4While the Security Cabinet has outlawed the Northern Branch of the Israel Islamic Association for its terror-related activities, thousands of residents of the Israeli Arab municipality of Um el-Fahm marched in support of the outlawed organization on Shabbos, 16 Kislev. They hurled stones and bottles at police.

During the event, Northern Branch Leader Sheikh Raid Salah announced the decision to outlaw his organization “is racist”. Participants in the march shouted “With blood and spirit we will redeem al-Aqsa”, with Salah adding he and his supporters will remain undeterred in face of the Security Cabinet decision and will continue their efforts to liberate al-Aqsa Mosque and end the Israeli occupation.

Taking part in the march was Arab Member of Knesset Jamal Zahalka.

  1. I just don’t understand. Imagine if a senator marches in a kkk march. And this mk is marching in support of an illegal organization. These things are tolerated?? What’s going on in that messed up government?

  2. Finally, after countless terror attacks against Jews in Israel the Israeli Arab population is taking to the streets to protest. Not against the terror and their Knesset Members for supporting the terror openly, but to show support for one of the most wicked and anti-Semitic organizations (and only the Northern Branch has been banned). Salah himself has called for attacks against Jews and claimed that Jews use the blood of non-Jews for their Passover festival. When will people wake up and realize that the Arabs citizens of Israel are so much more dangerous than the Palestinians? When will Jews wake up and stop using Arab labor and shopping in venues which hire Arabs? Rav Chaim Kanievsky’s psak forbidding hiring Arabs didn’t seem to change anything, but I hope a reality check will.
