PA Prisoner Affairs Minister hails shooter of prayer rights activist in Jerusalem, Yehuda Glick, lauding the terrorist’s history of arrest and assault on (Jewish) prison guards.
Palestinian Authority (PA) Minister of Prisoner Affairs Issa Qaraqa on Thursday lionized Mu’taz Hijazi, the Islamic Jihad terrorist who tried to assassinate Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick in Jerusalem on Wednesday and was later killed in a shootout with police.
“Hijazi was one of the heroes of the Palestinian prisoners’ movement who defended freedom and dignity,” Qaraqa wrote in a statement published by the Palestinian Arab Ma’an News Agency.
Calling Hijazi a defender of “freedom and dignity” is particularly ironic, given the fact that he shot Glick who has championed the effort to gain Jewish prayer rights on the Temple Mount – the holiest site in Judaism – where the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) has banned Jewish prayer and discriminated against Jewish visitors.
