Court sen­tences cleric for call to kill Jews

The Myanmar Times - - World -

An Is­raeli court sen­tenced a Pales­tinian Is­lamic preacher to eight months in prison over a ser­mon at a volatile Jerusalem holy site in which he called for Jews to be killed. The Jerusalem mag­is­trates’ court had in March found Sheikh Omar Abu Sara, 51, guilty of in­cite­ment to vi­o­lence and racism in a ser­mon he de­liv­ered at the Al-Aqsa mosque com­pound. Abu Sara said “the Jews” were treach­er­ous, stub­born, mur­der­ous, rude and shame­less, while also call­ing them “mon­keys and pigs”.
