JNS.orgPalestinians burned the French flag in protest of the new cover of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Friday.

Several hundred Palestinian protesters gathered on the Temple Mount during prayer services on to demonstrate against the magazine’s decision to publish an image of the Prophet Mohammed on its Jan. 14 cover.

In a video, the protesters can be seen waving the Hamas flag and other Islamic flags while chanting “jihad, jihad, we will die in the name of God,” “Allahu Akbar,” and “Muhammad [is] our master and leader forever” as they set fire to the French flag.
