Below are the first three paragraphs of an article in the New York Times titled,’Forced Conversions Lead to Killings in Iraq Villages’ by Ben Hubbard and Azam Ahmed

.

BAGHDAD — The extremist gunmen had surrounded the village for more than a week, refusing to let residents leave and insisting that they convert to Islam.

A handful did, and when the village’s elders found out that they had abandoned the community’s Yazidi faith, they killed them.

That news enraged the fighters from the extremist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, “so they stormed the village and started killing its people,” said Hassan Khidr, a resident reached by telephone who managed to flee after the killings began.

Alright, did you get that? Some ‘gunmen’ forced some Yazidi (who believe the world was created by God and then entrusted to seven angels led by one known as the peacock angel…etc. etcetera..) to convert to Islam then some other Yazidi found out and killed the Yazidi who were converted to Islam at gun point, and then some other Muslims (with guns you’d assume) got mad about this and so attacked the village and killed a bunch of people.
