PA daily: “Alleged ‘Temple’” organizations call on supporters to carry out “many invasions” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to celebrate Jewish holiday of Purim

Headline: “Calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque in large numbers for the Jewish Purim holiday”
       “The alleged ‘Temple’ organizations have called on their supporters to participate in large numbers in many invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque during the coming two days in order to celebrate the Purim holiday. These extremist organizations have explained that these invasions are important to them and to their supporters. They noted that during the invasions there will be ceremonies and special sweets for the Purim holiday, in addition to special Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) songs and prayers.”

Break-in/Invasion/attack of Al-Aqsa Mosque - The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, they vilify 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.

Temple organizations” refer to religious Jewish movements including the Temple Mount Institute, 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.
