| An appeal from a Yazidi leader: “Please help our peaceful people”
| Tuesday, July 05, 2016
|From Prince Naif:
"We are Yazidi, a religious minority living peacefully in
northern Iraq. We have been subjected to 74 genocides since the time of
the Ottoman rule in Iraq and continues to this day. The most recent
genocide happened (August 3, 2014) when the elements of the Kurdistan
Regional Government withdrew its forces from Sinjar/Shengal after the
entry of the terrorist group, ISIS/Daash. Without warning to our people.
Sinjar/Shengal, was attacked.
Our people have been subjected to the most heinous of crimes, murder,
rape, looting, kidnapping and sale of our women into the slave markets
in the cities of Tal Afar, Raqqa and Aleppo (price range from $100/
$300. per female). And, after all that has happened to us, there still
being no one to help us (No government, no army, no police) the most
basic humanitarian services, supplies of daily life have been denied us.
All those who appear on newscasts throughout the world, the United
Nations resolution did not serve the Yazidi people at all, but only
served their parties political and personal interests. There are still
more than 3,500 women in the grip of terror in the city of Nineveh, and
in the Raqqa, Syria charging a ransom to our poor in exchange for their
families, their daughters, women prisoners and there is no one that
Also, there are more than 7,000 families living without the bare
necessities, a very bad situation for those living in these areas, and
for all Yazidi, because we do not accept the authorities of the
Kurdistan (Kurd) regional government who refuses to allow supplies to
reach our (Yazidi) people. President Barzani refuses to allow these
material supplies reach the mountain (Mt Sinjar).
