ROUZER VOTES TO CLASSIFY ISIS ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANS “GENOCIDE”

Rep David RouzerWashington, D.C. – This week, with the support of Congressman David Rouzer, the House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution to condemn the mass atrocities of ISIS against Christians, Yezidis and other minority groups displacing more than half a million and ruthlessly murdering thousands of men, women and children who will not align themselves with it’s cause.

“This administration can turn a blind eye all they want, but the fact of the matter is ISIS targets Christians, Yezidis and other ethnic and religious minorities brutally murdering them all. Without questions these heinous acts are genocide, and we should call it what it is. The world needs to know that the U.S. Congress and the American people condemn these atrocious acts of brutality and murder by ISIS.”

The resolution passed the House with a unanimous vote of 383-0. The resolution was voted on ahead of a congressionally mandated deadline of March 17 for Secretary of State John Kerry and the White House to make a final decision on whether ISIS is perpetrating genocide.

    The Obama administration’s rejection of the word “genocide” where Christians are concerned fits a familiar pattern:
    •Although Obama repeatedly claimed when he was running for office that if elected president he would recognize the Armenian Genocide — another instance when Muslims (Turks) sought to eradicate Christians (Armenians) — he has failed to keep his word.
    •When asked about the plight of Christians under ISIS, Colonel Steve Warren — sounding like White House spokesman Josh Earnest — said “We’ve seen no specific evidence of a specific targeting toward Christians.”
    •Although Christians number 10% of Syria’s population, only 2% of refugees accepted into the U.S. from there are Christian. (The majority of refugees — almost 98% — are Sunni Muslims, the same sect to which ISIS belongs and thus are not persecuted for their religious identity.)
    •When inviting scores of Muslim representatives, the State Department has repeatedly denied visas to solitary Christian representatives.
    •When a few persecuted Iraqi Christians crossed the border into the U.S., they were thrown in prison for several months and then sent back to the war zone.
    •When persecuted Coptic Christians planned on joining Egypt’s anti-Muslim Brotherhood revolution of 2013, the Obama administration, in the person of Ambassador Anne Patterson, counseled them not to.
    •And when persecuted Iraqi and Syrian Christians asked for arms to join the opposition fighting ISIS, D.C. refused. In light of this, and of the other facts noted above, to still fail to understand which ‘side’ U.S. leadership is on–they currently claim to be on the side of ‘democracy’, ‘freedom’, and ‘human rights’–is to be beyond naïve. The Obama administration is doing everything that it can to avoid providing aid and assistance to persecuted Christians. The legitimate question to ask ones self is: Why…???
