Yehuda Glick Attends Islamist Adnan Oktar's Iftar Event With 1,000 Muslim Clerics Who Tell Him: 'The Bullets Injured Islam More Than You'
July 12, 2015
MIM: It appalling that Yehuda Glick was duped by Islamist Adnan Oktar aka Harun Yahya into behaving like a "useful idiot" and attending this choreographed event. Even more appalling and revealing of their Islamist mindset is that he was told by the clerics that the bullets which nearly ended his life "injured Islam more than him".
Temple Mount Activist 'Survives' Dinner - With 1,000 Muslims

Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick sat in on a post-Ramadan meal in Istanbul attended by 1,000 Muslim clerics.
Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, who was savagely attacked last October by an Arab terrorist who shot him in the chest, found himself, figuratively, in "the belly of the beast" this week – attending a post-Ramadan meal in Istanbul attended by 1,000 Muslim clerics.
How did it go? "Not bad," said Glick, who had been invited by Adnan Oktar, a Turkish cleric better know as Harun Yahya, to attend the event. Yahya currently represents a moderate view of Islam (although in the past he was accused of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial), and has published numerous books on Muslim philosophy, creationism, and other subjects in numerous languages. During the event, Yahya asked the audience to stand up and condemn violence, including the violence done to Glick.
Despite the fact that his reputation preceded him, everyone Glick met condemned the shooting, he said. "Everyone knew who I was, and they said they would pray for my health," Glick said. "Many of the clerics said that the shooter 'injured' Islam even more than he injured me, and several recited passages from the Koran that one must respect Jews and refrain from harming them."
