: Who is that man?? I mean, is he some sort of government official... or just a nonconformist?
That's a prince of the Yezidies.
He and many Yezidies here acknowledge their ancient ancestry with the ancient Assyrians but are scared to voice their opinion in public due to a fear of persecution by the Kurds who claim the Yezidies as their own.
It's amazing how our people in our homelnd are more open-minded than our people in the west. On the first day I arrived I met with 2 local Yezidies who had come to the ADM HQ wishing the leaders a happy easter.
