Judge watch

To his horror, Frit learns that, this week, five criminal defendants in Britain who were charged with breaking into an arms factory and destroying property valued at some $285,000 were found by a jury to be innocent of all charges. They were found innocent despite the fact that all five admitted to having committed the crime, because they said they did it to stop the factory providing arms to Israelis who would use them to commit war crimes against Palestinians. In his summing up, Judge George Bathurst-Norman suggested to the jury that “you may well think that hell on earth would not be an understatement of what the Gazans suffered in that time”.

Incensed, Frit had his people find out where Judge Bathurst-Norman lives, went to his house, broke in and trashed his collection of law books, booze and kefiyas. When he appears in court he will be pleading he did it in order to prevent Britain from sinking even further into absurdity and institutionalized anti-Semitism destined ultimately to cost the lives of many Jews, and he will expect to be found innocent.
