Non-Muslim Minority Facing ISIS Genocide in Iraq Beg Obama for Water

yazidi-ap-photo_0_0_0_0

This was what Obama said when he chose to engage in an illegal unilateral attack on Libya on behalf of Islamic Jihadists.

“Now we saw regime forces on the outskirts of the city.  We knew that if we wanted — if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.”

Obama’s claim of a massacre was a complete and total lie.

But now there is a situation in which a non-Muslim minority faces actual genocide at the hands of Al Qaeda in Iraq.

The World Leader of the Yazidis issued a desperate plea to Obama, among others, earlier this month.

“I ask for aid and to lend a hand and help the people of Sinjar areas and its affiliates and villages and complexes which are home to the people of the Yazidi religion.”

The situation has gotten much worse since then. The Kurds who protected the Yazidi villages were outgunned by ISIS’ heavy artillery. Air support from the US could have made the difference, but unlike Benghazi, Obama didn’t care about protecting non-Muslims from Islam.

When radical Islamist fighters stormed the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar over the weekend, the Yazidi minority who call it home fled into the surrounding mountains in fear of their lives.

Now, trapped without food, water or medical care in the summer heat, thousands of families are in desperate need of help.

It’s already too late to save dozens of children who’ve died of thirst.

Lawmaker Vian Dakhil, the only MP representing the Yazidi minority group in Iraq’s Parliament, said in an impassioned speech that 70 Yazidi children had died so far, that women were being killed or sold into slavery and that 500 men had been “slaughtered.”

“Similar to the fate of every other Iraqi, my people are being killed. The Shiites, Sunnis, Christians, Turkmen, Shabak people have been killed — and now the Yazidi people are being killed.”

This is real genocide, but the same hatefilled freaks shrieking about Gaza and waving photos of dead babies in every city won’t work up a fraction of an erg of outrage.

Now the refugees are begging Obama for water.

Stranded on a barren mountaintop, thousands of minority Iraqis are faced with a bleak choice: descend and risk slaughter at the hands of the encircled Sunni extremists or sit tight and risk dying of thirst.

Humanitarian agencies said Tuesday that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar two days earlier. But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.

Unable to dig deep into the rocky mountainside, displaced families said they have buried young and elderly victims of the harsh conditions in shallow graves, their bodies covered with stones. Iraqi government planes attempted to airdrop bottled water to the mountain on Monday night but reached few of those marooned.

“There are children dying on the mountain, on the roads,” said Marzio Babille, the Iraq representative for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “There is no water, there is no vegetation, they are completely cut off and surrounded by Islamic State. It’s a disaster, a total disaster.”

No one is asking Obama to bomb Al Qaeda in Iraq the way that he bombed Gaddafi on behalf of his Muslim Brotherhood LIFG pals. That’s obviously not going to happen.

Like ISIS, Obama appears to see non-Muslims as a lesser breed unworthy of his intervention.

But they are asking for water.

Desperate to reach tens of thousands of people who fled the Islamist militant takeover of the northern Iraqi city of Sinjar and are now trapped in rugged mountains outside the city, international aid officials and representatives of the Kurdistan Regional Government on Wednesday called for the United States to mount a humanitarian mission to reach the beleaguered refugees.

“We are discussing these options with the United States,” said the Kurdish official, who spoke anonymously because he was not authorized to be quoted by name. “We need C-130s to drop huge amounts of water, food and medicine into the area, but this can be very difficult.”

The C-130 is a rugged workhorse transport plane that is well suited for such a mission. But an airdrop likely would require aircraft to fly at an altitude low enough that they could be targeted by Islamic State forces on the ground.

Officials at the American consulate in Irbil did not respond to a request for comment.

Considering that Obama and Hillary wouldn’t provide air support to the Americans being murdered in Benghazi, I would say the chances here are slim.

Here is the lie that Obama told to get the United States into Libya…

“We knew that if we waited — if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.”

Let’s see if Obama’s conscience responds to any people except Muslims.

    Women and children should not be targeted in war. That is more or less stated in the Koran. Yet the Yazidis knew ISIS would selectively interpret the Koran.

    Where is Saudi Arabia, Turkey or Iran in helping these 40,000 refugees in their region?

    The Saudis do have military transport aircraft that could airlift water.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      If the Saudis are going to airlift anything to anyone, it’s going to be weapons and it won’t be to a bunch of infidels.

      • truebearing

        The silencing of the true America grows louder. We are being represented as a nation by minions of evil with no compassion. Obama’s indifference is depraved and malevolent. America’s bete noire has become the world’s.

        Obama is worse than someone who sees a terrible accident but drives by, without offering help or calling for an ambulance. He blocks the road from both directions so no help can reach the victims.

        What is humane or proportionate in his utter lack of remorse in letting people be raped, butchered, starved, and dehydrated to death?

