PA TV program spreads libel that "Jews" were behind Al-Aqsa Mosque arson in 1969

PA TV program Houses of God showed footage of a fire in the Al-Aqsa Mosque:
PA TV narrator: "On August 21, 1969 AD, after East Jerusalem was occupied, one of the Jews set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque so that it would go up in flames. The fire completely destroyed its wooden platform, ornaments and southern sections."

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. This clip originally appeared on June 28 and was rebroadcast on Aug. 21, 2013.
