“In the name of humanity.”
A tearful Iraqi politician pleaded with the Iraqi Parliament, and the world, for help Tuesday, saying they’re “being butchered under the banner of ‘There is no God but Allah.’”
According to the New York Daily News, Vian Dakheel, a Yazidi member of Parliament, is seen on video begging for the lives of her people — the Yazidi are members of the Kurdish Alliance.
“Mr. Speaker, we are being butchered under the banner of ‘There is no God but Allah,’” she cried. “Until now 500 men and boys have been butchered… Please, Mr. Speaker allow me to finish. My family is being butchered… I am speaking here in the name of humanity. Please Save Us! Please Save Us!”
