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.

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.

    Azerbaijani Army Officer to be Sentenced on April 13

    08/03/2006 00:12

    Yesterday, the trial on Azerbaijani Army officer Ramil Safarov, who is accused of murdering Armenian officer Gurgen Margarian, was continued in the Hungarian capital Budapest.

    Lawyer Adil Ismayilov, representative of Safarov’s family informed APA from Budapest that the result of the fourth forensic medical examination on Ramil Safarov was announced in the trial. Experts concluded that Safarov was conscious when he committed murder.

    The opposite side solicited for repeated examination. However, the court rejected the solicitation, and declared that the result of the examination was adopted. So, the process was over. Ramil Safarov will be sentenced in the trial on April 13.

    Safarov underwent three forensic medical examinations by experts. As the first examination was conducted in Russian, which Safarov does not know, the result was dismissed. The opinions of experts on the rest two medical examinations were that Safarov was unconscious when he committed murder

    Indiffence Of Europe To Case Of Ramil Safarov May Cause Mistrust To Eu In Armenia


    YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 18.ARMINFO. D. Mouradian, Secretary of RA National
    Academy of Science, and film director Albert Mkrtchian express hope
    that the decision of the Azeri National Democrates to declare murderer
    Ramil Safarov "man of year"doesn't reflect the opinion of all the
    Azer society.

    "The Armenian officer Gourgen Margarian was killed with an ax
    neither in Soumgait nor Baku, but in the very center of Europe and
    the indifference of Europe to this case may cause the mistrust of
    the Armenian people to them,"David Mouradian said.

    He stated that NATO should have secured the safety of Margarian in
    Budapest, but the North Atlantic Alliance displayed total indifference
    to the case."How can we trust the initiatives of the West in the
    Nagorno Karabakh issue and trust the security of NKR Armenians to
    the Western structures, when they remain indifferent to the murder
    of a sleeping officer?" Mouradian put a rhethoric question.

    Ramil Safarov Not Pride but Shame of Azeri Nation

    11.02.2006 00:20 GMT+04:00
    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ The defense of Ramil Safarov charged of murder of Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan build their line insisting that the intellectual background of the accused is very poor, representative of the RA MOD in the Budapest court Hayk Demoyan told PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. In his words, the third and forth medical-forensic examination proved it. “It’s interesting that during the examination Safarov said Gurgen was handsome and charming. It’s unclear what he meat by saying this. Nevertheless Safarov was found sane with low intellectual facilities,” Demoyan noted. In his words, in Turkish military camps Ramil Safarov was trained to kill by all means, with axe as well.

    As for the zombied Azeri soldiers in Turkish military camps Hayk Demoyan reminded the words of Azeri political scientist Arif Yunusov who said “other soldiers and officers will fight with Armenian army.” Most likely Yunusov was speaking of the military for whom Ramil Safarov is exemplary. At the same time the RA MOD representative emphasized that the Azeri politicians who declare Ramil Safarov the hero of the nation do not understand that he dishonored his country in the entire world.

    Azerbaijan Destroys Medieval Armenian Christian Cemetery, Group Says

    Thursday, 26 January 2006

    BosNewsLife, Hungary
    Jan 27 2006

    Armenian Christians still recall the legacy of the 1915 genocide.

    BAKU/BUDAPEST (BosNewsLife)-- The government of Azerbaijan has
    destroyed an "irreplaceable" medieval Armenian Christian cemetery in
    the Djulfa region of the country's Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic,
    amid growing tensions in the area, an influential religious rights
    group said Thursday, January 26.

    Washington-based International Christian Concern (ICC), claimed
    "the act of cultural cleansing" resembled the spirit of the Armenian
    Genocide, which it called "an attempt by Muslim countries in the region
    to erase all memory of a thriving Christian culture that existed in
    the Caucasus area since the fourth century."

    Azeri officials denied its forces destroyed the cemetery saying
    that these statements "simply target misleading the international
    community," local media reported.

    The head of the President's Office International Relations Department,
    Novruz Mammadov, accused Armenians of trying to misinform the US
    Senate and House of Representatives. "The truth is that 20 percent of
    Azerbaijan's territory has been leveled," he said in published remarks.

    Despite a 1994 cease-fire, Azerbaijan has yet to resolve its conflict
    with Armenia over the Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh enclave which
    is largely Armenian populated. Azerbaijan lost 16 percent of its
    territory, and must support some 571,000 internally displaced persons
    as a result of the conflict, according to the US Central Intelligence


    However ICC suggested that it has evidence that the government's
    actions are "on the same level as the Taliban's destruction of the
    Bamiyan Buddha statues (in Afghanistan) in 2001 and the desecration
    of Jewish cemeteries throughout Europe."

    "The shocking videotape of the systematic demolition of this treasure
    of world Christian heritage documents for all to see a deliberate
    act of hatred against a long-persecuted Christian nation and - more
    broadly - an affront to all Christians around the world."

    It said that in mid-December of 2005, roughly 200 Azerbaijani
    soldiers "were caught on videotape using sledgehammers to demolish
    a sacred site of the Armenian Apostolic Church." It claimed that the
    "shocking videotape of the systematic demolition of this treasure of
    world Christian heritage documents for all to see a deliberate act of
    hatred against a long-persecuted Christian nation and - more broadly -
    an affront to all Christians around the world."

