Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi - teaches Islam at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem twice a week. Palestinian Media Watch has exposed that his teachings are blatantly Antisemitic. In August, PMW reports led to his arrest and questioning by Israeli Police, who banned him from the Temple Mount for a month. On Nov. 4, 2015, the Sheikh was arrested a second time, again because of PMW's documentation of his most recent Islam lessons, which PMW provided to the police.
