Accept US deal or 'shut up'

Accept US deal or 'shut up'

He made clear the Palestinian issue was not a top priority for the Saudi government or Saudi public opinion and secondly he said that for Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries to normalise relations with Israel there will have to be significant progress on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Al-Jazeera, quoting Channel 10 news citing Israeli diplomatic wire, reported that during a closed-door meeting on March 27 in NY with the Jewish organisations' leaders, bin Salman harshly criticised Palestinian President Mehmoud Abbas.

The blunt comment from the next-in-line to the Saudi throne, made during a meeting with Jewish organizations in NY in March, comes as the Trump administration works to broker a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

The Palestinians should either accept the peace plan they are offered at the moment or "shut up" and "stop complaining," Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman reportedly told Jewish organizations in NY.

"For the past 40 years, the Palestinian leadership has missed opportunities again and again, and rejected all the offers it was given", the Saudi leader is said to have told the leaders in unprecedented remarks. "It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining", he reportedly said.

The show marked the latest chapter in Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's Vision 2030 initiative, which, among other aims, hopes to develop a domestic live entertainment industry in the conservative Islamic kingdom.

Channel 10 diplomatic correspondent Barak Ravid repored a source briefed on the MBS meeting in NY as saying that some of those in attendance "literally fell off their chairs".

An official statement from the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C. on the March 27 meeting offered a less fiery recap.

A Saudi Arabian court began the trial of two Jordanians accused of spying against the kingdom for Israel's Mossad intelligence agency, Saudi-owned al-Arabiya said on Monday.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the heir apparent to the Saudi throne, made the remark during a closed-door meeting with heads of Jewish organizations in NY on March 27, Barak Ravid, a diplomatic correspondent with Israel's Channel 10, wrote on the Axios website.

In recent months, bin Salman has reportedly pressured Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to accept a much-anticipated Trump administration peace proposal.
