United States Government Compendium of Interagency and Associated Terms, 2017Genocide
An act committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group.
Under the terms of the Geneva Convention of 1948, genocide is a crime (whether committed during war or peace) subject to prosecution either in the nation where the act was committed or by an international tribunal having jurisdiction elsewhere.
“The draft Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the General Assembly on December 9, 1948 and unanimously recommended for adherence to the members of the United Nations. It came into force in October, 1950 between twenty-four states. The term ‘genocide’ was first proposed by Dr. Lemkin in the course of the war and incorporated on his suggestion into the Indictment of the Major German War Criminals. The Assembly Resolution on Genocide of December 11, 1946, and the Convention of 1948, are also the result of a remarkable one-man campaign.” Georg Schwarzenberger, Power Politics: A Study of International Society 634 (2d ed. 1951).

Axis Rule in Occupied Europe, Raphael Lemkin, 1944
United Nations General Assembly, 1946New conceptions require new terms. By "genocide" we mean the destruction of a nation or of an ethnic group. This new word, coined by the author to denote an old practice in its modern development, is made from the ancient Greek word genos (race, tribe) and the Latin cide (killing), thus corresponding in its formation to such words a tyrannicide, homicide, infanticide, etc. Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups. Genocide is directed against the national group as an entity, and the actions involved are directed against the individuals, not in their individual capacity, but as members of the national group.

2. In countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes in accordance with the law in force at the time of the commission of the crime and not contrary to the provisions of the present Covenant and to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This penalty can only be carried out pursuant to a final judgment rendered by a competent court.

When deprivation of life constitutes the crime of genocide, it is understood that nothing in this article shall authorize any State Party to the present Covenant to derogate in any way from any obligation assumed under the provisions of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
4. Anyone sentenced to death shall have the right to seek pardon or commutation of the sentence. Amnesty, pardon or commutation of the sentence of death may be granted in all cases.

6. Nothing in this article shall be invoked to delay or to prevent the abolition of capital punishment by any State Party to the present Covenant.
The Islamic Ottoman Government of Turkey is overthrown by Masonic Jewish socialists, who deceptively called themselves, the, “Young Turks.” The upshot of this is a Jewish led genocide of two million Christian Armenians, many of whom are tortured and have their hands cut off. Indeed, according to the British Consul, there were so many severed hands, that if they were laid side by side, a highway could have been made out of them.
This year, Professor A. Kulisher, a Jew, calls for the genocide of all Germans to be the priority of worldwide Jewry when he states, “Germany is the enemy of Judaism and must be pursued with deadly hatred. The goal of Judaism today is: a merciless campaign against all German peoples and the complete destruction of the nation. We demand a complete blockade of trade, the importation of raw materials stopped and retaliation towards every German, woman and child.”
Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion oversees a project in which a generation of Sephardic Jews in Israel are weeded out from their Ashkenazi counterparts at school and, to avoid suspicion by the parents, these Sephardic children are then taken on, “school trips.” On these supposed, “trips,” they actually receive a radiation treatment, purportedly for ringworm infection. At this time, the permitted maximum x-ray dose was 0.5 rad, yet these children received 350 rad, directly to their heads. As a result at least 6,000 die shortly afterwards, with those remaining developing severe conditions such as cancers, epilepsy, and psychosis. Those that are still alive today, and many of their children and grandchildren, are stricken with genetic diseases and malignant tumours. This is an attempt to genocide the Sephardic Jews who are an underclass in Israel and even referred to by many Ashkenazi Jews, as “niggers.”
Identification Credentials: Mandatory or Voluntary?, Steven D. Miller, 20171991 –
Of approximately the 697,000 American servicemen and women deployed to the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm, some 40,000 end up dead and a further 400,000 end up suffering from various maladies associated with what has become known as Gulf War Syndrome.
It is subsequently discovered that the military obtained 800,000 chemical and biological protective suits from the Isratex Company of Rainelle, W.V., which were defective, and contained holes and tears, that can allow in sufficient biological or chemical material to kill the person wearing it. Isratex, which netted $44 million in defence contracts in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s to make these protective suits, declared bankruptcy in 1995. For committing this genocide on American soldiers, for nothing more than financial gain, this is how the United States judicial system dealt with the principals of Isratex. Abe Brin, the former president, receives four months detention, three years supervised release and a $4,000 fine. His brother, Yehudah Yoav Brin (who had been a fugitive until he was captured at JFK airport), receives six months plus one day in jail, two years supervised release and a $40,000 fine. Zvi Rosenthal, formerly the company’s production manager, has to serve six months home detention, three months probation and receives a $20,000 fine..
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE; PART I - CRIMES; CHAPTER 50A – GENOCIDEEmperor Decius required a certificate of compliance to prove that one has worshiped him. Those who refused were executed. Executed for not having a government ID. The same genocide continues today. How is today’s compulsory ID any different than the genocide imposed by ISIS Syria rebels to starve millions of people with their “kneel or starve” requirement? Americans are so complacent to tyranny they think nothing of requiring others to kneel to the unholy gods they have chosen. If we don’t kneel, they will not grant their written permission (credential) for ANY of the traditional three rights of all mankind. They will not tolerate any suggestion that rights are God-given rights. Those who stand firm in their faith are marginalized without a credential from a Beast power.7 During harsh winters starvation becomes common for those who are prohibited
from earning wages, cashing a paycheck, buying travel, or defending themselves. My local food bank will not give charity food to anyone without a government ID. Kneel or starve. And they also demand proof that you have an address. Homeless are not welcome. How is their attempted genocide any different from the genocide of ISIS or of ancient Rome?
The U.S. Supreme Court keeps ruling that everyone has a right to contract for necessities of life. Even minors have the right. Housing is also a necessity of life. Genocide is defined in the Genocide Treaty that was ratified by the U.S. Senate on February 17, 1986. The Genocide Treaty defines, in time of peace or in time of war, the “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such: …(b)… causing bodily or mental harm… (c) deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.” Article III expands the definition of genocide to include the conspiracy to commit genocide, or public incitement to commit genocide, or attempt to commit genocide, or complicity in genocide. If your job requires you to demand ID, are you publicly inciting genocide?

