Jihad – victory or Martyrdom-death




Omar Ibrahim Abu Asab – 16-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded two Israeli border police officers near the Damascus Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem on Nov. 17, 2021, before the officers shot and killed him in self-defense.


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.
