Yet another instance of Muslim persecution of non-Muslims that is being virtually ignored by the mainstream media and the international “human rights community.” Here the press release (thanks to Satya):
Washington D.C. Oct 24, 2014: About 200 Yazidis from all over US along with members of Christians, Hindus and Jewish communities joined hands to make an urgent plea for the U.S. intervention to halt the murderous ISIS campaign of forced conversion, enslavement, and genocide of Yazidi men, women, and children in the Sinjar area of northern Iraq. Since their initial attack on Yazidi homelands on Aug. 3, the Islamic terror army ISIS has killed several thousand Yazidis, displaced over 300,000, and engaged in the mass kidnapping of nearly 7,000 Yazidis — primarily women and girls.
They made an urgent plea for immediate action for the following:
1) Evacuate about 1200 families from top of mountain Sinjar while providing protection to the mountain by intensive air strikes and ground forces if needed. Provide heavy weapons and ammunition by air to the Yazidis and friendly forces on top of the mountain.
2) Immediate action to free about 5000 hostages held in four villages who were Identified and whose information was provided to US government and DOD. The other hostages must be freed too but their freedom will be harder since they are held in area difficult to reach, i.e. Syria and other places.
The enacting of selling Yazidi women and girls for sex slavery at the rally brought tears to both Yazidis and bystanders. They appealed to Obama and the world to pay attention to their plight and recognize what is happening to Yazidis is a holocaust that world simply cannot ignore. Many Yazidis came in buses travelling more than 20 -24 hours each way to DC.
