About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Islamic Sharia and Jewish Halakha Arbitration Courts

The American Muslim (TAM)
According to a Agudath Israel of America press release entitled ANTI-JEWISH BIAS IN THE U.S. DEFENSE DEPARTMENT? “The AIA takes sides on many political, religious, and social issues, primarily guided by its Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah. It uses these stances to advise its members, to lobby politicians, and to file amicus briefs.”

U.S. courts sometimes recognize the arbitration of Jewish religious courts and sometimes do not.

All in all, it would seem that faith based arbitration is an existing part of our legal system, and that considering sharia as somehow less acceptable than halakha has no basis in anything other than prejudice and stereotyping.
