Secretary of State John Kerry’s words Thursday could be harbingers of relief to the hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis who have been marked for extermination by ISIS. “In my judgment, (ISIS) is responsible for genocide against groups in areas under its control,” he told a news conference. But words must be followed by action. Without doubt, current policy of degrading ISIS–not destroying the terrorists–will come too late for untold additional victims of their unspeakable barbarities. Clearly, a new coalition of the willing needs to be constituted to destroy the genocidal “Caliphate,” and to create safety zones for embattled minorities in Syria and Iraq.
