2)A few days later, he headed to al-Hol, gathered a group of Kurdish security guards and went to the tent to rescue the girls.

Sinjar’s #Yazidis and their #Arab and #Kurdish Sunni neighbours lived in peace until 3 August 2014. The date is scrawled on the city’s ruins. It is seared in memory. On that day, ISIS militants and their local Sunni supporters overran the district and surrounding areas.
-1-
Massacres, forced conversions to #Islam, and kidnappings ensued. Militants took women and girls as sex slaves in a campaign of terror that #Yazidis describe as 74th attempt to annihilate them because of their faith.
-2-
Like others be4 them,ISIS followers regard Yazidis as devil-& sun-worshipping apostates. Yazidism is a closed religion that forbids converts,enforces a strict caste system,brands followers who abandon it infidels&prohibits intermarriage with non-Yazidis,reinforcing its insularity

Huge numbers of men were executed; thousands upon thousands of women & children were abducted & wilfully subjected to sexual violence. The religious minority was to be eliminated and the will of the victims broken.

<THREAD> Buried in yesterday's news: the Knesset voted AGAINST recognising the #YazidiGenocide perpetrated by Islamic State. Why?
The #YazidiGenocide vote fell 58-38 along clear party lines. Netanyahu's coalition voted against. The opposition mostly voted in favour. The Arab Joint List--they weren't even in the room.
Deputy FM Tzipi Hotovely explained the official line: "We as a government cannot agree to this bill... until there's a UN resolution on the matter." (This must be the first time Israel is waiting for instructions from the UN for matters of policy.)

The Yezidi religion is1of the oldest religions in🇮🇶. It dates back centuries. Its ancient beliefs, customs&even alphabet have all influenced several other religions&cultures within🇮🇶, including Chaldean, Assyrian&Sumerian civilizations

Yezidis have never opposed or attempted to persecute any other ethnic or religious group. They have never attempted to undermine or destabilize any regime that has ruled over Iraq.

Indeed, they shy away from even supporting one political party over another.

Despite their peaceful existence in Iraq, different regimes would always attempt to persecute them.

[1] I am a #Yazidi and not yet 17, but I have a story to tell the world. My people have always been peaceful and non-aggressive. We believe in God and humanity and respect other religions. I grew up in a village called Wardia, near #Sinjar, #Iraq. We lived with honor and dignity.
[2] We were a very close community and pretty much kept to ourselves. When I was only 13, we heard that ISIS was headed toward us and also that they were doing very bad things. #YazidiPlight
[3] We fled to the mountain, but ISIS intercepted all of us and forced us back to our village. By that time many of our very own #Muslim neighbors had joined in with ISIS and were also killing many #Yazidis.
