Yezidis&the 🇮🇶 parliament
The Yezidi religion is1of the oldest religions in🇮🇶. It dates back centuries. Its ancient beliefs, customs&even alphabet have all influenced several other religions&cultures within🇮🇶, including Chaldean, Assyrian&Sumerian civilizations
Yezidis have never opposed or attempted to persecute any other ethnic or religious group. They have never attempted to undermine or destabilize any regime that has ruled over Iraq.
Indeed, they shy away from even supporting one political party over another.

Despite their peaceful existence in Iraq, different regimes would always attempt to persecute them.

[1] I am a #Yazidi and not yet 17, but I have a story to tell the world. My people have always been peaceful and non-aggressive. We believe in God and humanity and respect other religions. I grew up in a village called Wardia, near #Sinjar, #Iraq. We lived with honor and dignity.
[2] We were a very close community and pretty much kept to ourselves. When I was only 13, we heard that ISIS was headed toward us and also that they were doing very bad things. #YazidiPlight
[3] We fled to the mountain, but ISIS intercepted all of us and forced us back to our village. By that time many of our very own #Muslim neighbors had joined in with ISIS and were also killing many #Yazidis.
