The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) has started a smear campaign against Israeli ambassador to Azerbaijan George Deek.

Report informs that the ANCA posted provocative information about the ambassador on its twitter account.

deserves credit for the Israeli-Azerbaijani close relations. His unwavering belief in our friendship is heart-warming. A friendship rooted in a shared belief in tolerance, and utter rejection of hate and antisemitism. No wonder Israelis love to visit Az.”

George Deek, a Christian Arab serving as Israeli envoy to Azerbaijan, praises Baku’s “utter rejection of hate,” ignoring a century+ of Azerbaijani racism, intolerance, violence & war against his fellow Christians in Artsakh and Armenia.”

However, some criticized the ANCA’s status. A specialist on International relations, American Irina Tsukerman, wrote: “So all Christians are supposed to be following Armenia’s propaganda and official policy? And I suppose he is supposed to ignore Armenia’s record on antisemitism and racism and ethnic cleansing? By the way, why do you tolerate anti-Israel fanatics commenting on your thread?”
