Islamic Prophecy and Yazidi Genocide

(Before It's News)

Most of the world has never heard of the Yazidi people, certainly not before ISIS forces started slaughtering them. Unfortunately, slaughter is an understatement. For a group of people only about 700,000 strong, every 7,000 killed is one per cent of their entire people. Far more have fled their homes as refugees.  “Approximately 350,000 Yazidis are encamped around Dohuk,” (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2015/arnold-ahlert/the-plight-of-the-yazidis/) a Kurdish stronghold in northern Iraq. That means half of their “nation” now lives as refugees near Dohuk.

 

“As ISIS has boasted in its propaganda magazine Dabiq… Yazidi women and girls were abducted, subjected to sexual assault and subsequently sold as slaves to its fighters in Syria. The Islamist terror group considers the women and girls to be ‘al Sabaya,’ defined by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) as ‘women captured in war.’” An information packet handed out by ISIS at the sex slave market in Daqib says: “remember that enslaving the kuffa [infidels] and taking their women as concubines is a firmly-established aspect of Sharia.” Other ISIS propaganda suggests that slavery is supposed to be reintroduced prior to the apocalypse. The Wall Street Journal told us “They claimed justification by a Hadith that they interpret as portraying the revival of slavery as a precursor to the end of the world.” (http://www.wsj.com/articles/ancient-prophecies-motivate-islamic-state-militants-1416357441)

Sameer Karto Babasheikh, the son of the Yazidi Supreme Religious Council leader, said several months ago: “Our hostages, children, women, and girls, between 4,000 and 5,000 of them, have been captured by ISIS and sent to other areas. We need help to rescue these hostages,” he explained. “In Mosul, they opened a market to sell Yazidi girls. Some of them ended up in Fallujah, some of them were taken to Saudi Arabia and Raqqa in Syria.”  In October 2014 the United Nations estimated 5,000 to 7,000 women and girls had been sold as sex slaves. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2792552/full-horror-yazidis-didn-t-escape-mount-sinjar-confirms-5-000-men-executed-7-000-women-kept-sex-slaves.html) The same Daily Mail article tells of 5,000 Yazidi men killed at Mt. Sinjar and tells us that although beheadings were rare, “Yazidi refugees were lined up, shot dead, then bulldozed into mass graves.”

If we multiplied these Yazidi numbers to represent the same percentages of the 320,000,000 strong population of the United States, Americans would have 160 million refugees, at least 3 million dead (which would be more than all of America’s war casualties combined from all wars) and approximately two to three million women and girls sold as sex slaves.

 

One Yazidi girl found access to a cell phone in the brothel she was kept and left the now famous message on a friend’s voicemail: “If you know where we are, please bomb us. There is no life after this. I’m going to kill myself anyway. Others have killed themselves this morning. I’ve been raped thirty times and it’s not even lunch time.” (http://www.dcclothesline.com/2014/10/26/yazidi-woman-makes-chilling-phone-call-made-sex-slave-isis-please-bomb-us/)

 

Maybe we should feel sorry for the Islamic State.  Two sources of revenue are down.  We all know the price of oil has plummetted, but let’s not forget the price of sex slaves.  “The market to sell women and spoils of war has been experiencing a significant decrease, which has adversely affected ISIS revenue and financing of the Mujahideen.” (http://www.360nobs.com/2014/11/video-of-isis-selling-christian-and-yazidi-women-to-raise-money-leakswatch/)  “It then goes ahead to fix the official prices set by the terrorist group to sell Yazidi and Christian women and children abducted by ISIS members.”

  • A (Yazidi or Christian) woman, aged 40 to 50 years, is for 50,000 dinars.
  • The rate of a (Yazidi or Christian) woman, aged 30 to 40 years, is 75,000 dinars.
  • The rate for a (Yazidi or Christian) woman, aged 20 to 30 years, is 100,000 dinars.
  • A (Yazidi or Christian) girl, aged 10 to 20 years, is for 150,000 dinars.
  • A (Yazidi or Christian) child’s price, aged 1 to 9 years, is 200,000 dinars.
 
http://fx-rate.net/USD/IQD/ shows a rate of 1186 Iraqi Dinar per US Dollar as of Feb. 8, 2015. So imagine your 10 year old daughter being sold for about $126 dollars.  I think we can understand how the Yazidi people feel about the Islamic State – and the lack of an effective response from America and the rest of the world.

Even Barack Obama, who almost always plays down Islamic terrorism and defends what happens with reminders that Christians have done bad things too – even Obama said that “ISIL forces have called for the systematic destruction of the entire Yazidi people, which would constitute genocide.”

Is there any reason (as if they could be expected to be reasonable) that ISIS/ISIL/DAESH/the Islamic State/the Islamic Caliphate seems to single out the Yazidis for extreme brutality?

