PA Mufti praises "the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque Intifada‎," threatens violence if Jews try to pray at site of "alleged Temple"

Official PA TV News interviewed the PA ‎Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad ‎Hussein, following a news report stating ‎that Muslims would only be allowed into ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Fridays and ‎Saturdays. The report claimed that this ‎decision was part of an unofficial division ‎of prayer times for Jews and Muslims on ‎the Temple Mount as part of a plan to ‎divide the mosque between Jews and ‎Muslims.‎
PA Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh ‎Muhammad Hussein: “I wish to remind ‎‎[any] intelligent person – if there is ‎anyone intelligent in the Israeli ‎government – that [former Israeli Prime ‎Minister Ariel] Sharon’s entering the Al-‎Aqsa Mosque in 2000 triggered the ‎eruption of the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque ‎Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-‎‎2005). Then, the Palestinian people did ‎not remain silent in view of the ‎desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and ‎the Palestinian people will not remain ‎silent, under any circumstances, in view ‎of the division of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, ‎whether according to time or to place. This ‎nation will not suffer for long the dreams, ‎illusions and tales of those in whose ‎minds the alleged Temple lurks – [the ‎Temple which they claim stood] where the ‎Al-Aqsa Mosque stands.”‎

Note:‎ The division according to time or place ‎refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being ‎reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would ‎allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on ‎the Temple Mount. The law seeks to ‎implement separate prayer times for ‎Muslims and Jews at the site.‎
