Jews “invade” the “desecrated” Al-Aqsa Mosque for Jewish holiday, hearing about the “alleged” Temple
Headline: “Hundreds of settlers invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“Hundreds of Jewish extremists from the organization Students for the Temple Mount invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas under protection of the occupation police yesterday [Oct. 16, 2019], for the third consecutive day of what is called the Jewish Sukkot holiday. In addition, an Israeli helicopter circled over the Al-Aqsa Mosque to secure the desecration of its plazas by the extremists. Palestinians from Kafr Qassem in the Palestinian Interior that was occupied in 1948 (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) were forbidden from entering the mosque…
The Jerusalem Islamic Endowment Department announced that [Israeli] occupation Minister of Agriculture [Uri Ariel] invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque together with dozens of settlers… and that they held provocative tours in the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas and listened to explanations about 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.
