for any reason, but Christian don't back Christians for any reason. Thats why there is Kosovo! And Cyprus should go to Turkey, South of Spain to new Moorish Republic! "Give all the lands that Muslims ever captured back to them it's theirs, by god's will" would say a muslim.

This is no what it seems to be. The conflict between Armenians and Azeri Turks is not religious, but civilizational. Turks represent nomadic civilization and their culture is opposite of many sedentary Muslim civilizations like Persians.

Many Muslim foreigners who visited Azerbaijan will tell you that it's not a Muslim country. Azeri Turk people en mass are not religious after 70 years of Communism and value clans and modern life with all its excesses over Islam.

The native peoples of the Azeri Turk occupied lands (Tolysh, Lezgi, Tsakhurs, etc.) are subjected to forced assimilation and repressions based on their religion (sunny vs. nominal Shia Azeri Turks) or language. To add to that, the ruling clan of Aliyevs is Kurdish naturally in conflict with the Big Brother Sunny Turkey. Aliyevs installed their Kurdish clansmen in every town and village and discriminate against Azeri Turks as well as the native sedentary populations. They attacked Lezgi masque in Baku and demolished or closed hundreds of other mosques around the country. There are many telling videos on YouTube showing the real treatment practicing Muslims receive in Azerbaijan.

Taxpayer & HartR, you`re !00% right,but who is the Big Brother of ilhan`s `modern` azeristan, cold turkey`s oh,so moderate ``islamist``erdoganistan??? ?What`s the name of their ruling party and where do they get their arms, billions of $$$$$ & all kinds of support -from western cedentary `civilizations`,plus some new-fangled eastern ones-soviet,chinese,etc.`Moral `support between mafia -clan gang-land `states seems to be OK for the western `civilization` you live in,but your good life is paid for with the blood of tens of millions.A famous russian-jewish satrap `philosopher` used tosay: One day the capitalists are going to sell us the rope we will hang them with.The west is crediting its own demise in its attitude towards the `muslims`,nomadic or sedentary.And this time all of us will become nomads on our final journey to Kingdom come.

Business as usual!? Turks and Azeries are known or widely recognized as a model of authority for having Double standard mode. (changing color whenever or wherever is in their advantage)
They want to be more European then European them-self. They stop using Islamic Alphabet, it is not cool to have Islamic writing, Latin is the way to go now.
It is not cool to wear Hijab (headscarf), they banned it by force.
They have an excellent relation-ship with Israel and receive all type of military support.
One is a NATO member, the other one is dreaming about it.
Arresting Islamic Party members, during the trial, removing defendants' supporters wearing head scarves.
Now he needs help, who better than Islamic world, there are always suckers Like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Libya, Oman, Somalia, Bahrain and Sudan, all terrorist connected countries.
He is calling for greater “Islamic solidarity” and a “higher level of mutual support.”

Another brilliant move by Ilham. The entire world loathes anything to do with religious based conflict, and now Ilham thanks Islamic countries for their support. He is making the NKR conflict a religious conflict instead of distancing himself from such connections. Well, with friends like Erdogan, I guess the stupidity rubs off eventually. Erdogan condemns what he calls Armenian occupation of NKR, but then almost half of Cyprus is occupied by Turkey. Erdogan condemns violence against Uyghurs and attack of Israeli soldiers on Turkish flotilla but his country has the blood of millions of innocent people on its hands. Erdogan and Aliyev should put their heads together an make one ass out of it.
