Dec 30 – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said that Daesh violence against Christians, Iraqi Yazidis and other religious minorities in the Middle East was genocide.

“I think I was asked this a couple months ago, and I said that term carries with it legal import, it is a very important concept and label for behavior that deserves that name,” Clinton said at a town hall in Berlin, New Hampshire, when asked about the Daesh’s killing of Christians, Yazidis, Kurdish Muslims and other religious minorities in the region.

“I am now sure we have enough evidence, what is happening is genocide deliberately aimed at destroying lives and wiping out the existence of Christians and other religious minorities,” Clinton said.

Daesh has targeted and killed members of the Yazidi religion, one of the oldest in Iraq, along with Christians and other religious minorities in the region it controls in the Middle East.

The administration of President Barack Obama is weighing whether to designate Daesh violence a genocide and which religious minorities would be coveraged by such a designation.

    She now has enough evidence!!! It was her and Obama that supported the Moslem Brotherhood’s Arab Spring movement which lead in Egypt to the burning of Christian Churches and killings of Christians by Moslem mobs, the beheading of Christians in Iraq by Moslems, the beheading of Christians in Syria by Moslems and the beheading of Christians by Moslems in Libya. Now not all Moslems should be blamed for those crimes HOWEVER it was Obama and Clinton that told the CIA to support the Moslem Brotherhood and it was the Moslem Brotherhood that spawned ISIS. No Christian should vote for her or any other Democrat because it appears that they want Christians wiped off the face of the earth.
