PA daily: Jews visiting the Temple Mount are “settlers” who ‘invaded” and carried out “provocative tours” while hearing “explanations about the myth and lie of the alleged Temple”
Headline: “Dozens of settlers invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“One hundred and thirty-nine settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday morning [June 17, 2019]… During their provocative tours, the settlers listened to explanations about the myth and lie 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 “invasion” or a "break-in." 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.
