Arab newspapers are still highlighting the interview conducted by the former Saudi ambassador to Washington and former Secretary of the National Security Council Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz with Al-Arabiya, which was presented in three parts.

During the interview, Prince Bandar criticized the Palestinian leaderships and presented his country’s attempts to find a solution to the Palestinian issue.

A team of writers said that Bandar, by virtue of his diplomatic work in Washington, is trying to gain “satisfaction” for his country from the United States through normalization with Israel.

While another team denied these charges against Bandar, and talked about his attempts to find a solution to the Palestinian issue, using his “proximity and relations with decision makers in the United States of America.”

Offering the signs of obedience

Abdel Bari Atwan asks in the London-based newspaper Rai Al-Youm, saying: “We ask Prince Bandar a final question, which is: We are separating the Palestinian leadership from its people, is it allowed for us, or for any Saudi citizen, to separate the Saudi leadership from its people, and what gives him the right to insult this leadership In the way he insulted the Palestinian leadership, and who is responsible as a prominent member of the ruling family?

Atwan continues: “Can Prince Bandar allow anyone to criticize the disastrous decision taken by his leadership to go to war in Yemen, or to squander the wealth of current and future generations in this war, and to buy the consent of a racist and racist American president who hates Arabs and Muslims, named Donald , and spend hundreds of billions of dollars on Weapon deals have not ‘liberated’ Saada, which is a few kilometers from the southern Saudi border, let alone Sanaa? ”

Atwan concludes by saying: “The Palestinian leadership is a failure. Rather, it is embroiled in failure. We wish you, Your Highness the Prince, to tell us about the successes of your leadership, and may God help us.”

In the same context, the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper says in its editorial that Riyadh “sent a set of signals that not only strongly support the agreement, but rather suggest that the Kingdom will follow the same path of normalization in the appropriate time … and it seems that these signals were not sufficient or not satisfied.” The White House and the pressure groups working for the occupation state in the United States had to send another message. “

And the newspaper adds: “Who is more worthy of this task than Bandar bin Sultan, or ‘Bandar Bush’ as ​​the American press likes to call him because of his steadfast submission of obedience verses to Presidents George Bush, the father and son, during his 22 years as ambassador to the kingdom in Washington?”

And Al-Quds Al-Arabi continues: “The Palestinian leaderships, like all others in the history of the liberation movements, are not full-fledged descriptions nor are they of the type of angels, and that is why they made mistakes that the Palestinians themselves perceive before their Arab brothers or friends of their cause in the whole world. However, Bandar bin Sultan is quite difficult to find. Is heading for the role of an honest critic of these leaderships. “

“Man of diplomacy”

In an article entitled “Bandar”, Mamoun Fendi says in the London newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat: “So, as in the title, when you say the name abstractly in ‘Washington DC’, no one comes to mind in the capital of world politics except for one person, Bandar bin Sultan. And Washington, as I wrote about it in this newspaper from 2003, that is, seventeen years ago, is a cruel city that does not call anyone by his first name only, except for what is rare. “

Fendi continues: “It is not prudent to hunt some people in the talk of the prince, who worked a lot for the Palestinian cause … Perhaps all of us will remember that during his tenure as Saudi ambassador to the United States, he arranged for the late King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz to visit President George W. Bush’s farm, and then King Abdullah showed Bush videos showing the extent of the injustice inflicted on the Palestinians by the Israeli occupation force. It was a visit that had a strong resonance in the United States at the time.

ويضيف The writer: “In my article that I wrote here on Washington in 2003, I said that ‘from our Arab world I can count only three names that do not need to be mentioned, they left fingerprints or still, in order to skillfully use their tools and know some of the keys of the city.’ Today I say that the three are : Anwar Sadat, King Hussein, and Bandar Bin Sultan.

Likewise, Haila Al-Mashouh says in the Saudi newspaper Okaz: “They said that his statements at this time are a prelude to normalization with the State of Israel. They said that it was a case of hope after a decades-long bid, and they also said that his statements demonize the owners of the case, but Prince Bandar bin Sultan in fact did not He not only brings his statements from his political repository, which is overflowing with information, but has documented them with testimonies, people and official documents. “

Haila continues: “The man of diplomacy, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, was not a passing conversation even if it was directed at the sons and daughters of his country. Rather, he crossed borders and horizons in his influence and the interaction of the Arab peoples with his strength and the impact of this family, with a long history full of events and political positions, so he is one of those who carried On their shoulders are the Palestinian cause and find solutions to it, by virtue of his proximity and his relations with decision-makers in the United States of America.
