Advocates encourage Trump to take action on anniversary of Christian genocide designation

Lawmakers, advocates and survivors gathered Thursday to mark the anniversary of the U.S. designation of Islamic State genocide against Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities in the Middle East, urging the Trump administration to turn those words into action.

Friday marks the one-year anniversary of the designation issued by former Secretary of State John F. Kerry, which followed the 393-0 vote in the House to recognize the crimes of the Islamic State as genocide.

Reps. Jeff Fortenberry, Nebraska Republican, and Anna G. Eshoo, California Democrat, were among those in attendance Thursday at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center to celebrate the bipartisan achievement and outline steps to take going forward.

Ms. Eshoo recalled her surprise that the resolution passed.

“It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by since the resolution passed in the House, and as I have often said to my wonderful, blessed friend, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, if someone had said to me around that time that this would pass the House, I would have said, ‘I don’t think so,’” Ms. Eshoo said. “And yet it did, and it became the policy of the United States of America that there indeed was [and] is a genocide that is taking place.”

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT GENOCIDE HERE IN THIS COUNTRY BEFORE WE TRY AND POLICE THE WORLD, ABORTION CLINICS, PLUS THE BELOW.

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    The Christians are the ones who need compassion. The genocide of Christians by Islam in the Middle East and Africa have vanished most of the Christian population from their own lands. That is why Muslims are now in majority. Christians are the people who need compassion, and not those Islam people in sheep’s clothing whose goal is to trample all Christians and take over the whole world as ordered in their Quran. History has proven that. It is a fact.
    US must be a leader, allow Christians as refugees, and protect their own land from being taken away by Muslims.
    During the 8 years of Obama, Christians have been persecuted and discriminated against on our own land, as Islam are tolerated given the 1st Amendment Rights. Christians were not accepted by Obama as refugees, most of them sent back to be killed in their own land. Very few were accepted into the US, compared to tens of thousands of Muslims.

    WHY ARE WE NOT BRINGING PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS HERE INSTEAD OF ISLAMIC SO CALLED REFUGEES.? VETTING WOULDN’T BE AS HARD AS WE CAN ASK CERTAIN CHRISTIAN QUESTIONS THAT ONLY A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST WOULD KNOW AND AN ISLAMIST WOULD ONLY GUESS. I SAY NO MORE MUSLIMS ONLY CHRISTIANS.

      I say the Genocide of muslims, that’s their plan for all of America!

  • goldie says:

    All genocide is evil and should be condemned – including and especially the taxpayer-funded one going on right now in our own country against unborn American children; abortion.
