the arson, apparently a re-
prisal for the arson in three
Christian institutions in West
Jerusalem.
The bookstore is located in
the Moslem quarter in the
Old City, a five-minute walk
to the Western Wall.
According to Jerusalem po-
ice, the arsonist broke the
store's window through a
decorated iron gate in front
of the store, and after spill-
ing kerosine through the door,
threw a match into the store.
The place was set afire,
but a passerby who noticed
the blaze quickly alerted fire-
men. The damage was rel-
atively small, except for soot
and ashes which covered
the walls, floors and ceiling.

Pastor Robert Lindsay,
head of the Baptist Center in
West Jerusalem which was
one of the places set on fire
last week, also expressed his
regret at this last case of
arson.
The city and the religious
ministry already promised
the owner o f the Jewish
