ISIS Crimes Must Be Classified as Genocide
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
ISIS crimes have now been detailed during a press conference available to the world and to our legislators. And we are calling upon Secretary of State John Kerry to begin classifying what’s happening to our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Middle East as genocide. He refuses to do so and there are significant implications for not doing so.
Mat Staver: Matt, Liberty Counsel has a ministry called Liberty Relief International and LRI raises hundreds of thousands of dollars — actually in the million plus dollar range — to give resources to help our persecuted brothers and sisters, particularly in the Middle East, but not exclusively there, who are literally being tortured in unspeakable ways because of their Christian faith.
And this country is often silent, particularly our leadership in Washington, D.C. And so far, the Obama Administration’s Secretary of State John Kerry refuses to classify what is happening to our brothers and sisters as genocide.
Matt Barber: A comprehensive report was recently submitted to the State Department that shows clearly that there is genocide occurring at the hands of the Islamic State, Islamic Radicals, and that Christians are being targeted specifically and solely because they are followers of Christ.
