Last quote about Yazidis

Suzanne Moore
Without an analysis of the patriarchy, we will remain powerless to change the abuse of women that is present in varying degrees everywhere. Late at night I gaze upon the faces of the women of the YPJ, the Kurdish all-female military organisation, as they unfurl flags in Raqqa. Isis is not entirely gone. Everything is still complicated. But for a moment these women have won. They vanquished the rapists. They have confronted our worst nightmares. They know what they are doing. In interviews these young women tell us that rape is a planned way to destroy a culture and that this is what Isis fighters were doing to the Yazidis. They tell us they scream with happiness when they go into battle because they know that, according to the Isis interpretation of Islam, to be killed by a woman means a fighter won’t go to heaven.feedback

ISIS (Daesh) has and continues to target members of multiple religions and ethnicities for rape, kidnapping, enslavement and death. ISIS is clearly responsible for genocide against Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims in areas it controlled. ISIS is also responsible for crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing directed at these same groups, and in some cases against Sunni Muslims, Kurds and other minorities. The protection of these groups – and others who are targets of violent extremism – remains a human-rights priority for the Trump administration.feedback

Elke Heller

It's something that separates them. It's the elephant in the room. Imagine if you have Yazidis living with Arabs, and they've just fled from an 'us versus them' situation. They try not to touch this for a long time.feedback

Nina Shea

It was always a frustration that while their monitoring was good, there really wasn't any policy implication. I think that ambassador role was mostly overseeing the reports and making speeches. Right now, the infrastructure is not there to turn [Trump's] principles into action. By the time that gets settled … these Christian communities and Yazidis will disappear.feedback

Hayder Shesho

Yes, we have been betrayed by them. Yes, we have been abandoned by them. But we are Kurds. No one represents the Yazidis.feedback

Zardasht Shingali

First, we will try and solve this through dialogue, but if not we will fight them, because it's the will of the people. They are distracting us from fighting the Islamic State. We consider Sinjar part of Kurdistan, and we have no problem with the peshmerga. But these people are gangsters, working on a Turkish agenda.feedback

Gowri Mitchka

We're poor; we've been through genocide. We don't want to be a part of this. We need help.feedback

Jamil Khalaf

We blame them all. They don't care about anyone else. Why are they fighting each other when they should be liberating our villages?feedback

Mahama Khalil

We will not accept a Turkish agenda or an Iranian agenda. Turkey and Iran are trying to pull Sinjar into a regional conflict, and Sinjar will not accept it.feedback

Hanush Horanissyan

What is common in genocides is that sexual violence is used as an inevitable byproduct of war or as a weapon.feedback

Amal Clooney - Doughty Street Chambers

There's lots of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen. I think if there are more people who now understand what's happening about the Yazidis and ISIS, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think that it's a really good thing to give that case the extra publicity that it may get.feedback

Raghid Rashid

Daesh is gone. But even if they came back I'd stay put, and I'd fight to the death if necessary. We know their tactics now and we're not scared anymore.feedback

Raghid Rashid

The fight to get Bashiqa back was tough. Daesh (Islamic State) used suicide bombers, tunnels, snipers. When we got here half the town was destroyed - including my home.feedback

Ali Khalaf

Yazidis are alone. Even if Islamic State is driven out of Mosul, we want an international force to protect us from genocide.feedback

Amal Clooney - Doughty Street Chambers

I think the international community should be ashamed that they haven't done more for the Yazidis.feedback

Paulo Pinheiro

ISIS abuse of Yazidi men, women and children amounts to genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The genocide is ongoing. From the day of the attack on Sinjar until today. ISIS has vehemently sought to erase the Yazidis through killing, sexual slaveries, enslavement, torture, inhumane and degrading treatment and forceable transfer, causing serious bodily and mental harm.feedback

John Kerry

We're very confident we've done an enormous amount. The fact is that Daesh kills Christians because they are Christians. Yazidis because they are Yazidis. Shi'ites because they are Shi'ites.feedback

John Kerry

Daesh is genocidal by self proclamation, by ideology and by actions. We must recognize what Daesh is doing to its victims. Naming these crimes is important but what is essential is to stop them.feedback

Awaz Khalil

We are here to ask for the protection for Yazidi refugees. They are a minority, they need protection to be safe from the terror of ISIL, especially our women who are still in captivity and are being badly treated.feedback

Raphaele Tavernier - Euronews

They have left the camps to come to this building,which is still not yet finished. It makes the lives of Christians and Yazidis a little more bearable after facing the harsh reality of being forced from their homes. What is perhaps striking are their smiles, their resilience. They ask for nothing. Their message is 'Pray for us.. help us to return home.feedback

Douglas Bazi

When our history and our name and everything are obliterated, that really is a genocide. The groups who have suffered the most from what's happened in Mosul are our brothers the Yazidis and the Christians. I am not surprised if ISIL kills people of that religion. What a way to treat them, and those who have no religion!feedback

Masrour Barzani - United Nations Security Council

But hopefully, our hope is, that all those people (the Yazidis on Mount Sinjar) will eventually be able to go back to their own homes and villages and towns. But those that are in need of evacuation now, a corridor has been opened to evacuate those people.feedback
