When MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) gets excited, he speaks quickly and his breathing becomes heavy – because of the assassination attempt which nearly killed him two years ago.
The gunman, who fired four bullets at Glick from the point-blank distance of just 30 centimeters (less than a foot),was certain that he had finished the job and drove off. “Four Jews were assassinated in the month of Mar Heshvan (bitter Heshvan).” Glick said. “Rehavam Ze’evi, Yitzhak Rabin, Rabbi Kahane, and myself. I was the only one to survive.”
Glick is an unusual MK. He is the head of the Knesset Lobby for Strengthening the Jewish Connection to the Temple Mount, and he is also the head of the Lobby to Strengthen the Relations between Jews and Muslims.
Glick wears a blue and white bracelet with the words “The Temple Mount is in our hands,” which was distributed on Monday at a conference held by the Doresh Tzion organization on the ascension of Jews to the Temple Mount. The conference also marked the second anniversary of the assassination attempt on Glick.
