Human rights attorney and activist Amal Clooney is calling on the United Nations to protect genocide victims in Iraq.
In a speech to the UN, she warned that the situation risks becoming another Rwanda unless the member states take action against ISIS.
Six months ago, Secretary of State John Kerry officially designated Islamic State as “responsible for genocide” against Christians, Yazidis and other vulnerable groups in areas under ISIS control in Syria and Iraq. So why has the Obama administration entrusted the survival of these people—and so much valuable American aid—to a troubled office at the United Nations, which, like its parent organization, has never even acknowledged that the genocide exists?
