The attempted murder by arson of dozens of men, women and children will bring an estimated sentence of only 6 months of community service. Is it open season on African refugees in Benjamin Netanyahu's quasi-democratic Israeli state?
OUTRAGE: Man Who Firebombed Occupied African Refugee Kindergarten And Homes To Get No Jail Time

An outraged Israeli human rights lawyer has reportedly demanded that Israel’s Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein void a plea deal prosecutors made with a Tel Aviv man originally indicted for throwing firebombs eight months ago into the back porch of an occupied kindergarten-daycare center and into four separate occupied homes, all belonging to African refugees in south Tel Aviv.
The attacks were hate crimes directed specifically against African refugees.
Damage to property was severe, but even though the attacks were committed late at night and the occupants – including many children in the kindergarten-daycare center were sleeping – no one was killed or injured in the fires.
The questionable deal was made with 21-year-old Haim Moula, who pleaded guilty to serving as accomplice to the crimes he himself committed – even though no perpetrator has been named, arrested, or is apparently even being sought by police.
Prosecutors allegedly offered Moula the deal without consulting many of the victims.
The amended indictment against Moula removed the charges involving two of the firebombed homes and the kindergarten – apparently the locations where the most number of people, especially children, were sleeping when Moula attacked.
Moula is reportedly now expected to be sentenced to serve only six months of community service without any prison time.
Attorney Gabi Lasky petitioned Weinstein Wednesday, alleging Moula’s victim’s rights were violated by prosecutors.
"Victims of severe violence have the right to express their position on plea bargains reached with the accused before a decision is made on the matter. In this case, the very existence of the plea bargain was not brought to the attention of the victims of the crime, and they only learned of its existence via media reports,” Lasky wrote.
