Jerusalem District Police arrested a notorious Palestinian Islamic preacher of hate at his residence in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Sheikh Khaled al-Mughrabi, an infamous hatemonger, was arrested Wednesday morning at his home in the Old City of Jerusalem on charges of incitement.

A preacher at the Al-Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount, he is known for Nazi-like, anti-Semitic sermons, many of which have been recorded by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

For example, “The Children of Israel will all be exterminated, the Anti-Christ will be killed and the Muslims will live in comfort for a long time,” he stated.

His allegations include blood libels, such as that Jews drink blood like vampires in order to attain eternal life.

His messages reach well beyond the mosque audience, as they are shared on social media.

Palestinian and Muslim preachers use the Al-Aksa pulpit regularly to promote anti-Semitism and hatred of America and to incite terror. The practice is common in the Palestinian Authority, PMW stresses. In June, for instance, the watchdog published a clip from a PA TV children’s program that presented Jews as “barbaric monkeys…the most evil among creations.”
