Libel: Israel to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will.

Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque
Both Fatah and Hamas have generated and sustained religious hatred by disseminating the libel that Israel is attempting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. With close to 100% of Palestinians identifying themselves as believing Muslims, this claim is highly
inflammatory and is often combined with the call to “defend Al-Aqsa” from the Jews. The Al-Aqsa libel includes numerous fabrications: Israel was behind a mosque fire in 1969; Israel is currently digging under the mosque in order to topple it; Israel plans to replace it with a new Temple; Israel is preparing a missile attack on the mosque, and more. This libel has been actively promoted since 1998.
This Hamas TV cartoon video depicts demonic Jews digging under the mosque in an attempt to topple it.
The following are more examples of the Al-Aqsa libel:
Grand Mufti of Jerusalem: Israel Judaizes Jerusalem and plans to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 26, 2014
     “The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein… said: ‘Considering the escalation of the occupation’s attack on Jerusalem in an attempt to completely Judaize it, obscure its Islamic characteristics, [and] lay hands on the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque… in addition to the threat of destroying the Al-Aqsa Mosque to establish the alleged Temple on its ruins – Heaven forbid – we wish to emphasize our previous religious rulings on the matter [of visits to the mosque by non-Palestinian Muslims, which read] as follows:
a. The plazas, walls, buildings, courtyards, domes, colonnades and stone benches of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, everything underneath the Al-Aqsa Mosque and everything above it, are Waqf (an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) until Judgment Day, and the Muslims have an exclusive right to them, which they share with no one."

Jews plan "to construct their alleged Temple on the ruins of the houses of Allah" 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 24, 2014
Op-ed by Baha Rahal
     “The series of Judaization actions in Jerusalem has been going on since the beginning of the occupation of the city and since the Arab armies were defeated and fled the battlefield in June 1967, abandoning the land of the Mi'raj (Muhammad’s Ascent to Heaven) and the Resurrection of the Dead to the occupation, which has tightened its grip on the city and begun to put forth mendacious and absurd claims and to invent [things] based on myths and fables…
Alone, Jerusalem counts the time [remaining]; alone, it stands in confronting a merciless enemy, who doesn’t hesitate to implement its plans and policy against the Holy City. This policy is not confined to isolating the city with the racist wall or driving out the residents of Jerusalem, and does not stop with the demolishing of homes, but aims for the destruction of the Islamic and Christian holy places in order to construct their alleged Temple on the ruins of the houses of Allah and the places of worship. This is the real challenge undermining the stability of Jerusalem these days – at a time when we are hearing a few hesitant voices that condemn or denounce. We do not hear the voice of the majority in the Arab and Islamic world, or the world at large – a fact which the occupation state sees as a golden opportunity, especially in the wake of the so-called ‘Arab Spring,’ the fighting going on in several countries, the explosions and violence in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen and other places. These days, the Arabs are split and divided… O brothers, o friends: There is no time to wait when [one is confronted] with an enemy racing against time. The time has come for you to desist from your old habit of condemning the occupation, which understands only the language of power.”

     “[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash emphasized that the continuing settlement and Judaization of the holy city [Jerusalem], the attacks on its holy sites, the escalating Israeli aggression against Jerusalem, the falsifying of its history with the aim of erasing its cultural, human and historical heritage, and the demographic and geographic changes in the city are all moves that are null and void according to international law, the decisions of the international institutions, and the Geneva and Hague Conventions for the Protection of Cultural Property.
In addition, he warned again of the danger of the racist Israeli violations being planned against [the] Al-Aqsa [Mosque], the Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs), and the rest of our people’s holy sites, all of which confirm that Israel’s aim is to tighten its control over [the] Al-Aqsa [Mosque], in preparation for destroying it and building their alleged Temple.”

The council noted that this move comes as part of the present Israeli plan to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews and to extend Jewish control over it. In addition, it [the Council] warned that Israel may create facts on the ground by dividing the Al-Aqsa Mosque similarly to the [way it did the] Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, an action that would signify the start of the realization of the narrative of the alleged Temple on the ruins of the Mosque.”
Israel's goal is Judaization of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem in preparation for building third Temple

     “The Israeli attack on [the] Al-Aqsa [Mosque] has crossed all political lines and is adding fuel to the flames of Palestinian public wrath, in order to ignite political fires and clothe them in religious garb. In addition, it complements and is consistent with the parallel, worrisome trend, that is meant to achieve several objectives, among them: … the exploitation of the Arabs’ present state of weakness in order to advance the process of the Judaization of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in particular and of Jerusalem as a whole, in preparation for the construction of the third Temple on its ruins.”

