After Israeli ministers called for his indictment on Tuesday morning, a defiant Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, said that he and his supporters "would pay any price to defend the Aksa [Mosque]" in Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported.
Salah called on all Israeli Arabs and residents of east Jerusalem to immediately make their way to the Old City and "shield the mosque with their bodies."
In response to accusations of inciting Arab violence in Jerusalem in recent days, Salah stated that if forced by the Israeli government to choose between imprisonment and defending the mosque "and occupied Jerusalem," he would choose the former without hesitation.
