Sixty Yazidi Girls Per Month Reportedly Commit Suicide After Rape By ISIS Terrorists

By Darren Smith, Weekend Contributor

yazidi-women-facing-wallAccording to an Iraqi based aid worker, who identified himself only as Yousif, approximately two girls a day commit suicide in the aftermath of being raped by ISIS Terrorists. The news and other corroboration of reports of inhumanity directed toward women in girls are unimaginable. Compounding the horror experienced from gang rapes in open streets, being sold into sexual slavery, or subjected to other outrages is both the stigma and shame forced onto women and girls–a furtherance of ISIS’ crimes against humanity. It also shows a macabre window into a policy of ethnic cleansing by ISIS at several levels.

“There are different methods they use inside there, whether they hang themselves, cut themselves, different ways they do it,” Yousif said. “They don’t have hope that their people will accept them, at the same time they don’t want their babies.

Social and personal pressure, according to Yousif, encourages pregnant victims to have either abortions or abandon their baby at orphanages.

Concerning a pre-teen girl who allegedly became pregnant after being sexually abused by ten men, Yousif said: “ISIS was the father, she had been raped by more than nine or 10 men. She is very tiny. If she delivers naturally or by caesarean, she will die.”

Reports are many in the media of groups such as Christians and other religions suffering forced conversion to ISIS’ perverse religious doctrines under threat of death or harm to family members. Additionally those perceived to be racially impure, in this case the Yazidi who descend from Aryan ancestry and often have traits including blue eyes, lighter skin, and in some cases blonde hair, suffer rapes with the goal of passing genetics to offspring who resemble the girls’ attackers and ISIS’ version of a model people. That is, if ISIS does not kill them outright. ISIS regards the Yazidi as a devil people and initially called for all to be exterminated.

Ziyad Shammo Khalaf, of the NGO Yazda that offers assistance and first aid to the persecuted Yazidis, told IBTimes UK: “The girls were dragged away from their mothers. If the mothers pleaded them not to give away their daughters, they were beaten and tortured.”

It is not ISIS alone that engages in such savagery. The terror group Boko Haram recently pledged its allegiance to ISIS in March, 2015 and is using rape as a weapon of war against women in Nigeria.

A notable example is found in the Chibok school girls kidnapping involving reportedly over two hundred, seventy five girls. Public displays of the girls sent by Boko Haram show forced religious conversion and forced marriages involving the sale of the girls for a US$12.50 bride price. Escapees reported walking for days and in some case weeks to elude recapture and stated the girls remaining collectively suffered daily rapes at the hands of their captors.

Another faction in Africa is the Christian Terrorist Organization the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Since beginning its military insurgency in the mid 1990’s a common tactic is to kidnap children and press them into military service. Estimates are that at least ten thousand child soldiers of both genders have fought in the LRA. Children suffer high amounts of casualty in combat which in turn LRA raids civilian areas to acquire more children; often killing parents, teachers, and others in the process. And a sad reality is their intent to create a second generation of child fighters through the raping of now teenage soldiers.

Returning to the ISIS ethnic cleansing campaign the use of genetics to force the elimination of a culture is not limited to the present. It does have a history.

The same type of perversion was a central aspect of the racial purity ideal of Nazi Germany’s leadership through its eugenics program to promote “racial hygiene”. While differing in such direct application such as rapes, the program however also encouraged the promotion of fertility with those perceived by the Nazis to be of sound purity, while at the same time criminalizing miscegenation and fostering eventually genocidal acts levied against others.

Now, it seems the world has not learned its lesson as it pledged when the rightful goal of never forgetting never allowing genocides and crimes against humanity faded along with the acute memory of the Second World War. We face this again with several terrorist, non-state actors.

But aside from the comforts we in the West provide ourselves in being remote to the sufferings of “other people” the Yazidis and too many others have not the luxury of such indifference. It is a world of isolation and exile for Yazidi women victims who fear rejection, humiliation, and guilt even if liberated from captivity. For a few the trauma leads to death at their own hands–a terrible conclusion to a rape of a people.

Of the children born from such events let us hope at least they will not be held accountable for the sins of their fathers or be outcasts among the society they may be born into.

  1. No the CIA guys in the Hilton Bar in el Tahir Square did not wear badges which said CIA. In fact they fronted themselves off as working for Bell Helicopter. The MI6 guys from Britain were fronting as tour guides. It was clear who they were after all the itShay went down.
    It is not BS. But when you know it all there is not much one can say.

  2. As for Hillary Clinton, she declared her run for the White House weeks ago, and yet she’s still running scared from any media interviews, unless you count the breathless accounts of her ordering a burrito. One reporter managed to ask her what her plan was, and her answer was that she planned to have a plan, and was having a great time.

    ???????

    If she has an excuse for illegally keeping and then deleting emails, then by all means let us hear it. Because so far, it seems to be the law doesn’t apply to her because it never has. I don’t know if the latest charity scandal will come to anything – if it was the appearance of impropriety or actual selling of State Department favors. It’ll come out, eventually.

