Cartoon commemorating 50th anniversary of Al-Aqsa Mosque arson depicts lighter with Star of David lighting igniting pictures of Mosque

Headline: "Al-Aqsa has been going up in flames for the last 50 years"

The cartoon shows a filmstrip with shots of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and years noted progressively in the frames from 1969 to 2019. The filmstrip is being lit at its beginning in 1969 by a cigarette lighter with a Star of David on it, and the flames are seen continuing in the foreground of every shot. This refers to the 50th anniversary of the date when a mentally ill Australian Christian, Michael Rohan, set the Al-Aqsa Mosque on fire.

Michael Rohan - Australian Christian with a mental health disorder who set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969. For years, the Palestinian Authority has falsely accused Israel of setting the fire.
