  1. In May 2018, the U.S. and its allies helped organise a “colour-revolution” in Armenia that installed the pro-Western Nikol Pashinyan as prime minister. Immediately Armenia began accelerating its pivot toward the West. Over the next few years, Azerbaijan, with the support of Turkey, began making territorial demands that included claims to Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) and portions of Armenia proper, including the Zangezur Corridor. Azerbaijan sought an extraterritorial corridor to Nakhchivan via Armenia, which would undermine Iranian influence in the South Caucasus and open up Iranian Azerbaijan to Western subversion via Azerbaijan. At the same time, increased Turkish–Azerbaijani influence, coupled with the ongoing Armenian shift toward the West, would undermine Russian control over energy in the region. In 2020 Azerbaijan, with the support of Turkey, Israel, and NATO, instigated a war with Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh. Despite being a member of the Russian-fronted Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO), Armenia refused Russian assistance and also distanced itself from Iran. Prior to and during the conflict the Armenian military was poorly prepared. Many sources at the time speculated that the pro-Western PM Pashinyan allowed the Armenian military to deteriorate, hoping that a loss would serve as a further excuse for Armenia to make peace with Azerbaijan and replace CSTO with NATO membership. As a result of the war Azerbaijan achieved a decisive victory. Iran diplomatically supported Azerbaijani control over Nagorno-Karabakh, but not Azerbaijani proposals for the extraterritorial Zangezur Corridor. Recently there have been local flare-ups in which Azerbaijani forces have now gained control over portions of Armenia proper. At the same time the U.S. clearly appears to have drawn Armenia into its orbit, while Azerbaijani territorial demands have continued to escalate. Clearly the West, Israel, and Turkey are using Azerbaijan as a means to establish a base with which to attack northwestern Iran and eliminate Russian–Iranian links through the South Caucasus. As of now Turkey and Azerbaijan seem very emboldened and do not seem to think that Iran can put up any real resistance, hence continued Azerbaijani pressure on Armenia and rising Turkish ambition in Syria, Greece, Libya, and Central Asia. What if Azerbaijan, backed by the West, Turkey, and Israel, were to engage in a major armed conflict with Iran?
  2. There are numerous indications that the U.S. and Israel are recalibrating their reliance on the KSA/UAE and instead shifting their support to Turkey/Qatar in the MENA and elsewhere. Saudi/Emirati proxy Egypt, which previously opposed Turkish influence in Libya, is now willing to concede Turkish involvement there, while also improving ties with Ankara. U.S. President Biden has just designated Turkey’s financial patron Qatar as a major non-NATO ally. At the same time, the Biden administration is now opposing the Saudi- and Emirati-backed EastMed pipeline, which would have involved Egypt, Greece, and Cyprus as well as Israel, in favour of shipping Israeli gas to Europe via Turkey, complementing Qatar’s plans to serve as an alternative source of energy in Europe should Russia be excluded by the West. Previously Israel had spoken out in favour of Turkey’s playing a role in transporting Israeli gas to Europe, to the detriment of Egypt and its plans to invest in the EastMed pipeline. Reportedly, Israel viewed the EastMed pipeline as too expensive and giving undue weight to nationalist forces in Egypt, Greece, and the GCC. Turkey and Qatar also working with the U.S. and its clients to support the Taliban in Afghanistan by helping run the main airport in Kabul. I think that Iran is currently focussing too much on the KSA/UAE and has instead neglected the potentially greater threat posed by Turkey and Qatar on behalf of NATO and Israel.
