Germany Rejects Yazidi Asylum Seekers Fleeing Persecution By Islamic Extremists

Germany, with its ruling elite of hand wringing, breast beating, teeth — gnashing, politically correct virtue signallers is showing its true colours as, in common with neighbour Sweden, a hypocritical regime that will give Muslims a free pass to rape and kill (because they’ve been so persectuted you know,) but will not act to protect minorities persecuted by extremist governments in counties run by Islamic fundamentalists. The EU’s largest nation and most powerful economy, which righteously lecturing other EU member states on the need to take refugees and asylum seekers, is taking in fewer and fewer Yazidi refugees, according to a German newspaper report.

The religious minority was terrorized by the “Islamic State” during the militant group’s campaign in Iraq and Syria and hundreds, possibly thousands of Yazidi women were raped and used as sex slaves by IsIS terrorists. Because Yazidi beliefs, women who have been ‘defiled’ by non — Yazidi men are no longer marriagable, or if married will be rejected by their husbands, thus the mass rapes were in fact a genocide weapon as such unfortunate women, if they do have children at all after their ordeal will find those children can never be accepted into the Yazidi community. And yes I find such beliefs strange too, but members of the sect have lived that way for hundreds of years and their way of life is no less worthy of respect than anybody else’s.

Germany approved about 60 percent of asylum applications from the Yazidi minority of Syrian and Iraq in 2018, the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung newspaper reported on Saturday (9 February,). At roughly 5,300 refugees the figure represents a significant drop from the previous year, when 85 percent of Yazidi asylum-seekers, most of them from Iraq, made successful claims. The figures were provided by the Foreign Ministry in response to an official request from the Left party.

The Yazidis are a Kurdish-speaking minority in northern Syria and northern Iraq, distinguished from the mainstream Muslim population by their unique monotheistic religion. In 2014, the ancestral territory occupied by the Yazidi,the Sinjar region of northern Iraq and Syria, which has been respected by bother the “monstrous tyrants” of the region, Saddam Husein and Bashar al Assad whom western leaders have been so eager to demonize, was seized by “Islamic State” (IS) militants. Hundreds of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee the indiscriminate slaughter. United Nations aid agencies estimated that around 5,000 Yazidi men were murdered though many are still unaccounted for, while 7,000 women were abducted and enslaved. Many Yazidi refugees have ended up in Armenia, Georgia and Russia. About 150,000 live in Germany — the largest community of Yazidis in exile. Yazidi woman and former IS prisoner Nadia Murad received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 for her campaign to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.

A short post to get me back in the groove after a few days of commenting only. Sometimes real life gets in the way of our efforts to fill the void left when mainstream media converted from reporting events and background stories to merely publishing government / corporate propaganda.
