Germany punishes man for dressing kids as bombers

A German court yesterday sentenced a Palestinian resident of Berlin to 300 hours of community service for dressing his three children up as suicide bombers during an anti-Israel demonstration in Berlin last April. The 33-year-old, who was convicted of glorifying a crime, also got a five-month suspended jail sentence for wrapping his children in rolls of cardboard painted to look like sticks of dynamite. The costumes were lauded in the Palestinian Authority at the time, but the German public was shocked by both the implied support for suicide bombings and the man's use of his children for this purpose.
