Breitbart Exclusive: Religious Minorities React to Islamic State Genocide Declaration

The article states:  “Retired Lt. Col. Sargis Sangari, who was deployed to Iraq during his 20-year career in the U.S. Army, said the declaration is a step in the right direction.”

“The statement by Secretary of State Kerry was surprising,” he told Breitbart News. “Although it is a start toward addressing the security issues in the region, it falls short just as the House resolution, designating the Islamic State’s violence against Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities as genocide, fell short.”

He added:

“The Islamic State will now target the Assyrian and Yezidis in Assyria, Nineveh Plain more actively as a way of replying to Secretary Kerry’s statement and to the Congressional failure to recognize the Assyrians as an ethnicity…”

Both the State Department and Congress have failed to recognize the genocide against the Assyrian ethnicity by lumping the Assyrians into a Christian denominational category only. Although the Assyrians are Christians, their ethnicity is being eradicated: they are Assyrian Christians.
