Saudi Crown Prince: Palestinians must make peace or shut up

At a meeting with Jewish leaders in New York last month, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman castigated the Palestinian leadership for rejecting opportunities for peace with Israel for decades, and said they should either start accepting peace proposals or “shut up.”

Citing what it said were multiple sources, Israel’s Channel 10 News on Sunday night quoted what it said were remarks made by the crown prince at the meeting that left those who were present “staggered” by the ferocity of his criticism of the Palestinians.

“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 reportedly said.

“It’s about time that the Palestinians accept the offers, and agree to come to the negotiating table — or they should shut up and stop complaining,” he reportedly went on.

Prince Salman also told the US Jewish leaders that “the Palestinian issue is not at the top of the Saudi government’s agenda” and elaborated, “There are much more urgent and more important issues to deal with — such as Iran,” according to the TV report.

Nonetheless, the crown prince reportedly stressed that there would have to substantive progress toward an Israeli-Palestinian accord before the Saudis and other Arab states would deepen their relationships with Israel. “There needs to be significant progress toward an agreement with the Palestinians before it will be possible to advance negotiations between Saudi Arabia and the Arab world and Israel,” he was quoted saying.

  1. Who cares what a “saudi prince” has to say? The assisted in blowing up the WTC and bringing tyranny to our land.

  2. you want an exercise in futility? Name the last leader of palestine. was he a king, prime minister, president, sultan…? name a palestinian general and a war they were in. name the capitol of palestine..

    go to an ancient map web site and find a map more than 100 years old that shows palestine.

    the ancient nation of palestine is a lie told by lying liars. there never was a palestine. It’s a freaking roman name, what kind of moslem country would keep a roman name?

    palestine was an essentially uninhabited region of the ottoman empire.

    23 percent of the region was given to Israel. 77 percent went to Jordan. Here’s a hint: find Jordan on one of those ancient maps that does not show palestine. good luck with that.

    if you buy this BS you are obviously completely unaware of why the Romans went to Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Wars, the second siege of and the fall of Jerusalem, the diaspora, the Otoman empire and World War I and you vote Democrat.
