Israeli-Arab MP promotes libel that Israel set fire to Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969

"Head of the Islamic Movement [and Israeli MP for the United Arab List], Sheikh Ibrahim Sarsur has demanded that the day on which the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque was set on fire, every year on Aug. 21, be declared a global day for aiding the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
He said: 'The time has come for Muslims, free people and those who desire peace and stability in the world to take a brave step forward in the project of the liberation of Jerusalem and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, by announcing the day Israel set fire to Al-Aqsa as a global day of supporting the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. This would mean announcing an entire project for rescuing it from the Israeli occupation and its crimes.'
He added: '...Several people lit this ominous fire, not only Michael Denis Rohan who was exposed and arrested and said to hold Australian citizenship. Since that day, he has disappeared without a trace and the case was closed in order to hide the facts. He was claimed to be deranged, since the plots against the Al-Aqsa Mosque come one after the other since that day and to the present day.'"

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.
