A rare meeting took place on Sunday between a member of the Saudi royal family and Israeli officials, reports NRG/Maariv.
The meeting took place at the World Policy Conference in Monaco, where Prince Turki Al-Faisal, former head of the Saudi secret services and formerly his countrys ambassador to the United States, met MK Meir Sheetrit (Hatnua) and Itamar Rabinovich, formerly Israels ambassador to the U.S.
According to NRG/Maariv, the Saudi prince publicly shook hands with Rabinovich and held a discussion with MK Sheetrit.
The report said that Sheetrit invited the Saudi prince to address the Knesset, to which the prince replied that this would not be beneficial as long as Israel did not accept the Arab peace initiative. He called on Israel to accept the initiative so that details of its implementation can then be discussed.
NRG/Maariv further reported that Prince Turki Al-Faisal lauded the efforts being made by Secretary of State John Kerry in promoting peace talks but, in a hint of criticism against the administration in Washington, said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas need patronage from a responsible third party and expressed doubts that President Barack Obama could be that responsible party.
On the Syrian issue the prince ridiculed President Obama who set red lines which in time became pink lines which then completely blurred out.

shit for shat
Everybody in the world sees that we have a pretender as POTUS except the US MSM.
You’ll begin to see new alliances now that Barry has sold our Middle East allies down the river with the nuclear deal.
Maybe he’s the smart one.
......make no mistake, in the coming fight with Iran, the Saudi terrorists and sponsors of 911 that killed 3,000 of us, know full well that they have no warriors amongst their low DNA and interbred citizenry!
Therefore, they KNOW they NEED the Israeli’s who have demonstrated over and over that they have plenty of them!
Two leftist greenies, even Israeli ones, buddying up to the Saudis doesn’t seem that odd to me.
I wonder as the Chinese become the big customer of mideast oil if they will impose order here in a way we didn’t.
Let the bombing BEGIN.
Wow, the next thing you know our president will shake hands with the leader of Cuba.
Not that curious. They’re getting ready to rain on Iran’s parade. Probably looking for some skirmish in the sea of Japan, or the possible impending collapse of North Korea to provide cover.
set red lines which in time became pink lines which then completely blurred out.
That they should do so publicly is what’s curious. The Saudis do not sit easy on their thrones. The Wahhabists they educated with their petrol money hate them. Shaking hands with an Israeli official in public might be just the pretext they need to sproing some Arab spring at them. The fact that they are taking this risk means that they are more scared of Iran than of the Wahhabists. But what compels them to take this risk? Israel would be happy to just fly over the Arabian Peninsula on their way to Iran and have the Saudis angrily waving their fists in the air to save face while in fact giving a furtive go-ahead to the flyover. I don’t see the cause for a public handshake. I do see the cause for a private agreement.
I dearly hope so. Got to write to Liberman about EMA.
Them ayrabs shore do have a way with werds.
And then he’ll bow down and kiss the ring of the Prince of Saudi Arabia.
Take away the referee (US) and both sides have to
learn to work things out together. The incompetent
POSPOTUS will be declared a foreign policy genius
by the POSMSM. What a world.
And the lion laid down with the lamb?
Dunno, it seems that they are saying they now hate Israel less than they hate Iran.
There you go...
Even that was mainly words. The Arab monarchies and republics have detested each other from the start. The only times they ever cooperated were during the wars with Israel. They couldn't even stick together during the oil embargo (FYI: Saddam Husein was the first to break it by selling oil to the US).
You should listen to Walid Shoebat. A few weeks ago he said something to the effect that the Iranians would attack Saudi Arabia before they’d attack Israel. I was wondering, reading the Scripture where it speaks of Saudi becoming a flaming tar pit, a place where only jackals would inhabit, as this would then be an end-times prophetic event come to pass. Iran is quickly getting ready for production of nuclear weapons, and our so-called treaty with them requires NADA on their part, limits nada in regards to their weapons production, and they recently pulled out, knowing that the Won will do nothing. This is getting more interesting as we see things unfold. I am no prophet, but look how things have escalated since the election of BHO. There is no doubt that we are soon to face the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, if we have not already entered that phase.
“Politics makes strange bedfellows.” was never truer. Now though, it might be more accurate to say “survival” rather than “politics”.
Saudi Arabia already is a desolate tar pit that only jackals inhabit. But they probably would blow up Mecca, too, which would be an improvement.
China stepping in would be a big improvement. Sure, they have aspirations of world conquest, too, just like the Muzzies. But the Chinese are at least civilized and have the habits of civilized people.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
The Saudis may want to ensure that Mecca is not one of Israel’s targets.
The Obama/Hagel regime may have to choose between Muslim Brotherhood / Ayatollahs / Al Qaida on one side and Netanyahu / Royal Saudis / Defenders of Christianity in Egypt on the other. It’s sad that we have to wonder what side Obama would come down on.
Since among Arabs it’s brother against brother, brothers against father, the family against the clan, the clan against the tribe, Qys tribes against Yemen tribes, and the Arabs against the world, everybody is their enemy and the enemy of their enemy, so the world is their friend for being their enemy.
Don’t need Walid Shoebat for that. The Iranians made a public spectacle of it. Said so themselves that the first thing they’re gonna do when they acquire nuclear weapons is to blow the Saudi oil fields up. It’s not for nothing the Saudis have made arrangements with Pakistan for their ownnuclear weapons to dissuade the Shi’ite horde.
Timing’s interesting on finally exposing the Saudis for their part in 9/11?
It’s almost like we’re standing with Iran... just the timing... I do believe the Sauds were in on it all alone.
from the link:
The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly found incontrovertible evidence that Saudi government officials not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom helped the hijackers both financially and logistically.
I’m sure these “journalists” will “uncover” evidence that the Saudis were behind the Iranian seizure of the US embassy in Teheran if that’s what Zero and company want.
