UN To Investigate 10 Plagues As Possible Crimes Against Humanity – satire

The Council has already appointed Canadian professor William Schabas to head the commission, citing his experience with similar inquiries

Geneva, April 1 – The United Nations Human Rights Council has appointed a commission to collect and analyze evidence that the ten plagues wrought against Egypt violated international law, and may constitute crimes against humanity.

Egypt submitted a request last month to the Council alleging that the release of the Israelite nation was secured under duress, and that the Israelite god had perpetrated mass atrocities in the process. As part of the negotiating strategy with the Pharaoh of the time, the Hebrew god YHWH repeatedly struck the nation with various calamities, disrupting life, agriculture, commerce, diet, and causing an unknown number of deaths and injuries. The request asked the Council to investigate, noting that although the events took place nearly 2,500 years ago, there is no statute of limitations on such crimes.

Specifically, the commission’s mandate includes a series of ten events in the year leading up to the Israelite exodus, with the addition of a mass murder allegation charging that on the way out, YHWH disproportionately smote the entire cavalry corps of the Egyptian military. The commission will also explore the evidence of two accessories to the crimes identified as Moses and Aaron, brothers who may have participated in some or all of the alleged atrocities…

    By doing this they are acknowledging the supremacy of YHWH as God.
    My God is better than your God, so suck it up.
    By the way, a blessed and peaceful prayer to all Jews on this their day of Passover.

    If only they had thought to hire a smart extreme leftist Jewish lawyer decades ago.
    Yul Brynner would have been such a compelling witness, it would have been a slam dunk.
