A close look at the first genocidal massacre by Christians against Muslims in the modern era before Balkan genocides by Christians against Muslims. The conquest of the Azerbaijan Caucasus Mountain town of Khojaly by Armenian terrorists and Russian troops the night of February 26, 1992. Personal interviews of women survivors of that night describing their capture, torture and rape by Armenian terrorists. Personal interviews of refugees and displaced Azerbaijanis bring the story to the reader that other observations simply cannot do. A young refugee woman who – as a child — slept with her shoes on so she could run to a bomb shelter when Armenian and Russian guns bombarded her town brings the story down to anyone who is a parent and can relate to the fear of nightly shelling and night after night in bomb shelters hiding, wimpering and crying through the shellings.
About the Author:
Raoul Lowery Contreras
Raoul Lowery Contreras -- Author, political activist, radio/television host and commentator brings decades of political experience and foreign policy input to elected officials to book number 13 and more than a thousand published newspaper, magazine and Internet articles. MURDER IN THE MOUNTAINS is Contreras' first foray into the complicated politics and reality of the Silk Route, for a country and conflict decades old between Christian Armenia and Muslim Azerbaijan. A poverty stricken country - Armenia and an oil and gas rich Azerbaijan have been observing a "cease fire" negotiated a quarter century ago that resulted in one fifth of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenian forces backed up by Russian troops. One million Azerbaijanis were displaced by the war. Contreras has personally interviewed and spoken to many of the displaced. Their stories are in his book.
