(JNS.org) Activist Yehuda Glick, a promoter of Jewish access to the Temple Mount who was shot and seriously wounded by a Palestinian terrorist from eastern Jerusalem in late October, has been released from the hospital.

The motorcycle-riding gunman, Islamic Jihad activist Moatez Hijazi, shot Glick outside of a Jerusalem conference and was later shot dead by Israeli police.

Upon being released from Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Glick praised the medical staff there.

"The terrorist who shot me said, 'I'm sorry, but I'm shooting you because you defile [the] Al-Aqsa [mosque.' But someone who shoots another person in the name of Al-Aqsa, he is the one who defiles Al-Aqsa. And he who treats another person at a hospital, he is the one who respects Islam," Glick said, the Jerusalem Post reported.

"The Muslim doctors and nurses that work in the hospital are the ones who respect their religion, and not the man who shot me,” he added.
