Quick notes: Arab "friends", Yazidi braveheart...

  • Arabs won't help them, so Palestinians shelter among fleeing Kurds in Erbil camp


  • We refused to convert to Islam: “It is our own neighbors who did this to us. Why? We never attacked them, never insulted them, never done nothing wrong to them. They betrayed us.”


  • A Yazidi Woman's Ordeal: For two long days, they received no water. It was extremely hot and their captors had given them a single glass of tea. They passed around the glass -- two tiny sips for each woman. If you convert to Islam, the men said, you'll be given as much fresh water as you want. "We remained steadfast," says Nadia.


  • Iraqi Yazidi girl tells of captivity: The Saudi militant took her to a house where he lived with other fighters. "He told me, 'You'll become Muslim, then I will marry you'. But I refused to become a Muslim and that's why I fled."


  • Raghupati Raaghav at White House: Dr Paul Erhard on Double Bass and Robbie Erhard on Cello

“Raghupati Raaghav at White House: Dr Paul Erhard on Double Bass and Robbie Erhard on Cello”
I was curious to know whether the hymn was the original or Gandhi's polluted version. Unfortunately, the video cannot be played, because it is "private".

Keshav, for whatever reason, the poster made the video private.

Nothing comes close to this:
