Seth J. Frantzman (talk) 13:16, 24 March 2008 (UTC) There has been a suggestion to merge this with Iraqi minorities. I fully agree, because this article is part of the Iraqi project, but then the name of this article should be changed to Iraqi Minorities and the information from that article included here. The heading of this article: 'minority politics in Iraq' is a smaller category than the overall discussion of Iraqi Minorities. Does that make sense?

Agreed. Chaldean (talk) 15:30, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Yezidi[edit]

I cancelled revision 368739320 by DolmaiPhone (talk) because a whole part of the Yezidi section had been removed while being moved up in the article. This was a controversial part of the section, awaiting to be sourced, but the whole article needs to be properly sourced, and this particular part, th Kurdishness of Yezidis, has been a matter of dispute since decades now. --Pylambert (talk) 08:39, 18 June 2010 (UTC)


Yezidi/Yazidi/Minorities in Iraq/Minority politics in Iraq[edit]

I am very sorry if I've done this wrong, but, looking at the Talk guidelines, I can't find any other way than this to put new info in a "new" box at the bottom of the page. I don't post that frequently, so I just do the best I can when I learn formats have changed.

My specific issues are 2-fold: 1) The whole issue of the Yazidis' treatment by the Iraqi government is really heating up right now (I'm writing in late August, 2014). While this article and the one just called "Yazidis"offers excellent background info, in late 2014 we're witnessing a situation that is growing more grave by the minute. I can't actually find an article that discusses the escalation as a separate issue or an article just discussing current events. I realize Wikipedia is not CNN and am not suggesting updates every 10 seconds, but if perhaps "2014:Treatment of Yazidis by ISIS/ISIL" could be its own large section or its own article that perhaps dealt with the atrocities month by month or even quarter by quarter, would something like this be workable? The dates I see on the talk page are 2008 and 2011, an---seriously?

2) In any section related to minorities and their treatment in Iraq, I notice no mention made of the Baha'i Faith. Granted, the situation is much more grave in Iran, but the Baha'is do represent a significant portion of the non-Sunni Muslim population of Iraq. This news site gives and excellent and I feel unbiased look at this situation and may explain why the number of Baha'is in Iraq don't bear mentioning in the opinion of your editors on this subject (basically, it's unsafe for them to try to document their numbers empirically): <ref>http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/08/iraq-bahais-persecution-religious-minority.html#<ref>

That's all, and I hope I have stated my case without bolluxing up Wiki's formatting too much!PumbaPumbata (talk) 15:09, 7 July 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Minissa (talkcontribs) 22:20, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers.PumbaPumbata (talk) 15:09, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Lies. Again and again.[edit]

"Kurds are an Indo-European people of the Iranian branch. Ethnically and linguistically they are most closely related to Iranians and have existed in Iraq since before the Arab-Islamic conquest. They are possibly descended from the ancient Corduene."

It's not true. The first Kurds in Iraq have appeared only in the mid-19th century. They tried to forcibly assimilate the Yezidis and Assyrians in their group. And yes - Ezids and Assyrians are't kurds.

I can't understand how the article author is not a shame.--PumbaPumbata (talk) 15:09, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I remember when they suddenly popped up on 15 of September 1856. According to regional sources, they were brought there by aliens.
No, serious now: Stop your vandalism, or you'll get reported! Firstly, it doesn't play a role since when the Kurds live there for being mentioned as a minority in Iraq (and they do it much longer than you claim). Secondly, The section you are criticising doesn't have anything to do with Yazidis and Assyrians. Thirdly, the Assyrians are definitely not Kurds, whereas the Yazidis can't be clearly classified, since they speak a Kurdish dialect (Kurmanci) but have a different history to a certain degree due to their religion.--Ermanarich (talk) 15:27, 7 July 2016 (UTC)


Are you kidding me? It's kurds take Yazidi's language, not vise versa. Your "genius" humor inappropriate. Secondly, this info play a big role, because kurds trying to steal land from Ezids and from Iraq citing "historical justice". In this case the Kurds all guests in Iraq.You use wikipedia as a mouthpiece of propaganda. Or you just don't know what are you talking about.--PumbaPumbata (talk) 18:00, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
