Five years? Five years for plotting to bomb a synagogue in the cause of Islamic Jew-hatred? That is stunning.
How silly of the Jerusalem Post to call the jihadi a "Moroccan." His nationality is as relevant as his sock color. This devout Muslim has lived in Italy since early childhood.

ROME - A 22-year-old Moroccan man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for planning terrorist attacks on Milan’s main synagogue and Jewish school.
The five year and four month sentence against Mohamed Jarmoune was handed down by a court in Brescia on Thursday.
Italian media said the sentence was more than the four years asked by the public prosecutor. Jarmoune, who has lived in Italy since childhood, was arrested in Brescia in March 2012.
Investigators found documents on his computer analyzing the security measures of Milan’s main synagogue. He was also suspected of planning attacks and organizing terrorist groups through internet social network sites.
