As the congressionally mandated deadline looms for the Obama Administration to make a determination whether the atrocities committed by ISIS – the Islamic State – against Christians in the Middle East constitute “genocide,” the House of Representatives has made abundantly clear that a genocide is ongoing and that dying Christians deserve critical legal protections.
Tonight, the House of Representatives unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution by a vote of 393 to 0 declaring ISIS beheadings, enslavement, mass rape, and other atrocities against Christians as genocide.
The Obama Administration’s congressionally mandated deadline to report on whether Christians face genocide in the Middle East is just a little over 48 hours away. It is vitally important that we increase the pressure on the Administration.
Tonight’s vote in Congress adds the U.S. House of Representatives to a growing list of international bodies who have recognized what we have been arguing for years: ISIS is inflicting genocide against Christians.
As Christians are dying daily, we must be their voice.
