Don’t these people know that Obama was just trying to make their lives better using college bull-session and community organizing inspired notions?

(Daily Caller[1]) President Obama has been accused of crimes against humanity in a new complaint submitted to the International Criminal Court, based in the Hague.

Obama’s support for Egypt’s recently deposed Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated governing party forms the basis of the complaint[2] filed against him by a group of Egyptian lawyers.

“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 complaint, which was reported on by Egypt’s El Watan[3] newspaper. (snip)

“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,” wrote Egyptian-American writer Raymond Ibrahim[4].

On one hand, Obama is getting the Bush treatment. On the other, did Bush ever offer support of a regime that was completely brutal and engaged in terrorizing and controlling a population? One could make a case for this regarding Pakistani leader Gen. Pervez Musharraf, or perhaps Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzi. Neither was exactly a Boy Scout. Yet, were they committing “crimes against humanity” like Morsi and his ilk?

The complaint notes that Obama was an accomplice to what the Muslim Brotherhood did. Raymond Ibrahim, from above link, notes

..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[5]), with a highlight on the role the Brotherhood played in inciting violence and the killing of peaceful protesters around Itthadiya Palace back in December.

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[6]. In the Sinai, a young Coptic priest was shot dead[7] 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[8].

He notes religious persecution and apartheid, as well as many other crimes included under the Statute of the ICC. Make sure to read the whole thing.

On one hand, this is entirely correct. On the other, most US presidents and 1st world leaders, now and past, could probably be charged under these terms as accessories to the charges. Either way, Obama’s Nobel Prize is looking a bit tarnished.
