PA daily: "Settlers carried out tours of provocation at the mosque, while [receiving] explanations about the myth of the 'alleged Temple'"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Sept. 5, 2016

 
Headline: “At the same time as calls of the ‘Temple organizations’: Settlers renew their invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
     “Settlers yesterday [Sept. 4, 2016] renewed their invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque [plaza] through the Mughrabi Gate, under increased guard and protection by special occupation forces. The settlers carried out tours of provocation at the mosque, while [receiving] explanations about the myth of the ‘alleged Temple’ [that was] in its place, while the worshippers came out against these invasions and tours with calls of protest: ‘Allahu Akbar.’”

"Temple organizations" refers to religious Jewish movements that include 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. Preceding the Purim holiday, religious websites such as the Temple Mount News website [Feb. 23, 2015] announced a "special visit" to the Temple Mount, which was expected to draw "masses of Jews."

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.
