When, 35 years ago to this day, Michael Dennis Rohan set fire to
Aqsa mosque, the Muslim response was vicious. Here is my account of the incident from


The Hidden Hand
Middle East Fears of Conspiracy

by Daniel Pipes
New York: St. Martin's Press, 1996
Paperback edition: St. Martin's Press, 1998

In The Hidden Hand, Daniel Pipes provides the first full -
length study of conspiracy theories in the Middle East, revealing the power of such theories in determining the political life of the region. Placing conspiracy theories in their historical context, Pipes shows how they have come to suffuse life in the Middle East - from the most private family conversations to the highest and most public levels of politics. He then proceeds to examine conspiracism as a partial explanation for much of the region's problems, including its record of political extremism, violence, and lack of modernization. Concluding with speculations about the future of conspiracism, Pipes makes a very strong case that conspiracy theories are key to understanding the often complicated
political culture of the Middle East.

Critics on The Hidden Hand

"It was original of Daniel Pipes, the editor of the Middle East Quarterly, to approach the Middle East by way of conspiracy theory, and The Hidden Hand contains much that illuminates, and sometimes supplants, the usual academic analyses of Mideast society and politics."
- David Pryce-Jones, The Wall Street Journal, December 26, 1996
"The definitive book on conspiracy theories. … Daniel Pipes, in The Hidden Hand, truly makes history, in a primer on conspiracy theories which is at turns educational, very saddening, incredible, and totally uproarious."
- Peter Theroux, The Boston Book Review, January/February 1997
"Meticulously researched...the book is valuable in highlighting an aspect of Middle Eastern politics which has been previously ignored."
- Kevin Wein, Middle East Insight, November-December, 1998
"Pipes' indictment of conspiracy theories and their detrimental impact upon the Middle East is a persuasive one. His argument is clear and supported with extensive research. The book is highly readable and easily accessible to a reader unfamiliar with the region."
- Dov Waxman, SAIS Review: A Journal of International Affairs, Winter-Spring 1999





Allegations that the Zionists planned to do away with the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, the holiest Islamic shrine in Jerusalem, and replace it with the Third Temple inspired the Western Wall riots of 1929 and poisoned Arab-Jewish relations in Palestine.
Forty years later, the same issue gave birth to the
Organization of the Islamic Conference, the United Nations of Muslim countries.
In August 1969, a deranged Australian Christian by the name of Michael Dennis Rohan (which many Muslims turned into Cohen) set fire to that mosque. Though Israeli firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze and Rohan soon after confessed to setting it, Muslims around the world convinced themselves that the Israeli authorities had paid Rohan between $50,000 and $100 million to burn the mosque. Bellicose pronouncements echoed from all parts of the Middle East and rioting erupted in India, leading to widespread loss of life.
King Faysal of Saudi Arabia capitalized on these passions to convene 25 Muslim heads of state at a meeting in Rabat, Morocco. Out of that meeting came the OIC.
This ugly memory came back to mind today, as Jordan's official Petra news agency
of instigating the fire. Specifically, Petra says that a "radical Jew" had started the fire, Palestinians saved the mosque, and Raef Nijem, deputy chairman of Rebuilding Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock Committee, is quoted saying there is "crystal clear proof of [Israeli] compliance with [Rohan] in this ugly crime."

The Washington Times reports that Yuval Steinitz, chairman
of the Israeli Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee,
by calling it "an outrageous libel, … similar to the continued claims in the Arab world that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are genuine." Steinitz expressed disappointment that Jordanian officials again raised this falsehood. No good can come from reviving such calumnies. (August 21, 2004)

Aug. 26, 2004 update: Of course, the Palestinian Authority could not be far behind in brewing conspiracy theories about Israel.
choice excerpts from three commentators on Palestinian Authority Television along these lines.
June 28, 2005 update: And
the chorus, explaining in an article today that the Organization of the Islamic Conference was founded "following an attempt by Jewish hardliners to burn down Islam's third holiest site—Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque—which is also revered in Judaism." That added bit about Al-Aqsa being revered in Judaism adds a memorable touch, no?
July 6, 2005 update: It took eight days and prodding from the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), but AFP did the right thing and today sent out a correction to its original story: "following an attempt by an Australian member of the Protestant Church of God, Dennis Michael Rohan, to burn down Islam's third-holiest site."

Aug. 20, 2005 update: In what appears to be an annual rite leading up to the Aug. 21 anniversary, the PLO's new agency, WAFA, states todoay that "On 21 August 1969, a radical Jew following dawn prayers, when the mosque was free of worshippers, set fire to the al-Aqsa Mosque."

Aug. 21, 2005 update: David Ouellette points out that the Jordanian media again this year commemorate the 1969 fire by
ascribing it to "an attempt by Israeli extremists"; and the
maintains its reputation for
reckless disregard of the facts by ascribing it to "the Australian Zionist Denis Rohan."
