"The impartial and enlightened reader will not find in them any evidence of the conviction of their nearest neighbors - Muslims and Christians - that Yazidis (devil) worshipped God. If this belief is still held, it is only because, firstly, Yazidis do not only not try to refute it, but, on the contrary, by their secrecy, mystery and fear of being ridiculed and undeservedly insulted in their "holy of holies", they strengthen it even more, Secondly, because the neighbors of Yazidis, standing at a low level of mental development, are not able to grasp the essence of the religious teachings of the Yazidi faith, and making an assessment by external, not understandable to them, rituals and personal assumptions, themselves fall into a grave error".
