The Continuing Plight of the Yazidi People; New Documentary:  Doris Stubb Epstein, Israfax, Jan. 12, 2022The nightmare began on August 3, 2014.   ISIS militants attacked the Yezidis in their millennial-old homeland in northern Iraq, killing thousands of men and older women on the spot and displacing more than 360,000 others in days. Thousands of women and young girls, some as young as nine, were raped repeatedly, sold as sex slaves, and passed around to ISIS fighters. Some fifty thousand fled to Mt. Sinjar, the holy place of the ancient Yazidi people, with just the clothes on their backs.

Iraq: After Tragedy, New Freedoms, Opportunities For Yazidi Women:  Cathrin Shaer, DW, Dec. 18, 2021 — We really appreciate your visit,” Luqman Suleiman told a group of tourists from around Iraq and Germany recently, when he met them at the entrance of the Yazidi temple, Lalish. For the ethno-religious Iraqi minority this site in northern Iraq is the equivalent of the Vatican to Catholics, or Mecca to Muslims.
