Note: This cartoon was originally published a few days after Mutaz Hijazi, an Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner, attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick. Rabbi 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. Rabbi Glick was seriously wounded in the shooting attack (Oct. 29, 2014).

This cartoon was republished in February 2019 during violent clashes on the Temple Mount between Palestinain worshippers and Israeli security forces; see note:
