Sheikh Raed Salah Gets 8 Months for Incitement to Violence

Islamic Movement leader jailed for 2007 Jerusalem speech in which he urged third intifada; "Blessed is God, I got off cheap," he says after sentence.

Leader of the Islamic Movement's Northern Branch Sheikh Raed Salah was sentenced to eight months in prison on Tuesday for a 2007 speech in which he incited to violence.

Salah, who also received eight months probation, seemed please with the sentence, telling reporters after the hearing, "Blessed is God, I got off cheap."

Judge Miriam Lump wrote in the decision that in Salah's speech "he repeated the words 'blood' and 'martyrs' which can lead to violence and there is a serious potential for explosiveness."

Salah was convicted in November 2013 for a sermon he gave at Jerusalem's Wadi Joz neighborhood in 2007. In the speech, Salah urged supporters to start a third intifada in order to "save al-Aksa Mosque, free Jerusalem and end the occupation." Salah's speech also attacked Jews, saying, "They want to build their temple at a time when our blood is on their clothes, on their doorsteps, in their food and in their drinks. Our blood has passed from one 'general terrorist' to another 'general terrorist.'" He also said, "We are not those who ate bread dipped in children's blood."
