Of course, there is no direct path from a particular case of genocide to the concept itself. Each one contributes differently to the fund of empirical evidence. The individual fates of minorities – the existential plight of Muslims in Pol Pot’s Cambodia; the Jews of Europe under Hitler; the Armenians in Ottoman Turkey – were all victims of totalistic intolerance. Ideologies – from the Left and Right, nationalist and internationalist – provided rationalizations for eliminating humans from the global population. In this way, the study of specific genocides and near–genocidal events contributes, piece by piece, to an ever-deepening recognition of the meaning of genocide in the context of human history.

So what side is the Genocidal side? I know Israel isn't trying Genocide and couldn't as most Palestinians are outside of Gaza, and most Muslims are outside Gaza so Israel can not be the one and I would disagree with the Palestinians doing it to for the same reason, to many Jews outside Israel.
Hamas does have genocidal thoughts towards the Jews and the Pals. Hamas kills Muslims, Christians, and Jews and they have no care for heir race or religion or culture as they use kids to blow things up, they advocate killing Rape Victims, they advocate killing and abusing women and they are on most country's Terror Watch Group List.
So I don't get your genocide post, neither side is trying to nor can they take out the other side...
This is not a geographical issue, this is not a religious issue, this is a moral issue, this is a humanitarian issue that deserves action before it continues to reach out to every nation and state on the globe! This cannot continue to be allowed any further into the 21st century.
New Delhi (DPA) - The killer tsunamis of December 26 washed away everything that people in southeastern coastal India held precious, but failed to obliterate deeply-divisive social caste lines.
This rigid, inherited social hierarchy determines which victims are entitled to relief supplies and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
The dalits or "broken people" of southern Tamil Nadu state are doubly damned. They were battered by the tidal waves, and those who survived are being denied food, water, toilet facilities and space to recover in overcrowded relief camps, aid workers said Friday.

Help Victims of Myanmar Cyclone
More than two hundred thousands civilians have been killed in Bosnia and Croatia since the beginning of the war. Tens of thousands of women were raped, some of them more than a hundred times, while their sons and husbands were beaten and tortured in concentration camps like Omarska and Manjaca. Millions lost their homes due to a process called "ethnic cleansing."

But is there another choice ? Or is all or nothing? Can something finally be brought to the table to not just identify the precursors to Cultural and Ethnic Genocide but also a real plan enacted to prevent it from tainting the 21st century in ways that leave the slaughter of the 20th century forgotten?
Is there a conspiracy to commit Global Genocide so the people cry out for a New World Order to come and save them? Does it have to happen in London or Amsterdam or New York city before the cries are heard? Have the other 20+ Nations affected by this silent terror been nothing but a rouse, a trial by fire, a trainning ground?
We have all been tested in just the past years with the denial of even the most basic of human requirements, do we even remember the names, dates or places of the enumerable events which have taken place?
You get the picture. We cannot allow this to continue into the 21st century, for any reason. There is no justification for the denial of basic human needs as a means of ethnic cleansing, nor the occupation of any peoples for land and or profit or religious differences.
