PA daily: Settlers "invaded" Al-Aqsa mosque to discuss "false explanations regarding the myth of the alleged Temple"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Oct. 25, 2016
"346 settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque"
"The [Jordanian] Islamic Waqf Department in Jerusalem said that 346 settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday morning and afternoon [Oct. 24, 2016]…
The settlers received false explanations regarding the myth of the alleged Temple [that was] in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, while the throats of the worshippers made calls of 'Allahu Akbar’ (i.e., Allah is great) in protest against the settlers’ invasions and the tours of provocation at the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
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.
