Moriah Halamish, a young woman who attended Rabbis Glick’s lecture on Weds, Oct 29 at the Menachem Begin Center described what happened. Moriah related that Rabbi Glick was standing at the entrance of the Begin Center when a man walked up to him and asked, in Hebrew, speaking in an Arabic accent. if he was Rabbi Yehudah Glick. Glick responded affirmatively. The man then said to Glick that “You have insulted me very deeply” and fired a gun at Glick , watched him fall to the ground, and then ran out of the center, and drove away on a motorcycle.
Rabbi Glick, a licensed tour guide, has led the campaign to allow Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
