PA official: Israel behind 1969 Al-Aqsa Mosque arson

Headline: “The Islamic-Christian Council: 46 years since the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson, and the crime continues”
“The [PA] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places emphasized today [Aug. 19, 2015], on the 46th anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson, that the systematic crime continues against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of the sites that are holy to Islam and Christianity in occupied Jerusalem…
Secretary-General of the [Islamic-Christian] Council Hanna Issa said that the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson on August 21, 1969 is part of a large Judaization plan directed against Jerusalem as a whole, with no consideration for the sanctity of the sites that are holy to Islam and Christianity that are within it.”

The Al-Aqsa Mosque was set on fire in 1969 by Michael Rohan – a deranged Australian Christian. For years, the Palestinian Authority has falsely accused Israel of setting the fire.
