The arraignment of Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, was postponed Sunday by a Jerusalem court for a month and a half.

Salah is facing assault charges after an incident last month in which he scuffled with Jerusalem police officers outside the site of a contentious salvage excavation near the Temple Mount.
