(Shaarei Tzedek Hospital) Rabbi Yehuda Glick gave a touching and emotional press conference to a full room of reporters on Monday night, thanking God, his family and especially the doctors at Shaarei Tzedek who worked for the past 25 days to keep him alive and help him recuperate.
Glick recounted what the assassin told him right before he was shot.
The assassin said that he is sorry, but he has to shoot Glick because Glick is desecrating Al Aqsa Mosque.
At the press conference Glick said that the only one who is desecrating Al Aqsa and Islam are those that kill in the name of their religion. Glick added that at the hospital he was treated by Jewish and Arab doctors and caretakers working side by side.
Glick said, the Arabs who are sanctifying Al Aqsa and Islam are those Arabs who are saving lives, like those on the hospital staff who treated him.
Glick was released from the hospital.
