Obama Accused of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ at International Criminal Court


dealAccording 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:

Article 7

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:

(a) Murder;

(b) Extermination;

(c) Enslavement;

(d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population;

(e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;

(f) Torture;

(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 Egypt’s Christian minority, who were especially targeted by the Muslim Brotherhood—and thus, by extension, their supporter, Obama—to 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.  Islam’s 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 church—by Allah, and again, by Allah—if 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 lines—and 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 Ghoneim—another vocal Brotherhood agitator who earlier praised Allah for the death of the late Coptic Pope Shenoudacursing him to hell and damnation in a video he posted on YouTube—made another video telling Egypt’s Christians:

You are playing with fire in Egypt, I swear, the first people to be burned by the fire are you [Copts].” … The day Egyptians—and I don’t even mean the Muslim Brotherhood or Salafis, regular Egyptians—feel that you are against them, you will be wiped off the face of the earth. I’m warning you now: do not play with fire!… What do you think—that America will protect you? Let’s be very clear, America will not protect you. If so, it would have protected the Christians of Iraq when they were being butchered!

Ghoneim’s words have proven prophetic—an indicator that this Egyptian hatemongering sheikh, who was expelled under Hosni Mubarak, knows the conduct of America’s leadership better than most Americans.  Along with Iraq’s and Egypt’s Christians, he could have mentioned the Christians of Syria as well, who are being decimated thanks to Obama’s 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 Christians—for 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 can’t 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 amazed—it 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 jizya—the 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 fire”—which 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 parliament’s Shura Council, warned Egypt’s 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 targeted—both during and after Morsi’s 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 kidnapper—after the boy’s family paid the ransom.  (Read more about the jihad on Egypt’s Christian children.)

——

In short, by simply focusing on the plight of Egypt’s Christians, almost every criterion found under the category of “crimes against humanity”—including murder, extermination, deportation, torture, rape, disappearance, apartheid and religious persecution—are met.

Only one is necessary for the charge to stick.

As for the Obama administration’s support for the Brotherhood, if most Americans are clueless or indifferent about it, average Egyptians have long known and resented it—hence 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 Watan’s report—here is another English-language article talking about apparently a different complaint of crimes against humanity leveled against Obama by Coptic activists—all 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 war—as it recently tried to do in Syria, again, to support more Islamic terrorists who are committing even worse crimes against humanity.

    Propagandizing for the arabs now, huh? The Tea Party’s just eating this up. They love ANYTHING that makes Obama look bad. Never mind that the Bush administration is afraid to leave the country because they might be arrested and taken to The Hague for war crimes in Iraq.

    • Roger Monk

      They just went to Africa this past summer….hmmmmm
      no arrest.

    • motherofbeaver

      What has he done to make him look good?

  • BagLady

    Unless Obama ordered a gang of hothead Salafi youths to jump on motorbikes and do a drive-by shooting while hurling a few molotov cocktails, I hardly think the President of the USA is going to quake in his shoes at a threat from a bunch of Egyptian lawyers with an agenda.

    • Mindy Robinson

      What President? There is not a US president.

  • dougjmiller

    Yes, Obama gave the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization the license to kill. And kill they did. Hopefully, Obama will get more than a slap on the wrist from the International Criminal Court. He deserves, at least, to spend the rest of his life in the slammer.

    • Calvinius

      You deserve to spend the rest of your life in an insane asylum. Obama didn’t “give” the Muslim Brotherhood anything at all.

      • Fenderman52

        I hope they hang collaborators like you right next to the criminal Obummer administration.

        • Calvinius

          Drop dead, you pathetic traitor.

          • defcon 4

            For muslimes like you, a traitor is anyone opposed to Sharia law.

          • Calvinius

            I’m not a Muslim, you pathetic idiot.

          • defcon 4

            Your evident support of islam0nazism says differently.

          • Calvinius

            “Support” that exists only in your diseased mind.

    • Fenderman52

      Don’t forget the Abrams tanks and F-16s Obummer gave them.

      • Calvinius

        The Egyptian military is the Muslim Brotherhood?

        Damn, you might just be the stupidest person on Earth.

  • Prof. L. Wessell

    “Bush accuded of crimes by Iraqi lawyers!” That would be frontpage all over the world, even in no substance were behind the accusation. But, Obama as the accused has brought forth no news accounts, not even in Fox News! Why? Purely as a newsstory, the accusation is frontpage stuff. Why the universal silence? I just do not understand.

    • Calvinius

      Really? Are you actually stupid enough to believe that? Bush being accused by Iraqis and Afghans of war crimes is a routine event that never gets any media attention.

      Also, given that Obama never played any role whatsoever in Egypt’s revolution, these “charges” don’t even rise to the level of being a farce.

