Israel seeks to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque and to build Jewish Temple on its ruins

Headline: "Dr. Zakariya Al-Agha calls upon both the Arab and the Islamic nation to aid Jerusalem and to protect Al-Aqsa [Mosque]"
     "Dr. Zakariya Al-Agha, member of the PLO Executive Committee and head of the Refugee Department, called upon the Arab and Islamic nation… to support Jerusalem and to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the plans of the Israeli occupation and its herds of settlers, which seek to destroy it in order to build their alleged Temple upon its ruins.
Dr. Al-Agha said in an announcement yesterday, marking the 42nd anniversary of the burning of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, that Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque are in danger, and that the Israeli occupation government is acting covertly to destroy it, through a series of excavations and tunnels in proximity to it and under its foundations; it also aspires to Judaize Jerusalem by expelling its Jerusalemite residents and isolating it from its Arab surroundings…
Dr. Al-Agha stated that the crime of setting fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, [perpetrated] by the extremist Jew Michael Dennis, on July 21, 1969, represents one of the foundations of the Israeli occupation strategy, as part of its racist plans to destroy the property of the Religious Trust and the Islamic and Christian religious heritage in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Palestine. This is meant to erase the spiritual and religious bonds represented by these places, in anticipation of Judaizing them and distancing them from their Palestinian and Arab environment."

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