Recognition Of Genocide By Daesh

EDM number 346 in 2016-17, proposed by Fiona Bruce on 18/07/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Death, Ethnic groups, Human rights, Middle East, Racial discrimination, Religion and faith communities, Religious discrimination, Terrorism and United Nations.

That this House expresses profound concern that, despite voting 279 in favour and none against the motion calling on the Government to refer genocidal atrocities of Daesh to the United Nations Security Council on 14 April 2016, still, no such referral has been made; recalls the words of the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in an article in the Telegraph on 27 March 2016, Daesh are engaged in what can only be called genocide of the poor Yazidis, though for some baffling reason the Foreign Office still hesitates to use the term genocide; and calls on the Government to ensure that the unanimous will of Parliament is implemented with urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
