Iraqi MP Breaks Down in Tears Pleading Parliament to Save Yazidis from Genocide

Published on Aug 14, 2014

Iraqi Kurdish MP from the ancient Yazidi faith, Vian Dakhil, gave a very emotional appeal in the Iraqi Parliament while in tears to rescue the Yazidis of Iraq from being exterminated by the Wahhabi Islamic group, the Islamic State, which is formerly known as the “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL).

She states that 500 Yazidi men have been slaughtered by ISIL and that Yazidi women are being taken as slaves and sold in the slave market. She also mentions that ISIL is besieging the Sinjar Mountain, where 30,000 Yazidi families reside, while depriving them of food and water.

She said – “They are dying. Seventy children have died so far of thirst and suffocation. Fifty elderly people have died because of deteriorating conditions. The Yazidis suffered 72 genocides and it is being repeated in the 21st century. We are being slaughtered, annihilated. An entire religion is being wiped off the face of the Earth. I am calling out to you in the name of humanity. Save us!”.

The Yazidis are a Kurdish ethno-religious community, representing an ancient religion that is linked to Hinduism. They live primarily in the Nineveh province of northern Iraq.

How do you explain the Paris terror attacks to a child?

How this little boy and his dad helped Paris “finally let go of their tears”

How do you explain the Paris terror attacks to a child? This father found the most beautiful way!

The dad has been praised for how he responded to his young son’s comments – and it’s even allowing some French people to ‘let go of their tears’

Since Friday, France and the rest of the world have been trying to make sense of devastating terror attacks that rocked Paris , leaving 129 people dead.

We have seen footage of people laying flowers at the site of the massacres, or silently weeping during yesterday’s two-minute silence.

But one heartwarming video circulating on social media shows the ‘humanity in the face of inhumanity’ we have come to recognize in response to the devastation – and is even helping French people come to terms with their grief.

In an interview with Le Petit Journal in front of floral tributes left for the dead, a young boy is asked if he understands what has happened.

He responds: “Yes, because they are very, very, very bad. Baddies are not very nice. We need to be really careful because we will have to move home.”

Enforced Disappearance in Syria by Assad Regime

A prisoner’s Dream

I dream of seeing my family even if only for one hour.
I want to kiss my kdis and make sure they are alive.
Even if I come back to die, I don’t mind.
_____________________________________________________________

I dream of getting out of here.
I don’t wanna waste my life here.
If I am released now, I may still be able to catch up with my
University exams…
Maybe, I wouldn’t lose that much then…

_____________________________________________________________

I dream of an antibiotic pill to cure the skin inflammation
and dimples that are eating me up.
I want to get rid of the humiliation and the ugliness of my
“scales-like” skin so that those who carry my body for burial
would not be disgusted and my cell-mates are not repulsed by
the rotting smell.

I am craving for a piece of pistachio sweets.
