Let's Get the Name Correct

As reported:

The Palestinian National Council said in a press release that even after 47 years of the arson [the torching of Al-Aqsa by Australian Christian Dennis Rohan], Israel continues its attempts to change the face of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.  The council called on both Arab and Muslim organizations to support the people of Jerusalem and their steadfastness, especially in light of settlers increasing violations.
It called on UNESCO to implement its decision which adopts the Arabic and Muslim name for Al-Aqsa Mosque and reject the Israeli name

This report adds

Hussein accused Israel of trying to turn Jerusalem into its eternal capital and cleanse out any expression of Arab and Islamic culture from it. He stressed, “It is not just Al-Aqsa and its domes which reflect the Islamic nature of the city, but each floor of the holy city, every remnant of the city, and every centimeter attest to the fact that it is an Arab and Islamic city, whose roots lie deep in history and culture.”

The name of 'Temple Mount' is Biblical.  It is Hebrew.  Isaiah 2:2:

 וְהָלְכוּ עַמִּים רַבִּים, וְאָמְרוּ לְכוּ וְנַעֲלֶה אֶל-הַר-יְה-וָה אֶל-בֵּית אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב, 

And it is Jewish, not 'Israeli'.

Next, they'll describe it as 'Zionist'.
