PA: Italian tourists "invaded" Al-Aqsa Mosque while discussing "myth of the alleged Temple"

“Groups of settlers renewed their attacks against the Al-Aqsa Mosque today [Aug. 25, 2016]. The mosque guards confiscated pictures and maps of the alleged Temple from a group of tourists from Italy who invaded the mosque from the Mughrabi Gate, during explanations that were being given by one of the settler guides regarding the myth of the alleged Temple.”

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 “attack” or “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.
