In Augustthe Yazidis became victims of a genocide by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in its campaign to rid Iraq and its neighbouring countries of non-Islamic influences. Historically, the Yazidis lived primarily in communities located in present-day Iraq, Turkey, and Syria and also had significant numbers in Armenia and Georgia. However, events since the end of the 20th century have resulted in considerable demographic shift in these areas as well as mass emigration.
The majority of the Yazidi population lives in Iraq, where they make up an important minority community. They are particularly concentrated in northern Iraq in Nineveh Governorate. In the early s most of the settled population of the Syrian Desert were Yazidi.
Traditionally, Yazidis in Iraq lived in isolation and had their own villages. However, many of their villages were destroyed by the Saddam regime. The Ba'athists created collective villages and forcibly relocated the Yazidis from their historical villages which would be destroyed.
Insome Yazidis who had previously lived under the Arabisation process of Saddam Hussein complained about the political tactics of the Kurdistan Region that were intended to make Yazidis identify themselves as Kurds. The HRW report Yazidi Cleansing - Siege Electronics / Pharsh - Pain On Both Sides Part 015 criticises heavy-handed tactics.
Yazidis in Syria live primarily in two communities, one in the Al-Jazira area and the other in the Kurd-Dagh. Inthe community was estimated at about 10, according to the national census, but numbers for were unavailable. Estimates are further complicated by the arrival of as many as 50, Yazidi refugees from Iraq during the Iraq La Era - Various - From Colombia With Hate - Compilation Vol.
II. The Yazidi population in Georgia has been dwindling since Easy Listening - B.B. King - Complete Recordings 1949-1962 s, mostly due to economic migration to Russia and the West.
According to a census carried out inthere were over 30, Yazidis in Georgia; according to the census, however, only around 18, Yazidis remained in Georgia. However, by other estimates, the Im Not Lisa - Various - Red Hot Hits Vol 2 fell from around 30, people to fewer than 5, during the s. Today they number as little 6, by some estimates, including recent refugees from Sinjar in Iraq, who fled to Georgia following persecution by ISIL.
This is the third such temple in the world after those in Iraqi Kurdistan and Armenia. According to the census, there are 35, Yazidis in Armenia, making them Armenia's largest ethnic minority group.
Media have estimated the number of Yazidis in Armenia to be between 30, and 50, Most of them are the descendants of refugees who fled to Armenia in order to escape the persecution that they had previously suffered during Ottoman ruleincluding a wave of persecution which occurred during the Armenian Genocidewhen many Armenians found refuge in Yazidi villages.
There is a Yazidi temple called Ziarat in the village of Aknalich in the region of Armavir. The temple is slated to become the largest Yazidi temple in the world Yazidi Cleansing - Siege Electronics / Pharsh - Pain On Both Sides Part 015 is privately funded by Mirza Sloian, a Yazidi businessman based in Moscow who is originally from the Armavir region.
A sizeable part of the autochthonous Yazidi population of Turkey fled the country for present-day Armenia and Georgia starting from the late 19th century. Most of them have immigrated to Europe, particularly Germany; those who remain reside primarily in their former heartland of Tur Abdin.
This mass emigration has resulted in the establishment of large Yazidi diaspora communities abroad. The most significant of these is in Germany, which now has a Yazidi community of more than  living primarily in HannoverBielefeldCelleBremenBad OeynhausenPforzheim and Oldenburg.
In particular, a very large community of Yazidis now live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Its cosmogony apparently has many points in common with those of ancient Iranian religions blended with elements of pre-Islamic ancient Mesopotamian religious traditions. Early writers attempted to describe Yazidi origins, broadly speaking, in terms of Islamor Persian, or sometimes even " pagan " religions; however, research published since the s has shown such an approach to be simplistic.
Another theory of Yazidi origins is given by the Persian scholar Al-Shahrastani. Yazidi cultural practices are observed in Kurmanji, which is also used by almost all the orally transmitted religious traditions of the Yazidis.
However, the Yazidis in Bashiqa and Bahzani speak Arabic as their mother language. Some modern Yazidis identify as a subset of the Kurdish people while others identify as a separate ethno-religious group.
Conversely, during his research trips inanthropologist Ernest Chantre visited the Yazidis in today's Turkey and reported that Yazidis claimed that Kurds spoke their language and not vice-versa. Historically, there have been persecutions against Yazidis at the hand of some Kurdish tribes. Yazidism is a monotheistic faith  based on belief in one God, who created the world and entrusted it into the care of a Bird Doggin - Black Raven - Rock In Threes! of seven Holy Beings, often known as Angels or heft sirr the Seven Mysteries.
Modern-day Assyrians and Yazidis from Northern Iraq may have a stronger genetic continuity with the original Mesopotamian people. The northern Iraqi Assyrian and Yazidi populations were found in the middle of a genetic continuum between the Near East and Southeastern Europe.
As the Yazidis hold religious beliefs that are mostly unfamiliar to outsiders, many non-Yazidi people have written about them and ascribed to their beliefs facts that have dubious historical validity.
The Yazidis, perhaps because of their secrecy, also have a place in modern occultism. In William Seabrook's book Adventures in Arabiathe fourth section, starting Revolución - Various - Los Número Uno 40 (El Disco De Los Éxitos) Chapter 14, is devoted to the "Yezidees" and is titled "Among the Yezidees".
He describes them as "a mysterious sect scattered throughout the Orient, strongest in North Arabia, feared and hated both by Moslem and Christian, because they are worshippers of Satan. George Gurdjieff wrote about his encounters with the Yazidis several times in his book Meetings with Remarkable Menmentioning that they are considered to be "devil worshippers" by other ethnicities in the region.
Also, in Peter Ouspensky 's book "In Search of the Miraculous", he describes some strange customs that Gurdjieff observed in Yazidi boys: "He told me, among other things, that when he was a child he had often observed how Yezidi boys were unable to step out of a circle traced round them on the ground" p. Idries Shahwriting under the pen-name Arkon Daraulin the book Secret Societies Yesterday and Todaydescribes discovering a Yazidi-influenced secret society in the London suburbs called the " Order of the Peacock Angel.
Lovecraft 's story "The Horror at Red Hook", some of the murderous foreigners are identified as belonging to "the Yezidi clan of devil-worshippers". His ethnicity is referred to as The Vitamin String Quartet - The String Quartet Tribute To Muse (File, Album).

