MBS Ratifies «Israeli» Settlements, Soon to Recognize Quds as «Capital»
In a move not distant from the foolish Crown Prince, it seems that the heir to the Saudi throne is willing to put the "Israeli" entity's interests before the Middle Eastern ones, notably the Palestinian Cause.
The New Yorker published a report at large titled "A Saudi Prince's Quest to Remake the Middle East" which sheds light on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's [MBS] settlement plan in the Middle East.
The plan included a Saudi recognition of the "Israeli" settlements in the occupied West Bank - which are internationally considered illegal - as well as al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the so-called capital of the entity.
According to the report, MBS's plan came after Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and former senior White House adviser - paid in late October, an unpublicized visit to the crown prince, his third trip to the kingdom since the election.
According to a former Obama Administration official, the Saudis presented a plan that was radically favorable to "Israel", the report stated.
It would recognize the "Israeli" entity's claims to al-Quds [Jerusalem] and ratify nearly all of its settlements in the occupied West Bank, offering the Palestinians only limited autonomy in areas under their control.
The report pointed out that the Trump administration saw in MBS a central player in the Middle East, vouching him support to reach a solution to the Palestinian-"Israeli" conmflict.
