Sheikhs set up Muslim guard units for holy sites

Haaretz - Israel News - Sheikhs set up Muslim guard units for holy sites: "Attacks on mosques could lead to an Israeli Arab revolt, the Islamic Movement's northern branch leader, Sheikh Raed Salah, said on Friday during a rally at the Hassan Bek Mosque in southern Tel Aviv, one week after a pig's head was thrown into the mosque.

Speaking at a press conference following the rally, the sheikh also announced that the Islamic Movement will set up guard units to secure Muslim holy sites in Jaffa, Ramleh and Lod.

Earlier, a prayer service was held at the mosque, during which mosque officials screened a security video showing two Israelis throwing the pig's head into the mosque courtyard last week."
