      Long prison terms in fires
      A rabbi speaks to the brothers who admitted torching three
      synagogues.

      In a courtroom charged with the emotions of victimized congregation
      members, Matthew Williams and Tyler Williams were sentenced Friday to
      federal prison for torching three Sacramento synagogues and an
      abortion clinic.
      The white supremacist brothers, who still face capital homicide
      charges in Shasta County, pleaded guilty nearly three months ago,
      admitting they had burned the synagogues simply because they were
      Jewish houses of worship.
