JNS.org – The leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Raed Salah, had his appeal rejected in a Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday and will now serve an 11-month prison sentence for incitement.

The fiery Arab leader attempted to appeal a conviction for a speech he gave in 2007.

“In spirit and blood we will defend Al-Aqsa,” Salah shouted during a court appearance two weeks ago, the Jerusalem Post reported.
