Is ISIS Guilty of Genocide or Not? Sweden Cannot Decide

The Daesh terrorist organization, which is responsible for ethnic purges and the mass murder of Christians in the Middle East, is not guilty of genocide, according Sweden’s ruling parties the Social Democrats and the Green Party.

    Who cares WTF Sweden thinks. They’re all going to die in flames soon anyway.

  • So if every decides to call it an Official Genocide, then what? What I would like to know is how they intend to stop it from continuing. And for those who don’t believe it’s genocide yet, what do they intend to do to stop it from becoming a genocide?

      Then they crack out the heavy artillery like Mooch Obama did with her #BringBackOurGirls campaign. And they’ll get the same exact results.

    The Canadian government is still trying to have it both ways, it’s looks like genocide, smells like genocide, quacks like genocide, but until some sort of judicial process occurs, with some sort of international investigation, well the government of Canada can’t actually call it genocide:

    Speaker, I just want to inform my colleague that indeed the Government
    of Canada is asking for this international investigation on the
    atrocities and the horrors committed by Daesh and to be sure that it
    will be prosecuted and also to investigate whether it is a genocide. We are pushing for that. We are asking for that because it has all the hallmarks of a genocide. It is why this recognition should be done properly internationally. There is nothing more important than to recognize a genocide by the proper process.

    Madam Speaker, the horrors committed by the so-called Islamic State have the hallmarks of genocide, but official recognition of genocide
    is to be done by a credible judicial process, following a proper
    international investigation, an investigation that we will do everything
    to support, as I have said to the UN special advisor on the prevention
    of genocide. Our U.K. ally has also said
    that the government is not a prosecutor, a judge, or a jury. Canada
    continues to stand side by side—

      Its no less than can be expected from a government led by Juthtinian.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      This they’re going to “investigate”, while at the same time we all “know” that teaching the Indians how to read and wipe their asses *was* genocide apparently. :rolleyes

  • Swedes, Islamists will kill you whether is say something is genocide or not. Take a stand and call things what they are.

  • lolwut?

    Well, lets hope ISIS cells inside Sweden try and prove them wrong.

  • Millie_Woods

    If it’s ‘genocide’ the UN is obliged to intervene. If it’s just a slaughter, everybody can ignore it. I suspect this is what’s behind certain government’s reluctance to brand ISIS’ mass killings as genocide.

    They have a history of having a way with words.

    Forgive me for not being really concerned about Sweden at this point in time. We have a PM who refuses to call Islamic practices such as “honour killing” barbaric. As a Canadian that concerns me more than what Swedish socialists do.
