This is big news. The pressure builds on the White House and Secretary of State to remove their heads from…the sand. (C’mon, what did you think I was gonna’ say?)
The House approved a resolution Monday that declares the Islamic State is committing genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East — putting even more pressure on the Obama administration to do the same ahead of a deadline later this week.
The resolution passed the House with a unanimous vote of 383-0.
The resolution came to a vote just days after the release of a graphic new report by the Knights of Columbus and In Defense of Christians on ISIS’ atrocities. The report made the case that the terror campaign against Christians and other minorities in Syria, Iraq and other parts of the Middle East is, in fact, genocide.
They have two days to declare it genocide. It’s not even a question that it is. It’s just the Obama administration doesn’t want to admit it. If they fail in this, history will not treat them well.
