UK Parliament calls ISIS’s atrocities genocide

House of Commons MPs have voted in favour of recognising the treatment of Christians and other minorities at the hands of Islamic State as genocide. Christian MP Fiona Bruce tabled the motion in the House of Commons, which also calls on the United Nations Security Council to bring members of IS to justice for their crimes, which include mass killings and sexual slavery.

Today is a day of hope for every Christian, Yazidi or member of other religious minorities suffering under the terror reign of ISIS,” said Robert Clarke, an English barrister and Director of European Advocacy of ADF International who was present at the House during the vote.
