Abbas Calls to Stop Jews Visiting Temple Mount Using ‘All Means’

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas on Friday encouraged Islamists to continue efforts aimed at preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, calling on Palestinian Arabs to prevent “settlers” from entering the site using “all means” necessary.

His comments came days after Israeli police once again clashed with Muslim extremists protesters violently demonstrating against Jews visitingthe Temple Mount, which is Judaism’s holiest site and also the location of the Islamic Al Aqsa complex.

“It is not enough to say the settlers came, but they must be barred from entering the compound by any means. This is our Aqsa… and they have no right to enter it and desecrate it,” Abbas said.
