Dhimmi Justice in Germany: Stabbing Jews is no big deal
Update from this story:Â Rabbi stabbed on street in Frankfurt bank quarter
Three and a half years in prison for knife attack on rabbiÂ
A German court ruled that a Muslim man who admitted stabbing a rabbi did not intend to kill him.
* How so? He attacked him and called him a ‘Jewish Pig’- didn’t he?
Rabbi Zalman Gurevitch, who was stabbed by an Afghanistan-born man on a street in Frankfurt last September, during the trial.
The man identified as Sajed A., a German of Afghan ancestry, was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in jail by the Frankfurt District Court for the September stabbing of Rabbi Zalman Gurevitch.
Sajed, who said he was acting in self-defense, was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm. Had he been convicted of attempted murder in a bias case — as the rabbi’s attorney, Rolf Doering, had argued — Sajed could have been jailed for 15 years.
The state prosecutor had asked for a minimum of four years, while Doering had asked for five years, eight months.Â
Gurevitch, who required an emergency surgery after the stabbing, is planning to appeal the sentence based on the grievous bodily harm conviction, according to reports on the Spiegel Online magazine.
The rabbi testified that he had been on his way home from Sabbath services on Sept. 7 when Sajed shouted at him, “S— Jew, I will kill you,” and stabbed him in the stomach. Sajed later said he had been driven by fear of the rabbi, who was the larger of the two men.
Some witnesses said the two men had argued before the stabbing. Der Spiegel said this could not be verified because two Jewish witnesses who live abroad said they were afraid for their safety and would not testify.
The Frankfurt Regional Court on Tuesday morning convicted a 23-year-old German-Afghans to three years imprisonment for serious bodily injury. The accused stabbed the rabbi in September 2007 in Frankfurt.
After yelling insults at the Rabbi who was on the way to the synagogue the Afghan rammed a knife in his belly.
“German” jailed for stabbing rabbi he called a “Jewish pig”
The “German”‘s name is Sajed Aziz. What do you think? A neo-Nazi? Or maybe…just possibly…influenced byÂ Islamic antisemitism?

Alleged 9/11 “20th hijacker” tried suicide – lawyer
* unfortunately he failed…
GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba, May 20 (Reuters) – A Saudi citizen who allegedly intended to be the “20th hijacker” on Sept. 11 tried to kill himself last month at the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after learning he faced charges that could carry the death penalty, his lawyer said on Monday.
On Wednesday the court will hold a public hearing in Strasbourg to investigate the claims in a case brought against the British government.
The applicants, none of whom have British nationality, were allegedly involved in extreme Islamist terrorist groups with links to al-Qaeda, the court said in a statement.
Six of the applicants are Algerian, and the others are French, Jordanian, Moroccan and Tunisian. Another was born in a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan, and is stateless.
All eleven were detained after al-Qaeda’s 11 September, 2001 attacks in the US. They were imprisoned at various times between December 2001 and October 2003 and initially held at Belmarsh Prison in London under Britain’s 2001 Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act.
All the men were allegedly involved in Islamist terrorist groups with links to al-Qaeda such as the Salafite Group for Prayer and Combat (GSPC) formed in Algeria in 1998, the Tunisia Fighting Group.
The men are also said to be linked to a group of Algerian terrorists centred around al-Qaeda and GSPC member Abu Doha, known for his senior role in terror training camps in Afghanistan.
He was also linked to a Frankfurt-based cell accused of plotting to bomb the Strasbourg Christmas market in December, 1995.
The eleven are suspected of supplying false documents, purchasing IT equipment and helping young British Muslims travel from the UK to train for Jihad (holy war) in Afghanistan.
Three of the men were subsequently transferred to Broadmoor secure mental hospital following a deterioration in their mental health, including a suicide attempt.
Another was released on bail in April 2004 under conditions equivalent to house arrest, owing to serious concerns over his mental health.
