Here Without Me

26 minutes 2015 8.7/10 based on 3 votes

Imagine falling asleep to the tune of a terrifying lullaby comprised of the sounds of explosions just a few meters away from you. Imagine that this is also the first sound you hear as soon as you wake up.

Imagine that just before this scenario became your new daily reality, you were forced from your home by a group of terrorists who stole every material possession you owned, destroyed your house, and then kidnapped some of your family members and killed others.

Instead of your comfortable home you now live in a tent in the middle of nowhere and the uncertainty of what the future might hold eats away at you day after day. As you look around, instead of the colorful lifestyle you are accustomed to, you are now surrounded by pain and austerity.

For some women and girls the fear of what might happen to them at the hands of these men gave them the courage to commit suicide by slitting their wrists and necks. Dying had to be by far better than becoming a prisoner to deranged terrorists.

This has now become the life of the Izadi Kurds in Sinjar. These innocent people have been maliciously attacked by the Islamic terrorist group known as ISIL.

ISIL have been invading and destroying towns and villages all over Iraq and Syria while committing horrific crimes. Bombs have been strapped to men and detonated, entire families have been shot to death, temples and holy places have been blown up while people are inside; the list is long and gruesome.

Through intimate interviews, this documentary tells the story of what has been going on. With tears in their eyes, these women, children, and men remember the traumatic scenes that are alive in their memories.

Where can one turn when things like these happen? Which government will bring back their daughters and sisters that have been kidnapped? Who will raise their men from the dead? Watch this heartbreaking documentary now.

    Short but powerful Documentary. Even prisoners in America live in better conditions than these people. This is a great doc and I recommend it to anyone that has an interest in learnig about the atrocities commited by ISIL.

    This documentary proves the ISIL/ISIL/Daesh are not Muslim as their very actions go against the words of God/Allah in the Holy Quran and against the Sunnah/teaching of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Their victims are anyone including Sunni and Shia Muslim as well as Kurdish Muslims, and Zoroastrians. The form of sharia law is an innovation that is well outside ture Islam it is even more radical than Wahhabism, which is also a perversion of true Islam. I do recommend watching this and know that most the victims of these Daesh are Muslims not non-Muslim. Islam does not support any of their activities and the majority of Muslims condemn them and all terrorist. However it is the greed and waring cruelty of the west that gave birth to these fanatic devils so the west needs to take a hard look at their own part, specifically the USA, UK and France. The west created this whole mess going back to 1916 and World War One.
