Home · Blog · Blog : Egyptian lawyers accuse Obama of crimes against humanity

On Thursday, CBN said that lawyers in Egypt filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court charging President Obama with crimes against humanity, citing the Egyptian news outlet El Watan.

The charges also allege Obama is an accessory to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that has spread violence in Egypt before and after the June 30 coup.

Along with Obama, El Watan mentions several members of the Muslim Brotherhood by name, Raymond Ibrahim said, beginning with Muhammad Badie, the leader of the organization, and other top ranking individuals like Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi.

The complaint says 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 Ibrahim, the complaint cites Article 7/1 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, which he reproduced at CBN.

The complaint then explains how the Muslim Brotherhood violated the statute.

The English translation of El Watan then says Obama “teamed up” with leaders of the Brotherhood and assisted by providing “firearms and cartridges.”

Ibrahim added:

“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…”

He goes on to explain that the Brotherhood engaged in religious persecution against Christians, murdered and threaten to exterminate Christians in Egypt, engaged in mass destruction of churches and mass deportation of Christians.

Coptic Christians, he said, were also forced to pay a “jizya” tax, which he described as “the money, or tribute, that conquered non-Muslims historically had to pay to their Islamic overlords” to ensure their continued existence.

During and after Morsi’s tenure in Egypt, he added, children of Christians have been targeted, with young girls “regularly abducted, raped, and shamed into converting to Islam and ‘marrying’ their rapists.”

Boys have also been abducted and held for ransom.

“In short,” Ibrahim said, “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.”

And, he added, only one is necessary for the charge to stick.

Ibrahim said that one only has to look at the “words and deeds of Anne Patterson, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Hillary Clinton” and others, to understand that Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood.

Another article, he said, talks of another complaint against Obama that was apparently leveled by Coptic activists.

The complaints, he said, are futile as the United States is not a signatory to the ICC.

Nevertheless, Ibrahim said, the Obama administration is complicit in the crimes committed against Coptic Christians due to its ongoing support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

“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,” he said.
