In the wake of the shooting of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, MK Nissan Slomiansky (Jewish Home) said that he would file a bill with the Knesset making it illegal to employ convicted terrorists.

Glick's shooter, according to reports, was an Islamic Jihad terrorist who had been imprisoned in Israel for a number of crimes – and was employed at the Begin Center, the venue where Glick was shot Wednesday.

“I call on all business owners to stop employing released terrorists,” Slomiansky said. “As we saw again Wednesday night, these people will continue to attack and kill Jews at every opportunity. Employers who seek to give them a 'second chance' are in reality setting the stage for wide-scale terror attacks, giving the terrorists motive, and especially opportunity, to carry out attacks.”

The only solution, Slomiansky said, was to ban the practice altogether. “I will be filing a bill that will require the state to publicize the name and personal details of convicted terrorists who are released from prison, along with the type of crime they committed. Thus an employer will be able to avoid hiring these dangerous people, and give the appropriate people an opportunity to return to society,” he said.

32 year-old Islamic Jihad terrorist Mu'taz Hijazi, the Islamic Jihad terrorist responsible for the attempted murder of Temple Mount rights activist Yehuda Glick, was released from prison in 2012, after serving 11 months for terrorism against Jews. He was an employee at the Terasa restaurant, located inside the Begin Heritage Center where Glick was talking moments before he was shot outside the building.

Arutz Sheva reached out to the Terasa restaurant for clarification as to how a convicted terrorist could be employed there, but the restaurant refused to issue a response.

Upon his release, he made the following remarks. "I am happy to return to Jerusalem. I wish to be a thorn in the throat of the Zionist plan to Judaize Jerusalem."
