WHO is Yehuda Glick, the man shot in Israel, allegedly by Mu’taz Hijazi, shot dead by Israeli police?

Wikipedia tells us:

Yehuda Joshua Glick (Hebrew: יהודה גליק‎; born 20 November 1965) is an American-born Israeli rabbi and “civil rights activist” who campaigns for expanding Jewish access to the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif. Glick is the leader of HaLiba, a coalition of groups dedicated to “reaching complete and comprehensive freedom and civil rights for Jews on the Temple Mount.”…

Glick advocates opening the Temple Mount on an equal footing to prayer by Muslims, Jews, Christians and others.

Said Glick:

“We are talking about sharing, coexistence, tolerance, respecting one another. I think that genuine peace must begin with tolerance and respect. I think that Jews, Muslims, or Christians, anybody who supports peace, anyone who supports praying — talking to G-d — should be allowed to on the Temple Mount.”
