The Case for Affirming the Independence of the Armenian Republic of Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh
by David Boyajian
In recent years, many territories’ declarations of independence have been justifiably affirmed through international agreements. The Republic of Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh’s declaration of independence from Azerbaijan three decades ago is as legitimate as any of those. Artsakh is the republic’s ancient Armenian name.
Artsakh and Christian Armenia have been under attack by Azerbaijan, Turkey, jihadist terrorists, and ISIS since September 27. Turkey is using its army, American-built F-16 jets, drones, and other weapons against Armenians. Azerbaijan’s arsenal comes mostly from Israel, including illegal cluster bombs being targeted against civilians. Israel is currently resupplying Azerbaijan.
Artsakh, like Armenia, is thousands of years old. In contrast, no country named Azerbaijan existed before 1918. It was cobbled together out of a diverse population of what were called Muslims or Tartars, as well as Armenians, Persians, Russians, and others. No such identity as ‘Azeri’ had ever existed.
We’ll show that Artsakh justifiably and legitimately voted for self-determination as it separated from Azerbaijan, its previous temporary but brutish overlord.
The Stalinist Giveaway
Turkey and Azerbaijan speak Turkic dialects. Therefore, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin fantasized (incorrectly, as it turned out) that Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) and his incipient Turkish Republic could be lured into the USSR’s web. So in the early 1920s, Stalin transferred Artsakh — then 96% Armenian — and the Armenian territory of Nakhichevan to Azerbaijan. Stalin’s blunder is the root cause of the present impasse over Artsakh.
Shortly before the transfer, Azerbaijan massacred Armenians in Artsakh, Baku (Azerbaijan), and elsewhere. These crimes were part of the Armenian Genocide that Turkey had already been committing from 1915 on.
Stalin also transferred Armenian land to Azerbaijan such that Artsakh became geographically cut off from Armenia. Many majority Armenian areas were also excluded from Artsakh. The latter became a nominally “autonomous” region within Soviet Azerbaijan but, in reality, under the latter’s heavy jackboot.
Artsakh voted for self-determination in accordance with Soviet law in 1988 and international law in 1991. Self-determination and territorial integrity have equal standing under international law. In response, Azerbaijan massacred Armenians in its own cities of Baku, Kirovabad/Ganja, and Sumgait. A war ensued which the outnumbered and outgunned Armenians won in 1994.
Artsakh’s long nightmare through seven decades of Azerbaijani rule was due not to Communism but rather to raw Azeri ethno-racial fanaticism.
Artsakh’s Long Nightmare
Under Azeri rule, Artsakh’s Armenians dropped from 95% to 76% of the population — the product of deportations, exile, murder, theft, oppression, and Azerbaijan’s calculating importation of Azeris to replace the Armenian majority.
The KGB’s Heydar Aliyev — father of current Azeri dictator Ilham Aliyev — admitted to exiling Artsakh’s Armenians and bringing in Azeris. Reported Russia’s REGNUM news agency: “I tried to increase the number of Azeris and to reduce the number of Armenians.”
Armenian historical figures’ titles were crudely Islamized to “Pasha” or “Bey.” The fifth-century Armenian historian Movses Khorenatsi became Muhammed al-Khojayi.
References to Armenian history in textbooks were excised. Even the written word Artsakh was banned.
In the last few days there has been interesting news about the beheading of a French schoolteacher by a Chechen mujahid last Friday. It seems that the schoolteacher, Samuel Paty, was reported to the police for distributing pornographic images after he showed a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Mohammed to his middle-school class.
But it gets even more interesting: the girl who told her father what happened in class to wasn’t even present the day the Motoon was shown. She simply passed on rumors of the event, which she claimed to have witnessed.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politikstube:
Alice Weidel: The German economy is perishing!
Germany is on the cusp of a deep recession.
The signs of excessive unemployment, bankruptcies and the slump in GDP are already evident today.
The fairy tale issued by the federal government of the V-shaped economic recovery in the near future is being shattered by reality.
The so-called second Corona wave with its profound restrictions on public life and the smoldering lockdown subjects many economies in the Eurozone to a stress test that comes at an inopportune time.
After three lost quarters, many analysts have cut their growth expectations for the fourth quarter sharply within a month.
