Only a national government has the power to produce “genocide,” which is the killing of an entire race of people. And only a government, when its troops invade other nations, can attempt to destroy an entire race outside of its borders. Neither an individual nor a group of individuals can commit genocide. And, if they try, they would quickly be jailed under already well-established criminal statutes. Thus we see that only nations can commit genocide, never individuals. Only a nation can blot out a race; an individual can only kill individuals.
But now we have a new international law governing nearly every civilized nation on earth,—that is able to charge innocent citizens with “genocide” for having done something that a national government considers harmful to other religions!
On December 11, 1946, the United Nations General Assembly voted unanimously to declare genocide as a crime under international law. Nearly a year later, on December 9, 1947, the same assembly unanimously adopted what isknown as the “Genocide Treaty.”
Because of obvious omissions and inherent dangers in that treaty, the United States did not ratify that treaty for decades afterward. Finally, 40 years later, under immense political pressure from various sources, the United Sates approved it on February 19, 1988
Nearly eight months later, on
legislation which would impose extremely heavy penalties to those found guilty of violating that treaty. The Genocide
Treaty (also called the “Genocide
Convention”) was signed by President Reagan on November 11. On
And, because it is now on the statute
books of 96 different nations of earth,—the Genocide Treaty has become the
first worldwide man-made law in the history of mankind! Why was the
First: Under this recently enacted treaty, one man can be held as a genocidist for killing just one other man. Yet we all know that the killing of one man by another is in no way genocidal!
“Genocide: the deliberate and methodical
annihilation of a national or racial group” (Macmillan Dictionary), “the
systematic killing of a whole group of people or a nation” (Webster’s new
World Dictionary). “Genocide means the physical dismemberment and liquidation
of people on large scales: an attempt by those who rule to achieve the total
elimination of a subject people.”—
Second: A man can be tried and found guilty of committing “genocide,” which is the destruction of an entire race of people—without having killed anyone at all! “But the treaty definition differs substantially from that of the dictionaries. It includes such items as ‘mental harm to members of the group,’ or moving them from one place to another, or even birth control. It would not be difficult to imagine a situation at a later time in which a special class of people were hailed into court on the
charge of genocide. Their crime? having brought ‘mental harm’ to members of a certain religious organization, by their words, actions, or distribution of proscribed literature.”—The Genocide Treaty, October 1968, 5.
Third: If a man is accused of “genocide,” he
can be hailed into a
Fourth: The Genocide Treaty Itself has such vague wording that leading American jurists and attorneys have declared it to be dangerous! They tell us that all kinds of people can be accused of having violated the Genocide Treaty.
“The Genocide Convention [Genocide Treaty]” is such a vague and dangerous treaty that to cure its imperfections would require changes so substantial that they would have to be regarded as amendments requiring renegotiation of the convention by the United Nations itself].”—Charles Rice, Professor of Law, quoted in Congressional Record, February 13, 1986, S-1288.
Many of its terms are shrouded in
uncertainty.”—Senator Strom Thurmond, of
Fifth: That which makes a man’s actions to be in violation of the treaty—is the motive that others assign to those actions! “Motives” means the reason why he did it. Almost any kind of criminal action can be classified as “genocidal,” according to this treaty.
“The description of the ‘crime’ of
genocide provided by the restricted Genocide Convention is so expansive and
all-inclusive as to cover almost any wrongdoer, perpetrating almost any
criminal act of violence or advocacy of violence against almost every type of
victim.”— Robert A. Friedlander, “Should the
Sixth: Instead of being worded to stop genuine genocidists— which are the national governments and political
groups trying to kill races within their borders or outside of it,—this treaty gives no mention of nations or political
groups, but only of individuals. And the terms of the treaty are construed against, rather than in favor of, the defendant.
This is against American law. “Political genocide is nowhere mentioned in this Genocide Treaty. History relates the reason that the treaty was originally accepted by the UN members in 1948, and then signed by many of the individual nations in
later years. The nations had nothing to
fear from it, for the Genocide Treaty deals neither with governments nor with
political actions.”—The Genocide Treaty, 7. “The definitions proffered

Seventh: An individual need not kill an individual of another race, but only “mentally harm” him by his words— in order to be eligible for Genocide Treaty violation. “Genocide is mass murder perpetrated by repressive government. To say, as does article IV, that private individuals commit genocide is not only pure hyperbole but, in the context of the so-called criminality of article II, it is a loaded weapon pointed at the citizenry of any signatory state.”—Friedlander 268, 271.
Eighth: One need only do or say that which
appears harmful to the best interests of another religion in order to be brought
into court for having violated the treaty,—where he will receive a heavy
penalty. “That penalty

