Judge Erez Porat from the Haifa district court on Monday rejected an appeal submitted by Islamic activist Raed Salah to be released from his incarceration.
Salah, formally the head of the Northern Islamic Movement in Israel, was arrested in August for allegedly supporting terrorism. Judge Porat said that Salah “repeats his blood-filled speeches within a tense and potentially explosive social situation… revealing that he is a public menace.”
The August arrest of Salah was based on his Facebook posts, in which he called for acts of violence and applauded acts of terrorism such as the July 23 Temple Mount attack.
