Islamic State militants have ‘massacred’ at least 80 Yazidis after they refused to convert to Islam, it has been claimed. The insurgents allegedly stormed into the small village of Kojo in northern Iraq, where they spent five days trying to persuade villagers to take up their religion. When they refused, the male members of the ancient sect were reportedly rounded up and shot dead, while more than 100 women and girls were kidnapped.
‘They arrived in vehicles and they started their killing this afternoon,’ senior Kurdish official Hoshiyar Zebari told Reuters yesterday. ‘We believe it’s because of their creed: convert or be killed.’ The women and girls abducted from the village, situated around 12 miles south of Sinjar, were being taken to the ISIS-controlled cities of Mosul and Tal Afar, the official said.
Islamic State militants have killed at least 500 members of Iraq’s Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, according to Iraq’s human rights minister.
Meanwhile, American military officials last night claimed airstrikes from drones destroyed two armed vehicles south of the Iraqi town of Sinjar.Mohammed Shia al-Sudani said the Sunni militants had also buried some of their victims alive, including women and children. Some 300 women were kidnapped as slaves, he added.
In a statement, U.S. Central Command said Kurdish forces had reported that Islamic State militants were attacking civilians in the village of Kawju.
We have seen here in the UK in the last two weeks numerous demonstrations against the conflict in Gaza with the Israelis being demonised for the action they have taken against Hamas. Thousands are said to have turned out to demonstrate in London and various other cities criticising Israel for “war crimes” and subjecting Gaza to an economic boycott. These “rent a mobs” waiving Palestinian flags, wearing Yasser Arafat scarves (de rigeur for your average “leftie”) and chanting for the breaking off, of relations with Israel. Of course no criticism of Hamas and their genocidial policies towards Israel.
But where are these demonstrators now to protest against the ethnic cleansing of the Christian and Yazidi minorities? Men are being rounded up and shot, beheaded, crucified and in some cases buried alive………..but there is a deafening silence from muslims in the UK.
Thousands have been massacred by the “Religion of Peace” as the Islamic apologists like to portray Islam. Where are the thousands of Muslims protesting aginst these massacres, after all they can come out in their millions to protest about some Danish cartoons?
The stinking hypocricy of the “rent a mob” demonstrators is disgraceful………………..