    The cemetery dates back to the 7th Century and was once home to as
    many as 10,000 intricately carved stone-crosses known as khatchkars,
    ICC said.


    "We are profoundly troubled by the Azerbaijani government's desecration
    of the Armenian Christian cemetery in Djulfa -particularly the
    destruction of irreplaceable carved stone crosses, many over a
    thousand years old," added ICC president Jeff King in a statement
    obtained by BosNewsLife.

    The ICC said the alleged attack followed previous demolitions in 1998
    and 2002 and "effectively destroyed this site - erasing forever a
    true treasure of world heritage."

    ICC also criticized the US State Department for allegedly remaining
    silent over the issue. The State Department recently acknowledged
    however that "animosity toward ethnic Armenians" has "forced most
    Armenians to emigrate, and all Armenian churches, many of which
    were damaged in riots that took place more than a decade ago, (have)
    remained closed."

    US officials estimate that 20,000 ethnic Armenians have been unable
    to attend services at their traditional places of worship because of
    the closures.


    ICC suggested that the destruction of the cemetery and apparent
    government pressure on Armenian Christians resembled the atmosphere
    that preceded the 1915 genocide when over 1.5 million Armenian,
    Hellenic, and Assyrian Christians were allegedly killed as Azerbaijan
    and Turkey "sought to eradicate the historical memory of the thriving
    Christian presence in the Caucasus and Anatolia."

    The Christian Armenian legacy in this part of the world dates back
    to the apostles Thaddeus and Bartholomew and, later, Armenia's
    conversion to Christianity as a state religion in the year 301,
    experts say. Turkey, which wants to join the European Union, has
    come under international pressure to acknowledge the mass killing of
    Armenians from 1915 as a "tragedy."

    France passed a law officially recognizing the Armenian genocide in
    2001, cooling relations with Turkey and jeopardizing a major arms
    deal. At least another 14 nations, including Switzerland, Russia
    and Argentina, also classified the killings as genocide. (ICC can be
    reached via website: With BosNewsLife's

    Almost qualified to go under "Ridiculous News"

    2006-01-20 19:19

    Azerbaijan News Service
    Jan 20 2006

    Everyone ought to be responsible before his conscience for writings
    about Ramil Safarov, accused in assassination of Armenian serviceman.

    Thus this is not the issue of Ramil Safarov only, but that of the
    whole Azerbaijan. Sahib Safarov, Ramil Safarov's father is seriously
    worried about recent articles published in some papers. "Recently a
    very insulting campaign has launched about my son. They say Ramil
    Safarov's deeds undermine Azerbaijan's reputation. But I think
    their writings undermine the image of Azerbaijan. Was it important
    to publish such writings ahead of Ramil's court session? " Father
    safarov highly appreciates the intended visit of television chiefs,
    PMs, and NGO representatives to Hungary. But he cannot understand
    what stands behind the recent anti-Ramil articles in some Mass Media
    representatives. "I believe that those articles have been written by
    order. But I cannot understand who is targeted in them" He says those
    writings against Ramil Safarov are against Azerbaijan, as well. Thus,
    he addressed zto mass media workers as a father: "The Court sessions
    are still on. Let those who fell dislikes towards Ramil Safarov
    retain their ambitions after the court. May be the Court will release
    Ramil. But those writings can serve as a basis for the Judge that
    Azerbaijan accuses itself. If they consider themselves Azerbaijanis
    let them give up their anti-Ramil campaign." Ramil Safarov's mother,
    Nubar Safarova also shares her husband's ideas. She reminded that in
    one of the court sessions in Budapest Court the Armenian lawyer had
    outlined with confidence that they would win the case. The lawyer
    added that the defeat of Azerbaijan in the court means Azerbaijan's
    defeat. In order not to suffer another defeat, Azerbaijan ought to
    back Ramil Safarov with all its might.

    Trial Of Ramil Safarov To Be Continued On 21 February


    Azeri Press Agency, Azerbaijan
    Jan 17 2006

    BUDAPEST. Court process was held in Pesht region court on the
    claim raised by prison guards against officer of Azerbaijan Army
    Ramil Safarov who is accused of murdering Armenian officer Gurgen
    Markaryan today.

    APA was informed by Azerbaijani embassy in Hungary. The associates of
    the embassy also attended the trial presided by Judge Ms. Tot Dender.

    The judge announced the names of the lawyer and four public prosecutors
    in the process lasted for an hour and the indictment in Turkish was
    presented to Ramil Safarov. The Embassy informed that, it was decided
    to continue the trial on 21 February.

    It should be noted that, the prison guards wanted Ramil Safarov to
    give telephone card on June 19, 2004. Ramil Safarov who didn't know
    Hungarian couldn't understand the guards and it resulted in conflict
    among them. And 8 policemen used violence on him in the end. Though
    the lawyers of Ramil Safarov appealed to the court after this event,
    the court put an end to the case basing that there was not any proof.

    The opposite side raised a claim stating that the Azerbaijani officer
    put up resistance to the government representative later on. Ramil
    Safarov's rights are protected by newly appointed Hungarian lawyer
    Clara Fisher in this case.
