Headline: "Mayor of Beitunia: 'The ramifications of setting the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] on fire are still being felt"
"Mayor of Betunia, Ribhi Dawla stated that the ramifications of the burning of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque 46 years ago are being felt to this day, in the shadow of the intensification of the settlers' attacks against our people and their property, the most recent being the burning of the Dawabsheh family in the village of Duma in the Nablus [district]. Dawla said in a statement to the press: 'The 46th anniversary of setting the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque on fire obligates everyone to strengthen the unity and stand up to stop the occupation's attacks and put an end to its aspirations: the destruction of the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the building of the alleged Temple in its place.'"

Note: 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.
Duma arson attack - On July 31, 2015, two Palestinian houses in the West Bank village of Duma were set afire by Molotov cocktails thrown through their windows. 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh was killed in this attack, his father, Saad Dawabsheh, died of injuries 8 days later, and his mother, Reham Dawabsheh, died of injuries 5 weeks later. Israeli leaders and citizens from all sectors of society condemned this attack, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas that all Israelis were disgusted by the crime, adding, “We will not countenance terrorism of any kind.” He ordered the security forces "to use all means at their disposal to apprehend the murderers and bring them to justice forthwith."
There is suspicion that this was a nationalist attack carried out by Jewish extremists in revenge for Palestinian terror attacks. However, the crime remains unsolved with no named suspects.
