Temple Mount activist Yehudah Glick is currently in Istanbul, Turkey, meeting with Muslim religious leaders, Turkish politicians, and media, and joining as an honored guest in celebrations of the month-long holiday of Ramadan.
Tonight, Glick will join representatives of different religions at a large ceremony celebrating the traditional break-fast meal of iftar, which is eaten each night at the conclusion of the daily Ramadan fast.
Glick, the founder of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, survived an assassination attempt in October by a Islamic terrorist who opposed his activities on the Temple Mount. His stated mission in Turkey is to join with Muslim religious leaders in denouncing violence in the name of religion.
Glick supports visiting the Har Habayis despite the fact that the leading gedolim and poskim of this and the previous generation forbade doing so under all circumstances.
