PA daily reports on calls by “alleged Temple organizations” to Jews to “broadly participate in invasions (i.e, visits) of the Al-Aqsa Mosque for the Jewish holidays”

Headline: "Settlers continued to do as they please with the Al-Aqsa Mosque under increased protection"
"Alleged Temple organizations increased their calls to their supporters and to the settler public through their information websites to broadly participate in invasions of the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque for the Jewish holidays that will continue until the end of this month."

"Alleged Jewish 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.

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.
