THE Islamic State's brutal murders of minority groups including Christians should be recognised as genocide, there was "clear evidence of ISIS assassinations of church leaders, mass murders, torture, kidnapping for ransom in the Christian communities of Iraq and Syria" and "the sexual enslavement and systematic rape of Christian girls and women.
Since the beginning of the War on Terror, the world has seen a drastic rise of recruits for terrorist organizations. Traumatized by constant war, civilians are easily led to believe that the United States is the cause of all of their problems. Leaders in the United States have failed in counter-terrorism efforts in the Middle East because they refuse to reconsider their tactics. The jingoistic rhetoric spouted by Trump and others of his ilk represent a fundamental misunderstanding of the terrorist group and how they operate. They cannot simply be bombed away because they have invaded communities of innocent civilians.
It is my belief that the majority of ISIS terrorists will not face justice for their deeds. The United States and its allies have shown little interest in decimating the group or prosecuting its leaders, and it appears ISIS as a whole will continue largely unopposed for some time to come, even though certain individuals within ISIS may be captured.
Very little of what ISIS does is ever tracked and punished. Most hate crimes unfortunately go unpunished. ISIS has so much going on that counter forces cannot possibly take control of all of it. After it is rooted out the perpetrators will be given amnesty. There is just so much crime and violence that it is overwhelming to police it all.
