Man Puts God On Trial In Israel Court

An Israeli man has had his suit against God thrown out…but what prompted him to sue his creator in the first place?

He claims God has been unfair to him for the last three years and told magistrates in Haifa, northern Israel, that His Holiness had ‘exhibited a seriously negative attitude toward him’.

He had even reported the matter to the police but says they didn’t take it seriously even though they sent patrol cars to his house.

But the ruling judge Ahsan Canaan threw the application out describing it as ‘bizarre’ and telling the complainant to get help.

Local media reports him as saying:

‘For the past three years He started to treat me harshly and not nicely. I complained to the police many times. The Israel police asked me to take out a restraining order.’

The Haifa resident is said to have represented himself at court, but further details of his feud with the Almighty have not yet emerged.

‘Times’ of Israel report in to the absurd court case said: ‘A protocol of the hearing noted that God did not turn up for the session. But it did not specify how the court determined the Omnipresent was not in fact there, as opposed to merely exercising the right to remain silent.’