  3. Azerbaijani army may strike Khankendi 4 April 2016 19:53 (UTC+04:00) Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 4 Trend: Azerbaijan's army may carry out strikes on the city of Khankendi and other occupied settlements, read a message posted on the website of Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry Apr. 4. "Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry has tasked all the types of the armed forces, including the rocket and artillery troops, to be ready to carry out crushing strikes from all heavy combat weapons on the Khankendi city and other occupied settlements, if the Armenians don't stop shelling Azerbaijani settlements in a short time," said the message. Armenian armed forces are targeting densely populated residential areas and civilians in order to retaliate for heavy causalities along the frontline, added the ministry. "Acting inhumanly, the Armenian side provokes Azerbaijan to take counter measures despite the continuous warnings made by Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry to the Armenian side," said the message. "Azerbaijan once again calls on Armenia to respect the international law and norms and stop the use of lethal force against civilians." On the night of Apr. 2, all the frontier positions of Azerbaijan were subjected to heavy fire from Armenians, who were using large-caliber weapons, mortars, grenade launchers and guns. Azerbaijani settlements near the frontline densely populated by civilians were shelled as well. There are casualties among the civilians as a result of the shelling. Six Armenian tanks, 15 gun mounts and reinforced engineering structures were destroyed and more than 100 servicemen of the Armenian armed forces were wounded and killed during the shootouts. Twelve servicemen of the Azerbaijani armed forces heroically died, one Mi-24 helicopter was shot down and one tank was damaged on a mine. Three more soldiers of Azerbaijan were killed during the past day and night as a result of the ceasefire violation. The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.

  4. السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ (May Allah Shower His Mercy, Peace & Blessings upon You All) I hope My Shia Muslim Brothers and Shia Muslim Sisters are Living a Good Life by The Grace of Allah. . Alhamdulillah. I would like to know any Information about Turkic (Don't get confused with Turkey),Mongol Shias. And Persian Speaking Turk-o-Mongol Shias. Let me tell you My Lineage first: My Shia Muslim Brothers, I am actually a descendant from a Chagatayid Mughal family of Pakistan. My family lineage traces back to the Turk-O-Mongol Warriors of Genghis Khan -> Chagatai Khan -> Ameer Timur and then Mughal Emperors. As far as I know and I am told, My Ancestors were Sufi Sunnis who followed Hanafi Madhab and Naqshbandi Sufi Chain (and we are still Hanafis to this day). Persian was Mother tongue for centuries. My Grandparents used to speak Persian and my father knew some Persian because of my Grandparents. I know nothing or very little about Persian because of Surroundings. My Family uses Khan, Shah, Chughtai & Changezi as their Surnames. My Ancestors were Weapon Makers and also fought Battles for Mongol Kings. Majority Family lineages in Pakistan are Indian and Afghan. Turk and Mongol families are very very few and rare. If there is any Brother from Subcontinent here who is from Turko-Mongol Lineage and a Shia, then I would like to meet my Cousin . So My question is : Are there any Central Asian Turkic Shia Empires and Mongol Shia Empires? Most Turk and Mongol Empires I find on the Internet are Sunni Hanafi, Not Shia. I am Curious about Shia Turkic and Mongol Empires. And one more, are there any Shia Turk and Shia Mongol empires who later were Persianized or Indianized? I am Curious for Answers May Allah Reward You all for your Answers <3
  5. I know that Armenia fought a war against the Muslim nation Azerbaijan several years ago. And that their are still flare ups of conflict between the two nations. But, I am curious as to why Pakistan does not recognize the sovereignty of Armenia? I know Armenia was the first Christian nation and remains so to this day a predominately Christian country. But Armenia has a history that goes back hundreds of years before Christianity.
