Former MK Yehuda Glick spoke on Friday following Thursday's lynch attack on him by Arabs. Following the attack, Glick was hospitalized with "light" injuries.
"I want to thank G-d Almighty, Creator of the world, for saving my life once again from an assassination attempt," Glick said. "What I went through yesterday in Jerusalem was a murderous lynch. As a matter of fact, it concluded with a miracle. Just miraculously, I am alive right now."
"It was my luck that the tens of people who were around there didn't have a pistol or a knife or an axe or a bat or a stick or anything...otherwise I wouldn't be here today."
"I personally, I'll feel better," he added. "But the real pain is to see what's going on in our society, where you do whatever you can to try to respect people and to try to express the understanding that every person was created in the image of G-d. And at the end of the day you see that there are still societies in this world that for them violence is a legitimate instrument. You find people that for them, lynch is in their daily tools."
"I can assure you, they will not stop me. They will not manage, just like they didn't before, just like they haven't until now, from now on, either. They will not prevent me from continuing doing what I do."
