  • Armenians should counter Azerbaijan’s pressure on Israel to deny the Genocide | Public Radio of Armenia
    most Western groups including the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe OSCE refused to monitor Azerbaijan s Parliamentary elections because of restrictions imposed by Baku four Israeli Knesset members rushed to Azerbaijan to show their support for Aliyev s despotic regime The Israeli delegation led by former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman now chairman of the Israel Azerbaijan Parliamentary Group included ex ambassador to the U S Michael Oren Sofa Landver and Yoel Razbozov The Jerusalem Post reported that Lieberman as Foreign Minister worked to strengthen Israeli ties with Azerbaijan and quoted him saying in Baku that it is an important country and a good friend of Israel Even in the time of the Soviet Union Azerbaijan was known to treat its Jewish community well and there is no anti Semitism there We must continue strengthening our relations with Azerbaijan Azernews also quoted him telling the Azeri Elections Media Center that Azerbaijan is an example of democracy stability and successful foreign policy Most knowledgeable people would dismiss such ridiculous and false statements One wonders why the former Foreign Minister is so anxious to whitewash Azerbaijan s past and present practices of anti Semitism After the four Knesset members return from Baku they should be asked to disclose the lavish gifts they must have received in appreciation for their rubber stamping of the fraudulent elections in Azerbaijan Not surprisingly Aliyev maintained its tight grip on power after his ruling party retained its majority in parliament while the mainstream opposition boycotted last Sunday s elections The Jerusalem Post reported that Azerbaijan is considered the Muslim country friendliest to Israel and the two countries have close ties and significant trade Azerbaijan is Israel s biggest oil provider and trade between the two countries reaches 5 billion more than with France In recent years Lieberman then president Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Moshe Ya alon visited Baku In pursuing its arms for oil policy Israeli officials have conveniently ignored Azerbaijan s gross violations of human rights lack of freedom of speech and jailing of journalists and activists including Leyla Yunus head of the Baku based Institute for Peace and Democracy and investigative reporter Khadija Ismayilova of Radio Free Europe While it might be somewhat understandable that Israel and Azerbaijan are pursuing their self interests no matter how reprehensible the means Armenia must also pursue its own national interests and counter the actions of any country that jeopardizes its security and questions the Genocide The Armenian government should make crystal clear to Israeli officials that by selling multi billion dollar sophisticated weapons to Azerbaijan they become responsible for putting at risk thousands of Armenian lives Azerbaijani officials have publicly announced that they intend to use the arms acquired from Israel to attack Nagorno Karabagh Artsakh and Armenia Lastly Armenia should warn Azerbaijan that its unwarranted denials of the Armenian Genocide and pressures on other countries such as Israel to join its denialist cause would further antagonize Armenians making it impossible for them to accept any
