Glick wins assault case, is allowed to return to Temple Mount

A protracted legal battle barring Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick from visiting the contested holy site for a year and a half came to a close on Thursday, when the Jerusalem District Court cleared him of wrongdoing in a purported assault against an elderly Muslim woman.

According to Glick’s attorney, Itzhak Bam, who represented him on behalf of the Jerusalem Public Defenders Office, on August 31, 2014 the plaintiff, 67, accused Glick of pushing her to the ground while on the Temple Mount, causing her to break her arm.

The woman, who lives in Arraba, an Arab community near the Lower Galilee, filed a complaint to police that day, and Glick was charged with assault and banned from entering the site again until the case was resolved.
