Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel landed at Ben-Gurion Airport on Monday evening after a nearly year-long stay in the UK, where he won a lengthy battle against the British government who tried to deport him.

Salah entered Britain in June, despite being banned from the country. He spoke at a number of anti-Israel events before being arrested on June 29. Last week Salah won an appeal against the British government with a tribunal deeming his incarceration "entirely unnecessary."
