Amazon Review: Father Patrick Desbois (Author), Costel Nastasie (Author), Lara Logan (Foreword)
A riveting, behind-the-scenes look of the Yazidi genocide. The impending terrorist threat to Kurdistan and what it holds for the West, based on the investigation by Father Patrick Desbois, Costel Nastasie, and their team at Yahad–In Unum.
With testimony drawn from more than 200 interviews with Yazidi survivors—girls, women, boys, and men—recorded during 11 investigative trips to refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Patrick Desbois (born 1955, in Chalon-sur-Saône) is a French Roman Catholic priest, head of the Commission for Relations with Judaism of the French Bishops’ Conference and consultant to the Vatican. He is the founder of the Yahad-In Unum, an organization dedicated to locating the sites of mass graves of Jewish victims of the Nazi mobile-killing units in the former Soviet Union. He received the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest honor, for his work documenting the Holocaust.
Action for Yazidis is led by Patrick Desbois and collects the words of survivors to document and offer evidence of every step of the genocide of the Yazidis. Father Desbois was interviewed in Sinjar in 2016 by Lara Logan on an episode of 60 Minutes. Until July 2018, nearly 300 semi-directive interviews of Yazidi victims of all ages were conducted by Desbois and his team. – Wikipedia

The massacre of the Yazidi people by ISIS was nothing less than genocide. In refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan, the authors brought a skilled team to interview more than a hundred ISIS survivors and document what they experienced and saw.
These former slaves observed their torturers and know from the inside the secret facilities that ISIS has kept hidden from the world.
What their testimony reveals is an organization whose ambition is power, regardless of their claim to be “soldiers of God.” Their fighters are paid with sex, money, and the power of life and death over captives. Their promised paradise is here and now, not after death.
Men who didn’t swear allegiance were executed. Women became slaves for sex or reproduction, and their offspring may still serve the cause. In mobile training camps, the captured children were drugged, indoctrinated, and taught to shoot Kalashnikovs, plant explosives, and handle suicide vests. They are the intended products of the terrorist factory.
The impending terrorist threat to Kurdistan and what it holds for the West. Beware America!
In this taut, disturbing account, the authors document a utilitarian genocide that still holds an implicit threat to other countries, including those in the West.
