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.

    "Azerbaijan should change its name for North Azerbaijan, which corresponds to the reality" (??? According to who? H.), said chairman of the United Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan Qudrat Hasanquliyev.
    So you admit you stole the name of the northwest region of Iran and called your counterfeit state “Azerbaijan” to steal the real Azarbaijan (Atrpatakan) and annex it to your nonentity.

    There has never been and there is no “South Azerbaijan” or “North Azerbaijan”. There's only one Real Azarbaijan (Atrpatakan) south of the Arax, yours is fake.

Where and according to what document? H.). In case we win the presidential elections, we will take all actions for this idea to come true, for our party is called "United Azerbaijan" not by accident".
    You would not inform. You never inform, all you do is misinform. The truth about you is that your “country's” name is fake, your history is fake, your geography is fake, your nationality is fake, your culture is fake, your heritage is fake, your genocide is fake, your monuments are fake, your ancestors are fake, your royal dynasties are fake, your heroes are fake, your poets are fake, your philosophers, etc., are fake. Your fake “Azerbaijan” is nothing but a genocidal, pan-Turkist extension of Turkey.
    A country named Azerbaijan north of the Arax River NEVER existed before 1918
    A nation called "Azeri" NEVER existed throughout human history

      Hellektor's research on this subject should be circulated to as many foreign journalists, diplomats, businessmen, public figures as possible. It is one of the best I have seen. But no insults should be used. In any research document the facts should speak for themselves. The readers can then decide if 'Azerbaijan' really has any claims to karabakh and Shahumian and understand the reasons why the Tatars opportunistically came up with the name 'Azerbaijan'

        it was actually Stalin who came up with the name

        A quick study of rare historical archives reveals a very cynically self-serving (and an unintentionally pan-Turanian) Russian approach to the Arran affair:

        “The name “Azerbaijan” for the Republic of Azerbaijan (Soviet Azerbaijan) was selected on the assumption that the stationing of such as republic would lead to that entity Iranian to become one…this is the reason why the name “Azerbaijan” was selected (for Arran)…anytime when it is necessary to select a name that refers to the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan, we should/can select the name Arran…”
        Quote from Bartold, Soviet academic, politician and foreign office official. See Bartold, V.V., Sochineniia, Tom II, Chast I, Izdatelstvo Vostochnoi Literary, p.217, 1963.

        This was a brilliant geopolitical move, as it now allowed for Russia, like the Ottoman Turks before them, to eventually make a grab for Iranian Azerbaijan. It is very likely that Joseph (Iosef) Stalin (born Djugashvilii – his mother was Ossetian) was complicit in this action. Stalin deliberately and repeatedly referred to many famous Iranian literary figures (such as Nizami, Ganji, Shabestari, etc.) as “great national Azerbaijani literary figures”, with no mention of their association and origins in Persia.

        Stalin’s tactic was to lump all historical figures and references from Arran and Azerbaijan as “Azerbaijanis”, pretending that these were never distinct provinces of Persia, and that neither had any cultural, linguistic or historical association with Persia.

        Stalin specifically worked at removing pre-communist (Tsarist) archives that referred to the historical designations of the Republic of Azerbaijan. This included the Russian language “Russian Encyclopedia” (printed in 1890, St. Petersburg & Leipzig, Imperial Germany – see Matini, 1989, p.455 in References) which clearly distinguished Albania/Arran from Azerbaijan in Iran.

        It was Stalin who encouraged the museums and maps of the Soviet Republic of Azerbaijan to refer to Azerbaijani cities in the Soviet Union and Iran as if they were one province. Stalin wanted no distinctions made between former Arran (Soviet Azerbaijan) and historical Azerbaijan (in Iran). He instructed his hand-picked historians (both in Soviet Azerbaijan and Russia) to revise the entire history of Arran and its association with Persia, and to blur Arran’s distinction from the historical Azerbaijan of Iran (recall the quote from Bartold we cited previously).

        By 1937, Soviet “Anthropologists” formally coined the ethnic name of "Azeris" to the Albanians/Arranis. These were published as azerbaidzantsi in Russian and rapidly translated by the Soviets to azarbaycanli, in Turkish. Stalin’s historians were instructed to engage in the process of ethno-engineering in which invented terms were used to de-Persianize those ethnic groups of the USSR that had long-standing associations with the culture and history of Persia. This has resulted in generations of people in the Republic of Azerbaijan being indoctrinated with Stalinist propaganda and falsified history. Today, a large number of the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan believe that Iranian Azerbaijan, which they call “Guney (South) Azerbaijan“, is “occupied” by Iran, and must be “liberated” and “reunited” with the Republic of Azerbaijan. These false distortions are being actively promoted among Iranian Azerbaijanis.

          ^^^yes, as I have always said "Azerbaijan" is just a province of Iran and Iranians do not recognize the arbitrarily borders that were drawn by Stalin.......hence their stand in Artsakh as well.

          Good post niner

            I don't think so. Before Stalin there was an Ottoman Turkish invasion of the Caucasus, the capture of Baku and the massacre of Armenians in the city. Azerbaijan was 'born' sometime around May 1918, with the help of Ottomans. Stalin supported the idea, yes, for the reasons below, but there is no evidence that he participated in the naming of 'Azerbaijan' in 1918

              The name Azarbaijan has deep Persian roots long before Turks and Stalin. It was given the name as one of the northwestern provinces of Iran because most of the Iranian Azaris lived in that area.

                Yes that's correct. Azarbaijan (Atrpatakan) has been around for 2000 years or more. But 'Azerbaijan', north of the Arax river, never existed until 1918

                  how did kemal do this for Turks? What did Iran get in return? The area covered by Nakhijevan had been either under Persian or Russian control after independent Armenia ceased to exist. By creating a border on Nakhijevan, Kemal brought about the prospect in the long term of Turkey threatening Armenia from the south (as well as the west)

                    Hellektor's claim is rubbish (like most of what Hellektor writes).

                    In the mid 1930s Iran ceded the eastern side of "little Ararat" to Turkey (in return, and to save face, it got from Turkey some insignificant villages further south). Turkey demanded that the territory be transferred because it needed to have the whole mountain under its control. Kurdish guerillas were able to easily move across the border at that location because Turkey and Iran were incapable of securing the border when it ran right up to the summit of the mountain. It was easier for Turkey to secure the border when it ran around the base of the mountain.

                    And, as I have said elsewhere, and regardless of the lies said in some Armenian propaganda, Turkey's border with Nakhchivan dates from the early 1920s, in the aftermath of the fall of the Armenian republic, and it arose because it followed the pre-existing border between the Russian empire and Persia (with anything south of the river that had been Russian territory becoming Turkish territory).

                      Kars, Ardahan, Ararat, Igdir, Surmalu were not held by the ottomans when war broke out. They were seized during Kemals' attack on Armenia in 1920. Nakhichevan's 'status' is supposed to be 'guaranteed' by Turkey and Russia. If Turkey played a central role in the creation of the entity called 'Nakhichevan', why is it surprising that Turkey should have an interest in creating a border with it?

                      Hellektor's thesis is that Azerbaijan is an artificial country, with a name that has no relevance to the geographic area it occupies, and is using primary sources, many of them non-Armenian, to illustrate this point.
