Fatah protests security measures on Temple Mount, tacitly encouraging riots

Image and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

The image shows security cameras. Israel placed metal detectors and security cameras at the entrances to the Temple Mount following the terror attack on July 14, 2017, when three terrorists shot from the Temple Mount and murdered 2 Israeli border policemen. Israel removed the metal detectors on July 24, 2017. While ignoring Israel’s reason for installing these security measures to prevent future attacks on the holy site, PA and Fatah leaders have presented this step as a “violation,” claiming it is "a step on the way to establishing the alleged Temple."  This claim plays on the fears Palestinian leaders continuously are trying to sow among Palestinians that “the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in danger” of being destroyed by Israel.

The upper right of the image shows the Al-Aqsa Mosque, while a security camera appears in the upper center, and metal detectors appear at the bottom.

Note: “The three no’s” in Fatah’s post above, echo three other no’s - those of the Arab League’s 1967 Khartoum Resolution: No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel.
