One of our friends broght this link into my attention. Republic of Azarbaijan (former Arran) is the host of upcoming music contest Eurovision 2012. As usual the newly founded Republic of Azarbaijan which suffers from inferiority complex tries to make up a long history for herself. There are so many lie taught in the schools of Baku (former Badkubeh) and people of Azarbaijan dont know they are not Turks and indeed most of them are Iranian descent.
In this link they try to make up history for themselves. There was no mention of Azarbaijan (which they wrongly spell as Azerbaijan to give it a Turkish meaning) to that region and it was called Arran up to the modern time. Arran was always a part of Iran from ancient time and there was no Republic of Azarbaijan before early 20th century.
In the 18th century controversy between Turkey, Russia and Iran adversely affected Azerbaijan. The Turkmanchay Treaty between Russia and Iran in 1828 divided the country in two parts with the southern part consolidated in Iran and northern with Russia.
Arran was NOT dividen between Iran and Russia. Azarbaijan of Iran and Arran (modern Azarbaijan republic) both were parts of Iran and Iran lost Arran to Russia after a series of defeats in war. By this and claiming Azarbaijan whcih is Iran’s ancient province they treaten Iran’s national integrity. If I was a leader of Iran, I would have taking this as invasion to my land and would do proper actions to settle the issue once for all.
Republic of Azarbaijan (wrongly called Azerbaijan) destroys Armenian ancient sites to re-write the history according to their interest
Republic of Azarbaiajna (and Elham Aliev) himself is the world’s capital of Pan Turkism. Panturkism is the very same ideology that led former Ottoman Empire to commit several great crimes such as Armenian Genocide (death toll: 1-1.5 million innocent Armenian), Greek Genocide (death toll: ~1 million innocent Greeks).
A funny point:
The 20th century turned out to be a 360 degree transformation for the country as oil exploration began on a large with 95% of Russia’s oil extraction depending upon Azerbaijan.
Even a kid knows 360 degree transformation means 0 degree transformation, that is no change!

جمهوری آذربایجان که میزبان مسابقات سال آتی یوروویژن است در وب سایت مسابقات به دروغ بافی های معمول در مورد تاریخ کشور خود ادامه داده است. اینها با جعل تاریخ اران وانمود می کنند که کشورشان از قدیمی ترین کشورهای دنیاست که در قرون اخیر بین روسیه و ایران تقسیم شده است! در ادامه با استقلال یافتن از شوروی سابق و رونق اقتصاد نفتی شان کشور 360 درجه متحول شده است! جمهوری آذربایجان (اران سابق) پایتخت پان ترکیسم دنیاست.
