Arab-Israelis Rally in Support of Mohammed Morsi

Rallies in support of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi were held in two Israeli-Arab towns in the Galilee.

About 250 protesters rallied Saturday night in Sakhnin and Kfar Kana, in northern Israel. “The Egyptian people have chosen Morsi and their choice must be honored,” said Sheikh Ali Abu Ria, head of the Sakhnin Islamic movement.

Morsi was deposed July 3 by the country’s military amid mounting protests against the country’s first democratically elected leader.
