Anyone can read the literature of the Temple Institute and other groups of fanatic nationalist to see that this is their own claim. They have been trying for yrs to erect a synagogue on the Temple Mount. Their intention is not to share but to control and dispossess the Muslims from the site. They refer to the Muslims in their literature as usurpers, polluters and occupiers. Salah is therefore basing his assertion on their stated intentions. It is hardly something covert.
