"Isn`t it amazing how similar orthodox Judaism and Islam are?" Original Christianity is also similar. "Women must dress a certain way so that they are covered and modest." Nuns have to adhere to this as well. "Men must cover their heads and not shave their beards." Priests also must adhere to this. "The same foods are banned." Not really. Alcohol is allowed in Judaism & Christianity, pork is forbidden in Judaism & Islam, Kosher food is a must in Judaism & Islam. "Women have a lesser role in the religion than men." And that's also true in Christianity, no? "The similarities are incredible." Yes they are but that's not surprizing considering that all three religions originated from the ME. Christianity has been adulterated by Western cultures that view modesty as a sin or an illegal act. Mother Mary covered her head ALL THE TIME, but Europe made this act illegal forgetting that their own nuns (an endangered species) have to cover their heads as well!
