Dozens of masked Muslim youths and children clashed with security forces and reporters in east Jerusalem's Wadi Joz on Friday afternoon, throwing rocks, blocking streets and burning garbage bins.
Police dispersed the rioters with stun grenades, tear gas and water hoses.
At least one of the rioters was wounded and three were arrested, Israel Radio reported.
The protesters had been listening to a sermon delivered by Islamic Movement head Sheikh Raed Salah at a massive protest rally north of the Old City.
During the sermon, Salah urged supporters to start a third intifada in order to "save al-Aksa Mosque, free Jerusalem and end the occupation."
He went on to say that Israel's history was tainted with blood. "They want to build their temple at a time when our blood is on their clothes, on their doorsteps, in their food and in their drinks. Our blood has passed from one 'General Terrorist' to another 'General Terrorist,'" exclaimed the Islamic Movement chief.
Salah called on the Jewish people "not to gamble with its destiny" and promised the crowd that the "statue of power and the statue of occupation" would both be shattered.
Salah also quoted assassinated Hamas-leader Sheikh Ahmad Yassin saying: "The powerful won't remain powerful for ever and the weak won't remain weak.
Salah exclaimed that the prophets of Israel would have forsaken the Israeli institution.
Following a violent protest 10 days ago, one of the most vocal opponents of the Mughrabi Gate project, Salah was barred by a court from coming within 60 meters of the Old City walls. On Monday, the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court agreed to a police request that he be barred from coming within 150 meters of the walls for 60 days.
Did the author actually use Jerusalemlem? Is that some sort of pejorative?
If it's Friday, it's time for worship. And after worship, it's time for mayhem. I'm hard pressed to think of any other places where this is a tradition.
No, that's my misspelling. The title was abbreviated J'lem. Maybe the AM can fix it.
Mazuz to review Salah for incitement
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Interior Security Minister Avi Dichter and Israel Police Inspector-General Moshe Karadi decided Friday that the words spoken by Islamic Movement head Sheikh Raed Salah calling on Muslims to renew the intifada would be reviewed by Attorney General Menachem Mazuz for incitement.
Salah told fellow Muslims at a massive protest north of Jerusalem's Old City that Israel had Palestinian blood "in their food and in their drinks" and that they must help bring about an "end [to Israeli] occupation."

Earlier, Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger called on authorities to bring Islamic Movement head Sheikh Raed Salah to justice, saying Salah's speech was filled with lies, illusions and anti-Semitism.
On Monday, the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court agreed to a police request that he be barred from coming within 150 meters of the walls for 60 days following a violent protest against the Mughrabi Gate project 10 days ago.
Wow, yours isn't?
When the police start dispersing the rioters with 7.62mm machine-guns, eventually the rioting will stop.
Hell, the water hoses are probably the only baths these vermin get ............. FRegards
