A Global Failing on Humanity has Enabled Crimes Against Humanity

The failure of the international community to end the Syrian war during the past five years has resulted in multiple crimes against humanity being committed from Syria to Europe. This failure has also encouraged the rise of extremism in lieu of any viable alternative to governance in Syria, of which the Islamic State(IS), has been the major benefactor.

More than 250,000 people have been killed thus far in Bashar al Assad's war upon the Syrian people. More than half of the Syrian population of 22 million has been displaced. While millions of Syrians have been made refugees by the war and have sought shelter in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, another million or so have fled into Europe. Of the remaining 7.6 million Syrians internally displaced under Assad's regime, about half are children.

Children and women have been gassed to death in Syria. Children and women have been barrel-bombed to death by Assad's regime. Yet, the carnage continues out of Damascus because shiny-suited diplomats and boot-wearing troops have not mustered enough enthusiasm and political zeal to ameliorate the lives of so many people.

Meanwhile, the IS has pounced upon the failings of the international community and the Assad factor in Syria as a major recruiting tools to garner new young fighters, with a view to establishing a Caliphate in the Levant. Moreover, in lieu of any Syrian peace, crimes against humanity have been exported to France, to Lebanon, to Nigeria and elsewhere, while fear has been planted and stoked in many locations.

The Syrian humanitarian blight has confirmed that out of any event that attacks the fundamental dignity of humankind, other humanitarian tragedies will become evident. Therefore, with the Syrian war and Bashar al Assad as major offenders of the dignity of humankind and giving rise to, and spreading terror, then the time of Assad and the Syrian war must be numbered in order to prevent a perpetual exportation of terror and of violence.
