Great prosecutions of our time

From Ha'aretz:

"A Jerusalem magistrate court ruled last week that a Hebron settler who shouted "Heil Sharon" - a reference to then-prime minister Ariel Sharon - at a police officer while making a stiff-armed Nazi salute should not be tried for insulting a public sector worker.

The magistrate judge, Hagit Mac-Kalmanovich, determined that if the settler had used the word "Nazi" or a similar word in referring to the police officers, or if the settler had uttered "Heil Hitler" or a similar statement which implied that the officers are Nazis or resemble Nazis, this would undoubtedly have constituted a crime".

Dear lord, how much more inference do Jerusalem's beaks need? Further, while the date of the salute is not given, the big man officially stood down in April 2006, so it looks as though justice in Israel is not exactly swift.
