Sheikh Najeh Bakirat, Deputy Director of the Waqf in Jerusalem, said that the upcoming Jewish  holidays are just a means to promote the idea of ​​the existence of the Temples on the Temple Mount and work to build a new one.

Bakirat told Al-Resalah, "Celebrating these holidays in the Old City and Al-Aqsa is an attempt to establish the idea of ​​the Temple on the ruins of the blessed Al-Aqsa.”

“Everything that is happening around Al-Aqsa is for the same idea, which is to dedicate the temple. ...What is happening in terms of imposing construction, demolition, expulsion, and confiscation of lands in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa, is part of the idea of ​​preparing for this temple.”

Bakirat claimed that these holidays combat the Palestinian existence, culture and demographics of Jerusalem, "as they bring large numbers of Jews to the city and expel most of the Palestinians from it."

He described these holidays as “a disaster for the people of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa,” calling in light of this escalation to “increase our awareness of what the occupation is doing, expose all policies, increase the presentation of our narrative, deepen the presentation of the Arab-Palestinian narrative, and convey a depth of understanding of Rabat in our homes and shops and the niches and courtyards of Al-Aqsa.”

Al Quds International issued a statement as well, saying "Jewish holidays are no longer merely religious or national occasions, but rather have become an opportunity that extremist 'temple organizations' exploit in the ugliest way to impose further progress in imposing new Judaizing realities in Al-Aqsa Mosque."

It warned that Jews plan "to mobilize the largest possible number of Jewish settlers in Al-Aqsa, and perform various Jewish rituals there, including blowing a trumpet, offering plant sacrifices, wearing the garb of priests, complete epic prostration , reading texts from the Torah, singing the Zionist anthem, raising the Israeli flag, and other attacks."

Sheikh Ikrimah Sabri, the preacher of Al-Aqsa and head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, called on Muslims to "thwart the plans of the occupation and settlers during the upcoming Jewish holidays."

He said that "the occupation loses its sanity when it sees crowds of [Muslim] worshipers marching to Al-Aqsa."

Hamas media quotes an official, Bassam Abu Sneineh, who calls "to increase the pace of specific resistance operations during the Jewish holiday season, to disturb the occupation and make it think carefully about the repercussions of storming Al-Aqsa."

Haroun Nasser al-Din, the official in charge of the Jerusalem office of Hamas, also called for terror attacks to stop Jews from celebrating holidays. "The battle with the occupation continues, and the operations of our heroes in the West Bank and Jerusalem will continue in response to the crimes of the occupation in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa. Our people have the full right to defend their land and sanctities by all available means."
