    Islam is an Arabic word derived from the Semitic three-letter root -s-l-m - as the Hebrew word for peace, shalom, often used as a greeting.

Courts can make case law only as cases are brought to them-courts don’t get to pick litigants and their problems, and so courts’ agendas are driven by others (the litigants). Legislative bodies, on the other hand, get to pick from a wide range of issues-then set their own agendas.
