PA calls Jews visiting Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, "invading settlers" while delegitimizing the historical Jewish Temple

Headline: “Dozens of settlers invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque”



“Sources in Jerusalem reported that dozens of settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque, held provocative tours, and held Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) rituals in the mosque’s plazas, and especially in its southern part. They also listened to explanations from their rabbis about the myth of 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.
