    Christian and Muslim are large groups of religions. They don't always agree with each other within the group and have shown a great willingness over time to kill each other over doctrine. Judaism is culturally significant to the West, but it is a tiny religion, far smaller than Hinduism or Buddhism that have been ignored.

    If I were setting up such a court, I would pick a Sikh, a Zoroastrian, and a Bahai. All would be familiar with the major religions because they are related in some way, but none would have a stake in the game.

    Single payer universal healthcare coverage saves money and saves lives.

      but you have a good idea in taking the people of the book that have been causing all the trouble out of the decision making loop.

      What happens the first time the hindu's or buddhists or zoroastrians  find it necessary to criticise Israel and move UN troops into its territory as peacekeepers should be interesting...
