PA Libel: "Jews of high position" planned Al-Aqsa Mosque ‎arson in in 1969‎
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Aug. 21, 2017

 


Documentary narrator:
"From investigations conducted by the Islamic Council it ‎became clear that there was more than one perpetrator [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson ‎in 1969] and that the fire was planned by senior Jews of high position, especially since ‎the roof can only be reached from a wooden spiral staircase located outside the Al-‎Aqsa building. This proves that careful, premeditated measures were taken to ‎completely destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The proof is that the occupation authorities ‎were slow to extinguish [the fire] and that the water supply to the Sanctuary (i.e., the ‎Temple Mount) had been cut off during those hours." ‎
