Golda laughed about the burning of Al-Aqsa

Dr. Ismail Radwan, lecturer at the Islamic University of Gaza:
 "The incident of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the burning of the Sallh [Al-Din] podium remind us of what Golda Meir did, Allah's curse be upon her, when she cried on the first day of the burning of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and laughed on the next. When asked about it she said, 'I cried on the first day fearing that the Muslims will act, in fear of a worldwide Muslim action for Al-Aqsa. But when the Muslims did not act, and all I heard the next day were calls of condemnation, I laughed about it.'" [Note: One of many fictitious accounts of Golda Meir's reaction to the fire broadcast on PA TV.]
