Fakir Haider Khalaf Haider - village of Karsi, Sinjar, Iraqi Kurdistan (2009)
Deep in the Sinjar Mountains, a historical stronghold of the Yezidis, the fakir implored me to talk to the President of the United States upon my return home, to explain that the Sinjari Yezidis have been forgotten and need the help of the United States. Fear was mounting as the US military withdrawal date approached.
