Kerry declares ISIS committing genocide against Christians, others

by  |  published on March 17, 2016

Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday that the Islamic State is committing genocide against Christians and other minorities in the Middle East, after facing heavy pressure from lawmakers and rights groups to make the rare designation.

“In my judgment, Daesh is responsible for genocide against groups in territory under its control, including Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims,” Kerry said at the State Department. Daesh is another name for the Islamic State.

He accused ISIS of “crimes against humanity” and “ethnic cleansing.”

The announcement was a surprise, at least in terms of the timing. A day earlier, a State Department spokesman said they would miss a congressionally mandated March 17 deadline to make a decision. Yet as the department took heat from lawmakers for the expected delay, the department confirmed Thursday morning that Kerry had reached the decision that Christians, Yazidis and Shiite groups are victims of genocide.

It comes after the House this week passed a nonbinding resolution by a 393-0 vote condemning ISIS atrocities as genocide.

    Finally. The parasite said the truth yes it sure took him long enough but he finally got a set and called the barbaric animals just what they are

    As I replied to WND article on the same subject, likely cause of it is that Hanoi John got a cutoff-time from a doctor and wants to clear that minuscule thing that passes for his conscience.

    So, after all this time the idiot finally realizes what’s been going on. Now, if his Islamic boss will only open his eyes and admit the truth, then maybe we can get somewhere.

      Only way 0bama will admit the truth of ISIS genocide of all kafirs will be to proclaim it as the “will of allah”.

    I am sure glad he told us that or we may have never known it. I have known it for years as have most of the readers on this site. It sure took him long enough to remove his head from where the sun don’t shine. I guess they didn’t want to admit it because obozo referred to them as the JV team. If they are I sure would hate to run into the varsity squad. Obama shown to be incompetent and a muzzie supporter once again. Way to go o.

    It took him long enough. The muslims, ALL MUSLIM, have been declaring this for centuries. It is who they are. So what jarred Kerry off his dead end.

      See my comment above.

    When did Kerry finally grow a brain?

        “…if the traitor and the muzzie in the WH ever do they will go all out against this terrorist muslim scum” — unfortunately mussies when they develop as much as one braincell are like Professor Moriartys, using it entirely to evil. In reality, Hanoi John and his boss would use it to further the aims of daesh to justify its name (in arabic it’s short for “dar-elislam-shams”, which means “islamic misrule of everything under sun”).
