A Letter to Iyzidyi who had persecuted two times
In Syrian the People of Kurdish make up about 4 million living in several different Areas : " Efrin or çiyayè Kurmènc, Kobaniyè and Cezirè ", most of them are Sunni Muslims with a little of Iyzidyian living in Efrin and the Province of Cezirè, for the politic situation of Kurdish now they living under the law of Emergency, Martial, Arabs Belt and Extraordinary of Statistics since 1962.
In the first glance that comes to mind for the Kurdish that no different between Muslimis Kurds and Iyzidyian Kurds Religiously, and that is right in the Kurdish of Efrin , but like this Relationship is different in Cezirè .
In Efrin Iyzidyian living in several Villages without any Religious conflict, cause the Spirit of Nationalism is dominant, and stronger than Religious, and these Villages are : Qètimè - Qestel Cundo - Ðezwè - Qibarè -Sinko -Feqiro -Basùtè -Turundè - Kimarè -Ceqelè Cùmè - Keferzitè - Burcè, and the total numbers of Kurds, in those Cities totale of Peopulation was about 10 000,they had deprived from thier Religious and Cultural Rights, and for that some of them turnd to Islame since 100 years ago, but most of them migrated to Europe especially German last twenty years .
On Cezirè there are no Official Statistics, but their Census are mor than Efrin, about 11 000, distributed in several parts, most of them living in the Province of : Hesekeh - Qamishlo - Tel Ebyatè and Derbassiyèh, they are more religious, underdeveloped and isolated socially, in other hand and worth mentioning they believe that their nationality is Iyzidyian, while the Kurds Muslims nationality in thier concept of religious are Islam , and there is a paradox for no Iyzidyian in Kobaniyè Province, cause this Region, Socially and Culturaly, had linked with Orfa Province, and all of them Sunni Muslims.
In the Province of Cezirè the Iyzidyian Villages located along the Arab Villages, and the relationship between them over the past characterized by hatred of tribal, and based on the Dread and Suspicion, in other hand they had been suffering and threatening by the Tribes of Arab for long time, while the Goverenment created both Racism and Discrimination .
Iyzidyian Socially had divided into three Classes: "Sheikh -Peir and Disciple", the Relationsbip characterized by the respect and sanctification but extent to the intolerance class, therefor the Marriage had prohibited between these Classes, while like this tradition had disappeared in Efrin since a long time ago, and in contrast to the Cezirè there is a good neighboring and social exchange between them .
As a result for the contact between Iyzidyian and Muslim kurdish culturaly over the past decades,an Interaction occurred in the Social of Horeritage, especially the suffering people in Efrin politicaly, in other hand the Iyzidyian of Cezirè have not belive for the Arabs neighboring, and liking to buy Arabs land at a high price to get rid them .
Religiously they considering themselves the Remnants of Zoroastrianism, its main Ideologe and Philosophy focused that the Good and Evil are both essential Powers in our life, while some of Scholars believe that the Iyzidyian are an Evolutionary result of historycaly from the Assyrian and Babylonian Religious, for that they revere Sun and Mon to the present time.
The Political Situation emphasizing that the Iyzidyian of Cezirè had harssed from Arabian Tribes by the instigation of Power, and these Tribes have a Freedom to obtaining a Residential permit for build Mosques, Fuel Stations, Laboratories and Schools, in order to reduce thier Farmlands, and in the same time they have trying to pay a Huge Sums of mony for purchase the Lands that surrounding them .
In short words the Iyzidyian People over the decads had known for their Navneord, Honesty and Dedication in his work, and that was enough to require for the preferred Employer of Christian or Muslim that heavily dependable ,also they are mor careful to do not lying,and going away from Hypocrisy .
