The Antisemitic preacher from the Al-Aqsa Mosque who incited the murder of Jews is going to jail for 11 months because of Palestinian Media Watch's documentation. Last year, PMW reported on Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi's Antisemitic statements and handed over the recordings and translations as evidence to Israeli police. Twice, PMW's reports led to Al-Mughrabi's arrest, which has now resulted in the 11-month sentence.

Al-Mughrabi has been teaching Islam twice a week at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, posting his lessons on YouTube. In these lessons, he has taught that the Jews will eventually be exterminated by Muslims, explaining that it is Allah's wish that Muslims/Palestinians bring this about:

"Allah can annihilate all the Jews down to the last one, throughout the world. But, what does Allah want? He wants us to fulfill His command."

Al-Mughrabi has also taught that Jews make matzah bread from children's blood, sacrifice human beings to Satan, and that Jews symbolize the Devil and worship him.

The Jerusalem District Court convicted Al-Mughrabi "for fomenting racist and religious hatred against Jews so as to spur attacks against them," Israeli Arutz Sheva reported. [March 14, 2016]
Israeli TV Channel 1 reported on PMW's instrumental role in the police's arrest of the Sheikh.
The following are PMW's reports on Al-Mughrabi's Antisemitic teachings and hate incitement:
