Refugee crisis: Desperate Iraqi Yazidis join exodus to Europe

Khatab’s eyes darted around the torch-lit room as he speaks. His family, part of Iraq’s Yazidi minority, sits around him inside the shell of a half-built home as darkness falls.

“Look, we have nothing,” says the nervous-looking 15-year-old, pointing to the plastic-covered holes in the walls where windows should be. Two weeks ago the teenager attempted to reach Europe, walking for 35 hours towards the Turkish-Bulgarian border before he was arrested. “He is still shaking now”, his father says.

    I am sorry for Yazidis, they do have difficult situation in Iraq but they are still illegal migrants. There are 80,000 Yazidis, than there are millions of poor Shiites and poor Pakistanis and poor Eritreans. Than there poor Africans and poor Mexicans and …. so of course, according to useful idiots Europe and Canada and USA should welcome all the poor people because they are poor and the West should accept all the poor people so it also can became poor, like everybody else in Africa.

      We need to summon Mister Kurtz.

      To tell you the absolute truth —I really don’t give a fuck about any of them.

      And anyone that wants to help them can kiss my White ass.

  • Anybody notice the difference in demographic and comportment compared with the so-called “refugees” storming Europe?

      I certainly don’t see the litter trail those other ones leave in their wake. I like the kind of people that don’t litter, or try to impose their culture and lifestyle on me.

      • I don’t see a 72% demographic of healthy robust young men in that photo. I also don’t see young men prancing around with impish smiles on their faces and doing “street theatre” for the press, rioting, or acting in any threatening way.

          Man there’s a lot we don’t see there, and I like that.

  • That’s funny. No one cared about the Yazidis before.

    • Shebel

      It is not funny. What is a Yazidis?

      • I will rephrase: no one cared about Yazidis. That is curious.

  • Shebel

    Hey Justin and Mulcair—- Do both you 2 assholes hate Canada enough to Destroy the Country that pampered you 2 pussies?

  • Shebel

    Would either of you admit to helping the Yazidis ?
    Not likely.
    Better question—- would you admit to NOT helping the Yazidis ?

    • mobuyus

      I’ll admit to helping all I can, short of actual aid.

      • Shebel

        Me too.

      The better solution would be to eradicate the pestilence which endangers them. Preferably with ‘extreme prejudice’.

    What is the Big problem here ? These fucking monkees want to kill each other??
    This is definitely Not a problem.
    It is probably a good thing. I REALLY don’t care if Muslims kill each other.
    It is when they want to KILL us that they become a problem.
