A court gave a two-year suspended sentence Friday to a man who admitted attacking and insulting Poland's chief rabbi on a Warsaw street earlier this year. The man was convicted of using violence and racially motivated hate speech, but was spared the maximum punishment of five years in prison, a court spokeswoman told The Associated Press. During the trial Friday, the man admitted that he provoked the incident by shouting "Poland for the Poles" at Rabbi Michael Schudrich and other Orthodox Jews, the news agency PAP reported.