        It is hard for me to comprehend the depth of Obama’s indifferent, passive cruelty, despite writing on various websites for seven years, trying to warn people of his evil. Now it is being manifested and we (America) can’t even get water to the victims of Satan’s religion.

        I am pointing out the Islam is a purported religion of peace. I did not quote the passage from the Quran or Hadith, but I probably will next time. I definitely will if Americana or hiernonymous start jumping my sh_t. The purpose of my post was to show hypocrisy.

        I looked up the stats on the Saudi Air Force. They do have the requisite cargo aircraft that could drop pallets of water. Manpads could/would be a problem, but less so if the Saudis flew out of Turkey (it being a humanitarian mission and all.

        In one tradition, women and children should not be killed (Bukhari, Jihad, nos. 3014-3105; Muslim nos. 4319-4320; Abu Dawud, no. 2662)

        http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Arlandson/jihad.htm

        I am pointing out what the Saudis could do. they have the money. They purport to have a “good” religion. So let’s see them do something.

        I could rail about Obama, but that is a lost cause. All the oxygen had been sucked up in the media over his ebola confab. This confab is important. The press can talk about it and how it is a tragedy and blot out that thousands of people are doing who we could save.

        • truebearing

          I apologize for my ignorant response. I now understand your posts.

      “Women and children should not be targeted in war. That is more or less stated in the Koran.” Bullshit. Only muslim women and children are not to be targeted in war. This is not a selective interpretation. All muslims follow this code. Jewish women and children, as well as christian women and children, are open game for muslims. The koran is as evil as the necromonicon.

      • Pete

        It is stated by Muslims as part of their beliefs. I did not say that they followed it much at all. It is clear ISIS does not follow it.

        There are more passages that deal with dividing captured women and children up as war booty.

        Answering Islam has more on the Qu’ran.

      It’s the Saudi that are funding ISIS!!!! They will never help because they are delighted to witness the Yazidis being slaughtered!

      • Pete

        I don’t know that it is a line item in their budget, but more than enough wealthy Saudis fund various terror groups, it makes little difference in the end.

        The Saudi Royal family pays itself what it wants out of the state coffers. So if more than a few family members support terrorists and the Saudi intel does nothing about it, in the end it makes no difference whether it is “official” state policy or not.

    Put an ad in Craig’s list:” wanted non officials, non NGOs, non give a damn about the torpedos bikers,vets,NRA members,reloaders,martial arts training helpful but not necessary; to obtain/rent airplanes, pick up supplies, and go for a flying vacation overseas.” Do this one for the Gipper.

    This is the second time America screwed the Kurds. They got gassed under Saddam when Bush senior made it look like Americans would actively support a rebellion. Then the Peshmerga worked with us doing the Iraq war and this is how we repay them a second time. The USA is entering into the region of a Rome like despot. No the Israel haters won’t care but no one cares to mention Hamas is an extension of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palis are the socialists favorite because of their willingness to concede European supremacy during WWII and do evil on behalf of the Nazis. Every non-Pali never gets a moments thought and there has been plenty of atrocity.

    Problem is if we remain silent we have blood on our hands. Maybe we can’t get the despot to do anything but we can show the world we know he is a despot.

    Why not invite the various non-Muslim groups in the Middle East who are being driven out to build settlements and preserve their way of life in the West Bank alongside the Jewish settlements. In addition to Yezidis these include the various Christian sects as well as Sabeans and Zoroastrians. Since these are of exactly the same race as the Muslims it will be difficult for the world to accuse Israel of ‘racism’ (though of course they will try).

    • Chaz

      Yes. Population exchange. Qu’far to the Land of Israel (in its entirety), Arabuslims to who cares where.

      • Vic

        Great. But they’re not the same race as the muzz at all. They predate the a-rab in these lands by hundreds and even thousands of years and have maintained their faiths, cultures and bloodlines under the long izlamic occupation.

  • liz

    Oh, but he’s just “appalled” at Israel for defending itself.
    Just a tad selective in his outrage.

  • Ahmad

    Pete the Sad part is that it is not stated in the Koran. Women are viewed as lot like swords and money, they take them and marry them and rape them or sell them, that has been the fate of innumerous women across the centuries in the name of Islam. Turkey during the Ottoman Empire was known for this. One of the reasons I left Islam.

  • Yehuda Levi

    The world (and Obama) only care about Palestinian Arab children, not Israeli or Yazidis children.

    You have to look like them or hate America to get noticed.

  • camp7

    How tragic. Not only are these Yazidi civilians trapped on a barren mountain surrounded by murdering jihadist madmen, but their call of despair is directed to an administration that helped put them there.

    Their children and elders die of thirst, and today, August 6, 2014, at 2:30 PM, Obama participates in Session Three of the President’s Schedule: Governing the Next Generation.

    How satanically ironic.

