PA daily: Israel has destroyed foundations of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Israel "still attempting to Judaize Arab Jerusalem"

Headline: "At the hands of extremist Jew Michael Dennis – today is 42nd anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Mosque being set on fire"
"August 21st every year is a sad anniversary for the Palestinian people and for the Arab and Islamic nations – the anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Mosque being set on fire by the extremist Jew from Australia, Michael Dennis…
This criminal act caused serious responses in the Islamic world, and demonstrations broke out everywhere. One of the ramifications of this crime was the establishment of the Islamic Conference Organization, to which all the Islamic countries belong… But the organization has not succeeded in stopping the activities of destruction and defilement of Al-Aqsa to this very day…
From even before Al-Aqsa was set on fire, and until today, the Israeli authorities are trying via different ways and means to harm the Mosque, by excavating under it and building adjoining tunnels, which has led to the destruction of the Mosque's foundations at the Jerusalem Shrine [i.e., the Temple Mount].
The Israeli authorities are still attempting to Judaize Arab Jerusalem, and are always trying to hide [from view] the Dome of the Rock, regarded by the world as the symbol of Arab Jerusalem, in a pitiful attempt to convince the world that Jerusalem is not Arabic but rather Jewish. Likewise, they continue to incite against Muslims, and no one can rule out the possibility that some new Jewish 'madman' will set fire to the Mosque again."

Note: The fire in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969 was started by a deranged Australian Christian, but the Palestinian Authority has attributed it to Israel for years.
