Temple Mount Activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick Talks Peace in Turkey

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

While Palestinian Authority Arabs have been working hard to keep Jews and others off the Temple Mount with violence and riots, a U.S.-born Israeli rabbi and Israeli Druze Likud member have just returned from a trip abroad to discuss peaceful co-existence.

Temple Mount activist and Heritage Foundation head Rabbi Yehudah Glick traveled to Turkey last week to talk about peace. Glick, who traveled to Istanbul with Likud party Druze member Mendi Safadi, met for discussions with Islamic officials and those of several other faiths.

The two men were hosted by Islamic scholar and peace activist Adnan Oktar, who has long been the quiet “matchmaker” for numerous other such meetings with other Jewish and non-Jewish officials.

Among others, Glick and Safadi met with state official Aydin Yigman, Mufti of the Beyoglu District on the European side in Istanbul. During their conversation, Yigman firmly condemned the assassination attempt that nearly cost Glick his life after a speaking engagement in Jerusalem last year.

“Any religion would condemn this attack,” the mufti stated. “It’s unacceptable.”

Local sources told JewishPress.com the conversation between Glick and the mufti was “very friendly” and described the atmosphere as “cordial.” Glick’s views on peace, particularly important during Ramadan in an Islamic nation whose bond with Israel has faltered in recent years, were “well received,” the source said.

The two Israelis also joined Oktar and others at a large festive Iftar meal to break the daily Ramadan fast on Thursday evening, held annually by Turkey’s A9TV, which is owned by Oktar’s organization. In addition to Islamic clerics and adherents, other participants included representatives from the Protestant, Assyrian, Armenian and Mormon churches as well as politicians, artists, academics and sports figures from Turkey.

In an interview with Glick on A9TV earlier in the week, Oktar recounted for his viewers in Turkish the tale of Glick’s brush with death last October and his miraculous survival, describing his role in fighting for Jewish access to the Temple Mount.

(The entire interview with English-language subtitles may be accessed by clicking here.)

During the interview, Glick remarked in English, “The worst thing about terrorism and violence is when people do it in the name of God… This makes it ten times worse… In a civilized society when two people are arguing and one gets up and beats the other one up, it does not mean he is right. It means he needs help and this help is calling to God’s name peace, Islam, Shalom – this is God’s name.

“They tried to kill me because I represent the people of Israel coming to Israel,” Glick added. “And this they tried to harm. And the situation today is, I am alive and he (the assassin) is dead. So we have to thank God for this.”

In response, Oktar commented, “It is the most despicable, lowest, outrageous thing to shoot a person who works for God’s pleasure all the time…

“According to Islam [R. Glick] is a person of the People of the Book and he is a very religious person… insha’Allah (God willing), God will show this beautiful person the King Moshiach – in other words, the Mahdi (Messiah) – and we will rebuild the masjid (ed. – mosque) of the Prophet Solomon, pbuh (peace be upon him), and the palace of Prophet Solmon, pbuh, and God will show him very beautiful days.

But THIS Is Allowed on the Temple Mount!!!

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

This speech was given on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem two weeks ago.

“They must convert to Islam, or pay the jizya poll tax, or else, you should seek the help of Allah and fight them.”

“You should fight them even if they do not fight you.”

Meanwhile, it’s Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who the police want to prevent from going up!

Police Appeal Decision Allowing Glick Onto Temple Mount

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

The Israeli police have appealed the decision of a Jerusalem court that granted human rights activist, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, permission to once again go up to the Temple Mount.

The police also asked permission to prevent Glick from going up until they receive an answer to their appeal, according to a YNet report.

The police claim, Glick’s “going up to the Temple Mount could lead to riots and a public safety risk.”

The soft-spoke Rabbi miraculously survived an Arab assassination attempt in October last year in Jerusalem, when he was shot four times at close range.

Glick’s primary source of income is working as a tour guide on the Temple Mount.

Unfortunately, the police would prefer to prevent Glick from working and entering the Temple Mount, than dealing with the Muslim instigators that harass him and other Jewish visitors to the Jewish people’s holiest site.

“Glick, You’re Alive!”

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Just days after a Jerusalem court gave Yehuda Glick permission to go up to the Temple Mount, Glick found himself once again assaulted by Muslims.

Glick hasn’t been up onto the Temple Mount since he was shot four times by an Arab assassin in Jerusalem and miraculously survived the attack.

The court ruled that Glick can go up only once a month, may not carry a cellphone with him, and can’t call out in a provocative manner.

The police did not appeal the court’s decision.

Glick works as a tour guide, and used to go up 3 times a day as part of his livelihood. This restriction will hurt him financially.

Apparently Glick’s carrying a phone annoyed the Muslims on the Temple Mount, presumably because he was able to record them harassing him.

As Glick walked in the Old City he was harassed by Arabs cursing “Allahu Achbar”.

The Arabs were shocked when they realized it was Yehuda Glick they were cursing.

One of them yelled out in surprise, “Glick, you’re alive!”

Court Allows Glick on Temple Mount – without Cell Phone

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

The Jerusalem Court ruled Tuesday morning that Rabbi Yehuda Glick can ascend the Temple Mount once a month on condition that he does not take a mobile cell phone with him.

Judge Miraim Kasklasi rejected demands from the police that Glick be barred from the Temple Mount because he is a “dangerous man.”

Glick, who has recovered from critical bullet wounds from an assassination attempt last year, said last week he would be willing to visit the site in a wheelchair and with his hands tied. His lawyer told the court that if he is so dangerous, the police should not even let him out of his house.

The judge said Tuesday that Glick cannot take his cell phone with him in order not “to aggravate Muslims.”

The court apparently does not understand that it is not Glick and not his cell phone that infuriates Muslims on the Temple Mount. Rather, it is Glick’s faith.

God does not need a cell phone to hear prayers, which is why the Muslim Waqf prohibits them from being uttered

Police Ban Yehuda Glick on Temple Mount because He Is ‘Dangerous’

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, who was critically wounded in an assassination attempt last year, applied to the Jerusalem Court this week to overturn a police order barring him from the Temple Mount because he is ” a dangerous man.”

Glick said he would be willing to ascend the holy site in a wheelchair and with his hands tied.

He has confounded police for years because of his mild and non-violent manner during his visits and attempted visits to the Temple Mount, where Arabs always are on hand to throw rocks at him and force him and his police escort off the holy site.

A Jerusalem Arab shot Glick at close range last October at the Begin Center,  and not at the Temple Mount or even in the Old City, a fact that gave Glick’s lawyer an opportunity to unmask the police department’s argument that he is “dangerous”.

His attorney asked Judge Miriam Kaslasi if she thinks Glick’s attackers are not dangerous and suggested that if Glick is a menace to the public, perhaps the police should not let him out of his house.

The lawyer added:

It is unreasonable to punish a man because others want to harm him. Police don’t want Glick n the Temple Mount because they do not want to fight against Arab terror there. Glick’s appearance on the Temple Mouton encourages others to ascend, and that makes work for the police.

The police hate hard work and prefer an easy life.

The court has yet ruled on Glick’s appeal.
