PA daily: Israeli Culture Minister called for “the establishment of the alleged 'Third Temple' in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Jan. 28, 2019
Headline: "Settlers renewed their invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Regev invaded the Old City"
"Israeli Minister of Culture and Sport extremist Miri Regev invaded the Old City of occupied Jerusalem yesterday [Jan. 27, 2019] and carried out a provocative tour under increased security protection. Regev is known for her racist and extremist viewpoints against our people, and is considered one of the leaders in calling for the establishment of the alleged 'Third Temple' in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
Israeli Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev was visiting the Temple Mount with American actress Roseanne Barr and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
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. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
