Court says Sheikh Nazem Abu Salim Scapa's fiery sermons encouraged two terror cells to attack non-Muslims
Nazem Abu Salim Scapa, an imam from Nazareth, was convicted Sunday on charges of incitement to violence and terror and supporting terror organizations.
The Nazareth Magistrates' Court said Scapa's Friday sermons at the Shihab al-Din mosque in the city inspired two terror cells to attack Jews and Christians. One of the gangs has also been charged with murdering cab driver Efim Weinstein in 2009.
Scapa, 47, has served as the imam of the Shihab al-Din mosque for the past 15 years, but he delivered sermons in other mosques as well including the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem's Old City. He was arrested in November 2010.
