Temple Mount described by PA daily as being “invaded” by visiting Israelis; Jewish history at site called “the legend and myth of the alleged Temple”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Dec. 7, 2018
: “Dozens of settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“One hundred and thirty-five settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in the morning hours yesterday [Dec. 6, 2018]… and listened to explanations about the legend and myth of the alleged Temple from extremist guides.”
The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view 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.
