Your references to Halakha are quaint. The learned Rabbis must have been well rewarded for such important scholarship. Maybe they spent decades contemplating such lofty legal issues ? Who knows ?

By the way, jurisprudence is my specialty.

How much do you know about the Halakahic interpretations regarding sexual abuse of a child ?

Do you know what punishment is recommended in the Pentateuch for this crime ?

How many adults in the Holy Land have sexually abused a child ?

How many acts of child sexual abuse have been committed ?

How much rope would be needed to strangle the perpetrators of such acts in the Holy Land ?

What are the opinions of the Chief Rabbis of the State of Israel on this very important commandment ?

P.S. As Napoleon said, "Strategy is the art of using time and space well."

The Master of the Universe is the Grand Strategist. He will soon cast judgment on how time and space is used in the Holy Land.

I believe that stoning is the punishment set forth in the Torah for rape.
Israel does not follow Halakha. Under Israeli law, the death penalty is limited to crimes against humanity.
