New Hope: Iraq Officially Declares Christmas a National Holiday

Just a few short years after ISIS swept across Iraq and committed genocide against Christians and other minority religious groups in the region, the country's government officially declared Christmas a national holiday this year. 

A declaration was made Christmas Eve to designate December 25 a national holiday for all Iraqi citizens. Previously, it was reserved for Christians only.

Recently, President Trump signed a declaration holding ISIS accountable for war crimes and genocide in the region.

President Trump signed the Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act of 2018 yesterday in the Oval Office. It was passed by the House an Senate unanimously.

According to the White House, the legislation "directs humanitarian, stabilization, and recovery assistance toward ethnic and minority individuals in Iraq and Syria, including individuals at risk of persecution or war crimes," and "directs the State Department to encourage foreign governments to identify and prosecute individuals suspected of committing crimes against humanity, crimes of genocide, or war crimes, including members of foreign terrorist organizations operating in Iraq or Syria."
