Letter to Obama to call ISIS activity genocide

rotator-10-14-Stop-Genocide.jpgLet’s make it clear to President Obama that Americans do care about fighting ISIS and want the United States to do everything it can to stop them and to protect Christians, Yezidis and others being targeted.

We all know that President Obama loves to work with the United Nations, so it is perfect timing to have him ask the U.N. Security Counsel to adopt a resolution calling this genocide.  Once that would occur, all sorts of support would be available to stop the genocide, help the victims and the International Criminal Court would try the perpetrators.  

Sign our letter to President Obama to call this genocide and recommend that the United Nations adopt a resolution doing the same.

Dear President Obama,

In Syria, ISIS recently crucified a dozen Christians, but not before torturing them (including a 12 year old boy) and publicly raping the women. ISIS has announced plans to executive another 180 Christians later this week.

In Iraq, ISIS rounded up all the Yezidis in the village of Sinjar, killed the men and older women, and then sold the women and children to fighters in Iraq and Syria as sex slaves.

A recent article in The New York Times said “Now ISIS is looking to eradicate Christians and other minorities altogether.”  They quote the President’s own Ambassador at large for religious freedom David Saperstein, “Everyone has seen the forced conversions, crucifixions and beheadings.  To see these communities, primarily Christians, but also the Yezidis and others, persecuted in large numbers is deeply alarming.”

This is genocide. It clearly fits the definition of genocide found in the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. 

I am writing to ask you to call this genocide and recommend that the United Nations adopt a resolution doing the same.

I want the United States to do everything it can to stop ISIS and to protect Christians, Yezidis and others being targeted.

Please, ask the U.N. Security Counsel to adopt a resolution calling this genocide.  Once that occurs, all sorts of support would be available to stop the genocide, help the victims and the International Criminal Court would try the perpetrators.

It is VERY important that Congress PASS H. Con. Res. 75 & S. Res 340 – DECLARE ISIS’ TARGETING OF RELIGIOUS MINORITY GROUPS AS GENOCIDE. ISIS is not just targeting people because of their ethnic, but also for the religious affiliations. Paying a “tax” when of another religious affiliation only works temporarily, until said people run out of money. The atrocities people are subjected to because of ethnicity AND religion by ISIS are deplorable.


Thank you,
