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.

I don’t believe that any nation should send troops or arms into Syria or Iraq except to defeat jihadists such as ISIS, Al Qaida, or other wicked armies that are murdering, raping, destroying people in this horrible genocide! In the past the US government and other nations have supplied weapons and ammunition to so-called moderate Muslim fighters in the Middle East that wound up joining ISIS and other evil jihadist armies to try to overthrow nations to establish some kind of a caliphate or something. Surely the genocide that the wicked ISIS and other jihadists are doing must be stopped!
