How Israel Can Help the Yazidis of Iraq

The Islamic State's recent onslaught on the Yazidi religious group in Sinjar looked suspiciously like a genocide attempt. Israel must show the Western world how to react.

Early last Sunday morning, Islamic State forces raided the town of Sinjar and its environs, about 120 kilometers west of the city of Mosul, which has been under the organization’s control for almost two months. As they have done every time they occupy a region, the Islamic State militants gave the non-Muslim minorities two choices: convert to Islam or be killed.
