PMW reports lead to second arrest of Antisemitic preacher from the Al-Aqsa ‎Mosque

Israeli TV 1 newsreader: “The inciting preacher from the Temple Mount has been ‎arrested. Last week, we reported that Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi incites freely. And on ‎this topic, here is the report by Dana Ben Shimon.”‎ Sheikh Al-Mughrabi: “It is not incitement at all.”‎ Israeli TV 1 reporter: “So [said] Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi, the preacher from Al-‎Aqsa, this evening in court.”‎ Sheikh Al-Mughrabi: “We are Muslims, we have a right to say: ‘Allah said, Muhammad ‎said.’ Everything that comes from the Quran is part of our faith, what we believe.”‎ Israeli TV 1 reporter: “Last night, he was arrested in his home in the Old City [of ‎Jerusalem] as a result of sermons he has given at the Temple Mount that incite against ‎Israel and the Jews. It reached its peak during the last religious lesson he gave at the ‎Al-Aqsa Mosque.” ‎ Tag: PMW video exposing the Sheikh’s Antisemitic teachings Sheikh Al-Mughrabi: “Allah can, in the blink of an eye, ‘‘He only says, ‘Be,’ and it is’’ ‎‎(Quran), Allah can annihilate all the Jews, down to the last one, throughout the world. ‎However, what does Allah want? He wants us to fulfill His command.”‎ Israeli TV 1 reporter: “This wild incitement was already exposed several months ago ‎by the research institute Palestinian Media Watch. The organization Honenu submitted ‎a complaint to the police, and as a result, the Sheikh was arrested this August and ‎banned from the Temple Mount for 30 days. At the end of the investigation, the police ‎even recommended indicting him, but the state attorney said the matter was still being ‎examined. However, in the meantime it turns out that the Sheikh continued. No ‎measures were taken against him, and no limitations were imposed on him, and he ‎continued inciting. Here is a reminder of what we showed last week:”‎ Sheikh Al-Mughrabi: “[At the End of Days] we will follow the Jews everywhere. They ‎will not escape us. They will not be able to escape us. The Children of Israel will all be ‎exterminated, the Anti-Christ will be killed and the Muslims will live in comfort for a long ‎time.”‎ Israeli TV 1 reporter: “The arrest of the Sheikh will be extended until tomorrow [Nov. 5, ‎‎2015]. Al-Mughrabi is almost certainly not the only Sheikh preaching hatred at the ‎Temple Mount. The question is whether this arrest will lead to arrests of other ‎preachers.”‎
