Yesterday, Rabbi Yehuda Glick returned to visiting the Temple Mount after being banned for over a year because of false charges against him.

Media coverage of the event tells you a lot about the Israeli left, the Israeli police, the Arab world and the mainstream media.

Haaretz writes:
Right-wing activist Yehuda Glick entered the Temple Mount complex in Jerusalem Tuesday morning after some 18 months during which he was forbidden from entry.

The move from Glick comes after he was acquitted last week in the Jerusalem Magistrate's court on charges of assaulting a Palestinian woman on the Temple Mount. The acquittal included a lifting of his ban from the controversial holy site.

The state withdrew its indictment filed against Glick after inconsistencies arose in the testimony of the complainant and witnesses.

In an attempt to keep a ban from the Temple Mount in place, police argued in court that Glick's return to the holy site would likely present a danger to the public and that an attempt on his life in 2014 had increased the threat. 

Glick ascended to the Temple Mount at 7:30 A.M. in coordination with police. A few dozen Palestinians were present upon his entrance but the visit passed without incident.
So someone who wants equal access to the Temple Mount is "right wing."

And the Israeli police believe that an Arab trying to assassinate you should be a reason to take away your rights.

Anadolu Agency (Turkey):

The Israeli authorities allowed extremist Jewish rabbi Yehuda Glick to visit the Al-Aqsa compound for the first time since he was banned from the flashpoint site in 2014.

Glick leads Israel’s extremist "Temple Mount" movement, which calls for building a Jewish temple where the iconic Al-Aqsa Mosque currently stands.
No, he doesn't call for that.
Middle East Monitor:
Radical right-wing Rabbi Yehuda Glick was escorted under armed protection into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, days after an Israeli court lifted an order banning him from entering the Muslim holy site, Ma’an reported.

The director of the compound, Sheikh Omar Al-Kiswani, told Ma’an that Glick and his escorts entered the area via the Mughrabi Gate, in a move likely to provoke unrest.

“When an extremist like Glick storms Al-Aqsa Mosque, this stirs up troubles and provokes Muslims. We hold the Israeli police responsible for that,” Al-Kiswani said.

He added that the Palestinian Ministry of Endowment “denounces and opposes the entry of any [Israeli] settlers into Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Israeli religious hardliner Yehuda Glick visited the Al-Aqsa mosque compound Tuesday for the first time since a Palestinian tried to kill him over his campaign to boost the Jewish presence at the highly sensitive site.
Palestine News Network:
Israeli right-winger Yehuda Glick, known as the head of the Temple Mount Faithful group, was escorted – together with other settlers – under Israeli armed protection into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in Jerusalem, days after an Israeli court lifted an order barring him entry to the Islamic holy site.

A statement by Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said that the rabbi and the settlers stormed the compound entering through Al-Magharbeh gate, provocatively toured the yard and performed their Talmudic rituals.
He is not head of Temple Mount Faithful.

Petra News Agency (Jordan):
Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Hayel Daoud voiced Jordan's full rejection of the Israeli raids on Islamic holy sites in Palestine, mainly against the Al Aqsa Mosque/ Haram Al Sharif.

The minister said in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Petra, that any violation of Al Aqsa Mosque/ haram Al Sharif by Israelis whether politicians or extremists, is totally rejected by Jordan and should by immediately stopped by Israeli authorities.

He said that Al Aqsa Mosque is under Hashemite custodianship, noting that such provocative acts by some Israeli extremists should not continue.

The minister condemned the storming of the Haram Al Sharif compound Monday morning by Israeli Rabbi Yehuda Glick and a group of settlers, who made suspicious tour and performed provocative Talmudic rituals.

Jordan, he added fully rejects such measures, and warned of changing the status quo by Israel in violation of the international humanitarian law.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
