Yesterday, Ma'an described the event on the Temple Mount like this (the story has since been radically changed online:)
Confrontations erupted after groups of Israelis broke into the compound, reportedly under the guard of Israeli police. Palestinians hurled stones, chairs, and shoes at the Israelis, while police tried to disperse the Palestinians by force, injuring nine people right away, and four more throughout the morning.
The newer version of the story says this:
According to witnesses, clashes broke out after a group of about 150 Israeli settlers entered the Al-Aqsa compound on Sunday morning, reportedly under the guard of local authorities who also escorted the group away from the area when worshipers began to protest.
By all accounts, the Jews (or perhaps French tourists) who toured the Mount did nothing provocative. They didn't interrupt prayers, they didn't shout, they didn't riot, they didn't cause any disruptions at all by their actions. And when the worshippers protested the fact that they were doing nothing, they even left without a fuss.

All they did was walk around, something tourists do every day.

Since they were presumably Jews, however, the Arabs freaked out and started doing what they do best - rioting. They threw rocks and chairs at the people they identified as being guilty of the crime of being Jewish.

Today, the PA - those moderate darlings of progressive peace-pushers worldwide - praised the rioters:
The Fatah-backed Palestinian Authority in Ramallah has condemned Sunday’s Israeli infringement on the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound in Jerusalem and hailed Palestinians who rushed to defend the holy site.

In a statement issued on Monday evening, the cabinet of caretaker Prime Minister Salam Fayyad also urged Arab and Muslim countries to mobilize in defense of Al-Aqsa.

The government “congratulated the Palestinian masses when they rushed to defend Al-Aqsa Mosque and foiled the attempt of settlers and extremists to storm the Mosque.”
This isn't even Abbas - this is the uber-Western friendly prime minister Salim Fayyad praising rioters.

Of course, from their perspective, the "settlers" were being "provocative." Reacting to the provocation of "existing" with rocks and thrown chairs, as well as more rioting that carried over into today, is apparently a praiseworthy action according to the peaceful and moderate Palestinian Authority.

UPDATE: Here are some pictures of the poor provoked "worshippers," courtesy of Palestine Today:


Praiseworthy!
