The recognition that ISIS is committing genocide on Christians is pretty well recognized throughout the world. Why it takes John Kerry and the Obama administration so long to put it into words is a study in ineptness. I a studied insult to Congress, citizens, and Christians, They were actually a day late in responding to Congress’ demand that they make a decision and make a statement. It is no wonder that many citizens feel that Christianity is being marginalized and the Islam agenda is being protected by our own government. The idea that the decision hinged on legal definitions and not interfering with courts is laughable at best. Read the article and leave comments.
As Reported By and First Appeared on Associated Press:
Kerry determines ISIS committing genocide in Iraq, Syria
Secretary of State John Kerry has determined that the Islamic State group is committing genocide against Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria, according to U.S. officials, as he acted to meet a congressional deadline.
But Kerry’s finding, set to be announced Thursday, will not obligate the United States to take additional action against ISIS militants and does not prejudge any prosecution against its members, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly preview Kerry’s decision.
A day after the State Department said Kerry would miss the March 17 deadline, the officials said Kerry had completed his review and determined that Christians, Yazidis and Shiite groups are victims of genocide. The House this week passed a nonbinding resolution by a 393-0 vote condemning IS atrocities as genocide.
Lawmakers and others who have advocated for the finding had sharply criticized the department’s disclosure Wednesday that deadline would be missed. The officials said Kerry concluded his review just hours after that announcement and that the criticism had not affected his decision.
