PA daily claims Jews visiting the Temple Mount “invaded” the Al-Aqsa Mosque and heard about “the alleged Temple”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Feb. 8, 2019
Headline: “Over 40 settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“Over 42 settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday [Feb. 7, 2019] from the Mughrabi Gate, under heightened protection by the occupation forces. The settlers carried out provocative tours at the mosque and listened to explanations regarding the place of worship and 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.
