(Times of Israel) Arab Israeli Islamic cleric Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel which was banned in 2015 over links to terror groups, was convicted Sunday of incitement to terrorism over a 2017 speech in which he praised a deadly attack at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City. Salah was arrested for praising three Arab Israelis who shot dead two Israeli police officers in the attack. Salah has previously been convicted on a number of occasions for terror charges and in 2017 was released from prison after serving a nine-month sentence for incitement to violence.
