From Prince Naif:
We are Yazidi, a religious minority living peacefully in northern Iraq. We have been subjected to 74 genocides since the time of the Ottoman rule in Iraq and continues to this day. The most recent genocide happened (August 3, 2014) when the elements of the Kurdistan Regional Government withdrew its forces from Sinjar/Shengal after the entry of the terrorist group, ISIS/Daash. Without warning to our people. Sinjar/Shengal, was attacked.
Our people have been subjected to the most heinous of crimes, murder, rape, looting, kidnapping and sale of our women into the slave markets in the cities of Tal Afar, Raqqa and Aleppo (price range from $100/ $300. per female). And, after all that has happened to us, there still being no one to help us (No government, no army, no police) the most basic humanitarian services, supplies of daily life have been denied us.
All those who appear on newscasts throughout the world, the United Nations resolution did not serve the Yazidi people at all, but only served their parties political and personal interests. There are still more than 3,500 women in the grip of terror in the city of Nineveh, and in the Raqqa, Syria charging a ransom to our poor in exchange for their families, their daughters, women prisoners and there is no one that cares.
Also, there are more than 7,000 families living without the bare necessities, a very bad situation for those living in these areas, and for all Yazidi, because we do not accept the authorities of the Kurdistan (Kurd) regional government who refuses to allow supplies to reach our (Yazidi) people. President Barzani refuses to allow these material supplies reach the mountain (Mt Sinjar).
These families lack government representation in the Kurdistan province after Barzani withdrew from the Sinjar/Shengal without warning and left these families without means to survive. The organization Daash (terrorist extremists), these families do not have shelter and services and are now living well below the
poverty line, which leads to the death of many children due to malnutrition and lack of medical supplies, which also remind all organizations that believe in Humanity that donated money to these poor people have been taken by the Kurdistan Regional Government it did not help any of the current population from these donations to them, and despite all of this, Yazidi’s are still suffering under Barzani (Kurdistan Democratic Party) party fighting Yazidi everywhere. Denying a genocide against the Yazidis. Yazidi need to have access to their legitimate right, it is/was the Yazidi, not the Kurd that were/are being exterminated. Barzani wants everyone to believe this genocide happened on behalf of the Kurdish issue him to have access to the case and the support of the great powers such as the US and UN and others.
Here, we urge and appeal to you humanitarians. To lend a helping hand to us and cooperate to help our people, that have had their lives and lively hoods terminally collapsed from loss and despair of all those around them from the enemy, we have no one, but we ask you to extend us a helping hand, and we welcome you …. Please help our peaceful people.
Prince Naif bin Dawud,
President of Yezidi Supreme Council,
