Hilary Clinton: Islamic State’s killing of Christians should be labeled genocide

December 31, 2015

Distancing herself from Obama administration policy, presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said that she now believes that the Islamic State’s killing of Christians in Syria and Iraq should be labeled a genocide.

The Islamic State “deliberately aimed at destroying not only the lives, but wiping out the existence of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East in territory controlled by ISIS,” she said on December 29, according to a Politico report.
