Police arrest head of Islamic Movement’s northern branch

Posted in Miscellaneous by beyondtheborder on March 23, 2009

A spokesman for the northern branch of the Islamic Movement called the arrest “unacceptable,” adding that “Salah’s detention was made as part of the process of strengthening [Jewish control] of Jerusalem.”

“No one broke the law here,” he continued. “There was simply an intention of forming a popular committee for dealing with all matters relating to the Palestinian Culture Festival, meant to declare the city ‘the capital of Arabic culture for 2009.'”
