Sheikh Raed Salah is back in Israel, and making trouble. The rabble
rousing sheikh from Umm El Fahm took part Thursday in a march
protesting Israel´s victory in the 1948 Independence War, and the
fact that Arabs lost some territory as a result of their defeat.
Several thousands of people reportedly took part in the march in the
Galilee, including Knesset Members Ahmed Tibi and Jamal Zahalka.
Salah spent about ten months in Britain before returning to Israel
just ten days ago. Some of his time in Britain was spent in jail,
after he successfully entered the country despite being banned from
doing so. He was released from jail when it was found he had entered
legally but had to obey a curfew and was not permitted to speak in
public for the rest of his stay in Britain.
The marchers held PLO flags and black flags, as well as signs with
the names of Arab villages that were abandoned in 1948. MK Zahalka
said: "Independence Day is our Nakba [disaster]." (IsraelNationalNews
