Johannes Pinnel, an anti-Zionist spokesman for the regional court in Wuppertal outlined the decision in a statement.
Three German Palestinians [read: Muslims who are taught in their scripture to hate Jews] sought to torch the Wuppertal synagogue with Molotov cocktails in July, 2014. The local Wuppertal court panel said in its 2015 decision that the three men wanted to draw "attention to the Gaza conflict" with Israel. The court deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism. Israel launched Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014 to stop Hamas rocket attacks into Israeli territory.Had Israel allowed Hamas to rein rockets on schools and civilian population that would have been acceptable to the three German Muslims and the synagogue would not have been torched.
But the real kicker was that the court sentenced the three scumbags: 31-year-old Mohamad E., 26-year-old Ismail A. and 20-year-old Mohammad A. to suspended sentences!
The court said the three POS men consumed alcohol and there were no injuries to any German Jews.
After the court decision in 2015, Volker Beck, a Green Party MP, said the "attack on the synagogue was motivated by antisemitism" and blasted the decision that the goal of the attack was to highlight the war in Gaza.
"This is a mistaken decision as far as the motives of the perpetrators are concerned," Beck said, adding that the burning of a synagogue in Germany because of the Middle East conflict can only be attributed to antisemitism.
"What do Jews in Germany have to do with the Middle East conflict? Every bit as much as Christians, non-religious people or Muslims in Germany, namely, absolutely nothing. The ignorance of the judiciary toward anti-Semitism is for many Jews in Germany especially alarming," Beck said.
