The Unrepentant

A former St. Andrew's student convicted of racially abusing an Israeli classmate has been sentenced to a fine of 300 pounds payable to the victim and 150 hours of community service. He intends to appeal, but also had this to say about the student he abused:
“Mr Reitblat was an American studying over here so he’s from a rich family – I hope he gives the compensation to a good cause and doesn’t just fund his own greed.

Going straight back to the well with the "rich greedy Jew" trope I see. Well, at least he learned a valuable lesson.

(The victim actually is planning on donating the funds to victims of terrorist attacks in Israel).
