Glick, a promoter of Jewish access to the holy site, was shot and seriously wounded on Oct. 29 by an Arab gunman riding a motorcycle outside of a Jerusalem conference. He remains hospitalized, though his condition is improving.

On Thursday, the bi-weekly Capital City newspaper, which is distributed with the official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, printed the cartoon showing terrorist Mutaz Hijazi, who shot Glick, attempting to strangle Glick while saying “You make me mad!”

The “general supervisor” of the Capital City is Othman Abu Gharbieh, who is a member of Fatah’s Central Committee and the secretary general of the Popular National Conference of Jerusalem, a PLO-connected institution that publishes the bi-weekly newspaper. Capital City frequently honors terrorists, according to Palestinian Media Watch. In the same issue of the newspaper that included the Glick cartoon, the headline “Jerusalem will speak only Arabic” accompanies photos of the terrorists Hijazi and Ibrahim Al-Akari, who has killed two Israelis and injured more than 13 in Jerusalem terrorism.