      • Mindy Robinson

        I don’t believe you are that ignorant, therefore, you knowingly lie. Why?

  • Sefa

    This unbalanced judgement which emerged from chauvinist mind. I did not see any kind of mediation in this article which can come from fruitful mind, but full of hate and scapegoating the one side- unfortunate the Muslim brotherhood.

    C opts of Egypt should be safe, this is unquestionable. It is clear that every part of Egypt will be peaceful, if their peace is secured; also their Muslim country men and women should be in the same condition. I think as genuine human being their should be reconciliation- national dialog. However, spreading hate does not benefit anyone.

    Egypt is the source of knowledge in history, so messy condition does not fit for her. Now you Egyptians’ are at crossroad you should think carefully. Those who clapped for you might not be your real friends. Use your rational to understand the present and forecast the future. Every drop of blood is valuable irrespective of religion, race, ideology etc.

  • American American

    Please charge, arrest and convict all of his accomplices here in the states too. Help save our country from this tyrant.

  • http://www.MARVINFOX.com/ Marvin E. Fox

    Obama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood is pretty clear. The Administrations refusal to help the Egyptian military should be a primary indication of that support. With Obama, no matter how complicit he is in any activity, the problem is how to remove him from office. He is even better protected than Bill Clinton was. You may Remember Richard Byrd’s comment after Clinton was impeached. He said Clinton was guilty of impeachable offenses, but the Senate would not bring him too trial because the Senate had more important things to do. Party protection for Democrats is almost total.

    Can we get enough of us to turn him over to The Hague ? This is what happens when a inexperienced politician is President. Totally lost on the international stage. I hope they convict him, even in absentia. He sure as hell deserves it.

  • Fenderman52

    Where are the American Christian Churches in all of this? Why are they silent? Since the MSM is worthless, the truth must be told from the pulpit.

    • defcon 4

      Most Christians I’ve met are amoral. They don’t give a FFF that muslimes are slaughtering and persecuting Christians (or anyone else for that matter) worldwide. They call the sour, sweet. They call evil good.

  • Pat Enery

    Good luck prosecuting & convicting him. The puppetmasters agenda is not yet finished. He’s a great mouthpiece. Very convincing to the sheeple.

  • Adam Evenson

    Phantom, you appear locked into the “two” party system, which is actually just one party with two heads. Talk about a “big picture,” you need to look at that one. Obama takes his orders from the same PTB that Bush and every president, except the few that have been assassinated, including JFK, have done on the road to where the U.S. is right now. I suppose you believe all presidents are elected “fair and square,” right? If so, you need to study the nature of the human being, then study politics somewhere other than at “Politics College,” presented to you by The New York Times and CNN.
    Your question, “Why didn’t they prevent the first 9/11 if they could do that?” doesn’t make sense. Why would the same criminals WANT to prevent 9-11 when they intended to commit it?
    That they (the 9-11 criminals) are incompetent, as you allege, is plain. Just look at 9-11 itself. 19 Muslim-Arab hijackers pulled off the entire thing with a handful of razor blades, which included dropping three skyscrapers into their own footprints as if by expert demolition? And then made a 757 disappear after hitting the Pentagon? Oh, really? Were the Muslim-Arab razor blade toting “criminals” also running NorthCom’s Operation Vigilant Guardian at just that same moment in time as the events of 9-11? How convenient, eh?
    You’re the one that needs to wake up, and while you’re at it, smell the roses. They are particularly pungent and “in yo’ face,” virtually acrid, in fact. How are you not puking?

    • DB1954

      Adam’s a “9-11 Truther.” He has absolutely zero credibility with me. Truthers are often trolls, plants, or agents provocateur. They spin all kind of conspiracy theories on the flimsiest of pretenses. Van Jones is a “9-11 truther” too, in addition to being a self-declared communist revolutionary. Beware the Prophets who claim that EVERYONE in the Congress and the government is an enemy of the people of this country. The “truthers” are wolves in sheep’s clothing, and more likely than not, they’re part of the Obama plan for communist dictatorship. They seek to divide, alienate, and then conquer. They sew lies and mistrust among everyone.

      • Adam Evenson

        Hey, DB1954, my DB is 1940. Thanks for telling me what I am. I wouldn’t have known. You must be a magician/wizard/Prognosticator Extraordinaire, as I don’t entirely know what I am and I’m standing right here with this thing. It’s crawling all over me all the time and one would think I’d firmly know by now, however, I surely don’t know. But you suppose you know after reading a few words I wrote. Ha, ha, ha. You must be a special wizard to know as much about me as you imply.
        If I knew exactly who I AM, (hint, hint, wink, wink), it might make me oscillate all the way from God Almighty to human excreta. Ugghhhh! That would be a BIIIIIG jump! So, don’t make me go to THE TOP, please. I’m having a pretty good time right here.
        All I know about you is that you named yourself “DB1954,” and came at me with some serious inanity (or insanity?) That you are inane or insane is all I know about you.
        If being a “9-11 truther” means I’m not a typical moronic plodder, plunderer, sogger, and slogger, such as yourself, one that obviously lacks the power of foresight and reason and needs a mummy/da-da to tell him what he is looking at even though he be a grown man born in 1954 and should be able to make up his own mind from the evidence, then you told it right. I am so smart that I don’t care what kind of name you (or anybody) attach to any particular thing in the vain hope of giving it lesser credibility and somehow thinking to shame me into your “fold.” You can’t use any names, with deliberately and maliciously manufactured bad connotations, against me, as they are meaningless and possess no life or vibrancy that could rise even to the level of the stink of my stool that may have just plopped onto the ground behind me in my wake.
        As for “not having credibility with you,” would you mind elucidating why I should care? Ha, ha, ha. Do typical moronic plodders, plunderers, soggers, and sloggers actually know what credibility is? You need a “mummy/da-da” authority figure to tell you what you are looking at, which exists in plain sight for all the world to simply glance at and see. How could you possess any knowledge about credibility? Ha, ha, ha. I don’t need any mummy/da-da now, you know. I shucked that aside way back when I stood on my own two feet as a toddler. The instant I stood on my feet, on my own, I said, “Hey, folks, I can do my own walking now. Which means I’ll do my own deciding, too. I’ll be The Decider. You can teach me all you want about what you want, but I see with my own eyes and brain, not yours.” Yep, I was just a toddler when I took the helm of this thing. It means I’ve been at the helm since about 1944, maybe ’43. So, you go ahead and let mummy/da-da (a.k.a., gubby-gub) tell you that giant airliners totally vanish into thin air upon impact with buildings on the earth, and I’ll keep on saying to your gubby-gub that I do my own thinking according to the evidence, and I say they don’t. My rules of evidence are stricter than any court of law I know anything about. I realize a slogger/sogger such as yourself can’t even rise to the height of realizing the meaning of evidence, much less having strict personal rules governing it, but who knows, perhaps you could evolve another hundred million years or so and then we could talk again, as you might possess a rudimentary mental grasp by that time.

        • DB1954

          I didn’t read much of what you’ve written here after you concluded that I was born in 1954. I have no idea what you’re even talking about anyway since you used terms I’ve never heard. You don’t know that 1954 is my year of birth, and you know nothing else about me either. You’ve made more than enough ignorant statements to convince me that you’re either an anti-American 9-11 “truther” like Van Jones, the communist, or you’re a demented old man, verbally masturbating by throwing out meaningless and childish insults. Perhaps you are both. You have no idea what you’re talking about in any case. That’s clear to everyone here.

          • Adam Evenson

            Does this mean we’re not still friends?

    I agree with most of your comments, but it might be possible that if and when civil insurrection starts, not even the top military officers will obey orders to shoot civilians. I’m not saying they won’t; I’m saying that it’s possible. You have to understand the legal complexity of the military in this country. That includes every soldiers’ right and duty to disobey what he or she knows to be an unlawful order.

    By financing our enemies, by forcing Obamacare upon us, and by doing a host of other criminal activities, Obama HAS DECLARED WAR UPON AMERICANS…. and it is well long past time that we Americans declare war back upon Obama, his administration, upon Holder, Pelosi, Feinstein, Kerry and all the others inluding the democrats and congress who are so against us. We must move forward with FORCE – using weapons if need be. Voting has not and will not work. Petitioning has not and will not work. Mass marches has not and will not work. They don’t fear those kind of things. They do fear for their lives tho, providing we give them reason for that fear. It is long past that time….. and action speaks louder than words.

    There has never been any doubt by informed Americans that Obama is a Muslim and a card carrying member of The Muslim Brotherhood. He is dedicated to and has been working actively from his position in the White House to destroy all infidels particularly the Christians whom he hates and despises the most. We must hand him over to the Egyptians immediately for criminal trial and hopefully he will be convicted and executed for the war criminal he is.

    Blah, blah, blah. Another American President and/or Vice President and/or SECSTAT and/or SECDEF faces an imaginary indictment in an imaginary court for imaginary charges. In addition when Obama turns himself in, the White Rabbit will read the charges, the Queen of Hearts will preside and the Mad Hatter will serve as jury forman.
    Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Clinton (both of them) have had the same nonsensical “charges” as well as many others. Who would take this seriously? The US Senate never has or ever will ratify this insanity. I doubt even Sen Sanders would consider this–and he’s an American hating Socalist!
