    They will not. Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Bahais, Yezidis and others who face persecution by Muslims in Middle East dont have any value for Leftist/Liberals.
    We have had more than 10 threads that were related to Israel-Palestine conflict and one of them reached more than 1000 posts.
    But any thread that relates to Islamic Persecution of Non-Muslims hardly reaches 20 posts. And most who posts in threads relating Islamic Persecution of Non Muslims are clearly not Liberals/Leftists

    I hate to say it but the only 'savior' of Iraqi minorities might be...Iran.

    No because it's not trendy to talk about how some Muslims oppress/kill other people because ethnicity or religious differences.

    “They do not even have this,” he said, holding a glass of water; IS cut off water supply to Christian and Kurdish communities they do not control. “There is no power. There are no hospitals. There are no doctors. There is no peace, no security.”
    This. Feels some outrage over this Liberals.
    Liberal Media hardly reports this but is full of Gaza Problems.

    They say ISIS is not truly Muslim. This makes me :facepalm: and :biglaugh: at the same time.

    It's a bad case of the 'No true Scotsman' fallacy.

    They were Iraqs's last surviving and oldest Gnostic community and they were beautiful.

    Yea, they also have roots in Zoroastrianism. The word Yezidi comes from the word Yazata, who are Zoroastrian Amesha Spentas or angels.

    It is a religion of poetry that worshiped beauty. They are dear to my heart and I love the peacock angel

    That is like getting mad at crumbs on the carpet and then emptying the entire fridge and pantry onto it.

    Yea, our religious texts are in poetry as well.

    I feel for them because their faith is very similar to mine and has roots in it.

    Are they Gnostics? I thought they were related to Zoroastrians.

    Their faith is my faith and their God is my God. A part of what I am will probably be gone when they are completely murdered and they will probably will be and it hurts. But what should I do? Call for vengeance? Ask for an eye for an eye? No. I want you people to see that your hate destroys beautiful things. I want people to see the truth.
