Irәvan.

I came across a bizarre site; a large and nicely done Armenophobe site in Armenian! It is strange to read that the Armenians are bad people, deserve to be wiped out of the face of the Earth and the Azerbaijanis will do it soon. They also have articles allegedly written by Georgians badmouthing the Armenians. Lately such anti-Georgian propaganda has become the new passion of the Azerbaijani intelligence agencies.

When you read stuff like that in English or Russian, you expect it from the authors. But this site is an Azerbaijani propaganda site and is clearly written by Armenians in Eastern Armenian.

I wonder how much these Armenians are being paid to work for the Azerbaijani security services. I also wonder about the impact of such propaganda aimed at us and how many people will take this seriously.

Here is the link if you want to check it out.

That's pretty ridiculous. I really don't see the point of a propaganda site talking about how evil YOU. I mean maybe they are going for a Tokyo Rose effect, but she was just telling Americans in their own language how they were going to lose the war, etc.
I don't see what kind of an audience an "Armenians must be destroyed" 'news' site could possibly garner amongst Armenians. It seems like a pointless exercise in futility to me, waste of money.

Probably written by an Armenian who didn't get to leave that increasingly fascistic country. Someone tell the translator that "Anadolu" is not an Armenian word. Never has been.

And Ilia Chavchavadze did write that ridiculous piece, Nazarian. It's easy to see what motivated him to write it. He is described as a Georgian nationalist, and as such I'm sure he was disturbed by Tiflis's near-majority Armenian population at the time.

I listened to their radio programs. Initially they have a disclaimer that it is there to provide fair journalism but then they start talking about aggression, expansionism and terrorism. The anchor was a Russian speaking lady trying to speak Armenian.

The entertainment value of the site diminished quite quickly.
