Yazidi minority in Iraq facing catastrophe | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

ISIS has brutalized members of minority religions in Iraq, but we might be only days away from witnessing one of the largest humanitarian tragedies in the history of modern Iraq. ....


Make no mistake, the Yazidi are being slaughtered. Around 500 men and 40 children have been killed. But it gets worse than even that.  

 “Our women are being used as concubines and sold in the markets,” Dakheel said. “Please save us. Save us.”

 If these poor people can't get off this mountain, and soon, then we could be looking at a tragedy of biblical proportion.
