Atabek, fact tags arent needed for every individual sentence when its obvious that the entire paragraph comes from the same source, so I took those out. Anyway, I added more information and two other sections. This article needs pictures though.Hajji Piruz 02:36, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Azerbaijan: The Status of Armenians, Russians, Jews and other Minorities is a dead link. Parishan 05:58, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Indeed it's a dead link, even if it did work it's from 1993, there have been scores of other reports in last few years, including credible ones from PACE, CoE, UN and US State DEpartment. And stuff about hostility towards Russians or Jews in Azerbaijan is a pure POV and OR, which will go. Atabek 08:06, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Added more references to articles on Kurdish minority in Azerbaijan. Atabek 15:46, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Atabek, why we need fact tag for sentence about linkage Russian and lezgi separatist movement. Subsequent quote assert it.--Dacy69 16:31, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Dacy, I inserted the fact tag because the quote for Russia is not attributed to any source. Is it from any other source that's already referenced there? Thanks. Atabek 16:18, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Khachkar[edit]

Hajji Piruz, khachkars in Nakhchivan and their alleged destruction based on unverified video is not relevant on Ethnic Minorities page, because allegations of Armenia do not have much to do with essence of this page, and there is a separate page dedicated to that topic. Nevertheless, I unPOVed the quote a bit and added extra reference on counter accusations made by Azerbaijan about destruction of monuments in Karabakh. Assume good faith. Atabek 16:18, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes it is relevant. I reinserted the removed photo because that is the basis of the claim and it needs to be in there for context for the reader.Hajji Piruz 15:54, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

old book[edit]

The book "Linguistic Minorities in Central and Eastern Europe" is clearly outdated (printed in 1998) and incorrect, as it says that an attempt was made to introduce Latin alphabet in 1993. Not only this attempt succeded, but it was done in 1992. It would be best to replace this source with another: newer and veritable one. Tishkov's inclusion is also suspect, as he names the principal geopolitical opponents of Russia in the CIS in the year of the books' publication: 2003-2004 (color revolution in Georgia, BTC-BTE in Azerbaijan, and K2 US airbase in Uzbekistan -- all of which were also members of GUUAM bloc). Naharar 20:42, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Tishkov view on CIS or GUAM, or color revolution does not diminish his study of the ethnic conflict.--Dacy69 22:58, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

de Waal citation[edit]

This text is present in the article since 2007-06-15:

"Although there are no discriminatory policies against them on the personal level, the Lezghins* campaign for national-cultural autonomy is vehemently rejected by the Azerbaijani authorities. Daghestani Lezghins fear that the continued existence of their ethnic kin in Azerbaijan as a distinct community is threatened by what they consider Turkic nationalistic policies of forceful assimilation. Inter-ethnic tensions between Lezghins and Azeris spilled over from Azerbaijan to Daghestan also. They started in 1992 when the Popular Front came to power in Azerbaijan, but reached a peak in mid-1994, the time of heavy losses on the Karabakh front. In May that year violent clashes occurred in Derbent (Daghestan), and in June in the Gussary region of Azerbaijan. Since then the situation has stabilised, although Azerbaijani authorities allege a link between Lezghin activists and Karabakh Armenians and a cloud of suspicion surrounds the Lezghin community in Azerbaijan." But Google Books does not find this text in the source provided de Waal, Thomas (2003). Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan Through Peace and War. New York: New York University Press. ISBN 0-8147-1945-7. pg 122. It is no this text in this book and in any book in Google Books. In the Internet this citation is present in Wikipedia article clones only.
