News the HP Doesn't Cover: Hamas, Fatah Whine About Jews Praying on Temple Mount

You would think the Palestinians, with their carefully constructed victim persona, wouldn't be so quick to make a stink over things like Jews praying on the Temple Mount, but apparently not:

"Palestinians from across the political spectrum have attacked Israel, following reports of an Israeli government plan to allow Jewish prayer on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. 
On May 8, the Knesset’s Interior Committee, headed by Likud MK Miri Regev, debated the long-standing unofficial ban on Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, revered as the site of both Jewish temples and currently administered by the Islamic Wakf. At the meeting, Elhanan Glatt, the director general of the Religious Affairs Ministry, said that his ministry was examining the possibility of revising the informal ban on Jewish prayer at the site. 
Hamas deputy politburo chief Moussa Abu Marzouq on Sunday described the Knesset session as an Israeli decision to encroach upon Islamic worship at the site, known in Arabic as Al-Haram Ash-Sharif. 
“What the Zionist Knesset authorized is very dangerous,” wrote Abu Marzouq on his Facebook page late Sunday night. “They talk about dividing the al-Aqsa Mosque as an expression of freedom of worship!”"
How dare the Knesset even discuss allowing Jews to pray on the Temple Mount! Us poor suffering Palestinians don't like that one bit!!
