PLO official: Terror in Jerusalem is “in order to prevent its Judaization and the division of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque”

Headline: “Abu Yusuf: 'We are working on a battle plan for the continued popular uprising'”
"PLO Executive Committee member Wasel Abu Yusuf said... yesterday [Oct. 28, 2015] in an interview with Radio Mawtini: ‘The residents of Jerusalem, whether they live behind the [separation] wall or in front of it, protect Jerusalem with their bare chests, in order to prevent its Judaization and the division of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.’ Abu Yusuf said: ‘The leadership of the national forces yesterday (two days ago) authorized a national battle plan during its meeting, in order to continue the popular uprising throughout the homeland, and to emphasize the momentum of the popular participation, in order to protect the rights of the resolute Palestinians and obtain freedom and independence.”
 
"Division according to areas and times" 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 designate separate prayer times and areas of the site for Muslims and Jews.
