Obama Accused of Crimes Against Humanity at International Criminal Court
Posted By Raymond Ibrahim On November 8, 2013 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 3 Comments
According to Egyptian newspaper El Watan, a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint charging U.S. president Barrack Hussein Obama with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.
The complaint charges Obama of being an accessory to the Muslim Brotherhood, which incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after the June 30 Revolution.
Along with Obama, the complaint reproduced by El Watan mentions several Brotherhood members by name, beginning with the leader of the organization Muhammad Badie, and other top ranking leaders such as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi, adding that Obama cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from 3/7/2013-8/18/2013, in the Arab Republic of Egypt.
According to the published text, the complaint begins by quoting Article 7/1 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, titled Crimes against humanity, which is reproduced below:
Crimes against humanity
1. For the purpose of this Statute, “crime against humanity” means any of the following
acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against
any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
(d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population;
(e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;
(g) Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced
sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;
(h) Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial,
national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender as defined in paragraph 3, or other
grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international
law, in connection with any act referred to in this paragraph or any crime
within the jurisdiction of the Court;
(i) Enforced disappearance of persons;
(j) The crime of apartheid;
(k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.
Next, the complaint shows how Muslim Brotherhood leadership violated some of the above definitions, for example, by torturing, mutilating, raping, and killing Egyptians in their sit in camps (first reported here), with a highlight on the role the Brotherhood played in inciting violence and the killing of peaceful protesters around Itthadiya Palace back in December.
Above and beyond the accusations of crimes against humanity that the lawyer-drafted complaint cited by El Watan levels against the Brotherhood, one need only look to the fate of Egypts Christian minority, who were especially targeted by the Muslim Brotherhoodand thus, by extension, their supporter, Obamato see numerous examples of nearly every aforementioned definition of crimes against humanity, as follows:
Religious Persecution and Apartheid (see h and j)
Right after Morsi was ousted, the Muslim Brotherhood, including its supreme leader, Muhammad Badie, and its spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, as well as several of the other Brotherhood members mentioned in the complaint, publicly scapegoated the Christian minority for daring to support the popular June 30 Revolution (that is, for acting like equal citizens as opposed to cowed dhimmis as required by Islamic law). The aftermath of the atrocities committed against the Copts are well known (to those who do not exclusively rely on the so-called mainstream media), and include the torching, destroying, and plundering of at some 85 churches, some of which were ancient. Islams back flag was raised above some churches; anti-Christian graffiti littered the sides of other churches and Coptic homes.
Murder and Extermination (see a and b)
Among many others to be murdered in response to Brotherhood-incitement against the Copts, a ten-year-old girl was shot and killed while walking back from Bible class. In the Sinai, a young Coptic priest was shot dead in front of his church, while the body of another Copt was found mutilated and beheaded. Four other Christians were slaughtered by Muslims in Luxor province. Most recently, a church wedding was attacked, leaving, among others, two girls, aged eight and twelve, dead and riddled with bullets.
As for extermination, the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters have long been threatening the Copts with annihilation if they ever opposed them. Back in December 2012, Safwat Hegazi (a leading Brotherhood member named in the complaint, publicly declared during a Brotherhood rally:
A message to the church of Egypt, from an Egyptian Muslim: I tell the churchby Allah, and again, by Allahif you conspire and unite with the remnants [opposition] to bring Morsi down, that will be another matter [screams of "Allah Akbar!" followed by chants of "With our soul, with our blood, we give to you, O Islam!"] [T]here are red linesand our red line is the legitimacy of Dr. Muhammad Morsi. Whoever splashes water on it, we will splash blood on him [followed by more wild shouts of "Allah Akbar!"]
Around the same time, and more to the point, Dr. Wagdi Ghoneimanother vocal Brotherhood agitator who earlier praised Allah for the death of the late Coptic Pope Shenouda, cursing him to hell and damnation in a video he posted on YouTubemade another video telling Egypts Christians:
You are playing with fire in Egypt, I swear, the first people to be burned by the fire are you [Copts]. The day Egyptiansand I dont even mean the Muslim Brotherhood or Salafis, regular Egyptiansfeel that you are against them, you will be wiped off the face of the earth. Im warning you now: do not play with fire! What do you thinkthat America will protect you? Lets be very clear, America will not protect you. If so, it would have protected the Christians of Iraq when they were being butchered!
Ghoneims words have proven prophetican indicator that this Egyptian hatemongering sheikh, who was expelled under Hosni Mubarak, knows the conduct of Americas leadership better than most Americans. Along with Iraqs and Egypts Christians, he could have mentioned the Christians of Syria as well, who are being decimated thanks to Obamas support for al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists, AKA, freedom fighters.
