Facebook has shut down the personal page of Yehuda Glick, the rabbi who was shot by an Islamic Jihad terrorist in Jerusalem two weeks ago.Facebook made its decision following a wave of reports they received claiming that the page had offensive and harmful content on it. The complaints were likely the result of an anti-Israel campaign to have the page shut down.

Arnon Segal, a Makor Rishon reporter who is close to Glick, told the Israeli NRG news site: “This is outrageous! The page is gone, as if it had never existed.” He remarked cynically that “they probably removed the page because he posed a threat to public safety, to democracy and the rule of law.”

The Truth – Glick Advocated for Coexistence

Glick, executive director of the Haliba movement for Jewish freedom on the Temple Mount, is an advocate for coexistence between Jews and Muslims. Glick has been fighting for equal rights for all. He had never called for depriving Muslims, Christians and others of the freedom to pray at the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, where the First and Second Temples stood. On the contrary; he often quotes from the verse in Isaiah, which states: “For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

Glick has also prayed together with Muslims on the Temple Mount. He is a living example of peaceful co-existence between Israelis and Arabs.

Slight Improvement

Glick’s doctors report a moderate improvement in his condition. He has undergone a few surgeries, and the doctors hope to awaken him from his medical induced coma in the coming days after weaning him from the respirator to which he is connected.
