The Khojaly massacre was marked across the world on Feb. 25 as Azerbaijan continues its efforts for the massacre to achieve international recognition.

Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu urged member countries Feb. 24 to join efforts for the recognition of the Khojaly genocide on a global scale, Anatolia news agency reported. Azerbaijani civilians living in the town of Khojaly in Nagorno-Karabakh were attacked on Feb. 26, 1992 by Armenian forces during the war between Baku and Yerevan. According to Azerbaijani officials, at least 600 people, mostly women and children, were killed.

Turkish Deputy Culture and Tourism Minister Abdurrahman Arıcı said the massacre was not included in the global agenda as much as it should have.

“Unfortunately despite taking place in the recent times, the massacre was not brought to the world agenda as much as it should have been,” Arıcı said, adding that the event should be carried on to next generations.

“No matter what happens this incident will not be forgotten,” he said.

A series of commemoration events were held in many cities in Turkey. A petition seeking a U.S. presidential proclamation to commemorate the Khojaly massacre this month has reached the necessary 100,000 signatures required by the White House for the president to make an official pronouncement on the incident, according to convention.

That is good.. When there is no racism in these protests we can listen to what they are saying.

A year ago, when they were protesting the similar event in Istanbul, their racist screams and slogans caused outrage:

 

 

The board reads as :"You all are Armenians. You all are bastards."

I am glad that this time, they removed these people and staged a rightful protest.

 

It seems like Azarbaijan is going through the same path as Turkey has gone (and still going through I assume). Because an Azarbaijani writer, Ekrem Eylisli, said something like ´Armenians are not our enemies´. And the result is very similar to what happened to Orhan Pamuk a few years ago. They are offering 10.000 manats to the person who brings "his ears".  The state of Azarbaijan is very busy to take the prizes given to this writer back. {#emotions_dlg.you_crazy}

I said it is rightful protest.

Nobody who lives in this world  could  think my post  was advocating Armenians apart from the people who carries that type of racist and shameful poster. And you are not expected to think that exposing racism is somehow it is siding with one party. You should have known this by now.

ps. I have to warn you that misspelling a user´s name is a reason to be told off and considered as an insult..

Following Armenians own example to revenge claims of massacre would have been in order. Luckily,  Azerbaican did not shoot defensless and unaware Armenian diplomats.
