    It is amazing that while most people living in the Western world are opposed to any type of Sharia Court system on their soil, President Reuven Rivlin and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked recently entertained the newly elected judges of the Sharia Courts in Israel.
    Sharia Courts in Israel you say!
    Whoever heard of this?

    The link below is from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
    So while the Muslim world in general despises Jews and agitates that they be killed and while Muslims are killing Jews in Israel at every opportunity in the name of Islam, the smiling Rivlin welcomes Muslim Sharia Court judges! What if decisions handed down by the Sharia Court differ markedly with the standards of the Israeli judicial system?

    To those with the knee jerk reflex motion to defend every Israeli decision no matter what, ask yourselves – would you want a Sharia Court in your street? The hell you would.
