14-year-old terrorist Muawiyah stabbed an Israeli, believing it would stop Jews from "invading Al-Aqsa" i.e., visiting Temple Mount
Uncle of terrorist Muawiyah Alqam: "Muawiyah is in jail like every prisoner. I met with him and spoke with him. His spirit is strong. He always asks me about the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said plainly and with a good deal of innocence: ‘Maybe after two operations (i.e., terror attacks) they (i.e., the Jews) will stop invading the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.’"
Official PA TV host: "It is clear that the small hopes of this child are connected to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."
Program: Good Morning Jerusalem
The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they vilify any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion” or a "break-in." 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.
Pisgat Ze'ev stabbing attack - two Palestinian terrorists, cousins Hassan Manasrah (15) and Ahmad Manasrah (13), stabbed Yossef Ben Shalom (21) in the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood in northeastern Jerusalem, and then repeatedly stabbed Naor Ben Ezra (13) who was riding his bike on Oct. 12, 2015. Both victims were seriously injured. Hassan Manasrah was killed while fleeing the scene, and Ahmad Manasrah was shot by Israeli police, arrested, and hospitalized. Ahmad Manasrah is serving 9.5 years in prison for two counts of attempted murder, after his original 12-year sentence was shortened by the Israeli Supreme Court on Aug. 10, 2017, which claimed he had "gone a long way in his rehabilitation."
