SOL W. SANDERS: CALLING IT A CHRISTIAN GENOCIDE…….

The sound of bone crunching silence…….

The deafening silence from the Obama administration over the genocide of Christians by devout Muslims throughout the Middle East has been deafening. It’s just as loud as the near silence by the World Council of Churches who have NOT mounted any kind of recognizable campaign to raise public awareness about the plight of their co-religionists.

Calling it Christian Genocide*

By Sol W. Sanders
Among the many anomalies of the Obama Administration’s foreign policy,  noneappears so anachronistic as its refusal to label the persecution and annihilation of Christians in the Middle East as genocide.
Granted that the term has been too often thrown around carelessly, used incorrectly as a synonym for prejudice and persecution of minorities. It does, of course, have a specific meaning. In the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide it was defined as  “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group,”   including by the means of  “killing members of the group.”

The stubborn refusal of the Obama White House and State Department to apply it to current events in the Mideast is, therefore, something of a mystery. Hundreds of thousands of Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities have been driven from their ancestral homes in Iraq and Syria or have been slaughtered during the rise of Daesh [ISIS/ISIL].

Iraq’s Christian population ten years ago was about 1.5 million, but now is estimated at only 500,000. In Syria, of the 1.1 million Christians, about 600,000 have fled or died. Christians have been tortured, raped and even crucified. Mosul, Iraq, which was home to 35,000, is now empty of Christians after an ISIS ultimatum that they either convert to Islam or be executed. In Syria, Gregorios III Laham, the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch of the Church of Antioch, reported “entire villages” have been “cleared of their Christian inhabitants.”

    When the vice president of Germany says the voters turn in the recent elections against Merkels policies is not going to make one little bit of difference in those policies, they are there to stay you can see uncle Adolf smiling in the background.

  2. Obola cannot see evil in his beloved islam, and supports the killings.

    Without his racism against anything not Islamic, America, Trump could never run for president.

    In effect, this muslim in the white house created the environment that would elect Trump.