For the EU member states, only a 2% instead of a 3% recovery is expected by the end of December — for Germany the forecast is even lower, at a modest 1.5%. Every taxpayer in Germany will be presented with the invoice after the 2021 federal election.
The increased number of tests, even on symptom-free people, leads to a higher number of infections.
Just 851 (!) people are currently showing symptoms.
What kind of a pandemic is that supposed to be?
Instead of remaining in disaster mode, threatening the economy with a new lockdown, and forcing the entire population under the mask, even outdoors, the government must now make a 180-degree turn.
A call to the WHO is needed: They issued the update that COVID-19 is less dangerous than conventional flu.
The translator includes this afterword:
It looks to me that our respective governments around the world have been pushing the Corona Pandemic Lie already to such a degree that there won’t be any recovery for the little people until those responsible are taken down from their lofty pedestals, tried and [intemperate recommendation redacted] for crimes against humanity.
But that is just my humble opinion.
Islam, Marxism, Globalism, Covideanism… all those cults seek only power and the submission of people. The people themselves, the little people like you and me, are no more than the grist for their mill.
And I for one am sick and tired of it.
Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan sends this update on the latest unrest in Thailand.
Thailand: it’s shirt time again!
by H. Numan
I’ve reported extensively about the red vs yellow shirt crises during last decade in Thailand. In the end the green shirts (army) won. At this moment we see the white shirts (students) battling it out with the brown shirts (police). Who will win is not clear, but I’m absolutely certain we are witnessing the beginning of what could become large-scale riots, if not something a good deal worse.
As usual, a bit of groundwork. What’s that with colors in Thailand? Well, you have to understand: Thailand is not a western country. It is one of the few Asian countries that was never colonized. Therefore it was able to keep its identity. In Thai culture colors have names, and every day of the week has its own color. The late king was born on Monday, which has the color yellow. In Thailand yellow is reserved for the king himself. All members of the royal family have their own personal color.
When people started to organize themselves into opposing camps under the Thaksin administration, royalists wore yellow shirts. They were mainly middle class citizens of Bangkok. Adherents to Thaksin started to wear red shirts. Not because they are communist. Communism is explicitly forbidden in Thailand. Red is the color of blood and of love for the country. Thaksin supporters (red shirts) were predominantly lower-class citizens outside Bangkok. In other words: a huge majority. Both the red and yellow shirts were monarchists. The monarchy was not an issue. That’s why you have the weird situation in which both parties were carrying large portraits of the late king Rama IX.
Those colors are important. When the late king Bumibhol left the hospital one day wearing a mint green jacket, I saw lot of people the next day wearing mint green shirts.
In the end, the green shirts won. They committed a coup d’état in 2014 and are still in control. Both the yellow shirt and red shirt leaders were arrested and put on trial. Both movements were disbanded. As usual they claimed no other solution was possible but a coup, and they would put things right and fight corruption. And, of course, as soon as possible democracy would be restored.
And, of course, that didn’t happen. This military government may not have been the most corrupt government in Thai history, but they sure tried. One nice juicy scandal involved the many watches of General Prawit Wongsuan. He was spotted wearing an expensive watch he hadn’t declared when he took office. Soon it was clear he had a collection of 24 watches. We’re talking top-of-the-line watches costing many thousands of dollars. Each watch is more worth than the annual salary of a general.
We do have a national anti-corruption commission — which is akin to Marlboro running anti-smoking campaigns. That NACC did its utmost best to keep Prawit out of the wind. After a lengthy investigation they accepted his excuse: those watches were from a friend, who sadly passed away. That friend had loaned him those 24 watches, and matching jewelry. He will return them to the next of kin, some day in the far future. He wears them today. As a badge of (dis)honor, even. After all, he, an honest hard-working underpaid officer, defeated the evil corrupt NACC.
Last year the military government announced they had re-written the constitution, would resign from office, and called for democratic elections. When Prayuth announced his candidacy for premier, I knew he was going to win. No Thai PM would ever announce his candidacy if he wasn’t 100% certain he was going to win. Which he did.
