PA: Jews visiting Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, are "invading settlers" and "provocative"

Headline: “Settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the occupation police persecuted the young people who were in its plazas”

 

“Yesterday, Thursday [March 17, 2022], dozens of settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque… The invasions were carried out in groups comprised of dozens of settlers who carried out provocative tours in the plazas of the [Noble] Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) and received 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.
