There Should be Prayers on Har HaBayit, Temple Mount, for Yehuda Glick!

I don't know what's happening now on Har Habayit, but that's where there must be prayers for the complete recovery, refuah shleimah רפואה שלימה of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Yehoshua Ben Rivka Ita Breindel Glick.

The most proper and suitable reaction to this act of terrorism would be Jewish Prayer on the Temple Mount right now!!

Glick was shot at close range by a terrorist on a motorcycle, just as he was leaving the Menachem Begin Heritage Center after a program there promoting Jewish prayer and presence on the Temple Mount.

Here's a first person account on David Bedein's Behind the News in Israel of the attack by someone who was there:
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.
This attack was terrorism in the very center of Jerusalem, right near Liberty Bell Park, Emek Refaim, the "First Station" and  the Yemin Moshe neighborhood.

Please pray for a complete recovery, refuah shleimah רפואה שלימה for
Yehuda Yehoshua Ben Rivka Ita Breindel Glick.

the only thing left to do since the Jews have done everything but hand over the Temple Mount and walk away, is to declare war and throw them out now. They are killing us anyway, just slowly- at least this way we have a fighting chance.

the arabs think they can scare us away- not so. We have to go there in spite of their tactics, but we need large numbers, in the 10s of thousands.

The attacker was actually employed by the Menachem Begin Heritage Center.

He had done computer searches to find out where Rabbi Yehuda Glick was going to speak, but it turns out, wait a second, that wasn't necessary.

I wonder: Is there some kind of double agent at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center? Not just to hire the would-be assassin, but to get Rabbi Yehuda Glick there?

Debby, it would take a major military action to clean the Temple Mount of Arab terrorists. Arabs aren't inspected, only Jews and Christians, and only Jews are forbidden prayers.

Sammy, what's really frightening is that top Israeli officials including the Prime Minister and President are frequently at the Begin Center, though they don't use the front door. It was no secret that Glick was going to be there.
