Rabbi Who Survived Assassination Try Embraced in Turkey

Rabbi Yehuda Glick returned to Israel after a warm welcome at an Islamic conference in Turkey

Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who has campaigned for years for Jews to be allowed to pray on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, was the target of an assassination attempt last October. A jihadist shot him at close range after a conference outside the Old City.

But Rabbi Glick recovered, and last month he went to Istanbul, where he was the guest of honor at a meal that ended the fast of Ramadan.

The Muslim group welcomed Rabbi Glick, offering prayers for his health, along with their joy at his survival. They understood and  identified with his search for an arrangement that would permit the Temple Mount to be a place of prayer for all nations.

What are your thoughts? Will peace come through religious understanding?
