Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Wednesday that Muhammad Musallam, an Israeli Arab accused by Islamic State of having signed up as a jihadi to spy for Mossad, had no ties to the Mossad nor any other Israeli security ties.

Ya'alon also told Israel Radio that extremist Islam is a crime for the Middle East and threatens its stability.

A gruesome video posted online Tuesday by Islamic State militants on Tuesday showed a boy killing Musallam with a bullet to the head.
