Mixed Bag for 'Al-Aqsa in Danger' Rally in Umm Al-Fahm

Tens of thousands are expected for the 17th annual "Al-Aqsa is in Danger" rally, scheduled for Friday in the northern Israeli Arab city of Umm Al-Fahm. This year's gathering will stress the connection of protecting Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque and liberating it from the Jewish government with protecting the honor of the prophet Muhammad, against the background of the American "Innocence of Muslims" video and caricatures in a French satire magazine.

Islamic leaders are also expected to devote time in their addresses to support of Syrian rebels and analyses of revolutions in the Arab world.
