We are all Ezidi/Yazidi

Dr. Pipes

This is just shocking and it is the turn of the Yazidi in Sinjar in North West Iraq. The terrorist group ISIS are forcing the Yazidi from their very ancient town and homeland. Yazidi are ethnic Kurds and their religion is very much Zoroastrianism which means that they are not part of the Islamic ahl al-Kitab and they are offered one of two choices either convert to Islam or be killed and indeed there is a report about a couple that were forced to convert to Islam and then murdered. So much for the religion of peace

Who will be next? The Kurds and Turkey yes Turkey

It is disgusting when one realizes that many members of ISIS are Pakistanis via England (whose ancestors have gone through similar atrocities by the Muslim invaders on India) and now they are willing participants in a major atrocity against other human beings

Where is Obama and where is CAIR? They must be busy repeating the mantra: islam is the religion of peace! Despicable

We are all Yazidi and we support them
