Water Access in Jeopardy as Renewed Nargono-Karabakh Escalations Erupt

At around 6 AM on September 27, the Armenian armed forces violated the ceasefire and intensively fired on the positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the frontline using large caliber machine guns and sniper rifles. This appears to be another deliberate and targeted provocation by the Armenian armed forces manifested in opening fire on the civilians densely populated in the front-line areas and civil facilities.

Genocide and Democracy

The border clash between Armenia and Azerbaijan reminds the world about the Armenian Genocide which occurred in 1915.  The Genocide was a systematic mass murder of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians by the Ottoman authorities after they were defeated in World War I.  The awareness of modern civilization about the dangers of Genocide were awakened in World War II by the holocaust where 6 million Jews were brutally killed in German Concentration camps. The memory of the holocaust has great meaning to instill in the world a desire to prevent genocide in the future.

Clashes Between Azerbaijan and Armenia Remind the World About the Armenian Genocide

Genocide is defined as mass destruction of racial and national groups. The motive of Genocide can be national, religious or both. The motive of national genocide is to destroy another nation which threatens their future existence or stands in the way of their future survival.

Today there is a conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.  At the end of World War I which was the end of the Ottoman Empire, there was the Armenian Genocide. The Armenian Genocide was the systematic mass murder and expulsion of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians. The starting date is conventionally on April 24, 1915, the day that the Ottoman authorities rounded up and arrested a group of Armenian intellectuals living in Constantinople which is today Istanbul, Turkey.
