“The Case Tzviya Sariel was arrested in early December on charges of having pushed an Arab man who came to harvest olives in her hometown of Elon Moreh, in the Shomron (Samaria).”

Apparently, not.
She committed battery upon another person.

I am no legal scholar, but does not her rejection of the legal juridisdiction of the court amount to a big “so what”?

Also, sounds like she wants a Jewish version of religious law vice civil law (based on I assume the Torah?) Ya think that would discriminate against a non-Jew just a Sharia discriminates against non-muslims?

I guess that would mean if it were me, I would reject American civil law & juridiction because I am a Christian, therefore only a Christian court should be able to try me?

Let us hope we never allow this concept of justice to become a precedent in the US.

Perhaps she should not have been incarcerated for this set of “crimes”, but I am not familar with Israeli juris prudence/civil rights, in the USA, I think it would not be tolerated, unless the “suspect” is declared dangerous or a flight risk by a judge....

Oh well. Shalom.

Kneejerk

Sariel was arrested in December and has been held for three months for allegedly pushing an Arab who entered her town to pick olives. Judges decided to keep her in prison without formal charges after she refused to cooperate with the secular justice system. Sariel, 18, remains in prison even after two Arab men, witnesses called by the prosecution, testified that she was not involved in the alleged physical assault.

Jabber Mahmoud Hussein, called to the stand by the Prosecution, said: "I managed to come to court twice, despite the fact that the accused didn't hit me or do anything bad to us at all...we are prepared to close this case because all we want is to harvest olives in peace."
