    Zionists and good Muslims

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that Judgments and curses in the Old Testament are not laws, but it is a curse for those that maketh the blind to wander out of the right way, but it is a curse for those that smiteth their neighbour secretly and it is a curse for those that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that if you embrace all of the Old Testament you embrace all of the Sharia law.

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that if you embrace all of the Sharia law you embrace all of the Old Testament.
