On March 29, 2015 Yazda team presented the Yazidi case to the residence of Central City, State of Nebraska. The team discussed the Yazidi history, religion, and focused on the current conditions of both Yazidi and Christian minorities whose entire population has been dislocated to Internally Displaced Camps in Northern Iraq.
Yazda representative Haider Elias and President of Iraqi Christian Advocacy & Empowerment Institute Joseph Kassab, were in a meeting with David Saperstein; the Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, in U.S. State Department. The discussion was about the Yazidis and Christians` current situations in Northern Iraq.
Both Yazidi and Christian minorities have been marginalized, and discriminated in series of episodes throughout their recent history in Iraq. The most devastating campaign against the Yazidis is in last several months by Islamic State groups. These groups who kill systematically members of ethnic and religious minorities, such as Yazidis and Christians. Those who do not share their interpretation of religion and anyone who opposes their apocalyptic conception are simply faced the persecution.
Both representatives urged the Ambassador to support these religious minorities who have lived in a country for thousands of years, but still not considered citizens. These minorities who are widely considered the cradle of many of the world’s greatest civilizations, but today they are in filthy hands of religious extremists, and the World is silent about it
