On 23Dec.1947,Stalin signed a resolution by the Council of Ministers of the USSR on the resettlement of Azerbaijani kolkhoz members and other Azerbaijanis from the Armenian SSR to the lowlands of the Kur & Araz rivers.On 10Mar.1948,a further resolution on resettlement was signed.
Textual study of the #resolutions by the Council of Ministers of the #USSR shows that they had complete disregard for #human and civil #rights. #Azerbaijanis were removed, not from certain territories, as stated, but from the whole of #Armenia.
It becomes clear that the aim was to oust all #Azerbaijanis from #Armenia. According to the last, 11th, Article of the #resolution dated 23 December 1947, it was intended to settle foreign #Armenians in Armenia in place of the deported #Azerbaijanis.

Not only has the #Azerbaijani regime desecrated the Ghazanchetsots Cathedral they’ve also destroyed apartment buildings around it… making it impossible for #Armenians to return. The building in red is the one I lived in back in October 2019 with my host family… #StopAliyev

Just read the @sfchronicle article by @RepAdamSchiff & @RepSpeier. First, during decades in Congress, these esteemed politicians have never said a single word about illegal occupation of 20% of #Azerbaijan’s lands by #Armenia & 1 million forcibly displaced #Azerbaijanis. 1/13
Invasion, total ethnic cleansing & nearly 30-year-long occupation of #Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory by #Armenia was well-documented, incl. by @UN Security Council resolutions and successive US administrations, starting with #Clinton Administration. 2/13
Brutal massacres against #Azerbaijani civilian population by Armenian troops, incl. the #Khojaly Genocide of 1992, which @HRW called the #largest massacre in the conflict#, are also well documented. 3/13

1) Let’s talk about #Nakhichevan - a lost homeland. ImageImageImageImage
2) The the name "Nakhichevan" in #Armenian literally means "the place of first descent", a Biblical reference to the descent of Noah's Ark on the adjacent Mount #Ararat. Armenian tradition says that Nakhichevan was founded by Noah. Image
3) The region was at the center of the ancient Kingdom of #Armenia (858 BC-428 CE). During the invasion by Sassanid #Persian Shah Shapur II (r. 309-379) he removed 2,000 Armenian and 16,000 #Jewish families from #Nakhichevan (360-370 CE). ImageImage

On Nov. 25, #Armenia handed the #Kalbajar district back to #Azerbaijan, in line with the Nov. 10 agreement, which also ended the 44-day-war in #Karabakh. Here is a THREAD
Thus a 27-year-long illegal occupation of #Kalbajar came to an end. Tens of thousands of forcibly displaced #Azerbaijani residents of Kalbajar will finally be able to return home.
The invasion and total ethnic cleansing of #Kalbajar by #Armenia in early April 1993 was one of the most crucial moments and darkest chapters in the #Armenia-#Azerbaijan conflict.

My article published by @Tabletmag. I talk about how #Jews and #Muslims in #Azerbaijan have always stood together, through thick and thin, including during the #MarchGenocide of 1918 and two #Karabakh wars…
On Nov. 10, the 44-day war between #Azerbaijan and #Armenia came to an end, as Armenia agreed to a ceasefire and to withdraw from occupied territories. For the past 30 years, Armenia had occupied 20% of Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory, forcibly displacing 800,000 #Azerbaijanis.
#Shusha is where one of our most decorated and beloved war heroes, #AlbertAgarunov, fought bravely and lost his life to an #Armenian sniper in 1992. His story is both the story of an #Azerbaijani #Jewish war hero and also the story of #Muslim-#Jewish #coexistence and friendship

25/ More old maps from 19th century showing zero trace of #Armenia. Meanwhile, #Karabagh and even #Shusha are clearly indicated. #Azerbaijan #Armenia #StopArmenianLies #StopArmenianOccupation

26/To clarify: Armenien is indicated on some of the maps=name of the area. There is no sign of the "ancient Artsakh". If there was a "country of Armenia" and it was not just an area,there should have been the "ancient Artsakh". But since there is no "ancient Artsakh", Armenia=lie
27/ Additionally, Azerbaijan was the name of the modern republic only after 1918. So, "Azerbaijan name is not on these maps" argument is moronic. Empire names change. The Turks who built the empire are still the Turks. Not Armenians... 😄

It's not hard for me to mesh my support for #Armenia in the #Nagornokarabakh conflict with being a western-raised and trained #Humanrights lawyer. The short answer is that I wish to stop #EthnicCleansing. The long answer is below. (1/14)
First, I reject that neutrality is the "proper" response. Neutrality is appropriate when one is ignorant. But choosing to remain in ignorance isn't praiseworthy. It is more intellectually honest to learn and draw a conclusion. (2/14)
This article shows how one can have a thoughtful "both sides" discussion instead of the thoughtless one we typically see from int'l media and orgs.… (3/14)
