Palestinians left wondering as Saudi paper takes Netanyahu’s side

A Saudi newspaper editorial that took issue with Palestinians for not responding positively to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation last week to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to address the Knesset has touched off surprise and criticism from Palestinian leaders.

‘’Whoever wrote this editorial is totally unaware of the reality of this so-called invitation,’’ said PLO spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi. “It is a very obvious public relations trick that’s been overused. If Netanyahu wants peace, let him abide by the requirements of international law, the two-state solution and the 1967 boundaries.’’

    The Saudis are starting to make tentative steps (prepare their people) to make some type of agreement/recognition of Israel as they realize that Iran and the Shias are more of a threat than the Jews. Watch how fast the Fatah governed Palestinians (Judea and Samaria) start cozying up to Iran as they seek a new teat to suck.

    The so-called Palestinians are worthless rabble who have never honored a peace agreement. Israel should take back all the land that’s been ceded and to hell with what anyone says.

      That is why I hope and pray for a Trump victory. His Orthodox Jewish son-in-law will get him to give Israel the green light to do exactly that.
