Parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe finally declares ‘ISIS/Da’esh’ atrocities against Christians as ‘Genocide’

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has unanimously adopted a resolution recognizing ‘ISIS/Da’esh’ atrocities as ‘Genocide.’

The vote by the European Parliament indicates the first time that the body is acknowledging the crisis situation as genocide.

Swedish member of the European Parliament, Lars Adaktusson, who tabled the resolution, called the vote a “historic decision".

He told Newsweek: “It’s really important that the Parliament passed it, on a political level and a moral level. The significance is the obligations that follow by such a recognition, the collective obligation to intervene, to stop these atrocities and to stop the persecution in the ongoing discussion about the fight against the Islamic State."

“It gives the victims of the atrocities a chance to get their human dignity restored. It’s also a historical confirmation that the European Parliament recognized what is going on and that they are suffering from the most despicable crime in the world, namely genocide," he said.

The resolution may pave the way for Britain and the US State Department to give similar recognition to ISIS’s slaughter of Christians. A motion to that effect has been tabled in the House of Commons.

The parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe made the declaration on the plight of Christians in the Middle East last week.
