Hillary Clinton -- the leading candidate in the Democrat party for U.S. president -- said yesterday that ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is committing genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East, the CNN website reports today (December 30, 2015).
"Yes. I will now call it genocide," Clinton said at a town hall gathering in Berlin, New Hampshire. "And I will because we have enough evidence [to prove ISIS is committing genocide]."
She added, "What is happening is genocide, deliberately aimed at destroying not only the lives but wiping out the existence of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East in territory controlled by ISIS."
Pope Francis also said recently that ISIS is waging a world war against Christians and that radical Muslims are committing genocide by their savage actions to destroy Christianity.
