ISIS Persecution of Minorities in Iraq is a War Crime!

The Radical Jihadists, ISIS take over minority towns in Iraq

   My last post about the War Crimes and human rights violations committed by ISIS militants in Iraq has been my most read post this last week. Obviously, people are interested about what is happening in Iraq. People are saying, ‘We are hearing of people dying daily in Iraq, what’s really happening?’ I have received emails from people asking me to write about the current situation in Iraq.
     One particular area that draws my interest in Iraq is the bloody hatred and persecution of minority groups by the ISIS militants. The Kurdish minority Yazidis have long been regarded as devil worshippers by Sunni jihadists (ISIS)  who have targeted them since the US invasion. The Yazidis are being persecuted for their religion. Recently, when the ISIS attacked Sinjar, a town inhabited by the Yazidis, in their usual brutal manner, killed 500 people including 40 children and forced 130,000 people to flee the town. Now, the extremists have taken over the town which is now completely devoid of its normal population, threatening to kill anyone who refuses to be converted.

      Sadly, about 40,000 Yazidis, mainly women and children fled into the mountains and are now stranded, with little food and no water. They face starvation if they stay up and bloody deaths if they return down into the hands of the blood thirsty extremists. (The U.S has now provided some relief by landing with jets and is also planning to conduct air strikes on the militants below in order to save the extremely vulnerable Yazidi civilian population above).
     It is now very obvious, even to the U.S that they failed in Iraq and that the country is now spiralling out of control. It is also becoming clear that the ISIS is taking their mission of expanding their ‘Islamic Caliphate’ very seriously.
The ISIS is also strongly attacking the Christian minority. It has taken over many Christian towns and forced the Christians to flee or die! Lately, it took over Qaraqosh, the largest Christian town in Iraq. Other towns, Tal Kayf, Bartella and Karamlesh have also being emptied of original populations and now under the control of jihadi militants.

     The events unfolding in Iraq are so shocking. Millions have been displaced since the conflict began months ago, making it the crises that has rapidly generated the most displaced people in decades. Thousands of civilians are fleeing towns as the ISIS keeps taking over them and adding them to the large amount of areas it already controls as its ‘Islamic state’  I do not need a prophet to tell me that the blood thirsty ISIS has committed grave war crimes as well as crimes against humanity and so many forms of human rights violations which they must be held accountable for. The systematic persecution of minorities by the ISIS is a very grave war crime which we shouldn’t continue to sit back and watch.

    Hashim Yonis and other leaders are trying to fight the appeal of terrorist groups by calling for improved education and opportunities for more Somalis to better mix into American society.
