365 Days. 310 Attacks. 473 Victims. 173 Murdered. 22 Raped.
This is a GENOCIDE! The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group….yet no one seems to mind it… and it has been ongoing for 20 years!
When the Genocide Convention was passed by the United Nations in 1948, the world said, “Never again.” But the history of the 20th century instead proved that “never again” became “again and again.” The promise the United Nations made was broken, as again and again, genocides are killing more people than all the international wars of the 20th century combined! We are such a people!
