Armenians Protest Israeli Weapon Sales to Azerbaijan


Jerusalem (ArmRadio)—The Armenian community in Jerusalem today protested Israel’s sale of weapons to Azerbaijan, which are being used against Armenians in Nagorno Karabakh region, reports.

Nasser Atta, a producer for ABC News in the Middle East, tweeted some photos and videos from the demonstration (video above), which occurred in front of the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

“Israel supports Azerbaijan’s state terror,” read one sign being held aloft by a protester.

There was a separate protest by Armenian residents of Israel last week at Jerusalem’s Monument of the Armenian Genocide.

    The apartheid state of Israel with its atrocious human rights records is the worlds 3rd largest supplier of weapons, they sell to any group including isis as long as they get paid. They are responsible for much terror globally.

    Israel has been backing up the Turks for most of the past century in their (Turks’) murderous policies against Christians and others. What else is new, except that now it is confronted with loud voices of protest right in its own house (and not just by Armenian ethnics). Mr. Peres, Mr. Netanyahu, are you listening?
