PA arrests man for hosting right wing Israeli MP

Headline: "The [PA General] Intelligence [Service] arrested a citizen who hosted Glick in his home"
"The Palestinian [PA] General Intelligence [Service] arrested citizen Muhammad Saber Jaber today (Sunday) [Sept. 10, 2017], because he hosted extremist Jewish Rabbi [and Israeli Member of Parliament] Yehuda Glick in his home during the blessed Eid Al-Adha (i.e., Muslim “Sacrifice Feast” holiday).
The Jaber family distanced itself from its son in a statement it published on social media and in several mosques in Hebron, because he hosted a rabbi known for his extremism and invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque together with groups of settlers.
On Sept. 3, [2017,] Rabbi Yehuda Glick posted several pictures on his official social media page that document him celebrating Eid Al-Adha together with Muhammad Jaber and his family in Hebron."

Rabbi Yehuda Glick is the Chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation that works to increase awareness of the central place the Temple Mount and the Temple hold in Jewish heritage through educational activities and by encouraging people to visit the Temple Mount. In addition, he is the coordinator of the LIBA initiative - The Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount initiative whose goal is to obtain freedom and civil rights for Jews on the Temple Mount. On Oct. 29, 2014, Mutaz Hijazi, an Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner, attempted to assassinate Glick, who was seriously wounded in the attack.

The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they vilify any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion” or a "break-in." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
