Muslims are just as upset over Jews praying at the Kotel as on the Temple Mount

Al Resalah, a Hamas-leaning news site, has an article over the horrendous "raids" and "incursions" of Jews during the current holiday season, which they say is all an excuse to eventually take over the Mount.

As you read the rant, you notice that the complaints aren't only for "settlers storming the Al Aqsa Mosque," which is the usual reason for their articles, but they are upset at Jews doing anything at the Western Wall as well. Muslims consider that to be a part of Al Aqsa Mosque and they do not distinguish between their anger at Jews walking near the Al Aqsa Mosque and Jews praying at the Kotel.

For example:
The scene began on September 29, alongside the Western Wall of Al-Aqsa, when Jewish extremists gathered in enormous numbers, almost the greatest since the beginning of the Israeli incursions, and began to repeat their Talmudic prayers with a loud voice alongside the holy Islamic wall.
One of the things that "everybody knows" is that the Kotel should end up under Jewish sovereignty and the Temple Mount under Muslim control. But nobody told the Palestinians this, they believe the entire Old City is theirs, with no chance even for negotiation.
