Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman (MBS) has said that the Palestinians must “shut up” or make peace with the Israeli occupation, which has been slaughtering them for over 70 years.
During a meeting with American Jewish organisations in New York last month, MBS claimed: “In the last several decades the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all the peace proposals it was given.”
Speaking to the Jewish organizations, he added: “It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining.”
He also said that the Palestinian issue was not a priority for the Saudi government, which “has much more urgent and important issues to deal with” like Iran.
MBS also urged Israel and the Palestinians to advance peace talks in order to pave the way for his country and other Gulf countries to normalise relations with Israel.
Saudi Arabia and Israel have grown increasingly close in the past few years, as both countries are allegedly concerned about the claimed threat of Iran and its allies in the region.
During his American tour, MBS told “60 Minutes” that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was “very much like Hitler.” He also told The Atlantic that Jews “have the right to own the land of Palestine.”
