Recent reports confirm that, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, an American-born activist is improving in his condition, following the recent assassination attempt on his life by a Palestinian Muslim terrorist. Just over a week ago, Rabbi Glick was shot 4 times in the chest at close range outside of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center.
A spokesperson for the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel has confirmed that Rabbi Glick is in the process of being weaned from the respirator and he ‘..has begun to communicate with those around him, responding to questions by answering ‘yes’ and ‘no’..’ The weaning process which began 3 days ago, includes waking him slowly and gradually getting him to breathe on his own, without the assistance of the respirator. The hospital representative went on to state that Rabbi Glick is ‘..expected to be breathing on his own entirely within the next few days, as the rehabilitation process continues..’
Rabbi Yehuda Glick is best known for taking up the plight of the Jewish people worldwide, in their right to pray on Temple Mount, the holiest site in all of Judaism. The assassination attempt on his life occurred following a speech he had just given on this topic. The would-be assassin, a Palestinian Muslim by the name of Mu’ataz Hijazi, was later pronounced dead following a confrontation and subsequent shootout with Israeli Special Forces and Shin Bet.
