Construction of Church in Jabrail Armenia's Provocation

Baku / 05.10.17 / Turan: Armenia violates the norms of humanitarian
law, and its actions contradict the basic principles of Christianity
and the teachings of the Gospel. This was stated by the official
representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Hikmet
Hajiyev, commenting on the construction of a Christian church by
Armenia in the Jabrail district of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia.

As Hajiyev noted, the construction of a church in Jabrail, where
Armenians never lived, is an attempt to deliberately add a religious
color to the conflict.

"The special diligence of Armenian religious figures in this process,
which is illegal and far from religious values, is deeply regrettable.
Such actions carried out by Armenia and the Armenian Church not only
contradict international humanitarian law, but also do not correspond
to the Gospel and the basic principles of Christianity, which like
other celestial religions teaches peace, respect for the property of
others and avoidance of aggressive actions," Hajiyev said.

He stressed that the issue in connection with this provocative action
of Armenia will be raised in the framework of international
organizations. -05D06--

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
