PA TV: Extremist Jew set fire to Al Aqsa

Broadcast of the opening ceremony of the First Islamic Jerusalem Conference. During the ceremony a short film was shown about sites in ‘Palestine’ that are holy to Islam. It included the following claim:
“On August 21, 1969, an extremist Jew set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This criminal act caused the entire eastern wing to be burned, as well as the ceiling of the southern [wing] and Saladin Al-Ayoubi’s speakers’ podium.”

Note: The fire in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969 was started by a deranged Australian Christian.
