  1. Yazidi

    The Yazidi are a Kurdish religious group, who represent an ancient heterodox religious sect linked to Zoroastranism and Sufism. They currently live primarily in the Nineveh Province of northern Iraq. Additional communities in Transcaucasia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Syria have been in decline since the 1990s, their members having emigrated to Europe, especially to Germany. Their religion is seen as a highly syncretic complex of local Kurdish beliefs that contains Zoroastrian elements and Islamic Sufi doctrine introduced to the area by Sheikh Adi ibn Musafir in the 12th century. The Yazidi believe in God as creator of the world, which he placed under the care of seven holy beings or angels, the chief of whom is Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel.

  1. Yazidi

    The Yazidi are a tribe of the 'great' Sumerians. The Yazidi are not Kurds, they are not Arabs. And they are definitely not Muslims. The Yazidi's culture and religion are approximately 12,000+ yrs old. The oldest on earth. Since the dawn of time, other people's have stolen their history, their heritage, their lands. This is still ongoing today. It started over 5,000 years ago.

    The Yazidi are the 'truth' and that's why they are being exterminated today.
