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.