  • GB

    This must have been a very tough column for you to write emotionally, these are terrible events and it is awful to know that there is somebody who could make a difference, but refuses to, for the reasons you point out. And what about Samantha Powers, the person who wrote the book on genocide, yet, having achieved power and influence, stands idly by as mass murder is committed.

    • Raymond_in_DC

      Apparently Powers saw no Responsibility to Protect the people of Darfur or southern Sudan. Yezidis shouldn’t get their hopes up.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Power issued a statement. Problem solved. I bet she even tweeted something.

  • truebearing

    It gets monotonous repeating the same unfortunate truth, but Obama is evil. He has clearly sided with evil. He is as cold–blooded as any reptile. The suffering or death of any human being, outside of the evil groups he identifies with, mean as little to him as bugs hitting the windshield. He is an incarnation of malignant narcissism who has intentionally unleashed the human scourge known as Islam. Expect no mercy from Obama for any of Islam’s victims.

    • George Clark

      H.P. Lovecraft warned us about Obama. He called Obama Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos.

      • Habbgun

        HP Lovecraft would be a Paulbot if he was alive today.

        • George Clark

          Maybe, but I doubt it. I think that Lovecraft trusted the government that governed least, as did Thoreau.

      Yeah, it’s just great when you have a sociopath running the asylum.

    I expect Obama to get right on this, as soon as he has a break in his grueling golf, party, vacation and fundraising schedule. On Imam Barry’s careful direction,
    we will see Jen Psaki holding up a card that says #SendColdBeveragesForThirstyIraqis.
    That should do it.

  • muchiboy

    Israelis’ are quick to point out the persecution of Christians by Muslims,but conveniently forget or ignore the Occupation,Displacement and Ethnic Cleansing,de fact and/or otherwise,of Palestinian Christians,along side their fellow Muslims,by Zionists and the Diaspora.Just a reminder,eh!

  • muchiboy

    Someone recently made reference to the Hatikvah,and as I played it I thought;

    Now,National anthems are meaningful for their People,and Israel is no exception.That this is a Jewish anthem,for a Jewish State,for a Jewish People,is all too clear.And,of course,that’s what Zionism was,and is,about.
    That Jews have a connection,at the very least,to this land is indisputable.It was once the Jewish Homeland,as it is now,after some 2,000 years of absence for the Diaspora.There has always been a Jewish presence in Palestine,i.e.Palestinian Jews,including towns and cities,even though for hundreds and thousands of years they have been a minority to the (Palestinian) Arab majority.
    Interestingly,the accompanying video for HATIKVAH says ” Welcome to Israel”,but this obviously does not apply to the millions of Palestinian Arabs and their descendants who used to call this their Homeland,not since their displacement and ethnic cleansing by Zionist Occupiers and Settlers.As to the “hope of 2,000 years”,well,during this 2,000 years of the “Jewish soul yearning towards the East ” many of the Diaspora,(i.e.,Jews), were living in their own Western homelands,e.g.,Europe,America,etc.Even today,and more so during their occupation of the Palestinian Homeland,one look at their names,hair color,features,languages,etc. is telling of their national or mixed origins.”To be a free nation in our own land”,came at the expense,and still does,of the Palestinian People.These were Arab farms,villages,towns and cities,neighborhoods,markets,schools,hospitals,Christian Churches and Muslim Mosque.These were the homes and beaches of the Children of Palestine.No longer.Zionist Occupation,Displacement and Ethnic Cleansing,de facto and/or otherwise,seen to that.And the Leveling of Gaza,the “massacre” of her Innocent Civilians and Children,can only be seen as a calculated,ruthless and chilling attempt by a brutal Zionist Regime to neutralize any and all Palestinian Resistance.And the shameful complicity and Silence of America,Canada,the West,etc., and the UN,is Deafening.
    Zionist strategy will fail,as most such strategies have and will fail,because the horror witnessed and experienced by these children of Gaza will burn deep and cold,remembered by future generations.One has to hope that,in time,Jews will feel secure enough that morality will precede or replace fear,dismissal and denial,and they will open both Hearts and Borders to those Children of Palestine they have for so long denied Homeland and Birth Right.Until then,Palestine will Resist,with or without Hamas and the PLO,with or without America and the West,with or without a partner who acknowledges its Sins and Ethical Trespasses Against them.
    And again,God Bless the Children of Palestine.God Bless the Children of Gaza who died from IDF bombing and shelling,and may God have Mercy on the Souls of the IDF members,Fallen or otherwise,responsible for their deaths.
    Israelis are quick to point out,when reminded of the Palestinian War Refugees and the Ethnically Cleansed Palestinians,that 20% of Israel is Palestinian Arab.While these are Israeli citizens,unless by hook or by crook Israel can change their status,through land/border exchanges,it is noteworthy that there is little to nothing in the National Anthem of Israel for its’ Palestinian citizens.That is the nature of a Zionist state.
