An interesting video has emerged showing what appears to be flames flickering inside the Al Aqsa Mosque where rioters had barricaded themselves on Sunday:
The Arabic news reports on this blame Israeli forces for the fire.
But as we have seen, the rioters inside the "third holiest place in Islam" routinely shoot firebombs and fireworks. In this video you can see some of them launching fireworks from outside the mosque before they barricaded themselves on that same day.
If there had been a fire as large as it appears in this video that could be blamed on Israel, you would expect by now that the Arab and Muslim media would be making this into a huge deal. But since Sunday I have seen nothing about a fire at Al Aqsa.
My guess is that some Muslim fireworks (or Molotov cocktails) ignited something inside the "holy spot" and it was decided that this is not something that they want to publicize because most people would realize that Israeli riot control weapons are not likely to have caused the blaze.
