http://www.euronews.com/ The Caucasus region is a crossroads of more than 50 ethnic groups and a variety of religious beliefs. Many of these populations have inhabited the region since ancient times. The World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue is currently being held in Baku, Azerbaijan. An event where religious and opinion leaders have gathered to discuss problems relating to the relationship between different cultures and religions. Azerbaijan is one example of this Caucasian cultural mosaic, where Ethnic and religious coexistence is a major concern. Rev Canon Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff from the Anglican Church explained: "There is a lot of tension that we capture when we look at the globalisation and whether the homogenization of the global culture is something that is challenging and the way that people find it threatening on their local communities and their local identities. That's a very large part of the tensions that we discern. So we have to explore how to be authentic in our local identity within this greater context" In the Caucasus it is still possible to find extremely isolated communities. Euronews went to Khinalig, a village located at an altitude of 2300 metres on the Azerbaijani side of the Caucasus mountain range. The people from Khinalig belong to the Kettidt minority and speak the Kettish language. Some of the people also speak the majority Azerbaijani language. The village, with around 2000 inhabitants, is the oldest and most remote in Azerbaijan and among the highest human settlements in Europe. The people are Sunni Muslim, living in a secular country with a majority of Shiite Muslims. A local villager spoke to Euronews about the community saying, "It's very important to preserve the history, the culture and the language of this specific ethnicity, our ancestors lived here for 6000 years and it is important to show the world that we have such small minorities still living here". Khinalig is located in the Region of Quba in Northern Azerbaijan. It has recently gained a reputation as a trekker's paradise and the people of Khinalig have started renting rooms to foreigners who like to get off the beaten track. Qirmisi Qasaba, meaning red settlement, is just across the river in the city of Quba in the ancient Jewish part of the city. The local inhabitants are known as Dagyahudi, literally meaning "the mountain Jews". The people speak Juhury, a language made up of 70 per cent Farsi with elements of Hebrew and Turkish. According to some sources, the Jewish community were brought to Azerbaijan by the Persians and settled around 500BC. For many years they have lived alongside the Muslim people, in this part of the Caucasus the Middle East conflict seems far away. Rabbi Elazar Nisimov spoke on the issue, "We know that this conflict is temporary. We are structurally the branches that come from the same root. We are the branches of this single tree, both Muslims and Jews, here everybody understands that." One Jewish community that Euronews spoke to often meet to discuss local problems and the relationship with other communities. The leader of the Mountain Jews, Boris Simanduev, is eighty years old and is used to dealing with the other religious institutions. Despite the mutual tolerance, the two communities do not mix, they simply coexist without any tension. "In 1995 I started working here as Imam, and since that time I started cooperating for the improvement of relationships with the head of the Jewish community" said Haci Naib. Sitting beside him, Boris Simanduev, head of the Jewish community of Quba added: "In Quba's Red Settlement there are very few marriages among Jews and Muslims; it's a very small percentage. But some mixed marriages exist". The Baku World Forum addressed some of the many challenges that arise in intercultural dialogue, from conceptual frameworks and governance to policy and practice. The event has also taken responsibility for delivering the Global Agenda for Dialogue among Civilisations which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in November 2001. Overall the Forum also hopes to convey the message that tolerance is possible. A difficult task considering the thousands of unresolved religious and ethnic conflicts still raging across the world, as well as in the Caucasus.

Among these monuments one could find architectural monuments of national importance like the 6th century Albanian Aghoghlan cloister and the 14th century Malik Ajdar tomb in Lachyn, the 4th century Albanian Amaras cloister and a considerable number of Albanian temples in Khojavand, the 18th century Asgaran castle, the 14th century tombs and a number of Albanian temples from the Middle Ages in Khojaly, the 6th century Albanian Saint Jacob and 13th century Albanian Khatiravang cloisters and the 13th - 14th century Lekh castle in Kalbajar, the Albanian cloister of the 5th - 8th centuries in Gazakh, the 13th -- 14th century Mirali tomb and the 17th century caravanserai in Fuzuli, the 14th century tomb in Zangilan, the 17th century mosque complex in Jabrayil, the 18th -19th century Yukhary and Ashaghy Govharagha and Saatly mosques, caravanserais and houses in Shusha, the 19th century mosque in Aghdam, and archeological sites like Garakopaktapa, Khantapa, Gunashtapa, Uzuntapa, Meynatapa and Zargartapa residential areas of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages in Fuzuli, residential areas of Chyragtapa and Garaghajy of the Bronze Age, and that of Gavurgala of the Middle Ages in Aghdam, Imangazantapa and Gyshlag mounds of the Bronze Age in Jabrayil, rock drawings of the Bronze Age in Kalbajar, the stone box necropoli of the Bronze and Iron Ages in Khojaly, residential area and necropolis of the Bronze Age in Sadarak, mounds of the Bronze and Iron Ages in Lachyn, a cave of the Stone Age, a mound and stone box graves of the Bronze and Iron Ages in Shusha, and Shahri-Sharifan residential area of the 13th - 14th centuries in Zangilan. The occupied territories of Azerbaijan were not only rich with monuments classified as being of national importance, of which but a few are listed above, but also with those of world importance, like the 11 and 15 arch Khudafarin bridges of the Middle Ages and Niftaly mounds of the Bronze Age in Jabrayil, Albanian Ganjasar and Khudavang cloisters of the Middle Ages in Kalbajar, the 14th century Gutlu Musa oghlu tomb and Uzarliktapa residential area of the Bronze Age in Aghdam, the Azykh and Taghlar caves of the Paleolithic Age in Khojavand, and mounds of the Bronze and Iron Ages in Khojaly. Acts of barbarism are accompanied by different methods of defacing the Azerbaijani cultural image of the occupied territories. Amongst them are large-scale construction works therein, such as, for example, the building of an Armenian church in Lachyn town, the extension of the flight line of the Khojaly airport by destroying the children's music school, library, social club and infrastructure facilities. Another widespread phenomenon consists of changing the architectural aspects of different monuments like the Saatly mosque and Khanlyg Mukhtar caravanserai in Shusha town, as well as replacing the Azerbaijani-Muslim elements of the monuments with alien ones, such as the Armenian cross and writings, which have been engraved on the Arabic character of the 19th century Mamayi spring in Shusha town. www.war-culture.az
