t: "in other country she would have gone for 5 years!!!! " That all depends on the definition of "attempted murder", doesn't it. In the case of Jihad Abu-Turki it means "approaching a checkpoint with a knife in a bag" which in most other countries is "carrying a concealed weapon" but is not, in itself, "attempted murder". Because, of course, in *most* countries you have to actually "attempt the murder" before you are charged with "attempted murder". Not in Israel, apparently..... http://israelitybites.blogspot.com/2009/06/palestinian-kids-in-israeli-jails.html
