The members of the Union of Yezidis Worldwide rallied in front of the
government of Armenia on August 21 and urged Armenia to help prevent
atrocities against Yezidis in Iraq. On the same day the president of
the union of Yezidis Aziz Tamoyan spoke about the genocide of his
compatriots in Iraq in a news conference at the Pastark Club. The
Yezidis have also sent a letter to the U.S. President George Bush and
asked him to grant sovereignty to Yezidis in Iraq under the aegis of
the United States. They have also made calls for help to the Russian
president Vladimir Putin, the prime minister of the U.K, Brown, the
Armenian president Robert Kocharyan and "all the humanists of the
world." Aziz Tamoyan says in Iraq the Kurds want to displace Yezidis
from North Iraq and live in their land. According to Aziz Tamoyan,
it is the joint project of the governments of Kurdistan and Iraq.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
