Untitled[edit]

Q: Why was my last edit identified as vandalism when the content is purely opinion and not backed up?

A: Because of just that. It was your opinion. I believe that Wikipedia is based on facts that are proven and backed up.


I think this page should be merged into this page as a new section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq Alexjustdoit (talk) 03:52, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Some minor changes[edit]

I made some changes in the text. First of all the Yezidis are all ethnic Kurds not predominantly, this is actually a well known hallmark of the yezidis. Now this is not a nationalistic opinion it is a fact and it is a result of the endogamy within the Yezidi religion. Kakeyi is not a separate religion but actually a local name for the Yarsan derived from the Kakeyi tribe in the germiyan area who are yarsan. Shabak is also regarded as Alevi, the shabaks are only the name of a Dimili speaking Alevi tribe near Mosul. They are neighbors with the Gurani speaking Yarsan Bajellani tribe. For the refference of the shabaks being alevi see Martin van Bruinessen's article "The Shabak, a Kizilbash community in Iraqi Kurdistan" in Les Annales de l'Autre Islam, No.5 (1998), 185-196. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.231.83.143 (talk) 23:30, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
