A wonderful synopsis of history and society, written by Haroon at Ali’s new site.  As a history buff, I was so excited to learn something new, I had to share.

Did you know, for example, that Azerbaijan was once known as Albania? Did you know that more Azeris live in Iran than in Azerbaijan? Did you know that Azerbaijan was the world’s first Muslim republic? (Hint: That lasted two years.) On a more personal note, did you know that Azerbaijan is my favorite Muslim country which has lost a war to its smaller neighbor, which then went on to occupy an unforgettable chunk of its clearly violable territory? (No, not Egypt Syria Jordan Lebanon. Azerbaijan!)
