In my earlier post Forgotten people of the Middle East part 3 we spoke of the Yezidi.
The Yezidi are perhaps the most enigmatic people on the planet. I read six articles on them and the opinions and facts were all over the map. The most indisputable fact was that they are misunderstood and have been persecuted.
The Yezidi have been persecuted under various Islamic auspices Arab ,Turk and Kurd have persecuted these people. At the end of the article there are 34 examples of this persecution. The fate of the Yezidi is another people the left choose to ignore.
Real indigenous people are left to rot , while fake ones are promoted.
Apparently , the Yezidi did rescue 20,000 Armenians during the genocide by the Turks
and Kurds. This massacre of Christians is just another event that is swept under the rug. The fact that the Yezidis a highly persecuted people risked their own lives to save another persecuted people is a wonderful story. I have found references to the event on Armenian forums and sites. An article on this subject would be amazing reading. Sometimes man is capable of greatness in its nadir moments. The courage of the yeasty in the genocide should be praised.
