You can’t make this stuff up, and in today’s over-lawyered culture you don’t have to:

Israel is being named as one of the defendants in a new lawsuit over the wrongful execution of Jesus filed at the International Court of Justice in The Hague (ICJ).

Prominent Kenyan lawyer Dola Indidis argues that the evidence provided by the Bible demonstrates that Jesus was subjected to “selective and malicious prosecution” that “violated his human rights through judicial misconduct.”

The lawsuit targets Roman Emperor Tiberius, Pontius Pilate, King Herod, numerous first century Jewish elders, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel.

Calling witnesses may prove the most difficult part of the trial.

The problem with this suit is that for many Christians the crucifixion was ordained. It was the very reason for Christ being sent to this world -- to take on the burden of humanity's sin, and through His suffering, redeem him.

And since Christ was God, the crucifixion was an intentional act; at most the accused aided a suicide, but given the reported absence of a corpse in the tomb and claims he's returning any day now...

Let's just say Dola Indidis is prominent in Kenya for a reason...

Furthermore, while the Jewish priests may have condemned Him, and the Romans executed Him, He would never have been sent if all mankind were not sinners in need of redemption.

The fact Indidis blames anyone but himself for the crucifixion implies he lacks standing to sue.

"Prominent Kenyan lawyer Dola Indidis"

You know, if you go back far enough in time, I bet I could prove that one of his ancestors killed one of my ancestors. So maybe I should sue him.

Just a note: The Herod being referenced is not the Herod the Great who was king of Judea from 37 BCE to 4 BCE. The Herod referenced was tetrarch of the northern part of what was Judea (so he ruled in the Galilee). Judea proper (the area around Jerusalem) was governed by the High Priests.

Um, shouldn't he be suing Italy? The area we know as Israel was under the control of the Roman Empire at the time. Plenty of evidence for that too.