He is depicted as conservative, ethical, and highly principled in family life. An incredibly powerful martial artist, he is able to perceive and strike at his opponent's weakest spots, a power that he claims is derived from communicating with Malek Ta'us. In her memoir of her service with an intelligence unit of the US Army's st Airborne Division in Iraq during andKayla Williams records being stationed in northern Iraq near the Syrian border in an area inhabited by "Yezidis".
According to Williams, some Yazidis were Kurdish-speaking but did not consider themselves Kurds and expressed to her a fondness for America and Israel. She was able to learn only a little about the nature of their religion: she thought it very ancient, and concerned with angels. She describes a mountain-top Yazidi shrine as "a small rock building with objects dangling from the ceiling" and alcoves for the placement of offerings. She reported that local Muslims considered the Yazidis to be devil worshippers.
Kaplan echoes Williams's sentiments about the enthusiasm of the Yazidis for the American occupation of Iraq, in part because the Americans protect them from oppression by militant Muslims and the nearby Kurds. Kaplan notes that the peace and calm of Sinjar is virtually unique in Iraq: "Parents and children line the streets when U.
There's a lot of mystery surrounding the Yazidi, and a lot of contradictory information. But I was drawn to this aspect of their beliefs: Yazidi don't have a Satan. Malak Ta'us, an archangel, God's favorite, was not thrown out of heaven the way Satan was. Instead, he descended, saw the suffering and pain of the world, and cried. His tears, thousands of years' worth, fell on the fires of hell, extinguishing them. If there is evil in the world, it does not come from a fallen angel or from the fires of hell.
The evil in this world is man-made. Nevertheless, humans can, like Malak Ta'us, live in this world but still be good. The belief of some followers of other monotheistic religions of the region that the Peacock Angel equates with their own unredeemed evil spirit Satan : 29  has incited centuries of persecution of the Yazidis as "devil worshippers"  .
A large Yazidi community existed in Syria, but it declined due to persecution by the Ottoman Empire. The objective of these persecutions was the forced conversion of Yazidis to the Sunni Hanafi Islam of the Ottoman Empire. Yazidi Cleansing - Siege Electronics / Pharsh - Pain On Both Sides Part 015 Augustsome Yazidis were killed in a coordinated series of bombings in Qahtaniya that became the deadliest suicide attack since the Iraq War began.
In Augustat least Yazidi Cleansing - Siege Electronics / Pharsh - Pain On Both Sides Part 015 people were killed and 30 wounded in a double suicide bombing in northern Iraq, an Iraqi Interior Ministry official said. Two suicide bombers with explosive vests carried out the attack at a cafe in Sinjar, west of Mosul. In Sinjar, many townspeople are You Dont Have To Worry - Peter Frampton - Im In You of the Yazidi minority.

ISIL had previously declared the Yazidis to be devil worshippers and had taken the two nearby small oil fields and the town of Zumar as part of a plan to try to seize Mosul's hydroelectric dam.
Most of the population fleeing Sinjar retreated by trekking up nearby mountains with the ultimate goal of reaching Dohuk in Iraqi Kurdistan normally a five-hour drive by car. Concerns for the elderly and those of fragile health were expressed by the refugees, who told reporters of their lack of water.

Yazidi parliamentarian Haji Ghandour told reporters that "In our history, we have suffered 72 massacres. We are worried Sinjar could be a 73rd. Their plight received international media coverage,  which led United States President Barack Obama to authorise humanitarian airdrops of meals and water to thousands of Yazidi and Christian religious minorities trapped on Sinjar mountain.
