Nahum (Nachum) Korman

Note: this biography may be incomplete or out of date. Extension/update suggestions are welcome.

Nahum Korman, who chased, kicked and, with the butt of his gun, clubbed to death a 12-year-old Palestinian boy, Hilmi Shawasheh, on 27 October 1996, was sentenced in January 2001 to six months of community service. This followed a complex legal process that included the Supreme Court, lower courts and plea-bargaining. B'Tselem , an Israeli human-rights group, condemned the sentence as giving "a message that Palestinian lives are cheap". It accuses the legal authorities of "an undeclared policy of absolution, compromise and mitigation for Israeli civilians who attack Palestinians."
