Glick is known for advocating for the presence of Jewish settlers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest place of worship, and for the construction of a temple for Jews on the site of the mosque.
Since 2003, the Israeli occupation authorities have been allowing settlers into the compound almost on a daily basis, with the exclusion of Friday, the Muslim day of rest and worship.
Israel captured East Jerusalem, where Al-Aqsa Mosque is located, during the Six-Day War in 1967 in a move never recognized by the international community.
