    Former president Barack Obama gave recently a very friendly interview to CBS News’ financial analyst Mellody Hobson which went under mainstream media’s radar for obvious reasons. During the interview, Barry suggested that that what happened in Nazi Germany almost one hundred years ago could very well happen now in America, under Donald Trump’s regime, because…well, I don’t really know, feelings maybe? Barack Obama also blathered something about an American genocide, and unfortunately for him, his caustic remarks were immortalized by Greg Hinz, Crain’s Chicago Business political columnist, as former POTUS was delivering a speech to the Economic Club of Chicago....

    Are the conquest narratives in the Old Testament any different from what we are currently viewing with ISIS throughout the Middle East and Europe? Questions like this often come up in discussing the existence of objective moral values and duties and their proper grounding. When God is posited as the grounding of morality, the objector usually brings up some obscure OT text that he or she thinks will demonstrate that God has a warped sense of morality and it is usually in this context that the conquest narratives are brought up. False DistinctionOne reason this problem has persisted is that...

    Ratko Mladić, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb army and one-time fugitive from international justice, has been sentenced to life imprisonment after being convicted of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity by a UN tribunal at The Hague. More than 20 years after the Srebrenica massacre and his first indictment by the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the soldier nicknamed the “butcher of Bosnia” has been found guilty of of multiple offences. As he entered the courtroom, Mladić gave a broad smile and thumbs up to the cameras – a gesture that infuriated relatives of...

    Following the failed coup of July 15, the Turkish government has begun a brutal crackdown on people who it claims have ties with the movement of Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric living in Pennsylvania whom the government accuses of organizing the attempted coup.This scale of arrests and governmental pressures might be new to Muslim Turks, but Armenians – the victims of Turkish racism for all seasons – are being targeted again.The newspaper Agos covered the latest rights abuses against Armenians:Armenian trainer fired under the cover of “Fethullah Terrorist Organization”As part of the purge that was started after the coup attempt,...

    Many nations have been victimized by Islamic supremacism and jihadist campaigns, but Yazidis – an ancient ethno-religious community indigenous to northern Mesopotamia – seem to be one of the main and continued victims of this genocidal ideology.Even though Yazidis are ethnically Kurdish, they are a distinct religious community with their own unique culture.The recent invasions of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have finally brought this persecuted people to the world’s attention. But genocidal massacres, ethnic cleansings and forced conversions against Yazidis by Muslims did not start with the advent of the Islamic State. Yazidis, a peaceful community opposed...

    U.S. environmental organizations are perceived by many as independent voices within policy and political debates. They have historically championed land and resource protection, air and water pollution standards, and conservation of unique plant and animal species.In recent years, however, many environmental organizations have raised their profiles by actively combating development and resource extraction, even in cases when it is lawfully permitted by federal and state governments and regulators. So who is behind this tidal wave of activity? When the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) pulled back the curtain in a new report, the answers were startling.E&E Legal released...

    The left has been seriously embarrassed by the stories of communist atrocities, corruption and monumental failures that have been pouring out of Eastern Europe since the collapse of the communist regimes there. The carefully cultivated image of communists as honest humanitarians dedicated to helping the poor and downtrodden has been thoroughly demolished. But American leftists are fighting back, trying to counter these stories by calling attention to the alleged sins and crimes of the United States. Hence the success of a recent disinformation operation that resulted in a spate of stories in U.S. newspapers and magazines charging that the our...

    The mayor of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico cast serious doubt Saturday on the claims made by San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has repeatedly attacked President Trump and accused him of abandoning Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Guaynabo’s mayor, Angel Perez, said in an interview with The Daily Caller that his experience with the federal government has been different from Cruz’s, in part because — unlike Cruz — he has been participating in meetings with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies. Cruz, a Democrat, has repeatedly accused Trump and the federal...

There could be nearly 500 new jobs by mid-2019. …

    The new school year has started this month in Turkey, but Assyrian Christians, otherwise known as Syriacs or Chaldeans, still do not have a single primary school in the country where they could learn their native language and culture. The Istanbul-based newspaper Agos reported that the activists of the Syriac community applied to the Ministry of National Education in 2012 to get its permission and support to open a Syriac kindergarten in Istanbul. When their application was rejected, they took on a legal struggle and were finally able to open the Mor Efrem kindergarten without any economic support from the...

    Iraqi Christian genocide survivors may forever vanish from their ancient homelands. They were in crisis when I met with them a few days before Christmas last year in Erbil, in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. Now their survival is endangered and two things must be done to secure it. The Senate should quickly bring up and pass the House-passed, bipartisan H.R. 390 (Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act)—which I authored with my colleague, Rep. Ann Eshoo (CA-18). H.R. 390 authorizes the Administration to direct humanitarian and recovery assistance to all religious and ethnic minority communities ISIS targeted...

    We are witnessing a growing trend of angry attempts to erase past racial injustices through attacks upon Civil War monuments, those symbolically associated with a tragic era of slavery. Inflamed by violence leading to a death characterized in the media as a "white supremacist rally" protesting removal of a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia hundreds of other statues, markers and other symbols memorializing important Confederate figures and events are now also under siege throughout the nation. If we are to erase evidence and symbols of historical injustices, where does this end? After all, why stop with...

According to a publicity email sent by the Museum, the study was set to be launched at an event at the US Institute for Peace in Washington, D.C., on September 11 and was overseen by a former US intelligence and national security official under Obama, Cameron Hudson, now director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide....

    On August 3, 2014, the Islamic State attacked the Yezidis of Sinjar in Iraq’s Nineveh province. Thousands of Yezidis were massacred and many others abducted, while more than half a million fled for their lives. Three years later, the conditions that led to ISIS’s rise and the failure to prevent genocide and crimes against humanity against the Yezidis, Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities—including the collapse of local governance and security—have not been addressed. The successful political reconstruction of Iraq and Kurdistan depends on the ability to ensure justice and fair treatment for the region’s most vulnerable populations. The...

    Israel's vaunted Mossad missed at least two chances to capture Nazi fugitive Dr Josef Mengele, who sent hundreds of thousands of Jews to their death at Auschwitz, a former agent said Tuesday. Rafi Eitan, who commanded the audacious capture in 1960 of top Nazi Adolf Eichmann in Argentina, said that during the hunt he and his team discovered Mengele's hideout. "At the same time as we caught Eichmann, Mengele was living in Buenos Aires. We found his apartment and kept it under observation," he told Israeli public radio as the spy agency declassified its file on operations against the man...

    Full title: 'Nigerian Gunmen Kidnap Priest And Murder Him In Cold Blood, Attack Another Priest Driving And Riddle His Car With Bullets' ~~~ Nigeria has been ranked as the most dangerous place to be a Christian. Between constant fighting with Muslim terrorists, war, and robbers, being a Christian and especially a priest is a very risky proposition. Many clergy have been and continue to be kidnapped, tortured, and murdered. Such was what happened in Nigeria recently as a group of gunmen attacked two Catholic priests. One was kidnapped and found murdered less than 24 hours later, and the second one...
