in response to reader comment: The Ottomans, the Kurds, the Yazidis, and Wikipedia

Submitted by Barbara Markert (Germany), Oct 10, 2014 at 20:30

I would not use Yazid, this is a synonym of atrocities in muslim culture. (cp. Obama=Yazid) - Êzîd (kurdish), Ezide (use today in German by Ezidis), Jeside (German transkription), Jezide (French transcription), Yezid (British 1849 and German transcription since 1984)

The Yezidi were persecuted during the Armenian Genocide. One of their holy rules is to protect the kidnapped.

The massacre of Berdixan Bey in Shengal is described in Layer's Ninive and it Remains. Some Kurdish leaders took part in the Armenian Genocide. But not all Kurdish people, other resist, for example Yezidi, but not only..

72 Another Yezidan prayer is: God, please protect all 72 nations first and then us. Yezidi do not like unlimited, indefinite. Yezidi do not know something absolute in our human relative world, like the absolute evil. 72 means protect all people of the world and then us.

www.yeziden.de - in German a treasure of informations on Yezidi by Yezidi - forget wikipedia in German it is propaganda. Turkish and German authorities support that. In English search http://ezipedia.de/448/?lang=en

There was a Yezidian genocide (definition of UN resolution) in Turkey in the 80ties of 20th century. Men were murdered by Muslims. The same ideology as the IS. If you kill a Yezid, you kill the evil and win a place in paradise. Women Yezidi were kidnapped and raped. These crimes were not persecuted by the Turkish state. In Turkish passport Yezidi were marked with xxx. Yezidi were expropriated... Today there are less than 400 Turkish Yezdi living in Turkey. (cp. Robin Schneider (Hrsg.): Die kurdischen Yezidi. Ein Volk auf dem Weg in den Untergang (= Pogrom. Band 110)

The second biggest population of Yezidi in the World lives in Germany. The German Goverment ignores that. The German Goverment supply the KRG with weapons. KRG authorities announced the genocide "Shengal will be a cemetery...." in the Human Rights Report On Vulnerable Ground p. 46. There were a lot of pogroms against Yezidi and oriental Christian in 2011 in the KRG, only documented in the web.

The bombing of the Yazidis: The worst terror attack since 9/11 has been almost totally ignored by the international media.

The worst terror attack since 9/11 is not mentioned in On Vulnerable Ground published November 2009

A documentation of the human rights situation in Shengal /Sinjar in German by Yezidis:
