Jerusalem –  Recovering from his assassination attempt in October, Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick  says, despite it all, he is more determined than ever to fight for the right for Jews to pray at Temple Mount.

“After I woke up and I read the headlines in the press from the days it happened using the word ‘assassination’, I realized that this is… not just a plain terror act – but this was an attempt to assassinate me just because of my legal, legitimate activity for human rights, and my legal, legitimate activity for freedom to pray at the place that is the holiest place in the world,” said Glick in an interview with Israel National News ( ).

Jews are currently banned from worshipping at Temple Mount because of Muslim threats of violence.

Glick was shot four times by an Islamist terrorist while giving a speech at the Ben Heritage Center after speaking about Jewish prayer rights at Temple Mount on Oct.29. He said it happened so fast that “there was not even a moment” to comprehend what was going on.

“I heard clearly that he said: ‘I am shooting you because you are an enemy of Al Aqsa,’ and I understood directly that it was because of my activity on the Temple Mount – but I didn’t have enough time to give too much thought to that,” said Glick.

Glick said he will continue fighting for the right to worship at what is considered the holiest site. “The Temple Mount must be as (in) the words of (the prophet) Isaiah, ‘a house of prayer for all nations’.
