To the United State Press and General Public for Immediate Release,

At the beginning of the last week the Islamic State (then known as ISIS) terrorist state captured Yezidi's sacred city of Shinjar/Shengal. IS has been brutally executing Yezidis by the thousands, raping women, kidnapping and murdering children of Yezidi faith and terrorizing the indigenous people of the area. It is also reported that 1,500 Yezidi, Christian and Shabak women and girls forcefully have been taken for Jihad marriage, and slavery. Today ,in this failed state of Iraq, IS is spreading the poison of hatred and brutality. Since Yezidism is not an Abrahamic religion, a death of a Yezidi by the hands of an ISIS militant is deemed to be the holiest and most rewarding prize.

Almost 50 000 people have tried to escape the terror of IS by climbing the local mountains yet they remain exposed to searing heat and a perilous odyssey.

It is very clear that Iraqi state neither can nor feel obligated to protect it's own citizens specially if they are Yezidis, Christians, Kurds or any others that are not like them. It is also very naive to believe that the next government of Iraq will do any better where it's all predecessors did bring nothing but destructions, pain and suffering!

It's also has been proven that Kurdistan region has shown to bring freedom, peace, prosperity, democracy to it's citizen regardless they are Kurds, Shias, Sunnis, Yazidis, Christians, Shabaks, Kakais, Armenians or Turkmen. However, Kurdistan region had been denied to acquire weaponry to protect it's border since helping to topple Saddam regime in 2003. Unlike Kurds though, the Islamic State acquired remarkable equipment upgrade as the Iraqi government’s roughly 30,000 soldiers abandoned their bases, leaving behind a massive cache of US-supplied armored vehicles and heavy weaponry.

These merciless terrorists bolstered with very advanced weapons are wrecking havoc on the defenseless people of the area.

We are pleading with the people of United States to not remain silent. Please promote to your congress person that Kurds should not left on the mercy of failed Arabic Iraqi state(s). They should not be denied defend themselves. Kurds should not be the victim again to cement another dictatorship in Iraq. Kurds should be allowed to determine their on destiny.
