A Frankfurt state court has sentenced a 23-year-old German Muslim to 3 1/2 years in prison for attacking a rabbi with a knife. On Tuesday, the court found Sajed Aziz guilty of serious bodily injury for the September attack on orthodox Jewish rabbi Zalman Gurevitch. That was a more lenient charge than the original attempted manslaughter, after prosecutors said there was not enough evidence that Aziz intended to kill 43-year-old Gurevitch. A German citizen born of Afghan parents, Aziz has denied all along that the attack had an anti-Semitic motive or that he had intended to kill the rabbi. The attack prompted concern and condemnation from local politicians and Jewish groups.
