why not forbrytelser mot menneskehet?

In English, it's not "the humanity" (unless you see a burning zeppelin). However, the cases in which articles can be omitted differ from language to language, and I think "menneskehet" would sound as wrong to a native Norwegian as "the humanity" sounds to you native English speakers.

Now here I thought I should translate mot-à-mot and wrote "Crimes against THE humanity," but apparently it's unacceptable :)
