The possibility of US President Barack Obama visiting Temple Mount would be a declaration of war on the Muslim world, a Hamas representative said on Friday, according to Iranian news agency PressTV.

Musheer al Masri, a representative of Hamas in the al-Aqsa mosque, called for a third intifada (uprising) against Israel if Obama chooses to visit the holy site.

Obama is scheduled to arrived in the region on March 20, for his first visit to the West Bank and Israel since being elected as president.
