Saudi prince Woos Israel to adopt Arab "peace" plan

Saudi prince Woos Israel to adopt Arab
Sun Jul 6, 2014 23:06:13

Former Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal has forwarded an official letter to the so-called “Israel Peace Conference,” urging the Israeli regime to adopt the “Arab peace initiative.”

Palestinian ‘Arab 48 Website’ reported on Sunday that al-Faisal also tried to lure the Israeli officials to accept the so-called Arab Peace Initiative by mentioning in the letter how the occupying regime can attain so much profits if it agrees to consider the initiative.

The Saudi “peace” proposal to the Tel Aviv regime comes as Israeli forces continue with their brutal campaign of bombing the besieged Gaza Strip and mass-arresting Palestinians in the West Bank and other occupied territories.

According to the website, the influential Saudi prince was wooing the Israeli regime in his letter, as he mentioned the name of Palestinian city of Hebron in both its Arabic and the Hebrew names.

Al-Faidal also voiced his readiness to visit al-Aqsa Mosque’s Western Wall and the Yad Vashem Museum which is considered as a memorial to the victims of “the Holocaust,” the Palestinian website noted.

“Imagine if I could fly directly from Riyadh to al-Quds. Imagine if I could ride a bus or a taxi to go to the Sakhra (Rock) Mosque or al-Aqsa Mosque,” the Saudi prince reportedly stated in the letter.

“Imagine the developments which would take place on the levels of trade, medicine, sciences and culture between the people,” al-Faisail said, adding: “I hope the efforts of the Peace Conference will lead to clarify the view of peace which can be achieved when the Arab initiative becomes a cornerstone.”

The Saudi prince also expressed optimism that he can “take part in such conference, and that the Israelis can also take part in similar meetings in Riyadh which tackle the possibility to work together in order to solve the controversial issues which we face.”

The letter comes at a time the Israeli regime has launched a violent crackdown on Palestinians, killing at least 12 of them and detaining many others.
