A 19-year-old Russian man was sentenced to five days in jail yesterday for an attack on a synagogue in the southern city of Rostov-[na]-Don[u], the second such incident in Russia in the past week.
So, a little quiz:
What is most frightening about this incident?
A. A young man in Moscow attacks people in a shul with a knife, and another young man in Rostov sees this in TV and thinks "Yo, fun, I'll do the same."
B. He gets only five days in jail for what is actually attempted multiple murder.
C. Five days in a Russian jail might easily correspond to US capital punishment,
D. ... though maybe not for a patriotic Jewhater.
E. He was sentenced the morning after the incident.
