By Mark Pattison – Catholic News Service

WASHINGTON (CNS) — Some panelists at a Sept. 9 forum on Islamic State atrocities want the United States and United Nations to declare the Islamic State’s actions in the Middle East a genocide.

”We failed with the Armenian genocide in Turkey. We failed in Srebrenica,” Bosnia-Herzegovina, where 8,000 boys and men were slaughtered by Bosnian Serb nationalists 20 years ago, said former U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, now a distinguished senior fellow at the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative.

”Will we fail again in the Middle East?” Wolf asked.   Some panelists referred to genocide as “the g-word.”

”The evil of the past is upon us,” said Katrina Lantos Swett, chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. ”The indifference and the willful inability to hear is something my own family endured,” she added. Her father, the late U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos, was a Holocaust survivor.

”No religious group has been free of ISIS’ depravations,” Swett said. Christians, Yazidis and even Muslims who do not subscribe to the Islamic State’s ideology and worldview, have been killed, and women raped and taken as slaves. ”Silence is no option, nor was it even an option, for men and women of conscience,” she said. – See more

    I have to strongly disagree with the Catholic News Service assertions concerning Bosnia. The truth is that Clinton lied us into that war. Atrocities were committed by both sides. But the Serbs were actually acting in response to aggression by the Muslims. What else is new? Also, former Pres. Clinton frequently made mention of 8,000 Muslims killed and interred in mass graves. Perhaps this was another groups of 8,000. All I know is that 8,000 peoples from Bosnia whose names matched some list of 8,000 allegedly murdered Bosnian Muslims were brought to the US by Clinton and the State Dept., working hand in hand with the UN and the ever grasping for taxpayer funds Lutheran Family Services. Catholic Family Services plays the same game of doing their services of mercy with taxpayer funds. BTW, many of those poor, mistreated Bosnians were brought to my hometown. They immediately set about making their demands that their housing, and such things as TV’s be not less than American citizens. I have a very close relative whose job on occasion put her in intimate contact with this fraud.

    There were mass graves from both sides. There were atrocities done on both sides. The Serbs did not start that conflict. It was carried out for the purpose of installing a Muslim state in the heart of Europe. The poor taxpayers in America is still funding operations concerning this totally distorted war. Why? When I started researching this war and finding out the horrific atrocities the US/NATO military allowed Muslims to do to the Serbs, I cried myself to sleep for over 3 months. I mean buckets of tears. I mean boxes of tissues. Our pilots were ordered to stand down and observe things so mind boggling I dare not mention them here.

    Like everyone else, I long for Muslims to know the true Jesus as Lord and Savior. I long for them to come out of the perverse teachings of Islam and know salvation and true peace. And praise God that this is going on today. Many Muslims are getting saved. People under Islam have my daily prayers and intercession. I will not, however, turn my eyes away from a lie. We in the USA, need to understand the horrible truth about the Bosnian War so that we can repent before God for allowing America’s twisted involvement. This war took place before I had the internet. Had I known the truth of it, I would have been calling and writing Congress every day.

    No doubt I will offend someone with my post. And I am truly sorry that my words will offend some. But I told the truth. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth. We should not be afraid to revisit those times when we allowed horrible things to occur because we just were deceived by our own government.
