I remember when the Khmer Rouge ordered people out of the cities of Cambodia and then went about systematically killing leaders of the country and their families. The leader of the Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot, killed approximately 1.7 million people. Adolf Hitler killed over 6 million Jews, Gypsies and gay people. The Holocaust will be forever etched in the minds of all mankind. For the most part the world community stood back and let this happen.
Mankind is about to watch ISIS, or the Islamic Stat,e commit genocide on the people of Iraq. The leader of ISIS has ordered the mutilation of women's genitals in the city of Mosul. ISIS demands that people convert to Islam or be killed; most flee for their lives. The Islamic State kills and crucifies publicly some of its victims. ISIS, as it was called before becoming the Islamic State, was connected to al Qaida, then was rejected by al-Qaida for being to violent.
The United States of America must work in concert with the United Nations to end the Islamic State. The leaders of the Islamic State need to be brought before the World Court and prosecuted for the criminals they are, if possible. Mankind cannot stand by and let another Holocaust take place. No one should be killed over race, creed, or religion. I call for a swift and terrible response to these criminals.