Were the elections rigged? Probably. A vote costs Bt. 500 ($16) each. Thai politics are not based on national parties, but on persons. For example, scumbag first class, I mean police captain Chalerm Yubamrung. Talk about every crime in the book, he will assure you he committed more. His youngest son Duangchalerm shot a police officer in a bar. He fled to Singapore. There the Thai ambassador personally escorted him home, where daddy had arranged a hero’s welcome for him on the airport, with thousands cheering the returning hero. He never had to see a judge, the court has ruled that
the bribe was sufficient there was insufficient evidence for prosecution. Daddy was member of parliament and even vice-premier under the Yingluck administration. He supported the wrong team, and was arrested shortly after the coup. Now he is retired in comfort.
Here’s the latest update on the execution of the blasphemous infidel schoolteacher in Paris last Friday.
The assassination of Samuel Paty: A parent of a pupil and the assailant exchanged messages before the attack
These exchanges are believed to have been on the message server, WhatsApp.
by Le Figaro and AFP
October 20, 2020
The pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the professor assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages by telephone with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack, AFP learned Tuesday from a source close to the case.
These exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added this inside source, confirming news from BFMTV, without giving specifics as to their content.
The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended. The latter, who is in the 4th year, was, indeed, part of a class in which Samuel Paty gave a course on freedom of expression on 6 October, but she was absent that day according to a source close to the case.
On 12 October he had disseminated a new video on YouTube targeting the teacher, in which the militant Islamist Abdelhakim Sefrioui appeared with him. The two men were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in this anti-terrorist investigation, along with 14 other persons, including five students.
Bodo Schiffmann is a German otorhinolaryngologist, and an outspoken critic of the wearing of masks in response to the Wuhan Coronavirus. In the following video Dr. Schiffmann’s birthday party in an event room of a restaurant is interrupted by a visit from the Corona police, who have received a report that the doctor and his guests have broken Corona regulations on masks and social distancing.
There is a wry joke about the DDR (“German Democratic Republic”) partway through the video. In the old East Germany the police (as opposed to the Stasi) were the Volkspolizei, commonly known as the VoPo. It seems appropriate to designate the mask-wearing uniformed drones in this video CoPo — it’s short, easy to remember, and has a nice resonance.
The mujahid decapitator of Paris has now been identified as an 18-year-old Russian Chechen named Abdoullakh A., and his schoolteacher victim as Samuel Paty. Both of them are dead — why is it that we only get an initial for the killer’s surname, but are given the full name of his victim?
I noticed in the photo accompanying the article that the Parisian Eloi have heaped up the usual saccharine “memorial” materiel outside the school where Mr. Paty taught. Savvy investors who bought teddy bear futures or stock in candle companies must be making a killing — so to speak.
Live: Teacher decapitated: A national tribute to Samuel Paty will be held Wednesday
Here is a late recap of the events that followed the murder Friday evening of Samuel Paty, a teacher decapitated because he had shown a cartoon of Mohammed to his pupils.
The assailant, killed by the police after the attack, has been identified as Abdoullakh A., a Russian-Chechen, 18 years of age, who was born in Moscow and came to France as a refugee with his family, stated the national anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard to the press. The killer was known for past common law offenses, but not by the intelligence services for radicalization. On 4 March 2020 he obtained a residence permit valid until March 2030. He had refugee status, and resided at Evreux in Normandy.
Ten people were in custody Saturday, including the parents, grandfather, and younger brother of the assailant, detained at Evreux (Eure). Also in custody is the father of the pupil who called for action against the teacher. He was placed in custody at Chanteloup-les-Vignes. The man who accompanied him to the college to complain about the teacher, and who interviewed the daughter of this parent of a pupil in a video, the militant Islamist, Abdelhakim Sefrioui, active in France since the middle of the years 2000, as well as his companion, were also arrested.
About 1,000 persons gathered Saturday afternoon in front of the college of Bois d’Aulne a Conflans-Saint-Honorine (Yvelines). Samuel Paty, age 47 and the father of a family, was a teacher of history-geography in this establishment. The teacher, known for his investment in his pupils, was “very well-thought of,” stated Armelle, whose 13-year-old son attends the college. In the morning, white roses were placed at the entrance to the college in this residential quarter, where pupils and parents are in a state of shock.
