Sheikh Salah Raed, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, was questioned by police on Sunday over allegations of incitement to violence for recent remarks he made calling for a new intifada against the Jewish State, police said. The three-hour long interrogation of Salah came 10 days after a Jerusalem court ordered the radical leader out of the city for violating a previous court order following a series of run-ins he had with police over a contested archeological excavation underway near the Temple Mount. Salah, an Israeli citizen who heads the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, called on Muslims to launch a new intifada over the archeological dig.
