Amal Clooney appeared before the United Nations this week, sounding for all the world like President Donald Trump. Clooney, a human rights lawyer and the wife of actor George Cloney, was there to talk ISIS and the failure of the U.N. to have effectively dealt with the subject. Unlike many in Hollywood who seem to think criticizing radical Islamic terrorism is somehow racist, Islamophobic and bad, Amal Clooney pulled no punches when it came to criticizing ISIS.
Amal is a human rights lawyer who is simply doing her job. She is representing victims of ISIS rapes and kidnappings. Not criticizing the U.N. for their indifference to ISIS or their weak efforts on justice would be incredibly lazy and even dishonest on her part. “I am speaking to you, the Iraqi government, and to you, U.N. member states, when I ask: Why? Why has nothing been done?” she said, dramatically adding, “Don’t let ISIS get away with genocide.” Amal, goes on to express subtle optimism regarding Trump’s willingness to fight ISIS.
“The president-elect has said that fighting ISIS is actually a priority,” she said. “So it may be that there can be progress, and obviously everyone has to respect the outcome of the democratic process here, and we have to hope for the best.” Her husband, George, told the press he was ‘proud’ of her ‘very important’ work against ISIS.
It would be terrific if she, as a different voice on the subject, is able to reach more people.
