PA daily: Israel participated in 1969 Al-Aqsa Mosque arson, and is still attacking it
Headline: "On the 46th anniversary of its being set on fire, Al-Aqsa is being targeted, and the crimes against it follow one after the other"
"On Aug. 21, 1969, an extremist named Denis Michael (i.e., Michael Rohan), who adopted the extreme Zionist way of thinking, set the Al-Qibli Mosque (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque) on the Al-Aqsa plaza on fire, and the fire destroyed important parts of it... The residents of Jerusalem remember that on the same day the occupation stopped the water to the area around the Mosque and delayed the fire trucks of the Jerusalem Municipality, under its authority, so they would not participate in extinguishing the fire. However, the Arab fire trucks from Hebron and Ramallah arrived before them and helped extinguish the fire. This memorial day comes as the Al-Aqsa Mosque is under crazy ongoing Judaization attacks and ongoing pollution, and racist, hooligan invasions by the extremist Jewish parties and groups, together with Israeli attempts to divide the Mosque [between Jews and Muslims] according to areas and times."

Notes: Michael Denis William Rohan - deranged Australian Christian who set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969. For years, the Palestinian Authority has falsely accused Israel of setting the fire.
The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion."
The physical division and division according to time refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to implement separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews at the site.
