Arab Lynch Organizer Gets Off Nearly Scot-Free

A 17-year-old Jerusalem Arab was given just a two month sentence Sunday over his role in the attempted lynch murder of a Jewish man who was to be married on the evening of his attack. Asher Pinto, who was driving in the Abu Tor neighborhood on his way to the Mount of Olives cemetery, was savagely set upon by a gang of Arabs and was nearly killed before police arrived to save him.