Large demonstrations of support are expected Sunday across the country. Representatives of the principal political parties, associations, and unions will demonstrate Sunday at 3pm in Paris, at the emblematic Square of the Republic, and in numerous other cities. A national tribute will be held Wednesday to this teacher of history and geography, the Élysée announced. And a defense meeting, presided over by Emmanuel Macron, is expected to take place Sunday. “Other expressions and announcements are planned after the meetings,” according to the executive.
Yesterday a French schoolteacher was beheaded on the street in Paris by a man who shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during the attack (see the New York Post report). The killer, who was shot dead by police, is said to have been outraged that the teacher had shown a Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoon to his class, which included Muslims.
The following video, recorded by a prominent French imam, is allegedly what inspired the decapitation of the teacher. If the schoolgirl in the video is correct, the blasphemous image the teacher showed his class depicted the prophet with no clothes on. Assuming that is in fact the case, the picture may have been a panel from the special comic book series published by Charlie Hebdo in 2013, “La Vie de Mahomet”.
Europe is currently experiencing its “second wave” of the Wuhan Coronavirus, and a number of countries are in the process of imposing varying degrees of a new lockdown. Spain, France, and the UK have adopted particularly strict regimes.
MissPiggy sends this report of her personal experience with Coronamadness in Germany:
Yesterday I visited hairdresser’s and immediately ran afoul of the Corona regulations. First it was about not having the “right mask”. Then I was given my next instructions about going to the bathroom to wash my hands. After that I was told my hands needed to be disinfected.
I said, “I’m sorry, I just washed my hands — that should be enough.” I showed my hands, and said that I have an allergic reaction on my hands (fingertips) from all these disinfectants. So I refused, and they said, “Sorry, then we can’t serve you.”
Then they agreed to just spray the palms. So far, so good. Then I had to fill out a form with my contact information. That’s when I said, “Nope. I’ll spend my money elsewhere.” So now there’s a “mobil friseur” coming to my house on Tuesday.
As for that hairdresser’s, they can go bankrupt. The owner even said in the end that he had no understanding for people who wouldn’t comply with these measures. His reasoning was that because of people like me, there will be a second lockdown. I told him that was going to happen with or without people like me.
At one point I just asked, “What’s next, a PCR to get your hair cut?” Their response was, “No, no…” That launched a whole discussion about how this isn’t their idea, that they have to follow instructions, and they don’t want another lockdown because they barely survived the first one, etc.
I had the same conversation with a lady at the fish counter in a grocery store. I didn’t have my glasses on and she pointed at something I couldn’t see, so I leaned forward. She barked at me to stay behind the magic tape on the floor. I retorted, “If I don’t, will you call the Corona police?” She explained to me that they are also sick of it all, but they have secret shoppers from the health department checking up on them.
MissPiggy’s story brought to mind the following poem by W.H. Auden. I’ve posted it before, but it’s worth revisiting.
It was written in the 1930s, during another rapid expansion of the all-powerful socialist state:
“Stick with the science” is the mantra of politicians and public health officials during the COVID-19 era. Our Israeli correspondent MC takes a peek behind the curtain of politicized “science”.
The problem with propaganda — the idea of lying to the populace — is what happens when the lies are exposed.
This is highly relevant in the current scenario of lockdowns and face masks. See this article. The science raises questions as to the motivation of lockdown authorities, and those authorities have to respond with Lysenkoised ‘science’ in order to defend their actions.
At the behest of Joseph Stalin, Trofim Lysenko used politicised junk ‘science’ to validate lies.
Lysenko forced farmers to plant seeds very close together since, according to his “law of the life of species”, plants from the same “class” never compete with one another. Lysenko played an active role in the famines that killed millions of Soviet people and his practices prolonged and exacerbated the food shortages. The People’s Republic of China under Mao Tse-Tung adopted his methods starting in 1958, with calamitous results, culminating in the Great Chinese Famine of 1959 to 1962, in which some 15 million people died. At least 30 million died of starvation.