    That speech she gave about the server only came to fruition after her own donors pressured her. Good for them! But her excuse amounted to she used the same email for State Department matters as she did to talk to her husband so it’s none of our business. Good old Bill has repeatedly said he never uses emails, but he does owe her a good cover story.

    She’s just politics as usual – above the law, untruthful, and wealthy off of politics.

  3. The Yazidis can trace their religion to pre-Islamic Mesopotamia. They express more of the fair genes they share with Europeans because of genetic isolation.

  4. fiver:

    “It’s not only quite clear in the quoted piece that the Aryan Yazidis are aggressive racial purists, it is also clear that the violation complained of is the pollution of their racial purity.”

    Really? You think that’s their greatest complaint, the resulting mixed race child of rape? You don’t think they object to prepubescent girls being gang raped by 10 men?

    Being non-Muslim in a Muslim world accounts for their insular nature, and it sounds like they share the same harsh punishments for apostasy. Is it unusual

    Does that mean it’s OK to gang rape their kids? Because they’re blond with blue eyes and don’t marry non-Yazidis?

    “Aryan” does not mean they are some surviving Nazi satellite. It means they share ancestry with most of Europe. If you have European blood, you also are “Aryan” although the word is not commonly used anymore.

  5. “You stay classy,” Jan Conklin.

    Personally, I’d have stopped with “… and the caterpillar you rode in on.” There’s a certain poetry to it.

  6. LOL, rabbit. She now has a uranium problem as well as lying about so many other things, including the Bosnia lies. I think Brian Williams was also under fire w/ her. LOL!

  7. Jan Conklin, This post is about Yazidi women so I included 2 groups not mentioned. You apparently didn’t even read the post and just started in on me. This is the NUMBER ONE issue involving women, if you have a heart or soul. Hillary is 0 for 2 in those categories. This is an all hands on deck issue for women. All other petty, elitist, issues need to be put on the back burner and this needs to be the first words out of any woman leaders mouth when discussing issues involving women. Finally, nice job w/ the ad hominem attack. “You stay classy,” Jan Conklin.

  8. How DARE anyone question Hillary Clinton’s toughness when it comes to war?! Not only has she never been against a war, but Hillary, along with her daughter, have themselves endured the horrors of war and lived to tell about it.

    Hillary Clinton is a no-nonsense leader who can always be trusted to remain cool under fire.

    So trust her….

  9. spinelli, is it just possible that hillary clinton did not have the requisite 139,000 hours her speech would take were she to address every evil taking place on the planet right now? it happens that she’s running for president of the united states, so her first objective could be to capture an audience within this pervue. if we could get the lame, lame, lame congress to address int’l war crimes, perhaps even the u.n. to chime in, we could have hope of gaining some ground. perhaps. but if you imagine there’s ever going to be real peace in the “ME” then i’ve got a bridge in brooklyn for sale … and did you forget, or purposely not mention the genocide being carried out on the yazidi (you mentioned only muslim and christians)? also bear in mind that the clinton foundation has absolutely zero to do with hillary’s presidential campaign. the funding has, at the very least, a chinese wall in place, no funds are co-mingled. and don’t you DARE to suggest you have a clue what we pampered, spoilt western women have to think about – nothing other than whether we have access to a third trimester abortion, ignore the rest of the world? screw your tiniest brain center and the caterpillar you rode in on! cuz if that’s the case, then i guess the split-brain, pampered, no-thinking western male has absolutely nothing at all to think about, eh? no abortion worries, little child support ever paid. and you can’t possibly know who’s going to be elected in 2016, unless you personally live in a koch pocket, because the billionz-brothers have vowed to purchase the presidency and they’ve got at least $80 billionz with which to shop. now it’s my turn to vomit, you’ve inspired me so. i figger you’ll continue to blow hot air, so carry on, blow-meister.

  10. Out of touch orientalism continues… This story is certainly horrible, cruel and tragic.

    Isn’t DS from the United states? Have you not checked our statistics on rapes and suicides? Just because the wealth is higher does not automatically mean there is comfort. Or what about our own role in the sex slave trade??

    What are we suppose to do about ISIS’s campaign?? Coming to this blog would lead one to simply choose war – that’s unfortunate. But that’s wrong we could do much more, it starts right here at home.

  11. I have a lot of moderate views, but not when it comes to these guys. The civilized world needs to bend all it’s will and might into scouring this scum from the earth.

    1. issac – you make a vague reference and I have no idea what it is connected to.

  12. Paul

    How can nothing be true? There is nothing there. Perhaps I credited it with the minimal ‘lame’. I retract my previous response and replace it with something more appropriate.

    Vacuous, vacuous, vacuous.

