PA daily refers to Jews that “invaded” the Al-Aqsa Mosque and heard about the “lie of the alleged Temple”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Feb. 11, 2019
Headline: “Dozens of settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“Fifty-five settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday [Feb. 10, 2019] from the direction of the Mughrabi Gate, with heightened protection from the occupation forces. The settlers walked around in separate groups in the blessed mosque [compound] and listened to explanations about the lie of the alleged Temple.”
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.
