PA reports on Jewish "invasions" of the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, claiming that these "provocative" tours spread "false" information "regarding the alleged Temple"

Headline: “50,000 held Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque”


“Extremist settlers held increased invasions [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque] during the days of the so-called Jewish festival of lights or Hanukkah, during which the settlers and their rabbis carried out provocative tours, held Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) rituals in the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas, and received false explanations regarding the alleged Temple.”



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.
