Al-Jazeera reporter run out of town by pro-Assad demonstrators

The highlight of numerous Land Day demonstrations by 'Palestinians' and 'Israeli Arabs' on Saturday was the chasing off of an al-Jazeera reporter by pro-Assad demonstrators in the 'Israeli Arab' town of Sakhnin.
Members of the crowd, some of them carrying Syrian flags, accused Al Jazeera of being one-sided, and a “propaganda outlet” that supports the Syrian rebels. 
The reporter took cover in a local restaurant until he was spirited out shortly thereafter.
While the reporter was inside the restaurant and after, scuffles broke out between pro and anti Assad supporters, with some beating each other with sticks. Eventually, cooler heads prevailed and the crowd cleared out.
At no point did police arrive during the fracas, which lasted a little over a half hour.
Some 2,000 demonstrators were joined by Arab MKs, local council heads and religious leaders in Sakhnin..
 Israel's security authorities had a very busy day on Saturday. Read the whole thing.
