    just like old times, the true colors are showing. It is ok Armenians, no need to panic. We just need to organize our all sources to combat them. If we do that we can still be on top. The key is to stay focused and not to give up.

    I’m sure they will oblige and as for Azerbaijan being a “tolerant” country ,please note that the recent interogation related to eurovision voting took place on the moon!

    All Armenians and non Armenians should take serious notice of what Israel’s Consul General in Los Angeles,Yaakov Dayan, has called on Jewish communities across the United States to support advance Azeri interests in the United States.

    You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to realize what we are up to and plan to take serious steps in order to neutralize this threat to us.

    This attitude has its roots deep in Israel . Mr Yaakov Dayan gets his orders from his laic and clerical bosses.
    Same attitude by jewish organisations to prevent the recognition of the 1915 GENOCIDE by important governments . They are protecting their interests (OIL RICH AZERBAIJAN!!!) . Getting stabbed in the back
    by them , of all the people !!! It is disgusting !!!
