Netanyahu Wants to Outlaw the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement

PM thinks the group should be treated like the Jewish extremist Kach movement, but Justice Ministry opposes plan.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a cabinet meeting on Sunday that the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, headed by Sheik Ra’ad Salah, should be outlawed, like the Jewish extreme right-wing movement Kach, which in 1994 was declared a terror organization, according to three sources who were present at the meeting.
