Kenyan lawyer takes State of Israel, Jews to Hague over Jesus' death

Jerusalem Post is reporting the following. It is not a spoof edition of the paper (Like in the US when some papers do an April Fool's edition) and the JPost is a credible newspaper. Therefore this is not a satirical piece, but is in fact real.

Kenyan lawyer takes State of Israel, Jews to Hague over Jesus' death
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. “I filed the case because it’s my duty to uphold the dignity of Jesus and I have gone to the ICJ to seek justice for the man from Nazareth,” Indidis told the Nairobian. “His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office bias and prejudice.” ... When asked about the case, a spokesperson from the IJC told legal news website Legal Cheek, "The ICJ has no jurisdiction for such a case. The ICJ settles disputes between states. It is not even theoretically possible for us to consider this case."

Full story at link. It is an unusual story. I don't know how to respond to this

Kenyan lawyer on quixotic quest to nullify trial of Jesus
"The conviction of Jesus by Pontius Pilate may be the most famous court verdict ever — and perhaps the most consequential, since it led to Christ’s crucifixion and the founding of a global religion. Dola Indidis, a Roman Catholic, is petitioning the International Court  of Justice, based at The Hague, to nullify Jesus’ conviction and death sentence. Now a Kenyan lawyer wants to overturn Pilate’s decision, though he wants to keep the faith that flowed from it. ...  Indidis first brought his case before the Kenyan High Court in Nairobi in 2007, but the court refused to hear it, saying it lacked jurisdiction. Now he is turning to the International Court of Justice, often referred to as the World Court, which is best known for ruling on territorial disputes between members of the United Nations."

Ah! Catholic... please remember that Catholicism is a false religion and the Spirit is not in them. Therefore they would have a darkened mind and no understanding of His word or His ways. Well anyway, (Ephesians 4:17-18).

  1. Maybe this:

    1 Cor 2
    8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory

    Christ HAD to die for our sins. The trial HAD to be unlawful, because the innocent (just) had to die for the guilty (unjust). Though He laid down His life willingly, with full authority. Nullifying the crucifixion would leave us all to die in our sins.

    Indidis is one confused fellow... Father forgive him for he knows not what he is doing.

    3. On 1st thought an individual could see the truth of what happened and have some understanding as to why Indidis (Lawyer) feels the way he dose.

      But if you continue in that frame of mind you would be using your flesh to rule your decisions and not your Spirit. Yeshua while hanging there was in the Spirit of Ya Elohim the creator. This is why He said to forgive. If our Heavenly Father forgave the Jewish people and still continues to forgive all people. Then who are any of us to carry hatred and un-forgiveness in our hearts.

      I believe we should all join our faith together as a cord a pray for Indidis (Lawyer). Remember Yeshua said when 2 or more come to together in His name He is in our midst and tri-cord is not easily broken.

      Father, I pray in Yeshuas name for Indidis of Kenyan, I ask and thank you for bringing your Spirit to his heart, I pray Indidis will receive your fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22 love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.

      Father, I ask that you give us all deep revelation of Mark 11:22-25

      “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[f] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

      We thank you that Your Will is being done in our lives, Your forgiveness, and strength. We thank you for being our protector, and provider throughout our lives as we rely on you. Thank you Father that our prayer is being answered in Indidis and in ourselves, for we believe your word does not return void and shall be accomplished this day. Praise be to Ya, in Yeshua's name we pray amen.

    4. Dear Anonymous:
      Thank you that your reply to Indidis and in essence, all of us, is full of grace, mercy and overflowing with the "fruit of the Spirit". Even so Lord, please come...

  2. I think Satan loves these kind of stories as it results in news fodder to paint Christians as backwards and ridiculous.

    Seeking justice over Jesus's crucifixion is silly as it was predestined and with purpose. We are called to change our ways from shame of guilt, not use it as an excuse to perpetuate the cycle of hatred.

  3. I think the whole thing is a publicity stunt. Some people do anything for media attention; they want their 15 minutes of fame.

  4. I instantly thought "Roman Catholic" when I read that he was trying to hold the Jews responsible. Roman Catholics would undo the crucifixion if they could. The difference between RC's and Protestants is that the latter recognize that Jesus HAD to die, and therefore respond by extending the mercy and grace of the Gospel to the Jews (a la Joel Rosenberg), realizing that we ourselves are the reason His death was necessary, and therefore do not hold any special animus over the Jews, unlike the Roman religion.

  5. Guess the learned lawyer missed the part of scripture where Jesus said:

    "No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded." John 10

    Jesus was God.!!!!. NO ONE could take His life unless He Himself allowed it. How sad that this man and his religion are so deceived along with millions of others.

  6. David Nerubucha said-

    The Book of Zechariah 12:10 explicitly states that "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son”.
    The momentous petition by Dola Indidis at the ICJ in the Hague is envisaged to bring the Jews and the State of Israel to the realization that Jesus of Nazareth was innocently killed.
