PLO official promotes libel that Israelis seek to build Temple in place of Al-Aqsa Mosque

Ahmed Qurei (Abu Alaa) responds to the flyer supposedly circulated by the Likud, calling "to invade the Temple Mount and to build the alleged Temple"
"In a press release published yesterday, Ahmed Qurei [head of the PLO's Jerusalem Department] said that these renewed Zionist calls concerning the intention to rebuild the alleged Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to the Israeli Supreme Court decision that accompanied this call, permitting Jews to pray there, are preparations for raising the idea of dividing the Al-Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews, as a step on the way to realizing their aim – the rebuilding of the alleged Temple… Qurei called upon residents of Jerusalem and residents of the Palestinian Interior occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel) to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday, in order to stand against the Zionist calls and to maintain the sanctity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
