    (July 1, 1941- )
    Born in Australia
    Attempted to set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque (August 21, 1969)
    Later arrested, tried, found to be insane when he committed the arson, sent to a mental asylum, and deported (August 23, 1969)
    His first and second names are sometimes switched together.
    He called himself ‘the Lord’s emissary’ and justified the arson by saying that doing so would help the Jews rebuild Temple Mount and in the process hasten Christ’s second coming.
    The historic minbar (pulpit) of Saladin was destroyed in the arson.
    Even though he is a Christian, the Arabs were so ticked off at the arson that they called him ‘Jewish’ and accused the Israeli government of collaborating with him.
    The Soviet government exploited the incident by plotting to incite an anti-Israeli riot in India (August 28, 1969).
    Hamas conducted a terrorist attack that killed 18 Israelis in Jerusalem in retaliation for the arson (August 21, 2003).
    Contrary to the accusations, the Israeli government tried to extinguish the fire, but was hampered by Palestinians who accused its fire trucks of containing gasoline to spread the fire.
    Even Prime Minister Golda Meir sent condolences to the Arabs rather than laughing at them.
    The arson resulted in the creation of the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
