Court delays jail sentence of Islamic Movement leader

Hadash MK Yousef Jabareen told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday he holds out hope the Supreme Court will overturn the jail sentence of Raed Salah, the leader of the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement.

Salah’s 11-month jail sentence was suspended by Justice Salim Jubran on Wednesday, pending the outcome of his appeal.

Salah wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday that the current violence is the “third intifada,” which he also termed “the Jerusalem intifada.”In this intifada (uprising), so far there have been 83 “martyrs” and 1,248 injured, and it continues, he said.
