ACLJ Urges UN to Act on IS Christian Genocide; Calls on UN to Mobilize, Take Swift Action on IS

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is urging the new secretary general of the United Nations to take action on the genocide of Christians in the Middle East, the Christian Post website reports today (April 27, 2017).

"In our letter, we urge the United Nations to 'declare that the ongoing atrocities committed by the Islamic State [IS] and associated groups constitute genocide and that those victimized by the genocide include Christians,'" the ACLJ wrote this week.

"We also urge the secretary general 'to communicate with all appropriate offices of the United Nations accordingly and to mobilize the international community to take swift and decisive action,'" the law group added.

The letter to Antonio Guterres -- the UN secretary general -- shows a long list of horrors (such as beheadings) that Christians and other religious minorities have suffered at the hands of the Islamic State in Iraq, Syria, and other predominantly Islamic countries in the region.
