(AINA) -- A tearful, emotional and angry Yazidi member of the Iraqi Parliament, Vian Dakheel, admonished the Parliamentary body and asked for immediate assistance in repelling ISIS, who has captured the primarily Yazidi towns of Sinjar and Zumar, killing nearly 2,000 and forcing 200,000 to flea into the nearby mountains without food and water. More than 50 children have died from dehydration in two days and hundreds more of children and elderly are at risk.
The world leader of the Yazidis, Prince Tahseen Said, has issued a distress call (AINA 2014-08-04).
The Yazidi MP begins by saying "Mr. Speaker, we are being butchered under the banner of 'There is no God but Allah!'" The Speaker interrupts and says "Honorable representative, there is some uproar in the Iraqi Parliament for saying that Yazidis are being butchered under the banner of There is no God but Allah!'" Undaunted, the Yazidi MP continues. Near the end of her speech she sobs and collapses.