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “In the occupation state (i.e., Israel), they are talking about a tale, about a lie and [the] insane [idea] of extending Israeli sovereignty to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. What sovereignty is this? Whoever told you we even recognize your existence in Jerusalem? Whoever said we recognize your right to even a single millimeter of the land of Jerusalem? Who said this? You even talk about [having] sovereignty over our hearts, over our faith, over our religion. Who said this? Who can imagine such insanity? This insanity will not end well. It will not end well; it will not lead to anything good. They must understand that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is not a red line. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is a line of fire that will burn any hand that may be extended towards it to harm it.”

Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Sheikh Muhammad Hussein stressed that Al-Aqsa is an Islamic mosque [and is] for Muslims only, and no one will share it with them. He described the occupation’s and radicals’ intrusion into the Mosque as aggression and a direct blow to it… The Mufti added, ‘Enough playing with fire, if they want peace. Enough dragging the region to a blaze that no one can guess how it will end, for attacks on faiths, on religions and on ritual is an attack on security, on peace and on all religious and moral values of this world.’"

PA council: Israel’s goal is to build “alleged Temple” on ruins of Al-Aqsa Mosque

     “The [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Support of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites warned yesterday [Oct. 31, 2013] about marathon consultations and meetings held by the Israeli government in order to authorize the expansion of the Al-Buraq plaza (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount plaza) and turn it into a very large synagogue. It said that this plan constitutes a very great and real danger to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in general and the Islamic Al-Buraq plaza in particular. It also noted that Israel continues to desecrate holy sites and harm their sanctity through Judaization and demolition.
The Council’s Secretary-General Hanna Issa said that the Israeli government’s recent meetings about Judaizing the Al-Buraq plaza – after announcing an additional plan to turn an Islamic archeological site near the Al-Aqsa Mosque into a ritual bath to serve the Jewish women who have been invading the Al-Aqsa Mosque recently – are an obvious declaration of harm [aimed at] all sections of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and [the Israeli government’s] insistence on continuing with plans and initiatives to Judaize the holy city. [This will be done] until the goal is achieved and the Jewish dream is fulfilled: Building the alleged Temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa, gaining complete control of the occupied city and making it a Jewish city for Jews only.”

Note: In October 2013, Israeli Parliament Member Aliza Lavie announced she will work to make one of the ancient ritual baths, which was discovered near the Temple Mount, functional so that it will serve women ascending the Temple Mount and female residents of the Jewish Quarter [in the Old City of Jerusalem].

     “Secretary General of the PLO’s Executive Committee Yasser Abd Rabbo… related to the recent planned and calculated Israeli measures and projects to which the city of Jerusalem is subject, for the purpose of imposing a new reality on the city and even on the area of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which faces daily and recurring invasions by settlers in an attempt to divide up [between Jews and Muslims] its space and [visiting] times. This [is happening] in addition to ongoing Israeli excavations conducted under the pretext of searching for the alleged 'Temple,' so that the occupation authorities will be able to tighten their hold and control of it [the Al-Aqsa Mosque]."

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.
”The attempt to divide up [between Jews and Muslims] its space and [visiting] 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 implement separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews at the site.

[The ritual bath] will serve the Jewish women who break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque and desecrate it…
The Council's Secretary General, Dr. Hanna Issa said that this new plan, alongside hundreds of deliberate Judaization plans aimed against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and anything Arab in the occupied city of Jerusalem, serve as an Israeli means of Judaizing the Mosque. [This is done] by coordinated, increased efforts to dig tunnels beneath it, by taking hold of its Islamic sites, including its mosques and [holy] sites and turning them into synagogues and Judaization centers, [by] opening the gates of the Mosque to unrestrained extremists and settler herds so that they may desecrate it, and finally, by taking complete control of it in preparation for turning it into a synagogue for them and for building the alleged Temple on its ruins.”

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "break-in." All visitors are subject to rigorous security checks by Israeli security guards before being granted access to the Temple Mount.
