Intelligence Online has published an article about the recent war in Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh), stating that Azerbaijan has won the intelligence war thanks to the Israeli contracts.

The article says that while the world’s focus was on the support of Turkey and Syrian mercenaries to Azerbaijan, as well as the Israeli-made UAVs, Israel was also providing intelligence data to Baku.

From state-of-the-art sensors to ultra-accurate field modelling, Tel Aviv has made its latest intelligence-gathering technologies available to Baku, rapidly changing the trajectory of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Intelligence Online reports that Israeli companies have provided Azerbaijan with concrete data about the geographical terrain of Nagorno Karabakh which made it easier for the UAVs of the Azerbaijani army to move in the aforementioned areas. It says it is thanks to these data that the UAVs managed to accurately hit the targets and cause huge losses to the Armenian side.

The article also states that Israel managed to test its equipment in areas near Iran, which, according to the author of the article, is of great importance for it.

  1. Israel and leading Jewish American organizations have long been very hostile to Armenians, Armenia, and Artsakh, and have been deniers of the Armenian Genocide. They’re still just as hostile.

    They also helped Turkey defeat Armenian Genocide resolutions in Congress.

    Here are two actual excerpts from the Jewish media:

    (1) Showdown Set in ‘Genocide’ Debate

    Every year on April 24, the day that Armenians commemorate the killings, a resolution calling for the use of the controversial term is proposed in Congress and then beaten back. Some Jewish groups claim credit for ensuring that such a resolution never passes.

    Jewish advocacy groups, including the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, B’nai Brith and American Jewish Committee “have been working with the Turks on this issue” for more than 15 years, said Yola Habif Johnston, director for foundations and community outreach at Jinsa. “The Jewish lobby has quite actively supported Turkey in their efforts to prevent the so-called Armenian genocide resolution from passing,” she said.

    (2) Armenian lobbyists are facing a lost cause

    Last year, Jewish organizations, primarily the American Jewish Committee (AJC), have been more active in thwarting the resolution acknowledging the Armenian genocide. This year the politicians managed of their own accord and the resolution will be postponed even without the involvement of Jewish organizations. But a central activist in a Jewish organization involved in this matter clarified that if necessary, he would not hesitate to again exert pressure to ensure the resolution is not passed and the Turks remain satisfied. The same activist said he had received numerous requests in the past to work against the Armenian cause in Congress. “The State Department asked us, other people in the administration did, even the Turkish Jewish community asked us to act on this issue,” he said. The prevailing opinion among the large Jewish organizations is that “Turkey’s relations with the United States and Israel are too important for us to deal with this subject,” according to one community activist who was involved in blocking Resolution 193 last year. The more expansive explanation, offered in meetings and discussions, is that “the Armenian genocide is a matter for historians, not for legislators.”

    The Jewish community’s involvement in the issue of the Armenian genocide is affected by the status of Israel-Turkey relations. One senior organizational official related that during the honeymoon years of Turkish-Israeli ties, the Jewish organizations were more enthusiastic about openly helping Turkey thwart previous Armenian-related resolutions in Congress.

  2. During the recent fighting, there have been a number of articles on Israeli websites justifying Israel’s involvement in the war. Several have described Armenia as Anti-Semitic, while portraying Azerbaijan as a haven of religious tolerance. They cited results of a 2017 poll showing that Anti-Semitic attitudes were more prevalent in Armenia than in most of the European nation. Nowhere did the articles mention that perhaps Israel’s blatant support of Genocide denial by Turkey, and its long history of arms sales to Azerbaijan might have played a role in the attitudes of Armenians.

    One article was actually entitled “Is Armenia A Threat to Israel?” I found it astonishing that nowhere in the article was there an acknowledgment that Armenian lives were being lost as a result of drones and other weapons supplied to Azerbaijan by Israel.

    Most of the reasons why Israel is supporting Azerbaijan are pretty obvious, e.g., the fact that 40% of its oil comes from Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan’s opposition to the Shiite regime in Iran, etc. However, I found an article on an Israeli website that points out what I think is another significant motivation – to prevent setting a precedent that might apply to the Palestinians. So, the best outcome from the article’s point of view, would be for Azerbaijan to recapture Artsakh, regardless of what might happen to all the Armenians there. So Israel would be willing to sacrifice all the Armenian lives there because it helps keep the Palestinians in their place. I guess some lives matter more (a lot more, evidently) than others. Excerpts from the article are below.

    At this point, I am asking myself, “How could I as an Armenian EVER support the state of Israel when it is so willing to sacrifice the lives of my brothers and sisters in the homeland?” As a US citizen, I wish I could deduct the portion of my taxes that goes towards the billions we give to Israel each year. Oh I forgot – that would make me an Anti-Semite.

    Should the world avoid recognizing Nagorno-Karabakh as independent entity?

    The crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh has an uncanny resemblance to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which is why it is an Israeli interest that Nagorno-Karabakh never receives international recognition, especially given the fact that Iran has taken a stance against Azerbaijan due to their positive relationship with Israel.

    As Israeli citizens, it is pivotal that we do not recognize the independence of Nagorno Karabakh, and we should support Azerbaijan’s right to territorial integrity.

    The Armenian occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh has an uncanny resemblance to our conflict with the Palestinians. Article 15 and 16 of the League of Nations Mandate engrained Israel’s legal right to Judea and Samaria into international law, a fact that was confirmed by Article 80 of the UN Charter. Similarly, UN Security Council Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 888 ingrained Azerbaijan’s legal claims to the Nagorno-Karabakh region into international law.

    However, the Armenians presently make up the majority in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, just like the Palestinians presently make up the majority in Judea and Samaria. Thus, if the Armenians are permitted to unilaterally declare a state in Nagorno-Karabakh in violation of four UN Security Council resolutions, it could pave the way for the Palestinians being able to do the same.

  3. As a high-tech IMMORAL BANANA REPUBLIC, Israel puts PROFIT before the PEOPLE always. And they proudly and shamelessly admit their complicity: “Azerbaijan would not be able to continue its operation at this intensity without our support,” a senior source in the Israeli Ministry of Defense told Asia Times on condition of anonymity. The ministry is responsible for all official Israeli arms sales.
