You may not have even heard of the Yazidis, a religious minority primarily Kurdish in ethnicity. Since they are not fundamentalist Islamists, ISIS has targeted them for extermination. Currently tens of thousands of Yazidis are under siege in the mountains of Iraq where they are suffering from a lack of food and water.

Meanwhile much of the world is diminishing the real meaning of “genocide” by using the word to describe Israel’s efforts to root out Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

Good question.
