PRICELESS! Jewish youths arrested for Neo-Nazi attacks in Israel

A gang of Jewish teenagers were today jailed by an Israeli court for a 12-month campaign of neo-Nazi attacks.

The teens, aged 16 to 19, were sentenced to between one and seven years in prison for a "shocking and horrifying" year-long spree of attacks that focused on foreign workers, gay people, ultra-orthodox Jews and homeless men.

The charges against them included painting swastikas in a synagogue and planning a birthday party for Hitler.

They were charged with offenses including conspiracy to commit a crime, assault, racial incitement and the distribution of racist materials.
