PA official claims that a "Zionist gang" set fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969

Ibrahim Mudayris, Official, PA Ministry of Religious Trusts and Religious Affairs:
“"On this day the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque was subjected to the cursed fire by the treachery of the Zionist oppressors. On August 21, 1969, it was set afire by a Zionist gang. When the mosque burned, an old woman was prime minister of the Zionist Entity. Her name was Golda Meir. She controlled the Zionist Entity, and when she heard that a gang of Zionists dared to burn the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, she clapped her hands [in sorrow] and mourned the [bad luck] of Israel, for she assumed that the Muslims and Arabs would hurry instantly to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the hands of the Zionist Entity."
