Yehuda Glick, who was shot and critically wounded several months ago, received permission to return to the Temple Mount last week. Arab residents started to shout at him “Allahu Akhbar” and “you are still alive.”

A few days after receiving permission to go back to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, right-wing activist Yehuda Glick was yelled and cursed at as he was heading for the Temple Mount to pray on Thursday. Glick, who was critically injured in October after being shot at the Menechem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, was recognized by Muslims on Thursday at the Temple Mount.
“I was walking down the street with a Canadian Jew,” Glick said. “After visiting the Western Wall and drinking coffee at a cafe, we walked together towards the Jewish Quarter. A group of Muslims who recognized us tried to scare us by shouting, while in reality they were showing my guest exactly what we had been talking about a minute before – the attempt by Muslim extremists to create fear and intimidate Jews in Jerusalem.”
Glick emphasized that “we have no intention of giving them what they want. Terrorism and violence will not silence us or distract us from our path of obtaining human rights and freedom for Jews on the Temple Mount.”
“From the moment the court granted me permission to return to the Temple Mount this week, terrorists have done everything that they can to thwart my visit,” Glick added. “I hope and even want to believe that security officials are closely following their behavior and are prepared to make sure the court’s decision is applied by sending out a clear message that Jerusalem will not succumb to terrorism and violence.”
