And beaten Finally she managed a narrow escape through the streets of Mosul finding shelter in the home of a Sunni Muslim family whose eldest son risked his life to smuggle her to safetyToday Nadia's story as a witness to the Islamic State's brutality a survivor of rape a refugee a Yazidi has forced the world to pay attention to an ongoing genocide It is a call to action a testament to the human will to survive and a love letter to a lost country a fragile community and a family torn apart by wa Well I won t put this in the military non fiction category because Daesh are a murdering bag of bastards only good for killing unarmed opposition and the Yazidi didn t put up a fight I d call this situation a comedy of errors but there is really nothing funny about this tragic situation It s a disaster that everyone contributed to all the way down the line Ms Murad starts her book with a little family background and fills us in a bit on Yazidism a religion of which I was previously ignorant and now I find I am merely mystified they pray to a peacock angel Yazidism has no book and is passed on by word of mouth but it has one great advantage over other religions they don t want you You cannot convert to Yazidism apparently so they don t want you No evangelism They are perfectly happy to live in harmony with their neighbours and produce children to help in the field but now we have too many mouths to feed so we need to grow so we need children to work the fieldyou get the picture Anyway the head wizards over at the ISIS think tank decide that since the Yazidi have no holy book they are fair game for killing raping basically anything you want to do to them so they surround the village with what amounts to lightly motorized infantry This is where it could have got interesting because the Yazidi are armed It seems every Yazidi household has at least one firearm and they love to shoot them just like every other place in the Middle East I ve heard them they shoot at funerals they shoot at weddings they shoot when their soccer team wins a game Totally ignorant of the laws of gravity they shoot all the time So what do the fierce Yazidi do with this armament Some of it they turn over to ISIS and the rest they bury Then in a scene eerily reminiscent of that other holocaust they take their belongings to a collection point for selection Women of ravishing age are put on transport Any boy with armpit hair is sent off with the men to be machinegunnedThis is where Nadia s story begins really Obviously she survives because she is pictured on the cover but I won t tell you than that You will have to read it yourself and really you should read it I wish the liberal fancy boy Prime Minister of my country would read it because maybe then he wouldn t be letting ISIS fighters back into Canada instead of putting a bounty on them like he should This book made me mad At the United Nations for imposing sanctions that hurt only the people at the bottom of societal strata At the USA for destabilising the region and then taking off at the high port leaving weapons to the Irais which were then dropped and picked up by Daesh Murad says ISIS had American weapons I was angry at the Yazidi polygamous ways that enabled her father to take another wife to produce kids and then house his first wife in a shed And let s not forget a system that makes it practically impossible for a poor woman to get birth control Or the other Muslim people who while they maybe didn t exactly condone Daesh didn t speak out against them And I was especially angry at the Yazidi men who having weapons did not use them on those murdering black clad monsters who had them surrounded They might not be less dead but they would have died fighting They made it easyPeople in the Middle East in general have a tendency to be theatrically dramatic while we in the west tend to prefer a type of stoic approach to hardship This is the only problem I had with the book Murad seems to be either screaming fainting or puking on every other page Even considering that some very painful and wicked things were happening to her it seemed a bit over the top It certainly didn t ruin the book which I endorse whole heartedly Red Tail (Travis Trilogy you You cannot convert to Yazidism apparently so they don t want Promises in Tumble Creek you No evangelism They are perfectly happy to live in
