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.

Yes, it is a big “so what”.

Any criminal who wants to escape the penalties of their actions could “reject” the legal jurisdiction for any number of reasons.

She tried and she lost.

We have similar cases here in America.
White supremacists, black racists, religious separatists, etc.

Actually Torah Law is rather unique in that it treats Jews more strictly than non-Jews as it recognized all 613 commandments placed upon Jews and only the seven Noahic Laws as applying to non-Jews. Also, in the Torah it says, and I am paraphrasing here, Treat the foreigner as you treat your own. Many of our current fair treatment for all under the law are derived from Jewish Law.
