Why Will Our Government Not Recognize the Genocide Against Christians?

Hat tip National Review and Coptic Solidarity

Nina Shea has written a damning article in National Review that is cross-posted in Coptic Solidarity. The burning issue is: Why won't our government recognize the campaign of genocide by ISIS against Christians and call it what it is?

It is beyond shameful and is a black mark on our State Department, John Kerry and our president.

Recently, I read a fascinating book by the U.S. delegate to the UN, Samantha Power, titled "A Problem from Hell -- America in the Age of Genocide." It details the origins and the U.S. response to the most horrific incidents of genocide in the past 100 years -- Turkey, Cambodia, Iraq, Bosnia, Rwanda, Srebrenica, and Kosovo. What was amazing was that the U.S. did little or nothing in any of these events to stop the genocide. Excuses ranged from "We didn't realize how bad it was." to "It wasn't in our national interest." Ms. Power's conclusion: Silence in the face of atrocity is not neutrality; silence in the face of atrocity is acquiescence. Our leaders will condemned by history for their silence.
