Yehuda Glick Barred From Temple Mount

A Jerusalem court rejected an appeal by Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick allowing him to return to the holy site.

On Thursday, the Jerusalem District Court upheld a restraining order against Glick, who is accused of pushing a Muslim woman at the Temple Mount, breaking her arm. Glick denies the allegation.

“Taking into account the special sensitivities of the Temple Mount, the tension between the different groups, and on the backdrop of the difficult times we’re in, it seems no one can ensure that if a similar incident happens again, it would end with a broken arm and not a large riot with many casualties,” the court wrote in its decision.

Glick argued prior to the decision that his tours of the Temple Mount, which is holy to Jews and Muslims, are his main source of income and that he had visited the site several times since the incident without sparking riots.

His attorneys have said they will file an appeal with Israel’s Supreme Court.

Glick is recovering from an Oct. 29 assassination attempt outside a Jerusalem conference center, where he spoke on the Jewish right to pray on the Temple Mount.
