WikiLeaks: Not All Quiet on the Turkey-Azerbaijan Front

The documents revealed Azerbaijan’s President, Ilham Aliyev’s, displeasure with Turkish policies, especially the Turkey-Armenia protocols process. In an article published Wednesday in Today’s Zaman, Amanda Paul examines this relationship and what the documents show to be a fragile alliance between Turkey and Azerbaijan.

    The people of of today’s Republic of Turkey and Azerbaijan are one nationality. They were both tribal herdsmen living in the middle of Mongolia, Asia about some 8-900 years ago, when they charged into the Armenian Highlands of Western Armenia and Greece to the detriment of both the Armenian nation and the Greek nation. I have one thing to say about Ilham Aliyev as he is; “abu tawil ahbal”.

    Hye, the Turk leaderships and the Azeri leaderships – two negatives on the same page, same mentality,
    even destroying the Djulfa cemetery… thus killing Armenians buried for centuries – again,and again!
    True to the Turk and the Azeris mentality who are still in pursuit of the ‘elimination’ of the Christian Armenians today – whether living or in their graves over the centuries… A Turkey and the Azeris have joined in their evil efforts to ‘eliminate’ Armenians even on their own lands of today. – the Turk and Azeris
    pursue the ‘elimination’ of the Armenians – just because Armenians are Armemians. Too, by the
    ‘elimination’ of the Armenians (as was the Djulfa cemetery) thus Turk/Azeris seek to erase world history of the existence of the Armenians – thus the Turk and the Azeris (who have not any history of their own – as leaderships who commit and pursue Genocides) and the Turk and the Azeri shall then, if successful in these endeavors, truly deserve one another… and they still shall have not been able to join the
    civilized nations of the world… still uncivilized, still destructive forces on our planet earth. Manooshag
