Jerusalem Palestinians Protest Anti-Islam Film, Cartoonsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
About 500 Palestinians on Saturday staged what banners proclaimed a "Festival of the followers of Mohammed" in east Jerusalem in protest against French cartoons and a U.S.-made film offensive to Islam.
"We are all faithful to Mohammed" and "Mohammed the Prophet of Islam," read the banners, brandished alongside flags of Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement and the rival Islamist Hamas, in the city's Issawiya neighborhood, an Agence France Presse journalist said.
Police did not intervene in the rally, which included a marching band, he added.
French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday published cartoons portraying Mohammed naked, further fueling earlier protests over the U.S.-made film "Innocence of Muslims" which have raged since September 11, leaving dozens dead worldwide.
