The International Criminal Court Tightens Its Hold

Peace Through Justice -
which is an attempt to bring world peace 
and accelerate the return of the Jewish Messiah.

The formulation of a body of moral principles to govern mankind is currently the objective of a worldwide, multicultural and religio-political network that is working diligently to hasten mankind's return to the Natural Law.  This many-faceted movement is demanding that entire nations submit to a set of principles variously termed the Noahide Laws, the Moral Law, Natural Law, Universal Law, etc. 

Such a movement would normally not concern Christians, who are required under most circumstances to obey the laws of those in governmental authority. However, this movement is not working exclusively outside the pale of Christianity, but has  infiltrated and is using the Christian Church to establish its global governing apparatus. [1] It is called the International Criminal Court (ICC), and the Obama Administration has stated its intent to cooperate with the ICC, by cooperating and supporting all of the ICCs investigations and prosecutions.[2]

Wikipedia states that
"The ICC is a permanent international criminal court, founded in 2002 by the Rome Statute to "bring to justice the perpetrators of the worst crimes known to humankind - war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide", especially when national courts are unable or unwilling to do so. As of September 2011, 116 states are members of the court and 139 countries have signed but not ratified the Rome Statute. Other countries that have not signed or ratified the Rome Statute include India, Indonesia, and China. On May 6, 2002, the United States, in a position shared with Israel and Sudan, signed the Rome Statute but formally withdrew its intent of ratification.

Positions in the United States concerning the ICC vary widely. The Clinton Administration signed the Rome Statute in 2000, but did not submit it for Senate ratification. The Bush Administration, the US administration at the time of the ICC's founding, stated that it would not join the ICC. The Obama Administration has subsequently re-established a working relationship with the court."
Noahide Organization at the UN
Two Chabad-run Noahide organizations [sects of Orthodox Judaism] 7for70 [7 Laws for 70 Nations], have received official recognition from the United Nations, and are authorized to work in the UN. 7 for 70 is a national organization in the United States which encourages the practice of the Seven Laws of Noah, according to the teachings of Rabbi M. M. Schneerson, who believed himself to be Messiah. [3] Their first official visit to the UN included participation in selecting the new judges for the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Rabbi Cohen asked the judges if the plan on judging with the fear of heaven, thus fulfilling one of the Seven Noahide laws.

Recent Developments
(Washington Post) The next chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court pledged Tuesday to strengthen efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of sexual and gender crimes.

A day after her election by the 119 countries that support the tribunal, Gambian lawyer Fatou Bensouda said too often gender crimes go unreported and unpunished and the victims are trivialized, denigrated, threatened and silenced, which enables the abuses to continue unimpeded. In its first cases, she said, the ICC has sent the message that this is no longer acceptable and must stop. (Read article)
