First they came for the Jews…

First they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for the Yazidis
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Yazidi

Then they came for the Shi’a
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Shi’a

Then they came for the historical artifacts
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a historical artifact

Then they came for the Christians
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Christian

Then they came for the Zoroastrians
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Zoroastrian

Then they came for the Sufis
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Sufi

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

(Based on a poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller)
