“According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvelous day today”! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well.

The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!” The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice.

They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away.

The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.

The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame. Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because the world in any case harbors no wish at all to meet the naked Truth”.

Now, the pictures of the whole withdrawals become very clear why Yazidis (Ezidies) people can’t believe all the parties and governments who ruled Shingal from 2003 to 2017. The Yazidi (Ezidy) storyline is very similar to the narrative of “Naked Truth” which is very appropriate ones. Well, the Yazidi (Ezidy) situation very much looks like the truth, we always try to believe the ones who live with us for decades then they betray us at the end of path.

This becomes very popular, when it becomes to the Yazidi live options for believing, we trust them. But “we all know what happened on 2014, it left thousands sad stories behind”, Yazidis (Ezidies) can’t take the path with same faces who left thousands of lives behind on 3 Aug 2014 in dirty hands, then after genocide is committed on the ground of Shingal, Bashika & Bazani and other Yazidi (Ezidy) areas, and again these faces come and left Yazidis like lie takes clothes of truth. Meanwhile, it is obvious Yazidis (Ezidies) can’t take bath between desert habitants without an international protection or self-defense by young Yazidis within support of Iraq and KRG, stealing our clothes for second time, third time maybe for the entire life could happen if there is no real justice on the ground and protection!

The water might be enough marvelous and pretty nice, but 3 August 2014 “genocide” is good lesson learned to keep avoid having the bath with current and previous military faces of ruling Shingal. In order to preserve our clothes safe and clean during the bath, once we have learned what happen to us on August 2014. Committing genocide will be hard to be taken by both faces but if we don’t learn, the stealing of Yazidi (Ezidy) clothes will be their continuation as they did hundreds years ago. Repeating the same mistakes will put Yazidi (Ezidy) faith under very dangerous threats. In this respect, Yazidi (Ezidy) people should work for Yazidis; Yazidi politicians should be the true voice of Yazidi people not voice of personal or political interests and party’s interests. Yazidi current situation doesn’t need showing off, it doesn’t need to be hero in front of media, and it does need unity and true hardworking for the entire community.
