Kenyan Lawyer suing Israel for death of Jesus.
International Court of Justice
This is simply as ludicrous as it sounds but…
A Kenyan lawyer has filed a petition with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, suggesting that the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ was unlawful, and The State of Israel among others should be held responsible, Kenyan news outlet the Nairobian reported on Friday.
Dola Indidis, a lawyer and former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary is reportedly attempting to sue Tiberius (Emperor of Rome 42 BC-37AD), Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel.
“Evidence today is on record in the bible, and you cannot discredit the bible,” Indidis told Kenyan Citizen News.
Yes, those he suggests should have been convicted during the original trial have not been alive for more than 2000 years, however Indidis insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible.

Mr. Indidis has a point. Israel was under the rule of the Roman Empire at the time of Christ. It is the law used/misused to condemn Christ that Mr. Indidis seeks to clarify.
If it is all right in the United States to put the founding fathers on trial for their participation in slavery–the rule of law during their lifetimes–and view their actions through a lens of post-modernism and condemn them; if it is all right to put the Constitution of the United States on trial and view it through lenses of racism, feminism and secular humanism and condemn certain aspects of it; if it is all right to put the Bible on trial in the United States and Europe and determine through a secular humanistic/atheistic lens that all Christians, Jews and Muslims who believe in the Bible are homophobic; then it is appropriate to also use historical documents and the rule of law to question the illegal murder of an innocent man who is an extremely important historical figure throughout the world and has been for 2,000 years, and request the World Court to put the Roman Empire in its role as Secular Humanists on trial.
Perhaps Egypt should be put on trial too to explain its enslavement of the Jews and offer them compensation.
Maybe Great Britain should be put on trial for the massacre of the Irish for 800 years and the genocide in potato famine of the 1800s. Perhaps Great Britain could offer to pay off the Irish debt to the European Union as compensation for their crimes against humanity and Irish Catholics.
Well where shall we stop when we start suing each other for past deeds and misdeeds? Speaking of which the Bible does say that we all will stand at the BIGGEST court room …before God one day on that great day when He will judge both big and small rich and poor. Each of us will give an account of our lives.
