Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 22 /Trend, U.Sadikhova/
Desecration of a monument to
Holocaust victims in Yerevan once again proves that the Armenians are not able to coexist with other nations, said the head of the Community of Mountain Jews in Azerbaijan Semen Ikhiilov.
This week, the unknown in the Armenian capital painted in red paint a Nazi symbol - the swastika - on the monument to the victims of the Holocaust and left an inscription in Armenian "Death to the Jews", the Armenian media outlets reported.
This is not the first desecration of the monument to Holocaust victims. Prior to its installation in 2006, in its place there was a Holocaust memorial obelisk, which was several times the target of desecration.
The head of the Community of Mountain Jews of Azerbaijan believes that the destruction of monuments and relics is peculiar to the Armenian people, given the actions of the Armenians in the occupied Azerbaijani territories.
"All the monuments in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan have been destroyed and burned, and after this, what we can expect from this people. Such actions must be condemned in the international arena," Ikhiilov told Trend, adding that the Armenians have no right thereafter to demand from countries worldwide to recognize false fact of "Armenian genocide".
"If they are capable of such an act of vandalism, then why they require the world community to recognize the "genocide"? Until now, Armenians have received undeserved financial assistance [from the U.S.]," said the head of the community.
According to Ikhiilov, destroying historical monuments, Armenians erase the past, without which it is difficult to imagine the future.
"Armenians have no future. It's impossible to live by destroying the past. Armenians have forgotten that they live in the occupied Azerbaijani lands" - said Ikhiilov.
Armenia and Armenian lobby claim that the Ottoman Empire, precursor to modern Turkey, perpetrated genocide against.
Armenians willing the recognition of this fact in the world, promoting the so-called "genocide", have achieved recognition of the "Armenian genocide" by the parliaments of some countries. In March at a meeting of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of U.S. House of Representatives, it was decided to approve the resolution on so-called "genocide." A similar decision was taken by the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Swedish Parliament.
