Likud MK Yehuda Glick visited the Temple Mount on Sunday morning to mark the one-year anniversary of the passing of his wife Yaffa.

Glick, one of the strongest advocates for expanding access for Jews to pray and visit the disputed holy site, frequently visits the Temple Mount.
, Glick said that the Jewish people were now in “a process of building, a process of progress, and a process of bringing God closer.” He said that the progress was clear from the fact that only in the last four years have Jews been allowed on the Temple Mount on the fast day.
“We are now [going] in the direction of consolation, in the direction of fixing and building. This is what is important; the Jewish people is coming to the [Temple] Mount, the Israel Police are doing everything to respect those who are coming, the Jewish people is returning here as is the realization of the prophecy that this place is becoming the place that unites the world around [the concept] of one God with one name,” said Glick.
“The Jewish people without the Temple Mount is a body without a soul, and we here are beginning to resuscitate the soul. Every Jew who comes here is a partner in that. God willing, we will see the building and won’t need to continue to mourn over the destruction.”
