A-G orders police investigation into Jerusalem Mufti

The attorney-general, Yehuda Weinstein, decided on Tuesday to ask police to open an investigation into anti-Jewish remarks made by Jerusalem Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein.
On Tuesday afternoon, deputy state attorney Shai Nitzan sent a letter to the police asking them to investigate the Mufti on suspicions of racism and incitement to violence.
The Mufti made the remarks during a conference in Ramallah to mark 47 years since the founding of the Fatah movement, when he cited a hadith (written recordings of sayings and deeds attributed to Islamic prophet Mohammed) that calls for the killing of Jews.
