Tens of thousands of Israeli-Arabs congregated in the city of Umm el-Fahm in the Wadi Ara area of Israel on Friday for a rally entitled "Al-Aksa is in Danger," referring to the iconic mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The rally was sponsored by the northern branch of the Islamic Movement.

Activists at the rally held Palestinian and Turkish flags, while numerous speakers at the event praised the Israel-Hamas deal to release more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, including six Israeli-Arabs, in exchange for Gilad Schalit.
