Thousands Rally for Morsi in Israel

On Temple Mount, posters of Hitler and chants against Sisi, asking – “Are you Jewish or what?”

Thousands of Arab supporters of the Islamic Movement in Israel demonstrated on Saturday in support of Egypt's ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, an AFP correspondent said.

Around 4,000 people led by preacher Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, took part in the protest in the northern city of Nazareth, the correspondent said.

The demonstrators marched holding Egyptian flags as well as pictures of Morsi and chanting against Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who led the overthrow of Morsi, claiming he was "taking orders from the US."

A police spokeswoman said the demonstration passed without event.

Pro-Morsi rallies took place on Friday in Jerusalem's Old City and in the city of Hevron, attended mostly by supporters of the Islamist Hamas movement.

Some of the participants in the Friday rallies accused Sisi of collaborating with Israel, where officials have refrained from commenting on the events in Egypt.

Thousands of Muslims gathered on the Temple Mount Friday after the noontime prayers, in a show of support for Morsi and against the military government headed by Defense Minister Abd el Fatah Sisi.

"We will sacrifice our soul and blood for Islam,” the multitudes shouted. “Egypt shall be Islamic, in spite of the secular people.”

They also chanted slogans against Sisi, in which they asked – “Are you Jewish or what?”

Signs carried by the protesters said: “Sisi is a hypocrite, a traitor, who works for the Jews.” Another poster showed photos of Hitler and Sisi side by side, in an apparent attempt to make a comparison that favored Hitler. The caption under Hitler's photo was: “I killed the Jews for my people, my flock.” The caption under Sisi's likeness said: “I murdered my people, my flock, for the Jews.”
