Even inside the oasis of peace of the Kurdistan region ( but only 50 kms away from war torn Mosul ) , Lalish , the holiest shrine of the yezidis , is facing death . Isolated , missunderstood and endogamic , Yezidism , the ancestral faith of the kurds is shrinqing every day and melting into the surrounding sea of Islam . Iraq .
