#OnThisDay Sep 15, 1918, the Ottoman Army of Islam captured #Baku. With the ethnic #Azerbaijan'i Turks at their side, they carried out a systematic massacre of the #Armenia'ns in the city, during which its estimated that 15,000 to 20,000 Armenians died.

#Turkey #ArmenianGenocide
A terrible panic in Baku ensued once the Turks entered the city. The Armenians crowded the harbor in a frantic effort to escape. Regular Ottoman troops were not allowed to enter the city for 2 days, so that the local irregulars 鈥 bashibozuks 鈥 would conduct looting and pillaging.
Later, Ottoman troops participated alongside the irregulars & the Azeris of #Baku in the plundering, who then turned their fury against the city's #Armenia'n population. Calls by the German officers to treat the local population with leniency were ignored by Ottoman commanders.

I've been reading about the 1905 clashes between Armenians & Azerbaijanis, the first known inter-ethnic confrontation between the two, and reaffirmed my conviction that the disagreements & subsequent #Armenia-#Azerbaijan wars are the product of the 'divide et impera' policy 1/10
One of the reasons that triggered the bloody events was the underrepresentation of the Muslim population in local city councils. Although the Muslim population of #Baku accounted for around 80% of the electorate, they were entitled to less than a third of the seats. 2/10
Without a significant #Russia'n population in the region, Russians chose to rely on #Armenia'ns as Christians, promoting them to administrative roles. After a while though, seeing the rise of national sentiments among them, they did the contrary, this time betting on Muslims 3/10

Die staatliche aserbaidschanische Nachrichtenagentur Azertag hat ein neues Sonderprojekt 眉ber die "Sieg-Strategie". Es zeigt die Strategie des #Aserbaidschan|ischen Pr盲sidenten #Aliyev zu #Bergkarabach seit 2003.

Es ist gruselig, absto脽end, aber auch aufschlussreich. Image
So beschreibt die Seite etwa, wie #Aliyev dem #Europarat 2004 versprechen musste keinen Krieg zu f眉hren um Mitglied werden zu d眉rfen - w盲hrend er gleichzeitig einen Krieg gegen #Armenien und #Bergkarabach plante.

Das sieht nicht so gut f眉r den #Europarat aus, gelinde gesagt. Image
Die Seite zeigt auch mit #Aliyev-Zitaten von 2004 auf, dass #Aserbaidschan sich immer auf einen Krieg vorbereitet hat und nie an Verhandlungen interessiert war, bei denen ihre Maximalposition nicht das Ergebnis ist.

In Europa nahm man solche Zitate bis 2020 nicht wirklich ernst Image

In two weeks from now, the first #UEFA Euros match in #Baku will kick-off when #Wales meets #Switzerland.

The UK FCO currently warns of unexploded material, terrorists attacks to be "likely" and high COVID rates. I'd say all these risks are low, but there are other issues:
According to @ILGAEurope, #Azerbaijan is the most homophobic country in Europe. So better don't go, if you are part of the #LGBTQI community 馃彸锔忊嶐煂堭煆筹笍鈥嶁毀锔

#Armenian Churches of #Baku

Labeled as red dots (south to north)
1) Holy Mother of God in the Inner City (Icheri Shehir)
2) Saint Gregory the Illuminator
3) Saints Thaddeus & Bartholomew
4) Holy Resurrection Chapel in the cemetery
5) Holy Translators in Haykashen (Ermenikend)
The Church of the Holy Mother of God was located in Baku's Walled City (Icheri Shehir). It was built in 1797-1799, although a church has been mentioned here as early as the 13th century in Armenian and Persian sources. It was destroyed in 1992 and a cafe stands in its place.
You can see the #Armenian Church of the Holy Mother of God again here in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, standing next to #Baku's infamous #MaidenTower.

Die #AserbaidschanConnection in DE betrifft nicht nur die Ebene der Abgeordneten, sondern auch die Ebene ihrer wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiter. In diesem Fall Heiko Langner, B眉ro @HESommer. 脺ber Sommers auff盲llige Aussagen zu #Armenien und #Aserbaidschan berichteten wir mehrfach.
Heiko Langner f盲llt durch seine N盲he zu aserbaidschanischen Lobby-Organisationen auf. Zu nennen sind hier das 鈥濧lumniportal #Aserbaidschan鈥 oder das 鈥濧zerbaijan Student Network鈥 (mit SOCAR-Funktion盲ren im Vorstand). Bindeglied ist stets: Asif Masimov, der gut vernetzt ist.
Asif Masimov und Heiko Langner kennen sich seit mind. 2014. Langner war Masimovs Betreuer w盲hrend seines IPS-Praktikums im Bundestag bei den #Linken.

Langner war wiss. Mitarbeiter bei den ehem. Linken-MdBs Hakki Keskin (Leugner des Genozids an Armeniern) und bei Katrin Kunert.

- proximity to Iran and relatively easy mobility of operatinal it and through it (air and land)
