Is Saudi Arabia being lined up by the US to broker talks between Israel and Palestine for a two-state solution?

Recent events are all feeding into conspiracy stories which say that the Saudis have been in on the Jerusalem plan from day one

  • The writing was on the wall when Donald Trump became the first US president to visit the Middle East on his maiden voyage overseaOne place it most certainly did not go unnoticed was on Arab Street, which always views with suspicion one of its own cosying up to Washington.

    Many saw his decision to sign arms agreements worth £82bn with Saudi Arabia as a tell-tale sign of what the man who wrote The Art of Deal was up to.

    So when Trump provoked worldwide anger by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, people began to put two and two together.

  • As Abraham Lincoln famously said: “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time”.

    As if to demonstrate this, a huge flag was unfurled at a pro-Palestinian protest this week showing a face which was half-Trump and half-Salman, the Saudi king.

    Underneath the caption read: “Two faces of same coin.”

    When they saw the banner at a football match in Algeria, the Saudis were predictably furious. Sami bin Abdullah al-Saleh, the Saudi Ambassador to Algeria, talked about his country’s “annoyance” with the image, saying: “We will look into the authenticity of this image and take the appropriate response.”

    @GoFriita simply said: “Who grants the US money each year? Is it us or you? You are the sickness of Muslims and the reason Palestine is the way it is.”

    Since 6 December when Trump announced the US Embassy would be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the Saudis have done little to allay these suspicions of the Arab people.

    As if just paying lip service, Riyadh called the Trump decision “unjustified and irresponsible”, but did very little to follow it up.

    When Turkey announced a summit of Islamic countries to pass resolutions against the announcement, most Muslim countries sent their leaders to represent them.

  1. If Saudi do not follow Trump strategy. The King of Saudi will be finished— Saudi want 100 percent USA protection to face the big threat from the extremist extremist Syiah.
    Saudi army do not know how to win the battle with Iran. They are the leaziest people in the world. Inproductive hands. They know how to spread the ancient Islamic laws to the world. ( wahhabi) , and how to build more mosque in the world. That is it!

    Saudi needs protection badly from USA.
