Yazidi woman detained by ISIS as a sex slave, calls for all jihadists caught to be tried just as the Nazis were in Nuremberg
- Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize says that jihadists should receive Nuremberg-style trials
- Nadia Murad from Kocho, Iraq was imprisoned by IS for three months in 2014
- She called on IS prisoners to be tried in an & # 39; open court for the world to see & # 39;
Yazidi activist and Nobel Prize winner Nadia Murad has called for all imprisoned ISIS jihadists in Nuremberg-style lawsuits.
She went to Twitter to demand that detained fanatics of the Islamic State be brought to justice & # 39; for the world to see & # 39; in the aftermath of the death of leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
Murad herself is a survivor of ISIS after being detained for three months by the terrorist organization in Mosul.
Originally from the Yazidi village of Kocho in Iraq, she now lives in Germany.
In 2018, alongside Denis Mukwege, she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her & # 39; efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict & # 39 ;.

Like thousands of other Yazidi women, Murad was brutally raped and in between by ISIS terrorist soldiers before she managed to escape to Germany, where she now lives. She became the first woman from Iraq to win the Nobel Peace Prize for her activism in speaking out against abuse and sexual violence
Murad greeted the news of al-Baghdadi's death on her Twitter account and said: & # 39; The death of #alBaghdadi welcomes news to the world, especially to the communities targeted by #ISIS.
& # 39; Baghdadi died during his life – a coward who used children as a shield. Let today be the start of the global struggle to bring ISIS to justice. & # 39;
She then called to bring imprisoned jihadists to justice in an open court for the world to see & # 39 ;.

She said: & # 39; Justice is the only acceptable course of action. We need to unite # ISIS terrorists and hold them accountable in the same way that the world's Nazis are tried in an open court of the Nuremberg trials. & # 39;
She also drew attention to minority communities in Iraq, such as the Yazidis & Christians who & # 39; suffered under the hands of Al-Baghdadi and his militants & # 39; and & # 39; need help & # 39 ;.
Plight of the Yazidi under ISIS
The Yazidis are a religious cult whose beliefs combine elements from various ancient Middle Eastern religions.
The group's beliefs were seen as heretics by the twisted butchers of the Islamic State.
ISIS overcame the heart of the Yazidi Sinjar faith in northern Iraq in 2014.
Men and older women were slaughtered, while younger women and girls were forced into sex slavery or & # 39; married & # 39; with ISIS hunters.
Thousands of Yazidi women were raped and tortured by their abductors.
The attacks by ISIS on the Yazidis were condemned by the United Nations as a genocide.
When ISIS lost control of Iraq, the jihadists decapitated dozens of Yazidi women and threw their heads in rubbish bins, according to British SAS troops entering the recaptured area.
& # 39; Yazidi & # 39; s are still displaced and thousands (especially women and children) remain missing & # 39 ;, she said.
In August 2014, the Islamic State killed or enslaved thousands of Yazidis when IS swept through their homeland in northern Iraq.
Thousands of Yazidi men were slaughtered and more than 3,000 women and girls as young as nine were enslaved.
Murad closed her series of tweets with the words: & I am grateful to all US members of the government and the coalition – who participated in and supported the operation. & # 39;
Murad was captured by IS on 15 August 2014 and held as a slave in the city of Mosul, where she was beaten, burned with cigarettes and raped.
She successfully escaped after her prisoner left the house unlocked and smuggled her out of the area controlled by the Islamic State to reach a refugee camp in Duhok.
She became a member of an activist group in Germany who brought her to the UN, where she became a human rights ambassador and then wrote a book.
Murad became the first woman from Iraq to win the Nobel Peace Prize for her activism in speaking out against abuse and sexual violence.
The UN acknowledges the genocide that happened to the Yazidis, but the British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Clooney is helping with the steps needed to secure a trial.

The British-Lebanese Amal Clooney said in her 60 minutes about ISIS genocide: & # 39; This was the same dilemma the world had after the atrocities of Nazi Germany & # 39;
Clooney compared the crimes against Yazidis with those of & # 39; after the atrocities of Nazi Germany & # 39; when she sat down with Scott Pelley earlier this month for a 60-minute report with Murad.
& # 39; This was the same dilemma the world had after the atrocities of Nazi Germany & # 39 ;, Clooney said during the CBS interview.
& # 39; Because there are people today who deny there were gas chambers, and what should you point out? You can go back and say that 4,000 documents have been submitted in the Nuremberg and Yazadi trials that deserve nothing less than that. & # 39;
What were the Nuremberg processes?
The Nuremberg trials were a series of military tribunals held by the Allied Forces under international law and the laws of war after the Second World War.
They were remarkable for the persecution of leading figures from the political, military, judicial and economic leadership of Nazi Germany. Many of these figures were responsible for war crimes, including the Holocaust and systematic ethnic cleansing of non-Aryan races.
The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg, Germany and are described as the & # 39; largest lawsuit in history & # 39 ;.
The Tribunal was held between November 20, 1945 and October 1, 1946 and was given the task of trying 24 of the most important figures in the Third Reich.
Hermann Goering: Reich Marshal, commander of the Luftwaffe 1935–45, head of the 4-year plan 1936–45 and originally head of the Gestapo until 1934.
Originally the second highest member of the Nazi party and Hitler's designated successor, he fell out of favor with the Nazi leader in April 1945. He was the highest ranked Nazi officer who was tried in Nuremberg.
Goering was sentenced to hanging, but committed suicide by taking cyanide pending execution.
Rudolf Hess: Hitler & # 39; s deputy Fuhrer until he flew to Scotland in 1941 trying to make peace with the United Kingdom. Was sentenced to life imprisonment for war crimes. Hess would have hung herself at the age of 93.
Dr. Robert Ley: Head of DAF – the German labor front. Ley committed suicide on October 25, 1945, before the trial began. He was charged but not acquitted or found guilty because the trial was canceled.
Albert Speer: Was sentenced to 20 years in prison for crimes against peace and humanity. Hitler & # 39; s close friend and favorite architect, he was the Armament Minister from 1942 until the end of the war. In this capacity, he was responsible for the use of slave workers from the occupied territories in the production of armament.
