So, the US has said they have attacked the ISIS hold and allowed the refugees to leave. I know ISIS has a thing for destroying very holy places. My guess is, if we even hear about it, that they are aiming to destroy the Chermera Temple on Sinjar. It is very old and sacred to the Yazidi people apparently.



The Chermera or "40 Men" Temple on the highest peak of the Sinjar Mountains in northern Iraq. The temple is so old that no one remembers how it came to have that name, but it is believed to derive from the burial of 40 men on the mountaintop site


Sad that they are continuing to destroy populations and history.

If they get up there, they will loot it for artifacts, sell them on the black market, and destroy the temple.

It IS very sad indeed.. I love history and archeology and hate to see it lost to us.
