Islamic Movement head Sheikh Raed Salah said on Saturday that he does not regret comments Friday, he told London newspaper, Al-kuds al-Arabi. "Israel is the last [country] that can talk about incitement," he said. On Friday, Interior Security Minister Avi Dichter and Israel Police Inspector-General Moshe Karadi decided that the words spoken by Salah calling on Muslims to renew the intifada would be reviewed by Attorney General Menachem Mazuz for incitement. Salah told fellow Muslims at a massive protest north of Jerusalem's Old City that Israel had Palestinian blood "in their food and in their drinks" and that they must help bring about an "end [to Israeli] occupation."

On Monday, the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court agreed to a police request that he be barred from coming within 150 meters of the walls for 60 days following a violent protest against the Mughrabi Gate project 10 days ago.
