Trump signs Elie Wiesel Act into law

Postby Lamprecht » 5 months 2 days ago (Tue Jan 15, 2019 9:53 pm)

Trump has just signed a law named after Elie Wiesel: the racist, sexual abuser and pathological liar. So we are now legally obliged to "prevent or respond to" alleged atrocities overseas? I guess that doesn't include atrocities against the Palestinian people by Israel, right?

https://www.jww.org/blog/trump-signs-el ... -into-law/
U.S. President Donald Trump signed into law vital bipartisan legislation named for the late Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, the White House announced in a statement, on Jan. 15 – days before Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The ELIE WIESEL GENOCIDE AND ATROCITY PREVENTION ACT (GAPA), approved unanimously by the Senate in December has been a cornerstone of Jewish World Watch’s advocacy efforts for years. It’s incredible to finally see this vision of coordinated, holistic, and comprehensive genocide prevention realized! Thank you to both California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris for co-sponsoring this critical piece of legislation, which establishes the prevention of genocide and other atrocity crimes as a core national security interest and fundamental moral imperative.

GAPA will establish two crucial mechanisms for genocide prevention: (1) a Mass Atrocities Task Force to strengthen agency efforts at atrocity prevention and response and (2) a Complex Crises Fund to enable the State Department and USAID to quickly respond to emerging or unforeseen complex crises oversees, including potential atrocity crimes.

A million thanks to JWW activists for the thousands upon thousands of letters you sent, phone calls you made, and advocacy meetings with elected officials that you have participated in! We couldn’t have achieved this without your unwavering support!



The law is here I believe: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... -bill/1158

S.1158 - Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2018

This bill states that it is U.S. policy to regard the prevention of genocide and other atrocity crimes as a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility.

The President shall instruct the Department of State to establish a Mass Atrocities Task Force to strengthen State Department efforts and assist other agency efforts at atrocity prevention and response.

The Foreign Service Act of 1980 is amended to provide for the training of Foreign Service Officers in conflict and atrocity crimes prevention.

The Director of National Intelligence is encouraged to include in his or her annual testimony to Congress on threats to U.S. national security: (1) a review of countries and regions at risk of atrocity crimes; and (2) specific countries and regions at immediate risk of atrocity crimes, including most likely pathways to violence, specific risk factors, potential perpetrators, and at-risk target groups.

The bill establishes the Complex Crises Fund to enable the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development to support programs and activities to prevent or respond to emerging or unforeseen foreign challenges and complex crises overseas, including potential atrocity crimes. Fund amounts may not be expended for lethal assistance or to respond to natural disasters.

Is it any wonder who it will be that get these fat, do nothing positions and which countries, or, excuse me, which country will ultimately get most of the money involved on a yearly basis?

"Growing anti-semitism" is really just an increasing awareness of the horrific nature of Israel.
Revisionists are just the messengers, the impossibility of the "Holocaust" narrative is the message.

It's got nothing to do with avoiding atrocities and genocide and everything to do with the holocaust and promoting awareness of that and the claimed suffering of jews in it and beatifying wiesel.

Slowly but surely the US walks towards a Holocaust Denial Law... just watch.

This law is passed to fight a straw man. It references the foul impossible story of the extermination of the Jews in gas chambers. It is meant to agitate - just like Trump's Wall is meant to agitate against immigrants.
