PA says Jews who visit the Temple Mount “defile the Al-Aqsa Mosque”

Official PA TV Narrator: "Jerusalem is very important, because it has many important religious sites and locations like the Al-Aqsa Mosque… This mosque is being subjected to a variety of actions of systematic Judaization, including almost daily invasions by the settler herds with the support of the occupation authorities…These invasions intensify during the Jewish holidays and festivals. They defile our Al-Aqsa [Mosque.]"

[Official PA TV, Sept. 9, 2022]

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.
