Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

You, of above the average, are qualified to make the judgment whether or not the Russian regime is conduction genocide against the Ukrainian people. I believe, even though you are not a Lawyer, or a legal expert on international law, know enough about the crime of genocide.

Genocide was recognized as a crime in the immediate after the aftermath of World War II.

It is appears obvious, from current events, that the ideology military of Russia aim is to wipe out Russian identity.

If you agree that genocide is currently taking place against the Ukrainian people, how is it that no one, if anyone. is raising this issue?

And what about the term Apartheid? It's used against the Jews in Israel involving Palestinians. Aren't the Russians practicing Apartheid against Ukrainians everywhere?

Daniel Pipes replies:

It sure looks like genocide to me. I don't think it's apartheid, however.
