Yazidis Commit Mass-Suicide After Rape by Islamic State Fighters

Yazidis Commit Mass-Suicide After Rape by Islamic State Fighters | Anti-Bullying | Scoop.it

In yet another harrowing chapter in the tragic plight of Iraq's Kurdish Yazidi population, eyewitnesses have described how girls raped by Muslim fighters from the "Islamic State" (formerly ISIS) committed suicide en-masse after returning to their families, as evidence of systematic rape by Islamists against non-Muslims continue to surface.

 

Among the tens of thousands of Yazidi refugees trapped in the Shingal mountains while fleeing IS's deadly advance through Iraq, several survivors told Kurdish Rudaw TV how a group of three girls were returned after being abducted and raped - only to hurl themselves off a cliff after being traumatized by their ordeal.

 

The Yazidi religion is indigenous to Kurdistan, and Yazidis themselves are  ethnically-Kurdish. But unlike many other Kurds, they largely avoided intermarriage with surrounding Arab tribes and thus a many of them maintained a strikingly fair "Aryan" complexion, with blond hair and blue eyes. By raping their women, IS fighters "complement" the slaughter and forced-conversions of the Yazidis by impregnating them and breaking their bloodline, according to one leading Kurdish activist.

 

"The Kurds and Yazidis are originally Aryans. But because the Yazidis are such a closed community they have retained a fairer complexion, blonder hair and bluer eyes. They don't marry non-Yazidis," Adnan Kochar, chairman of the Kurdish Cultural Centre in London, explained to the Daily Mail.

 

"ISIS have taken around 300 women from Sinjar to give to jihadists to marry and make pregnant to have a Muslim child. If they can't kill all Yazidis, they will try to smash the blond bloodline," he said.

Afghan refugee Najeeb Ahmedzai raped 19-year-old in locked bedroom

Afghan refugee Najeeb Ahmedzai raped 19-year-old in locked bedroom | Anti-Bullying | Scoop.it

A WOMAN was locked in a bedroom and raped after accepting an invitation to visit a man’s house.

Afghan refugee Najeeb Ahmedzai was jailed for four and a half years after pleading guilty to raping the 19-year-old woman on February 26 last year.

Philip Dobson, prosecuting, told Bolton Crown Court how the teenager had received a text message from a man she had met at New Year, inviting her to his home.

Against the judgement of a friend, she accepted the invitation and, when she got to the house in Lawson Street, Astley Bridge, she found Ahmedzai there as well.

 

The two men plied her with vodka and when she told them she was tired they went upstairs to a bedroom with her.

Mr Dobson said the bedroom door was locked and she was left alone with Ahmedzai, who raped her.

“She did not know what was happening. She was protesting,” said Mr Dobson. Ahmedzai would not allow her to use her mobile phone, but she managed to dial 999 to call for help after telling him she needed to go to the bathroom.

Ahmedzai had left the house when police arrived and was arrested at an immigration office five months later.

Denise Breen-Lawton, defending, said Ahmedzai, who is believed to be aged 24, was illiterate and uneducated and feared being killed by the Taliban if, as is likely, he is deported at the end of his sentence.
