    Since I am a JEW I would prefer to go to a rabbinic (halakhic) court in a criminal case against me. Not only would they be reluctant to execute me (the opinion of 70 years is only by R. Eleazar ben Azaria; there are other opinions on both sides of 70), but the court will not even be able to convict me, with the requirements of Witnesses and Warning (Edim v'Atraah). The halakhic law-enforcement system is extremely deficient (because it was not designed with real world input). However, if I were a Gentile, I will never go to such a court because they will execute me with no problem. I suggest you READ what respected rabbis wrote about killing Arabs, and HEAR what R. Ovadia says, and UNDERSTAND where pre-medieval mindsets lead. For this you will need to really THINK by yourself, what you were taught in Yeshivah wouldn't help here.
