One year anniversary of Congress and Secretary of State, John Kerry, recognizing ISIS genocide against minorities in Iraq and Syria
WASHINGTON, DC, March 20, 2017 —Friday marked the one year anniversary of the US Congress and US Department of State declaration that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria committed genocide against minority groups, including Christians, Yezidis and moderate Shia and Sunni Muslims in its territory.
In remembrance, Juliana Taimoorazy, founder of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council, participated in a panel discussion on Capitol Hill on Thursday, March 17.
“I want to thank Congressman Steve King (IA-04), Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-08) and Dr. Walid Phares for sponsoring this discussion and for their steadfast commitment to the survivors of the genocide in Iraq.”
“What we need is a free society to practice our religion. My people kept their faith in Christ, and many have kept their loyalty to the land, the land they have called home for thousands of years,” said Ms. Taimoorazy in her remarks.
