Thousands of Israeli Arab followers of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement participated in a protest rally on Saturday against the death sentence handed down by an Egyptian court against the deposed president Mohammed Morsi.

The event, which took place in the village of Kafr Kana, featured speeches by Islamic Movement leader Sheikh Raed Salah and his deputy, Kamal Khatib.Protesters waved Muslim Brotherhood flags as well as those of the Islamic Movement and the Palestine Liberation Organization. Some participants waved placards featuring the image of Morsi, the Islamist leader who was removed from power by the Egyptian military.

“This great demonstration is aimed at demonstrating the conscience of the free Palestinian nation,” Salah said. “It is this same conscience that opposes the Israeli injustices and will not stand opposed to injustices from wherever they may come.”