Eleventh: The treaty says nothing about political crimes: only individual crimes; yet genocide is being carried on by political groups and political governments all around the world, even as I write these words. “For 37 years the convention [treaty] met with considerable opposition. Various opponents were concerned that the convention would supercede the U.S. Constitution; acts against political groups were not made criminal offenses; the convention would be enforced in ways

Twelfth: This treaty was quickly signed by the
very nations that are practicing genocide on a day-by-day basis! They signed it
because its wording could not include their governments,—but could be used by
those governments in bringing accusation, imprisonment, or death to their
citizens! “A list of the
signatories of the Genocide Treaty reveals that it includes the leading
practitioners of post- World War II genocide:
Thirteenth: This treaty lacks proper wording for just handling cases in a court of law. “The various classifications of subject victim groups put forward by article II (national, ethnical, racial, religious, etc.) encompasses virtually all conceivable persons, except for those having a particular political affiliation . . No American citizen or resident alien (legal or otherwise) seems to be excluded from the sweep of this article. “As for the enumerated crimes, (a) ‘Killing of the
group,’ does not allow for any [legal] defenses; (b) ‘Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group’ does not specify the degree of mental harm or distinguish whether the injury includes psychological disorientation of a temporary nature; (c) ‘Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part’
can lead to charges raised by minority groups suffering from residential discrimination or ghetto life . . The list of possibilities for creative lawyers is practically endless.”— Friedlander, 268-269.
Fourteenth: Domestic laws—laws governing our own people—have
now been decided by foreign powers. In this treaty, governments outside the
we are letting foreigners make our laws for us, the laws that will decide which of our citizens will be imprisoned, and for what crimes”—The Genocide Treaty, 7.
Fifteenth: It is possible that those violating this
treaty can be requested by foreign powers to be shipped from the
Throughout this book, we have discovered that a primary way in which mankind seeks to destroy one another— is through religious persecution. A person speaks and lives differently than is agreeable to another’s religion,—so he is persecuted for it. This newly ratified treaty permits one man to hail another man into court on the charge of genocide violation,—for having spoken words that bring “mental harm” to another person, part of a group, or entire group. We have also seen that our free land is gradually moving toward the emplacement of a National Sunday Law that, when enacted, may at first appear to be a great blessing,— but which will rapidly bring in its train persecution of minority churches, including Sabbathkeeping churches. When religious orthodoxy becomes the law of the land, soon a narrow view of what constitutes “orthodoxy” is also legislated and enforced.
The very vagueness of this treaty is such that it can be used in many ways, quite separated from what may have been the motives of its authors or enactors. This Genocide Treaty could provide a powerful tool in enforcing the National Sunday Law—when that law is finally enacted. And because it is on the statute books of 96 different nations, a rapid international aspect has been added. The entire world will be able to quickly work together to enforce Sunday observance. The crucial part is that a worldwide standardized crime has been established, with most terrible penalties for its violation. The penalties of the Genocide Treaty could be applied at will to any individual who violated the National Sunday Law.
And, because this treaty is based on a 96-nation mutual pact, or treaty, each nation will be required by all the others to search out and bring the specified criminal into court.
Although commonly called the “Genocide Treaty,” technically, it is a “convention” and not a “treaty.” A treaty is a bilateral agreement between two nations; a “convention” is a multilateral agreement between many nations, in this case, most of those on our planet! But there is no provision for a convention in the U.S. Constitution! Because it is a convention and not a treaty, every signatory nation involved is bound to defend it, adhere to it, and be ready to persecute individuals according to its ambiguous terms, as agreed upon by the member nations. This makes this genocide convention one of the most powerful international laws in the history of mankind! Yet, no matter how the nations of earth may plan and devise, there is a God in heaven who has a rule of right: the Ten Commandments. And the time is nearing when He shall judge men according to that rule. One of the ten is the Sabbath commandment. It stands as a great memorial to the creative power of the One who made us all. And it is bulwarked by twelve great pillars of truth. Here they are, in the next chapter.
“Render therefore unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”—Matthew 22:21.
Every conceivable base is covered to make the individual Christian a prime target of any power-crazed polititan, judge, police officer, or neighborhood snitch. And STILL the scoffer believes Christian prophecy is a myth? This law is a first of it's kind. This is the first GLOBALLY ACCEPTED LAW on the books. That's right! It's a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENTAL LAW.
Now do you see why Canada has been playing games with such laws? Are you aware that as of September 2003 Canada has had on the books a LAW that allows a homosexual to have a Christian thrown behind bars for upto FIVE YEARS for merely preaching Scripture! Want the proof? Click here.
