Islamist Leader Attacks Pope for Visiting 'Muslim' Western Wall


Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the radical Islamic Movement in Israel, wrote an open letter to Pope Francis last Thursday, criticizing him for his visit to the Western Wall (Kotel) two weeks ago, and further claiming that the site is Muslim. In the letter, which was posted on the Arabic site Al-Sonara, Monday, Salah condemns the pope for placing a note in the Kotel.
