Secretary of State John Kerry told the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of State and Foreign Assistance today that he is having an “additional evaluation” done to help him determine whether the systematic murder of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East — at the hands of the Islamic State and others — should be declared “genocide.”

“I will make a decision on it as soon as I have that additional evaluation and we will proceed forward from there,” Kerry said.

    The silencing of the lambs. This is like talking to Lex Luther about preventing crime. I mean yes it is absolutely genicide. Premeditated and strategically planned. From the Arab Spring to the arming of Isis through Bengazi ect.,ect., ad in finitum. It says in revelation when the dragon tires in its attempts to eradicate Israel it starts killing all the Christians on this planet. When will Kerry tire of giving the beast ground cover. Or is he one of them? Judge him by his actions. Does he lie, does he sow deception, is his mind so convoluted he does not know right from wrong. Is he one of those described in scripture as having the horns of a lamb but the deceptive tounge of the dragon. He needs a study to determine if geocide is being carried out against chritians! Is that a significant clue into the demented mind an Islamic genocidal maniac or one who covers their tracks.

    The religious minorities of the Mideast are the aborigines of the Mideast − the ones who RESISTED the supremacist imperialist colonialist invaders from Arabia.

    To genocide the aborigines of the Mideast is, by any definition, is genocide.

    Arab Muslims must stop genociding other peoples.

    a distinction without a difference.

    clearly, it’s not a “genocide”, if they are offered a choice of converting or getting raped before being beheaded. so kerry is off the hook, and can go back to bullying israel, which is, after all, much safer.

    but whether it’s a “genocide” or just an ordinary kind of “massacre”, the christians and yazidis are being wiped out, and the obama administration isn’t lifting a finger to stop it, any more than they did to stop the plo’s ethnic cleansing of bethlehem, or hamas’ persecution of christians in gaza, or the moslem brotherhood’s pogrom against the coptic christians in egypt.

    It is not his decision to make at all and he is such an embarrassment to America. His daughter married to an Iranian, the Iranian he made the Iran “Deal” with at her wedding. He is a traitor to America and to all the world.
