Rabbi Yehuda Glick escaped injury and even death in a rock-throwing attack Thursday night, exactly one year, one hour and one minute after a Jerusalem Arab tried to murder him.
Glick was critically wounded by four gunshots at point-blank range but made a miraculous recovery.
He was riding last night in a car driven by Rabbi Re’am HaCohen of Otniel, where Glick lives.
The car was pelted in a rock ambush between Beit Omar and Karmei Tzur, one of the favorite places for Palestinian Authority terrorists to try to murder Jews with a direct hit in the face or by causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash.
Glick’s wife told The JewishPress.com that the Arabs had ambushed several Jewish motorists and that a woman in a vehicle ahead of Glick and HaCohen’s was injured.
Glick posted on Facebook Friday morning:
I was saved from rock-throwing. One of the rocks smashed the side window, and I was lucky that the righteous Rabbi Re’am HaCohen was the driver. By his merit, the only damage was to the body of the car.
Blessed is He who has not taken away His loving kindness from me for even a minute.
Rabbi Glick noted that he used Gregorian and not the Jewish calendar to note the timing of the attack because that is the one Arabs used.