Outside the Soviet Union, scientists spoke critically: British biologist S. C. Harland lamented that Lysenko was “completely ignorant of the elementary principles of genetics and plant physiology” (Bertram Wolfe, 2017). Criticism from foreigners did not sit well with Lysenko, who loathed Western “bourgeois” scientists and denounced them as tools of imperialist oppressors. He especially detested the American-born practice of studying fruit flies, the workhorse of modern genetics. He called such geneticists “fly lovers and people haters”.
Unable to silence Western critics, Lysenko tried to eliminate all dissent within the Soviet Union. Scientists who refused to renounce genetics found themselves at the mercy of the secret police. The lucky ones simply got dismissed from their posts and were left destitute. Hundreds if not thousands of others were rounded up and dumped into prisons or psychiatric hospitals. Several were sentenced to death as enemies of the state or starved in their jail cells (most notably the botanist Nikolai Vavilov). Before the 1930s, the Soviet Union had a strong genetics community. Lysenko gutted it, and by some accounts set Russian biology and agronomy back a half-century.
One can immediately see the model here: the mal-educated Lysenko develops an opinion that catches the attention of technically illiterate, but powerful politicians. Lysenko’s opinions are in accord with political (religious) dogma and ambitions, so they MUST be correct.
Rather than validate the opinion using such tools as observation, peer review and the repeatability of experimentation, the ‘science’ becomes ‘settled’ by consensus and opinion rather than open, reviewable research.
Millions starved to death because Lysenko’s erroneous opinions became official state ‘science’.
In Lysenko’s case, the subject matter was the growing problem of falling crop yields due to the inherent problems of collectivisation, which was a mandated (but unproven) ritual belief of religious communism. The communist ‘New Man’ would become a super-farmer if he would just do as the regime demanded.
Lysenkoism is not just limited to agriculture. We can see it working in medicine (face masks, lockdowns and vaccines) and climate change (the great carbon dioxide hoax).
Well, it seems that I was wrong last night when I said that the eviction of the Antifas from Liebig 34 in Berlin was a NIMBY issue. According to the tweet below, the anarchists had to be put out on the street so that refugees could be welcomed into the building:
Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating the tweet:
This is the real point of the eviction of Liebig 34: The building owner wants to accommodate “Refugees” in the building. Thanks to the uncontrolled mass migration forced by leftists and “We Have Room” propaganda, this is only logical.
[According to a SPIEGEL article] Padovicz wants to accommodate refugees in the house in the future. It is “the most likely scenario,” says his lawyer Mr. Wrobel. Talks are being held with possible new tenants.
The question now is: Will the anarchists take umbrage at being displaced by culture-enrichers?
Also: If so, will it make them reconsider their long-time advocacy for open borders?
Last Friday the Berlin police evicted a group of Antifa squatters from a building on Liebigstraße in Berlin. The anarchists had been living there illegally for thirty years, but the Powers That Be have only now gotten around to removing them. The reason? The neighborhood has recently been “renovated”, i.e. gentrified, and the municipal authorities had been under pressure to get rid of the undesirables and their eyesore of a building. In other words, it was a typical NIMBY initiative on the part of affluent progressives.
Below are two news videos about the eviction. Notice that all the graffiti on the inner walls of the building seem to be in English. Do the residents not speak German?
The end of an era: Tour of the “Liebig 34”
A rare insight: The leftist (Antifa) squat in Berlin-Friedrichshain was tolerated for 30 years. The “residents” did everything to prevent the emergency services from entering the house. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the eviction of one of the last symbols of the left-wing extremist scene in Berlin went surprisingly smoothly. The Left Party and the Greens mourn the squatters’ departure from the “unique safe haven”.
At 7:25am the task force from the Berlin police department turned on the chainsaw. The door of the building at the address Liebigstraße 34 could not be opened with an ordinary crowbar. It had been barricaded so that no one could enter. The police announced that they would evict the residents of the house in the Friedrichshain district at 7am sharp. Preparations had been going on for days. A zone was cordoned off around the house, and police officers also took positions on the roofs of surrounding houses. The streets were cleared for heavy equipment. And that’s what was needed. Armored vehicles, a ladder crane and several police vehicles. Everything was used to evict the house of its occupants, and that’s exactly what happened. Since it was impossible to enter the main entrance of the building on the ground floor — even with a chainsaw — the first floor seemed more promising. With the help of scaffolding, the officials entered the building through a window.
