#YazidiGenocide survivors:IS members have prayed before and after raping Yezidis women.

Islamic state:the rape of kuffar women is encouraged by the Quran.

ISIS says: very clearly that rape of kuffar women was a practice that was current during the days of the Prophet Muhammad.
Fighters from Islamic State have enshrined a theology of rape. A deeply disturbing report in New York Times describes an entrenched system in which ISIS not only glorifies sexual slavery, but claims that the rape of women is encouraged by the Quran.
The journalist talked to 21 #Yezidi Genocide survivors.
She wrote about what they told, they say that rape is being used not just as weapon of war, but also as a key part of the fighters' faith.
What we've seen in conflict in the past is that rape is often used as a weapon of war

The girls and women were taken to Mosul. As a married woman, Nada should not have been grouped with the girls, but she was. Their photographs were taken, overseen by an ISIL sex-slavery organizer (I’ll call him X; as you’ll learn, he remains newsworthy).

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.
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.
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

Yezidis&the 🇮🇶 parliament
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.