Deportation, Extortion, Kidnapping, and General Abuse of Copts (see c, d, e, f, g, and i)
Since the Muslim Brotherhood publicly denounced the Copts, entire towns and villages have been emptied of Christiansfor example, more than 100 Christian families from El Arish. After mentioning the mass destruction of churches during a recent conference, and speaking of a different incident, Dr. Sherif Doss, an Egyptian activist, said, But worst of all, about 140 families were evicted from their own homes; and worse still is that, not only were they thrown out of their houses, but their shops and properties were robbed and destroyed General Sisi has promised to rebuild the churches and this takes time to be done. But we cant wait all that time for those people destitute and in the streets, with no place to live and nowhere to work . These people are in a very bad condition. If you go and see these villages, you will be amazedit is as if a nuclear bomb exploded there. People burned and plundered their homes without mercy.
Similarly, Muslim Brotherhood supporters are extorting Copts, rationalized in the context of making them pay jizyathe money, or tribute, that conquered non-Muslims historically had to pay to their Islamic overlords with willing submission and while feeling themselves subdued to safeguard their existence, as indicated in Koran 9:29. For instance, the roughly 15,000 Christian Copts of Dalga village in south Minya province were recently forced to pay jizya. In some cases, those not able to pay were attacked, their wives and children beaten and/or kidnapped. As a result, some 40 Christian families had fled Dalga, joining the ever growing list of displaced Christians in the Middle East.
Days before the June 30 Revolution, letters addressed to the Copts threatened them not to join the protests against Morsi, otherwise their businesses, cars, homes, schools, and churches might catch firewhich of course they all did. The message concluded by saying If you are not worried about any of these, then worry about your children and your homes.
Such threats, as mentioned, were hardly limited to anonymous letters. During a TV interview, Sheikh Essam Abdulamek, a then member of parliaments Shura Council, warned Egypts Christians against participating in the June 30 Revolution against Morsi, threatening them by saying Do not sacrifice your children since general Muslim opinion will not be silent about the ousting of the president [Morsi].
And the children of Copts have certainly been targetedboth during and after Morsis tenure. Some, especially young girls, are regularly abducted, raped, and shamed into converting to Islam and marrying their rapists. Coptic boys have increasingly been abducted from the doorsteps of their churches and held for ransom. Recently, a 6-year-old Christian boy was murdered by his kidnapperafter the boys family paid the ransom. (Read more about the jihad on Egypts Christian children.)
In short, by simply focusing on the plight of Egypts Christians, almost every criterion found under the category of crimes against humanityincluding murder, extermination, deportation, torture, rape, disappearance, apartheid and religious persecutionare met.
Only one is necessary for the charge to stick.
As for the Obama administrations support for the Brotherhood, if most Americans are clueless or indifferent about it, average Egyptians have long known and resented ithence the many large placards and signs held during the June 30 Revolution calling on Obama to stop supporting terrorism and calling on Americans to wake up.
One need only follow the words and deeds of Anne Patterson, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Hillary Clinton, et. al. to know that the U.S president is a firm supporter of the crimes-against-humanity-committing Muslim Brotherhood.
Of course, whatever the merits of El Watans reporthere is another English-language article talking about apparently a different complaint of crimes against humanity leveled against Obama by Coptic activistsall these complaints seem futile, as the U.S. is not a signatory to the International Criminal Court.
However, all technicalities aside, the facts are clear: by any definition, the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters have committed numerous crimes against humanity in Egypt, especially in the context of the Christian Copts; and by its ongoing support for the Brotherhood, the Obama administration is complicit. Remember this next time the Obama administration cites concerns about human rights violations as reason to involve the U.S. in waras it recently tried to do in Syria, again, to support more Islamic terrorists who are committing even worse crimes against humanity.
I hope this succeeds.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Isn’t this the clown they gave a Noble “peace prize” to?
I would be extremely wary of presenting ANYTHING to the “International Criminal Court”, as their definitions of what is criminal and what is not is suspect at best. In any event, the deck is stacked against most non-socialist governments. Regardless of WHAT form of governance the regime now reigning over the territory once known as “the United States of America” may be, the denizens of that geographic region are automatically guilty one and all.
They sense weakness, and there is already blood in the water.
Terrorism, try his health care plan.
Oh, yes! We can only hope more countries get on the wagon with Egypt and that Americans finally have to gall to file the impeachment actions.
He is SUCH an evil, evil man...
Get rid of the root and the tree will die.
You beat me to it!
The torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi was a war crime.
Agree with your post, as well supporting the ICC is legitimizing their existance, authority, and the Leftist goal of a World order.
Which tree is Barry in.

His own. The Fairies are livin’ in their trees, means their heads.
It’s from my youth of the fifties when it was common to say about some nutcase that he’s “out of his tree”.
This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
It would be neat to see his MB membership papers. Maybe he even gave them ID-papers?
No need for papers. All he had to do was recite the koran in ‘perfect arabic’.