For one thing, the Yazidis are, unfortunately, in northern Iraq – a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Their religious views are also wildly misunderstood and mistrusted. Yazidis follow an unusual branch of Islam which some do not consider truly Islamic – perhaps analogous to the views many American Christians have of Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses. Yazidi beliefs incorporate some parts of older practices from Christianity, paganism, and the ancient Persian Zoroastrian religion. But the accusation of devil worship comes mainly from the prominent role in their beliefs played by Melek Tawwus, the Peacock Angel. Unlike Lucifer, who rebelled against God and fell from heaven, being forever cast down in permanent disgrace as the main enemy of God – Yazidis believe the Peacock Angel repented and was forgiven by God, becoming a leading force for good. The Yazidi reverence for fire as a special manifestation of God’s power is also associated with devil worship, and most of the Sunni Muslims among ISIS fighters do not consider the Yazidis to be Muslims at all.

Given the Islamic State’s “preoccupation with manifesting prophecies in modern times” (http://www.wsj.com/articles/ancient-prophecies-motivate-islamic-state-militants-1416357441) the Yazidis in Dabiq are particularly unfortunate. “Dabiq appears in sayings attributed to the Prophet Muhammad as the location of an end-of-days drama in which a Muslim army is to defeat its enemies, including a foreign army. The importance of this prophecy to Islamic State was also evident in the video released on Sunday [in November 2014] announcing the beheading of American aid worker Peter Kassig. ‘Here we are, burning the first American crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive,’ says a militant in the video. The militant denounces U.S. intervention in Iraq and vows to defeat what he calls ‘this final and last crusade.’”

I wonder what they think of the 17th century prophecies of the Shiite Mullah Majlisi, who wrote that, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (Mohammed’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that just prior to the return of the Twelfth Imam – the Mahdi – the Ultimate end times Savior of Islam – a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.” Leading “the strongest army on earth,” the new ruler in the West will carry “a clear sign” from the third imam, (whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali.) Obama’s middle name, Hussein, is believed to be that sign. The Hadith also says that “Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.” The name Barack, in both Arabic and Farsi (Persian) means blessing; Barack Hussein means “the blessing of Hussein” in both languages. Even the surname Obama, written in the Persian alphabet as O-Ba-Ma, means “he is with us,” another key point of Majlisi’s tradition.

Obama’s behavior in regard to Islam, the Middle East, and especially ISIS – is quite peculiar. Obama specifically commented on those who burned the Jordanian pilot alive in a cage recently and said: “Whatever ideology they’re operating off of is bankrupt.” Is it that unclear what ideology is in question? I think it might be, I don’t know, ISLAM.  In the Qu’ran, Surah [chapter] 9:5 says “kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.”  Ask yourself why Obama can’t seem to understand or admit the obvious.

No need for concern. Obama clarifies his thoughts on Islamic terrorism in another recent commentary: “Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ…. So it is not unique to one group or one religion.”

Wow. That’s an interesting view on Islamic terrorism. Don’t mention Islam, and blame Christianity for setting a precedent. Which was in response to Islamic forces having first taken over the formerly Christian lands of the entire Middle East, North Africa, and Spain. I wonder why Obama seems so defensive in regard to Islam.

    The anti Christ is a dimensional being with his own body. Just like in the garden and just like in gen ch. 6 he will not be human and he will not take or possess a human. He’ll come with his fallen angels in their dimensional crafts and He’ll save the world and heal its deadly wound and most of the earth will whore after him and his aliens (angels). Everything right now in the world is song up that one event. Ancient alien theory is preparing the world to accept this. And we are created in the image of them so who the hell do u think these aliens are going to look like? why are you so surprised it has been written that Lucifer will come disguised as an angel of light and so will his angels.

    Just the usual propaganda to divert your attention away from the real problem, the corrupt sock puppets running the show. They would just love your attention and anger to settle on petty religious infighting, instead of themselves. None of it is true, it’s just a Hollywood grand theater performance.

    :wink:

    Thus proving the author is either a complete moron or a violent rabble rousing liar. Because it’s OPEC the oil producing nations in the Middle east, Islamic every one, who have told America it will not reduce oil production, they can afford for oil to drop to $10 per barrel. America on the other hand relies on a high oil value because it’s currency is based on the value of oil. Hence why America want’s to force OPEC into reducing it’s oil production, thus giving America a false oil shortage to artificially inflate the value of the dollar. America has been hoisted by it’s own greedy petard. R.I.P. America, your lies are so transparent your bones are showing.

    :lol:

      I don’t think Americans are aware that their corporate bought sock puppet governors have been completely stuffed by OPEC. They are selling oil to America at a lower value than they are elsewhere, which is utterly destroying the value of the dollar. If it continues for a few more months the American dollar is dead. America is balanced on a knife edge at the moment, all it needs is one more little push (Europe sticking it’s finger up and joining Putin, it already has Greece and further EU countries are negotiating) and that will be that. We are talking a month or two, we are that close to the death of the dollar.
