So our President thinks the genocide of Christians doesn’t meet the high bar of the genocide treaty!?
President Reagan signed the treaty in 1988 making the U.S. the 98th nation to sign this.
The law defines genocide as acting with a ”specific intent to destroy, in whole or in substantial part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group.”
As such:(a) Killing members of the group;(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
— Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article 2
Article 3 defines the crimes that can be punished under the convention:
(a) Genocide;(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;(d) Attempt to commit genocide;(e) Complicity in genocide
A recent report by Raymond Ibrahim points out that a Christian is slaughtered every 5 minutes and the leader of the free world (Obama) and the Pope refuses to call it genocide. He says human rights activists see it, and religious leaders are calling for it yet it falls on deaf ears. He cites Obama’s refusal s because it doesn’t meet the standards of the treaty. What planet is he living on?
Former Congressman Frank Wolfe visited the Yazidis and filed a letter with attorney general Lynch in November encouraging her to pronounce genocide on them and Christians and other minorities. But spokesmen for the white house continuously say that the slaughter of Christians are human rights violations and do not meet standards.
The declaring of genocide would open all sorts of doors. It would enable prosecution of supporters and members of the Islamic State. Most especially leaders. At least one presidential candidate is asking for congress to declare war on the Islamic state. But this would tarnish the peaceful image of a president elected on the heels of a Nobel Peace prize. So, like Nero, our leader fiddles while Rome burns and like Nero he too blames Christians for the fires.
So I ask again why? Why won’t our leaders use tools and laws already in place???
