Dr. Alexander Murinson, University of London

The common respect, trust and historical amity between the Azerbaijani and Jewish peoples
contrast sharply with their perceptions of distrust and suspicion regarding their Arab neighbors,
Persians and Armenians. The Jews suffered historical persecutions in the neighboring Iran and
Armenia, a Russian Mountain province of Daghestan. Even though Persian Jewry was the oldest
Diaspora community, having an uninterrupted existence of 2,700 years, it faced many forced relocationsto the territory of present-day Azerbaijan and other areas, in particular to Central Asia. In
this context, the collective memory of shared existence between Azerbaijanis and Jews for many
centuries reinforces rational “realpolitik” calculations and geopolitical perceptions of Azerbaijani-
Israeli common interest.
