How the ACLJ is Fighting ISIS Genocide

By Jay Sekulow1469628130336

Earlier this week, ISIS jihadists invaded a Catholic church during mass in the tranquil town of Normandy, France, reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they barbarically slit the throat of a Christian priest and stabbed numerous nuns. 

Jacques Hamel, the beloved 85-year-old Christian priest, is dead and one of the nuns is now fighting for her life.

ISIS has already claimed responsibility, calling the jihadists “soldiers of the Islamic State.”

One thing becomes very clear in the wake of this latest attack in a long string of jihadist terror striking western Europe and the United States – the jihadist genocide against Christians is rapidly spreading across the globe.

What has been happening in Syria, Iraq, and Africa could now happen in any town or city in the United States or Europe.  These jihadists are at war with us with one clear goal – eradicate Christians and any other group that refuses to bow its knee to its radical Islamic ideology.

Other recent reports reveal more atrocities and more evil of historic proportions. ISIS burned alive a 2-year-old girl and her family.  They executed 19 Yazidi girls who refused to become sex slaves.

Children are crucified and buried alive. Dozens are executed by kneeling above explosives buried in the sand right before they are detonated. The atrocities are endless – and now they are expanding into the West.

As the atrocities expand, so must our vital international advocacy campaign to end the ISIS genocide and defend Christians and other religious minorities.

For years, we have been defending persecuted Christians at the UN, on Capitol Hill, and around the world. Our advocacy ensured that the Obama Administration recognized the ISIS genocide against Christians.

As we’ve explained before:

We have sent key legal letters to U.N. Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, U.S. Permanent Representative to the U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, the 47 Member States of the U.N. Human Rights Council, and two letters to Secretary of State John Kerry. We’ve submitted key legal documents and made two oral interventions at the U.N. Human Rights Council. We also filed written observations regarding ISIS atrocities against Iraqi Christians in a case before the European Court of Human Rights. We’ve seen results as Congress, the European Parliament, and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe have passed genocide resolutions, Secretary Kerry recognized the “genocide against . . . Christians,” a representative of the U.N. Secretary General’s office raised the issue at the U.N. Security Counsel, and numerous countries called for action to protect religious minorities for ISIS genocide at the U.N. Human Rights Council.

But we can’t stop there.  We are actively preparing numerous legal letters and other advocacy measures – part of our 7-point plan – working in Congress, at the U.N., with world leaders, and pressuring the Obama Administration into action.

We have a moral and international legal obligation to act to stop this genocide and protect these Christians and other religious minorities.

Because the jihadists are now attacking priests in Normandy and Americans on U.S. soil,  we must destroy them.

There is no other option.

Stop the Genocide. Protect Christians.
