St Andrews Student Convicted for Racially Aggravated Attack on Jewish Student

In a widely reported case, a St Andrews student, Paul Donnachie, has been convicted in Cupar Sheriff Court of “acting in a racially aggravated manner which caused distress or alarm” to a Jewish fellow-student. One significant aspect of Sheriff Charlie McNair’s judgement was his finding that the student’s identification with Israel is part of his Jewish identity, so that to attack him on those grounds constitutes a racially aggravated offence. http://www.scojec.org/news/2011/11viii_st_andrews/st_andrews.html
