Once again, if a Muslim kills a Jew in an act of sudden jihad syndrome it is excused, apologized for, waved away. Every time a lone jihadi conducts jihad, the defense and the courts chalk it up to a bad "mental health day". Can you imagine if a Jew went out and killed a Muslim (which never happens), what the outcry would be? They'd lynch him in the streets. This is disgusting.
The Legacy of Islamic Anti-Semitism (Dr. Andrew Bostom)
A Yemeni court ruled Monday that a Muslim on trial for killing a Yemeni Jew is mentally incompetent and merely ordered him to pay a fine for the fatal shooting.
The slaying of Jewish teacher Moshe Yaish Nahari last December in Omran, north of the capital, San'a, raised fears of anti-Semitic attacks across the country.
Monday's ruling said the defendant - Abdel Aziz Yehia Hamoud al-Abdi, a retired pilot in the Yemeni air force - is "mentally unstable." It ordered him to pay a fine of 50.5 million riyals, or about $250,000.
Lawyer Khaled al-Anisi representing the slain teacher says the court showed "prejudice" and warned the light ruling opened doors to attacks that could lead to the eviction of the Jewish community from Yemen.
Nahari, 39, was gunned down in the northern town of Riydah.
A Yemeni Web site, newsyemen.net, quoted the local police chief, Ahmed Yahya al-Suraihi, as saying at the time that Abdi, 40, had confessed to the murder, saying he had killed Nahari "for the sake of Allah."
The police chief was quoted as saying that Abdi told police he had sent a message to the Jews who live in the area that they must either embrace Islam, leave the country or be killed.
Prior to his murder, Nahari had previously received threats from Al-Houthi rebels, a Shi'ite minority that has been fighting government forces since 2004.
This is the Muslim tactic in their quest to annihilate Jews. This insanity plea in Jew (and infidel) killing is globally made possible by the tacit approval of the judicial/legal systems.
