Thousands of Israeli Arabs convened in Umm el-Fahm Friday for a rally, held under the banner "Al-Aqsa is in Danger," organized by the Islamic Movement in Israel's northern branch in opposition to the radical Islamic State group.

Israel Radio cited the leader of the Islamic Movement's hardline northern branch, Sheikh  Raed Salah, as stating that his position was set against the extremist Islamic group that has conquered parts of Syria and Iraq and aims to remap the Middle East.

However, Salah added that he opposed the coalition led by US President Barack Obama pledging to take military action against Islamic State fighters, saying it threatened the Arab world.
