Lincoln-area Yazidi community commemorates 8th anniversary of Sinjar genocide

Lincoln Journal Star Aug 4, 2022 –

Lincoln-area Yazidis gathered Aug. 3 in Malcolm to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Yazidi Genocide perpetrated in Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. 

My cmnt: I have Yazidi neighbors who fled this violence unleashed by Obama/Hillary and their reckless withdrawal of troops from Iraq. With the election of President Donald Trump the U.S. crushed the Islamic State that feckless B.O. simply could not do due to his affinity for Islam and radical Muslims.
