    The human rights lawyer represents Armenia in the ECHR - but what happened in 1915 when up to 1.5m Armenians were killed, and why do Turks deny it was a genocide?

Mrs Clooney is part of a team representing Armenia in a case she opens on Wednesday in which a Turkish politician was convicted by Switzerland for denying the genocide in 1915 ever took place. Doğu Perinçek, chairman of the Turkish Workers' Party, described the genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians - a...

    ( Nelson Mandela (right) and F.W. de Klerk) As South Africa descends into what its radical rulers refer to as the Second Phase of their communist revolution, warnings about an approaching genocide and full-blown communist tyranny are growing progressively louder. In a statement released last week, the organization Genocide Watch again sounded the alarm surrounding the ongoing, regime-linked preparations to exterminate minority Afrikaner farmers. South Africas credit rating, meanwhile, was downgraded again last month to barely above junk status. Parliament recently descended into a brawl after a politician called the president a "criminal and a thief." As the warning signs...

    The equation seems fairly simple: The more the world's population rises, the greater the strain on dwindling resources and the greater the impact on the environment. The solution? Well, that's a little trickier to talk about. Public-health discussions will regularly include mentions of voluntary family planning as a way to reduce unwanted pregnancies and births. But, said Jason Bremner of the Population Reference Bureau, those policies can also pay dividends for the environment. "And yet the climate-change benefits of family planning have been largely absent from any climate-change or family-planning policy discussions," he said. A 2010 study published in the...

The civilians were not limited to enemy German and Japanese civilians, but included French civilians in occupied territory, Jewish prisoners and numerous others who were caught in the war zone.

The Armenian Holy Martyrs Church in Der Zor, located in the Syrian desert 280 miles northeast of Damascus, was constructed in memory of the victims of the 1916 Armenian genocide and consecrated in 1991.

    A Rwandan man wanted for his alleged role in his countrys 1994 genocide was apprehended in northeastern Maine last week after illegally crossing the U.S.-Canadian border.

[] Teganya is an ethnic Hutu, the majority group in Rwanda. In 1994, he worked as a medical intern at the University Teaching Hospital of Butare, where Hutu extremists killed over 200 patients and staff members who...

    Pope Francis has joined with Christians facing genocide in Iraq and Syria, calling upon the world to make an armed response to the Islamic State. He has asked the world to "stop these crimes" and called for the use of "a professional, well-equipped army." You know a situation is bad when a pope calls for an armed response. Pope Francis, widely appreciated as a practical and realistic man, is not just calling for a cease-fire or negotiations. Instead, he is inviting an armed response to the terrorism of the Islamic State. Such a call is virtually unprecedented for a pontiff...

    The Christian genocide taking place in the Middle East currently has reached alarming levels. Last week, the jihadist terrorist group ISIS, which means the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria although it is unrecognized as a nation took over Qaraqosh, the largest Christian town in Iraq, warning Christians to leave, convert or die. They are systematically beheading children. It is a part of an unprecedented, recent effort by the ISIS to extinguish Christians from northern Iraq. In 2003, there were about 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. After the Iraq War, that number dropped to as low as 200,000....

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Obamas Iraq policy in 2014 is his 2007 policy all over again. The minimal attacks on Al Qaeda are paired with the expectation that Iraqis will unite to achieve a political solution.But what if they dont?In 2007, Obama had claimed that American withdrawals would pressure Iraqis into a political solution. He was wrong. The withdrawals not only failed to move Iraq toward a political solution, but they gave Maliki and his Iranian allies the power they needed to marginalize the Kurds and the Sunnis.Obama went on insisting that the only...

    Terrorists from the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) have killed at least 500 members of Iraq's Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, Iraq's human rights minister told Reuters on Sunday. The killings reported by Iraqi Human Rights Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani to Reuters add to a long list of atrocities reportedly committed by the radical group in Iraq and neighboring Syria, where it wants to create a caliphate. "Some of the victims, including women and children, were buried alive in scattered mass graves in and around Sinjar," he said, and added that some 300 women were kidnapped as...

    Before leaving for vacation on Saturday, President Obama spoke briefly about the genocidal Islamist terrorists who are taking over large swaths of Iraq. When one reporter asked the president if he regretted not leaving any U.S. troops in Iraq, Obama replied that that wasn't even an option: Q Mr. President, do you have any second thoughts about pulling all ground troops out of Iraq? And does it give you pause as the U.S. -- is it doing the same thing in Afghanistan? THE PRESIDENT: What I just find interesting is the degree to which this issue keeps on coming up,...

    What Do Muslims Plan To Do To Christians? Beheadings, amputations, gunshots and crucifixions. That is what one analyst has elucidated recently, writing a very revealing statement describing what ISIS is doing to the Christians in Iraq: If you flee, you leave your home, your possessions, your community and your culture. What little you carry is soon stripped and looted from greedy militia men. You leave with your lives and the clothes on your back. But what if you cant or dont leave? What awaits you? Beheadings, amputations, gunshots and crucifixions. Unbending Sharia law including women and girls forced to undergo...

    The dramatic evidence pointing to the extermination of Christians and Christian culture in Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS) is impossible to ignore. This past week, upset Iraqis rallied outside the White House. A few days ago, an administration official finally met with Iraqi Christians. But the leader of the free world has yet to forcefully condemn one of the clearest cases of genocide since World War II. President Obama has previously addressed humanitarian issues by appealing to the Responsibility to Protect a relatively recent doctrine not clearly established or grounded in international law. While...

    For much of the summer, President Barack Obama had watched with alarm as a brutal, al-Qaida-linked insurgency seized more and more territory in northern Iraq. But it wasnt until Thursday, when Obama learned that genocide could be imminent, that the president decided the U.S. military had to act. The vivid reports streaming into the Situation Room that morning from U.S. diplomats and intelligence officials were unsettling, to say the least: Stories of mass executions, women being enslaved as child brides, members of a small religious group trapped on a mountain and potentially dying of thirst. The situation was falling apartfast....
