An independent website created by Azeri-Americans–AzerbaijanForBush.com–provides a clear look at Azerbaijan’s view on the presidential candidates.
The website comes out in full support of President Bush’s policies–which it says have supported the independence and security of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
It says that President Bush’s administration has sought to de-link American aid to Azerbaijan from aid to Armenia–reflecting a belief that each of America’s allies should be dealt with on its own merits.
It also reports that "President Bush has worked to abolish US sanctions against Azerbaijan instigated by the Armenian lobby in 1992. By contrast–Senator Kerry was a sponsor of that pro-Armenian legislation."
In its report card comapring President Bush to Senator Kerry–the website notes that while Bush is not endorsed by any Armenian or pro-Armenian political parties–news organizations–or NGOs–Senator Kerry’s campaign is supported by the Armenian political parties in America–including the ARF–which it calls "the notorious Armenian Revolutionary Federation historically supporting terrorism–the Hunchakyan (the Bell)," as well as the Armenian National Committee of America–calling it the "main Armenian lobby and propaganda organization."
