Let him preach in Gaza

Raed SalahRaed Salah again:

Speaking at a rally celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the northern branch of Israel’s Islamic Movement, called for thousands of Muslims to rise, unite and defend Jerusalem and al-Aksa mosque.

At the event, which took place in Kafr Kanna on Friday night, Salah said that “even if Israel [banished] him to the moon, the Islamic movement will continue to chant – in blood and spirit we will redeem al-Aksa. — Jerusalem Post

This man is an Israeli citizen. No country in the world would allow this kind of incitement — yes, you might hear something like this in Berkeley, but only because the speakers are not taken seriously. Many Arabs take Salah very seriously. He is not only shouting ‘Fire’ in a theater, he is lighting matches.

To allow Salah to continue with his activity is an affront to Israeli self-respect. Israel should call his bluff, strip him of his citizenship and expel him. Let him preach in Gaza.

  1. Shalom Freedman says:

    The time has come for Israel to put an end to its policy of tolerating incitement to violence and rebellion by various Arab political and religious figures. As Rosenthal rightly points out this behavior would not be tolerated in any other democracy. Israel has by allowing Arab Knesset Members to go so far as to collude with Israel’s enemies ( without indictment) encouraged such treasonous behavior.
    Enough is enough.
    A democracy has to defend its own people against those who would destroy it and them.
