The significance of the marking lies in the attacking of the former head of Saudi intelligence and the kingdom’s former ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, the Palestinian leadership due to its rejection of the decision of two Gulf states to normalize relations with the Israeli entity.
In an interview with the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV, broadcast on Monday, Prince Bandar, the former secretary of the Saudi National Security Council, described Palestinian authorities ’criticism of the agreement as“ daring hybrid words, ”adding that it was unacceptable.
In the first part of the interview, which consists of three parts, he said: “The Palestine issue is a just one, but its lawyers are failing, and the Israeli case is an unfair one, but its lawyers are successful. This summarizes the events that have occurred in the seventy .. seventy-five years of the past.” Prince Bandar added, “There is also something in it that binds the historic Palestinian leaderships. They always bet on the losing side … and this has a price.”
The Palestinians fear that the normalization agreements will weaken the long-standing Arab position, which is known as the Arab initiative that calls for the Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories and acceptance of the establishment of a Palestinian state in exchange for normal relations with the Arab countries.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that the Palestinian leadership considered the UAE’s move a “betrayal.” Veteran Palestinian negotiator Hanan Ashrawi told Reuters that the agreement was a “complete abandonment” of the Palestinians.
The Israeli writer Jackie Khuji said, “Saudi Arabia is not in a hurry to join the vehicle of normalization and dissolve relations with” Israel “, and it knows the reason, because for the Arab country in the (Persian) Gulf that laid the basis for the” Arab initiative “, it is difficult to enter Allied with the Jews, at least for now. ”
“The procession of Arab countries that are working to melt relations with (Israel) raises a question: Why does Saudi Arabia not seem in a hurry to normalize, even though it is the arrowhead in a triangle that includes the Emirates?” Khogi, the Arab affairs editor for Israeli Military Radio, added in his article in Maariv newspaper. And Bahrain, and it was agreed to establish relations with “Israel” in close consultation with and approval of Saudi Arabia, and the royal family silently welcomed this rapprochement, but it is not in a hurry to join the Arab League. ”
A change in the Saudi rhetoric
Experts and diplomats believe that the Kingdom has begun to change its public rhetoric towards “Israel”, although it is not expected that Saudi Arabia will follow the example of its Gulf allies anytime soon.
However, Khuji has another opinion, as he explained, “The settlement between the Netanyahu government and the most important Arab regime in the (Persian) Gulf will confuse the cards with the balance of power in the region, because it will constitute a seal of Arab and Islamic approval of (Israel )’s right to exist, and it will deal a fatal blow to the dream of the state.” The Palestinians are within the 1967 borders, therefore, and for other reasons, it would be a big surprise if the Saudis say yes, because in this case the kingdom needs to turn its back on its initiative. ”
He explained, stressing that “while the UAE and Bahrain broke the rule of” land for settlement, “when they went towards” peace for peace, “Saudi Arabia, in order to follow this path, must break the shackles of the initiative it itself issued, and such a step will be seen in the Arab street as an unfortunate turn, He abandoned Al-Aqsa and the Palestinians, despite the Saudi king’s pride in the title of “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques,” so how will he abandon Jerusalem, which is ranked third in its sanctity, “meaning that the kingdom is caught in the ropes of political hypocrisy that may last for a long time until the ropes are gradually broken off.”
Godfather of first normalization
In an article entitled (The Normalization Origins of Lal Saud), the former Saudi ambassador to Washington, Bandar bin Sultan, communicated with the Jews of America, and opened the relationship further in the beginning of the nineties with the arrival of a Jewish delegation with Bandar to Riyadh to meet with King Fahd that included in its ranks members of the Zionist Likud Party (Kahanov mentions In his book the story of the visit in haste).
On June 28, the Times of Israel website published an article by Douglas Bloomfield, a former legal advisor to the Zionist organization AIPAC, titled “Secret Israeli-Saudi Military Deals,” in which Bloomfield links the arms deals Trump announced during his recent visit to Saudi Arabia and Tel Aviv’s likely benefit from The manufacturing process of Saudi weapons, which, he asserts, goes back decades. In 1981, the US Congress was discussing approving a deal to sell 5 AWACS aircraft to Saudi Arabia, in addition to developing equipment for F-15s that Riyadh had bought a year ago from the Americans.
Bloomfield says that Tel Aviv’s ambassador to Washington at the time, Ephraim Avron, secretly pressured members of Congress to pass the deal, despite the enemy’s prime minister, Menachem Begin ,’s announcement that he opposes Saudi Arabia selling advanced American weapons.
Bloomfield adds that during his visit in the fall of 1981 to the “Israeli Aircraft Industries” adjacent to “Ben Gurion” airport, he saw what astonished him. He confirms that he witnessed the manufacturing of additional fuel tanks for “F-15” planes bearing the “Saudi Royal Air Force” logo, which were intended for shipment to an address in “Talsa, Oklahoma” in the United States of America.
The writer says sarcastically: “While we were telling the US Congress that selling this weapon to the Saudis threatens the security of” Israel “, the Israelis themselves were making that weapon to sell it to the same Saudi enemy!”
Bloomfield continues, saying that the company “MacDonald Douglas” required the process of manufacturing these tanks for the “Israeli Aircraft Industries”, in addition to more operating systems for Saudi aircraft, and it continues to do so today with the knowledge and satisfaction of the Saudis, according to what a former director of the Israeli company confirmed to him. The above-mentioned.
