Israeli Arabs Rally In Favor of Egypt's Morsi

Ad Feedback

Some Israeli Arabs rallied on behalf of Egypt's ousted president Mohammed Morsi over the weekend in Nazareth, the boyhood home of Jesus and the largest Christian Arab town in Israel.

Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, rallied 2,000 protesters to in support of Morsi. Salah has been jailed in Israel in the past for his support of Hamas.

Salah fired up the crowd with accusations that Israel and the United States were behind the Islamist president's ouster, calling on Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood to "cross the borders…liberate Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa mosque (on the Temple Mount) from Israeli occupation," Israel Hayom reported.

Salah's deputy, Sheikh Kamal Khatib, vowed the protests would continue until Morsi is reinstated, promising to continue to oppose the Egyptian military "as long as Egyptian blood flows."

They weren't the only Islamists rallying behind the ousted Muslim Brotherhood president.

According to a Press TV report, there were demonstrations in Indonesia, Turkey, Malaysia, Pakistan, Yemen, Jordan, the Gaza Strip and even New York City, where Morsi supporters rallied in front of Egypt's mission to the United Nations.