Dr. Peter Hammond, Frontline Fellowship
Butler D. Shaffer:Gun Control Precedes Genocide
The genocides perpetrated upon the Christian Armenians in Ottoman Turkey from 1915-1917 were preceded by gun control and gun confiscation. The massacres of Christian peasants in the
Soviet Union from 1929-1953 were preceded by gun control and gun confiscation. The massacres of Jews and Christians in Nazi occupied Europe from 1939-1945; against Christians and anti-communists in Red China from 1949-1976; against Christians in Uganda from 1971-1979; against anti-communists and educated people in Cambodia from 1975-1979; and Christian Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994 – they were all preceded by gun control legislation, which effectively disarmed the targeted victims.
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A MemoirThe idea of creating systems designed to threaten, coerce, and kill, and to imbue such agencies with principled legitimacy, and not expect them to lead to wars, genocides, and other tyrannical practices, expresses an innocence we can no longer afford to indulge.
Robert Higgs:“I once spoke to someone who had survived the genocide in Rwanda, and she said to me that there was now nobody left on the face of the earth, either friend or relative, who knew who she was. No one who remembered her girlhood and her early mischief and family lore; no sibling or boon companion who could tease her about that first romance; no lover or pal with whom to reminisce. All her birthdays, exam results, illnesses, friendships, kinships—gone. She went on living, but with a tabula rasa as her diary and calendar and notebook. I think of this every time I hear of the callow ambition to 'make a new start' or to be 'born again': Do those who talk this way truly wish for the slate to be wiped? Genocide means not just mass killing, to the level of extermination, but mass obliteration to the verge of extinction.
Andrea Dworkin“Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a ‘Great Leap Forward’ that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children.
In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy’s mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state’s mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous.”
Malcolm X:Genocide begins, however improbably, in the conviction that classes of biological distinction indisputably sanction social and political discrimination.
Ronald Reagan:Any time you find the government involved in a conspiracy to violate the citizenship or the civil rights of a people, then you are wasting your time going to that government expecting redress. Instead, you have to take that government to the World Court and accuse it of genocide and all of the other crimes that it is guilty of today.
Howard ZinnLike the genocide of the Armenians before it, and the genocide of the Cambodians which followed it ... the lessons of the Holocaust must never be forgotten.
Adam Schiff:Historically, the most terrible things - war, genocide, and slavery - have resulted not from disobedience, but from obedience.
Simon Wiesenthal:So let us call genocide, genocide. Let us not minimize the deliberate murder of 1.5 million people. Let us have a moral victory that can shine as a light to all nations.
Michael Ignatieff:What connects two thousand years of genocide? Too much power in too few hands.
John Rucyahana, The Bishop of Rwanda: Finding Forgiveness Amidst a Pile of Bones:Genocide is not just a murderous madness; it is, more deeply, a politics that promises a utopia beyond politics - one people, one land, one truth, the end of difference. Since genocide is a form of political utopia, it remains an enduring temptation in any multiethnic and multicultural society in crisis.
Noam Chomsky:“The perpetrators of genocides are usually men of the herd, men who follow orders without questioning them. Rwanda was no exception.”
“Genocide" is an invidious word that officials apply readily to cases of victimization in enemy states, but rarely if ever to similar or worse cases of victimization by the United States itself or allied regimes.”
A.E. Samaan:“In the case of Yugoslavia v. NATO, one of the charges was genocide. The U.S. appealed to the court, saying that, by law, the United States is immune to the charge of genocide, self-immunized, and the court accepted that, so the case proceeded against the other NATO powers, but not against the United States.”
“Civil Wars happen when the victimized are armed. Genocide happens when they are not.”
“You can't get to genocide without first visiting identity politics.”
For Further Research:“It is incredible that this must be said, but the obvious seems to escape politicized academics, so we must state the obvious: Genocide is deliberate; it is premeditated. There is no genocide without premeditation. The murders are not unfortunate coincidences. This is why it is called "mass MURDER" and not "mass MANSLAUGHTER.”
