Libel: Israel to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque
Libels
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will.


Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque
Both Fatah and Hamas have generated and sustained religious hatred by disseminating the libel that Israel is attempting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. With close to 100% of Palestinians identifying themselves as believing Muslims, this claim is highly
inflammatory and is often combined with the call to “defend Al-Aqsa” from the Jews. The Al-Aqsa libel includes numerous fabrications: Israel was behind a mosque fire in 1969; Israel is currently digging under the mosque in order to topple it; Israel plans to replace it with a new Temple; Israel is preparing a missile attack on the mosque, and more. This libel has been actively promoted since 1998.
 
This Hamas TV cartoon video depicts demonic Jews digging under the mosque in an attempt to topple it.

Al-Habbash demanded that the members of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem and in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) and everyone who can come to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in it, and protect its sanctity…
Al-Habbash warned the occupation government not to take any crazy steps regarding the holy city and the holy sites in it following the reckless and irresponsible decision of the American administration (i.e., to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and transfer the US embassy to it).”

Abbas advisor: The Temple Mount will remain a “purely Islamic” mosque under Muslim sovereignty, despite Israeli “acts of falsifying history and distorting historical facts”

This is as was determined by divine decree in the holy Quran and also by UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolutions, despite all the acts of falsifying history and distorting historical facts that the Israeli occupation state is attempting to carry out."

Note: Israel has publically stated multiple times that it has no intention whatsoever of changing the status quo at the Temple Mount.

PA daily: Israelis visiting the Temple Mount on a Jewish holiday carried out “invasions” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, organized by “alleged Temple” organizations  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 16, 2017
Headline: “The occupation is continuing to burden occupied Jerusalem – the settlers are renewing the invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
     “Yesterday [Oct. 15, 2017] groups of settlers renewed their invasion of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza through the Lion’s Gate [of the Old City of Jerusalem] amid reinforced protection from the occupation forces, and the settlers carried out provocative dubious tours at the blessed mosque plaza. The Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza was witness to widespread invasions by settlers last week, as a response to the calls of what are called the alleged Temple organizations to their activists and to the settler public to widely participate in collective invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza for the Jewish Sukkot holiday.”

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” 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.

"Alleged Temple organizations" refer to religious Jewish movements including the Temple Mount Institute, the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, The Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount and Students for the Temple Mount, which spread awareness of the importance of the Temple Mount in Judaism and encourage people to visit the site.

PA Government claims rebuilding of Silwan synagogue south of Al-Aqsa “constitutes a new aggression against Jerusalem” and was done for political, not religious, reasons 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 26, 2017
Headline: “The [PA] government: The participation of senior Israeli officials in the inauguration of a synagogue south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a new aggression against Jerusalem”

“The [PA] national unity government said that the participation of senior Israeli officials in the ‘inauguration’ of a synagogue south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque constitutes a new aggression against Jerusalem, and a serious blow to the natural status and the Arab-Islamic landmarks of the city (refers to the reinauguration of a historical synagogue; see note below –Ed.).
Official [PA] Government Spokesman Yusuf Al-Mahmoud said in a statement yesterday [Aug. 25, 2017]: ‘The [Palestinian] national unity government thinks that the establishment of a synagogue in Silwan, south of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, stems from purely political reasons that are connected to the character of the Israeli occupation government. [The synagogue] is part of the settlement enterprise and has no connection to religion’…
Al-Mahmoud again mentioned the warnings of the leadership and government against the government of Israel’s policy, which is liable to lead to religious wars that nobody wants. He demanded that the international community and free world intervene to put an end to the tensions immediately, and act seriously to establish peace and security in the entire region.”

Silwan synagogue – the Ohel Shlomo Synagogue – A historical Yemenite synagogue in the Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem, which was destroyed after the British expelled the Yemenite Jewish residents of the neighborhood in the 1930s amid Arab riots. In 2015, the Jerusalem District Court evicted an Arab family that was living in the building, and members of the Jewish Ateret Cohanim organization moved in. The synagogue is now being restored (2017).

PA Libel: "Jews of high position" planned Al-Aqsa Mosque ‎arson in in 1969‎ 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 21, 2017


Documentary narrator:
"From investigations conducted by the Islamic Council it ‎became clear that there was more than one perpetrator [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson ‎in 1969] and that the fire was planned by senior Jews of high position, especially since ‎the roof can only be reached from a wooden spiral staircase located outside the Al-‎Aqsa building. This proves that careful, premeditated measures were taken to ‎completely destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The proof is that the occupation authorities ‎were slow to extinguish [the fire] and that the water supply to the Sanctuary (i.e., the ‎Temple Mount) had been cut off during those hours." ‎

On Aug. 21, 1969, Jewish extremist Michael Denis Rohan (sic., Rohan was a mentally ill Christian) lit a fire in the eastern wing of the mosque, which spread to all of its contents… The [Arab] civilians succeeded in saving what was left of the Al-Aqsa Mosque before the fire could overcome it, after firefighting trucks came quickly from the cities of Hebron, Bethlehem, and different regions of the West Bank and the Arab towns in order to save the Al-Aqsa Mosque . This is despite the occupation authorities’ attempts to prevent them from doing this, and the fact that they stopped the water to the area around the mosque precisely on the day of the arson (sic., there is no evidence for these claims). The occupation [Jerusalem] Municipality’s firefighting trucks were also intentionally late in arriving so as not to participate in putting out the fire (sic., Israeli firefighters arrived within minutes but rioting Muslims interfered with their work and broke the only fire hydrant at the site). After Israel caught the perpetrator, an Australian citizen who came to Palestine as a tourist, it used the excuse that he was ‘insane’ in order to transport him to the place of his birth, Australia, after he was in a psychiatric hospital next to Acre for a short period.”
