14-year-old terrorist Muawiyah stabbed an Israeli, believing it would stop Jews from "invading Al-Aqsa" i.e., visiting Temple Mount
Uncle of terrorist Muawiyah Alqam: "Muawiyah is in jail like every prisoner. I met with him and spoke with him. His spirit is strong. He always asks me about the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said plainly and with a good deal of innocence: ‘Maybe after two operations (i.e., terror attacks) they (i.e., the Jews) will stop invading the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.’"
Official PA TV host: "It is clear that the small hopes of this child are connected to the blessed 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.” 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.
