Campaigns against Azerbaijan: hypocrisy without borders
Campaigns against any initiative of Azerbaijan, against any of its initiative can be described as follows: words differing from deeds. That is, any real action of Azerbaijan is contrasted with words: allegations, unsubstantiated statements and explicit insinuations.
During the Eurovision Song Contest Baku was accused of all mortal sins. The result? The words remained the words, and Azerbaijan held the contest, which can be hardly compared to any of the following ones, and virtually none of the previous ones. In addition, the country gained the experience of holding world-wide events and what is most important - people began to discover Azerbaijan.
Not only foreign tourists, arriving in Azerbaijan, but also citizens who travel abroad can confirm that.
Undoubtedly, the same will happen with the first European Games. The games will be held, and the created infrastructure, the transport, tourism potential - all will be left to Azerbaijan. What is most important is the challenge. It's a challenge to all the following candidates for holding these international events.
Aming the upcoming Games, there's another important fact. The US is the most active opponent of holding the European Games. Moreover, the US interferes in other continent's affairs with undue familiarity (this is not a surprise for anybody). This way Washington also tries to teach Azerbaijan how to live.
Dear Sirs! Before you teach someone to LIVE, stop KILLING your own citizens first.
Protest actions today take place in many cities in the US. The leitmotif of all these actions is that the citizens are afraid of their police. The country where the people fear the police, talks about the violation of human rights. Nonsense!
For all those who don't know - as distinct from the US, no one kills the citizens in Azerbaijan because they have a different skin color, because of their clothing, or because they do sports.
No one was subjected to pressure for religion or race in Azerbaijan throughout the country's history.
The latest investigation revealed that the anti-Azerbaijani campaign is managed from the office of the US State Secretary John Kerry.
The National Endowment for Democracy organization has been ordered to hold this campaign. The organization that is financed from the US budget, has been trying to create "the fifth column" in Azerbaijan for many years. NED has sent millions of dollars to some NGOs and media structures in Azerbaijan from the sources in the West.
To sum up, it is not Azerbaijan that chose these Games, it is Europe that chose Azerbaijan, and the country will fully justify this choice.