  6. Asalam Aleikum! Very few Muslims, Shia and Sunni know what is happening in the Muslim majority country of Azerbaijan to Muslims since it gained its independence from USSR in 1991. Very few Shia Muslims know that Azerbaijan is the second largest Shia country in percentage terms after Iran, up to 87% of people are Shia Muslims. Great Ulema of the school of Ahlul Bayt (as) like Sayed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Jafar Subhani, Ayatollah Khoi and Shahid Mustafa Chamran are ethnic Azeris. There are up to 15 million ethnic Azeris living in Iran mainly in the Azerbaijan province of Iran, the capital of the province is Tabriz. Today Azerbaijan Republic is ruled by a despotic regime led by Ilham Aliyev who inherited his power from his father the former KGB General Geidar Aliyev. One year ago Aliyev's regime banned hijab in public schools and dozens of Islamic scholars are imprisoned today for defending hijab along with over a hundred Islamic activists. Here are some very informative analysis I recommend all Muslims to read to know what is the situation like in Azerbaijan. I found very good analysis from the Islamic newsmagazine called Crescent International that is well known in Muslim activist circles which is led by our Sunnni brothers. “Great game” on the Azerbaijan chessboard http://www.crescent-online.net/2009/11/great-game-on-the-azerbaijan-chessboard-maksud-djavadov-2363-articles.html Islamic stirrings in Tajikistan and Azerbaijan http://www.crescent-online.net/2010/10/islamic-stirrings-in-tajikistan-and-azerbaijan-maksud-djavadov-2751-articles.html Islamic Iran in the Azeri-Karabakh-Armenia triangle http://www.crescent-online.net/2010/11/islamic-iran-in-the-azeri-karabakh-armenia-triangle-maksud-djavadov-2804-articles.html
  7. Bibi heybet grave in Baku, Azerbaijan , also known as (Ukeyma Khanum tomb). Bibi Heybet or Fatima Al-Sughra is a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad Pbuh and one of four daughters of Imam Musa Al-Kazem A.S whom called Fatima (Fatima Al-Kubra or Al-ma'sumah buried in Qum/Iran, Fatima Al-Wusta Buried in Isfahan/Iran,Fatima Al-Okhra buried in Rasht/Iran ,and Fatima Al-Sughra buried in Baku/Azerbaijana today is the spiritual center for the Muslims of the region and one of the major monuments of Islamic architecture in Azerbaijan. It's locally known as "the mosque of Fatima" which Alexandre Dumas using the same name, described the mosque during his visit in the 1840s.he mosque was built over the tomb of the daughter of the seventh Shiite Imam - Musa al-Kazim, who fled to Baku from persecution of caliphs. On the tomb there is carved on a stone inscription indicating that Ukeyma Khanum belongs to the sacred family: "Here was buried Ukeyma Khanum, a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, the granddaughter of the sixth Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq A.S, the daughter of the Seventh Imam Musa Kazym A,S, sister of the eighth Imam Ali Al-Riza A.S.
  8. آذربايجان "ترک" نيست Azaris are native Iranian people - while Iranians respect all people including Turkish people, it should be pointed out that Azaris (sometimes spelled 'Azeri') are native-&-ethnic Northern Iranians since ancient times. Fairly recently in history Azaris adopted a new Turkic language (that is also mixed with Persian). Modern Azaris speak two languages: Persian and Turkic, but their ancient language was a form of Old-Persian (also called "Old Azari" Old Azari language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ).

  9. According to reports by Islamazeri.az residents of Ganja city in the Republic of Azerbaijan have been reporting of a new Islamophobic restriction by the notorious governor Elman Veliyev. On August 1, 2012 Veliyev issued an informal ban on iftar gatherings and Qadr night gatherings in city mosques. Citizens from Genja region reported that local imams of the mosques have been notified by local authorities to close mosques at iftar times and not allow worshipers to come for prayers past maghrib prayer time. Since Veliyev was appointed the governor of Genja, oppression of Muslims reached new heights. Practicing Muslims in Genja and respectable scholars are constantly harassed by Aliyev’s armed gangs who function under the logo of police. Previously Veliyev was a governor of Yevlah region in Azerbaijan where he imprisoned several Muslim activists and scholars. It should be noted that even during the rule of atheist USSR, Qadr night gatherings were monitored by the KGB, but never formally or informally banned. If you are a Shia, please consider it a responsibility to reach out to people in the Republic of Azerbaijan and let them know that alliances with Israel, government Islamophobia, and the government of Aliyev are improper and must change.
  10. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khojaly_Massacre Comment : So it seems almost 700 Shia Muslim civilians were massacred in Azerbaijan in 1992 by armed Armenians , yet few people remember these vicitims and massacres, including the larger Shia community is oblivious to this. Why aren't these martyrs given the same status on par with other Shia martyrs in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan ? Or are the Azeri not considered shuhada because they are not practising Muslims ?
  11. I was reading the news on Azerbaijan being cozy to Israel and how the country is being used as a launch pad for Israeli terrorist activities in Iran. Azerbaijan is 85% Shia Muslims but is heavily influenced by Western and Russian atheist movements. The country is under the iron fist of sham democracy supported by western spy agencies, Mosad being the most notable among those sinister groups. Any information if there are any Islamic plans for Azerbaijan and if there is a real democratic movement lurking in shadows for or by the oppressed people of Azerbaijan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azerbaijan