  13. It seems we’ve heard stories like these before in Iraq:

    In 2004, Antonio Taguba, a major general in the U.S. Army, wrote in the Taguba Report that a detainee had been sodomized with “a chemical light and perhaps a broomstick.” In 2009, Taguba stated that there was photographic evidence of rape having occurred at Abu Ghraib. An Abu Ghraib detainee told investigators that he heard an Iraqi teenage boy screaming, and saw an Army translator having sex with him, while a female soldier took pictures. A witness identified the alleged rapist as an American-Egyptian who worked as a translator. In 2009, he was the subject of a civil court case in the United States. Another photo shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner. Other photos show interrogators sexually assaulting prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube, and a female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts. Taguba supported United States President Barack Obama’s decision not to release the photos, stating, “These pictures show torture, abuse, rape and every indecency.” Obama, who initially agreed to release the photographs, later changed his mind, as he believed their release would put troops in danger and “inflame anti-American public opinion”.

    In other instances of sexual abuse, soldiers were found to have raped female inmates, and senior U.S. officials admitted that rape had taken place at Abu Ghraib. Some of the women who had been raped became pregnant, and in some cases, were later killed by their family members in what were thought to be instances of honor killing. In addition, children were raped in front of their mothers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Ghraib_torture_and_prisoner_abuse#Prisoner_rape

    Mr. Smith wrote about war crimes above:

    Now, it seems the world has not learned its lesson as it pledged when the rightful goal of never forgetting never allowing genocides and crimes against humanity faded along with the acute memory of the Second World War.

    I’d add that the “rightful goal” of never allowing crimes against humanity didn’t merely “fade” away with the memories of WWII. It was utterly shattered by the world’s sole super-power led by George Walker Bush.

    These war crimes (and many others) were then ratified by Barack Hussein Obama who has protected these criminals to this day . And he knows how bad it was. He’s seen the pictures and video and has been fighting their release ever since.

  14. Beldar here. I am interested in seeing how American males attack female politicians or those who aspire to a life beyond home making. The picking on Hillary is hilarious. America does not deserve a female President. You need t slog along with Iran.

  15. I read a couple articles this morning about the “fiery” feminist speech Hillary gave yesterday. She mentioned equal pay and abortion, but must have forgotten about THE KILLING, RAPING AND SUICIDE of Christian and Muslim women in the Middle East. Maybe if these poor women pony up some cash for the Clinton Foundation she might work their plight into her stump speech.

  16. Moonbat Saturday. I had no idea there was a bad way to detest women being raped. Live and puke..err “learn.”

  17. Interesting how the “racial purity” angle has been flipped 180 degrees in the above piece. The cited source, the Daily Mail, is quite clear that the racial purists are the proudly Aryan (surprise, surprise) Yazidis.

    ISIS want to impregnate Yazidi women and smash our blond bloodline’
    ***
    The Kurds and Yazidis are originally Aryans. But because the Yazidis are such a closed community they have retained a fairer complexion, blonder hair and bluer eyes. They don’t marry non-Yazidis.
    ***
    ISIS have taken around 300 women from Sinjar to give to jihadists to marry and make pregnant to have a Muslim child. If they can’t kill all Yazidis, they will try to smash the blond bloodline.
    ***
    The minority group is originally Aryan and has retained a fairer complexion, blonde hair and blue eyes by only marrying within the community.
    ***
    What makes the Yazidi still more vulnerable is the insular nature of their community. No one can convert to their religion, you have to be born into it. They also practice endogamy – that is, they only marry members of the same faith.
    ***
    Equally, anyone who voluntarily leaves the religion risks death. In 2007, it was reported that Du’a Khalil Aswad, a Yazidi woman, was stoned to death for converting to Islam and marrying a Muslim man.

    It’s not only quite clear in the quoted piece that the Aryan Yazidis are aggressive racial purists, it is also clear that the violation complained of is the pollution of their racial purity. Yet in Mr. Smith’s piece we’re told that the racial purists are ISIS and the Aryans are somehow the victims of racial purity.

    [T]hose perceived to be racially impure, in this case the Yazidi who descend from Aryan ancestry and often have traits including blue eyes, lighter skin, and in some cases blonde hair, suffer rapes with the goal of passing genetics to offspring who resemble the girls’ attackers and ISIS’ version of a model people.

    That turns the Daily Mail completely around. It also simply doesn’t make sense. Why would racial purists engage in miscegenation? As Mr. Smith later notes, they wouldn’t.

    The same type of perversion was a central aspect of the racial purity ideal of Nazi Germany’s leadership through its eugenics program to promote “racial hygiene”. While differing in such direct application such as rapes, the program however also encouraged the promotion of fertility with those perceived by the Nazis to be of sound purity, while at the same time criminalizing miscegenation and fostering eventually genocidal acts levied against others.

    Rape outside the race isn’t a “direct application” of a racial purity ideal, it’s a direct violation of that ideal. Hence the criminalization of miscegenation.
