Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    Many Lezgins have Russian citizenship already.

    There are actually dispute between Russia and Azerbaijan on 2 Lezgin villages wich are in Azerbaijan but the population are Russian citizenship.

      You must be out of your mind to call a Pure Caucasian people as Turkic.

      Avars are the biggest ethnic group of Dagestan, btw.

      We were Orthodox before converting but all Maaruls are Muslim now.
      Of course!

      I have just learned a new thing about Avars in Caucasia

        Aslanov, I hope the Avar, Tats, Talish, Lezghins get their own states one day in what is "Azerbaijan". The Azeris sent many of your innocent young men to die on the front in Artsakh while the Azeri boys were safe at home.

          The Talish made a half-hearted attempt but with more Russian and Armenian support, we can perhaps one day help the Avars, Talish, Lezghins.

            Lezgins, Avars and Tsakhurs of Azerbaijan Demand Autonomy
            by Jack Manuelian

            This past June 18, some minorities in Azerbaijan circulated a petition complaining about their dire condition in their historical lands inside Azerbaijan.

            The Russian language website >rossia3.ru< reported the petition as stating "Lezgins, Avars and Tsakhurs who live in their historical motherland in Balakan, Zaqatala, Qax, Saki, Qabala, Qusar, Quba and Xacmaz districts of the Azerbaijani Republic say that they are in danger of being exterminated physically and deported by force. The Azerbaijani Republic was established on Turkish bayonets for the first time in history in 1918, and part of our motherland was also incorporated into it by force. The protests of indigenous Lezgins, Avars and Tsakhurs, who did not want to be part of a Turkic state, were brutally suppressed and drowned in blood. This was occupation. The Soviet authorities, which came to Azerbaijan in 1920, did not wish to investigate our problems and satisfy the aspirations and hopes of our nations, and left our motherland within the Azerbaijani SSR [Soviet Socialist Republic]. The 70 years of Soviet rule were a real nightmare for our peoples. We were not allowed to read and write in our native languages, our schools were closed and we became the only peoples in the Soviet Union who were forced to pay for their education at high schools, colleges and institutions of higher education. The pages that mentioned our culture and history were taken out of textbooks. Finally, we were simply excluded from the demographic statistics of Azerbaijan. We simply 'didn't exist', although in reality the total number of Lezgins, Avars and Tsakhurs in the Azerbaijani SSR exceeds one million."

            -Furthermore the petition says that After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Azerbaijan violated international law and Soviet legislation by failing to hold a referendum to allow ethnic minorities to decide their own fate-

            The petition continues: "Thus, we state: throughout the 20th century, Azerbaijan occupied our territories twice and usurped power in it. Azerbaijan aims to completely oust Lezgins, Avars and Tsakhurs from our motherland...Azerbaijan continues its policy of ethnic cleansing and Turkicization against our motherland. The lion's share of positions in the leadership of our districts, especially in the law-enforcement bodies, are held by ethnic Azerbaijanis recently settled in our territories. The police regularly carry out large-scale operations, after which representatives of our intelligentsia disappear without trace in Azerbaijani prisons. On 25 March of this year, Azerbaijan's law-enforcement agencies launched a large-scale operation in Lezgin-populated towns and villages in Qusar and Xacmaz districts and arrested religious figures, heads of youth organizations, representatives of the intelligentsia, journalists, men and women - hundreds of people. Azerbaijan has in fact declared a war on the indigenous population of the country." for their part those minorities are asking for autonomy for their nations on their historical motherland occupied presently by Azerbaijan.

            An Azeri writer, Rashid-Oglu, reflected the general fears of Azerbaijan by saying "Separatist moods in these ethnic groups may seriously harm stability in Azerbaijan. Note that regions densely populated by ethnic minorities are located near Azerbaijan's borders: Lezgins on the Russian border, Kurds on the Armenian border and the Talis on the Iranian border, which simplifies the task. Russian ideologists suppose that these minorities can either break away from Azerbaijan completely and merge with neighbouring countries or create their own political establishments under the protection of neighbouring countries. All this seems quite realistic especially in the light of the rapidly changing geopolitical situation in the world and in our region.

            "The situation surrounding the Lezgins in Azerbaijan resembles the situation surrounding Ossetians in South Ossetia who are also separated from most their fellow countrymen living in Russia. Many in Baku prefer to ignore the problem of ethnic separatism. Well, it once had deplorable consequences for our country in Karabakh. It is believed that as Baku becomes more friendly with Washington, Russia will play the ethnic card more actively and the situation will only deteriorate"

            Clearly Azerbaijan has no future and will evanesce unless it changes to a humanitarian and democratic entity, caring and sacrificing itself for the betterment of its minorities and inhabitants without any discrimination.

              It's such a shame that the azeri government brainwashed
              many lezgins to fight for the azeris, while the rest of the azeri
              boys were at home fattening their stomachs'.

                Its a psychotic military dictatorship, that's just as bad (if not worse) than North Korea. Does any more have to be said?...There is an Azeri elite that gets to live, and the rest of the Azeri's are cannon fodder.

                      It is the Turkic people that claim them, even those that live in Azerbaijan. Simply a lie. They do have a big chunk of Turkic words in their language, but it is a Caucasian language.

                      Nice image!

                      There was a discussion show on AMGA channel. They talked about the Lezgies and Avars and other people originating to the Caucasian Albania.

                      Speaking of a map on a first page. It is a good map, but there are maps available for the time the Turks were not even there as well.
