The High Court has ordered Israel Police to allow Yehuda Glick, chairman of the Human Rights on the Temple Mount group, to ascend the Mount, after having denied him the right to do so for many months. Police were told to set up a meeting with Glick and then to allow him to visit the site.
Police last year banned Glick because of his activities in promoting Jewish visits to the Mount, and police harassment of Jews who did ascend. Last spring, Glick filed a petition with the High Court, demanding that the ban against his visiting the site be lifted. In September, the court ruled that police must allow him to visit the site, but police still refused to do so – leading to yet another petition, with the court now ruling that the meeting must take place by the end of next week.
