Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi has ordered a criminal investigation against the head of the northern arm of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Raed Salah, for alleged incitement and sedition, Israel Radio reported Sunday afternoon. According to the report, Salah, who was banned from Jerusalem's Old City on Wednesday after scuffling with police over the excavations near the Temple Mount, repeatedly called on Islamic Movement members to come to Jerusalem and guard the Al Aksa Mosque bodily. During a rally on Friday in Nazareth, Salah warned the Israeli government of fierce retaliation if the Temple Mount mosque were harmed during the archaeological dig. "You are playing with fire, and whoever plays with fire will ultimately get burned," he said.
