Temple Mount "is purely Islamic and belongs to the Muslims only" says Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher
Headline: “30,000 held Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas”
“In his sermon from the Saladin [Al-Ayyubi] pulpit in the Southern Mosque (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque itself), Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher Sheikh Yusuf Abu Sneineh emphasized that… the invasions taking place at the Al-Aqsa Mosque emphasize that it is a purely Islamic mosque that belongs to the Muslims only.”
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.
