  1. It was kind of these Israelis to do this.

    But what about Israel supplying Azerbaijan with hi-tech weapons and military intelligence used against Armenians last year?

    Why has Israel not crticized Azerbaijan’s use of terrorists against Artsakh last year?

    Why did Israel resupply Azerbaijan with weapons while last year’s war was ongoing?

    Why has Israel not recognized the Armenian Genocide while at the same time it demands universal recognition and reparations for the Holocaust?
