Saudi Prince Rejects Normalization Deals with Israel

JEDDAH: – Former Saudi intelligence chief Prince, Turki al-Faisal, has said US President Donald Trump is not an honest broker between the Arab world and Israel.
Speaking to US business news channel CNBC on Wednesday night from Jeddah, Faisal said his father, King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz, was “disappointed” by the deal the UAE and Bahrain signed with Israel without finding a solution to the question of Palestine.
“I have to say that President Trump was not such an honest go-between. So yes, I think the late king would have been disappointed,” he said.
The Saudi prince, who was the head of Al Mukhabarat Al Ammah, the Saudi intelligence agency, and later envoy from the country to the United Kingdom and the United States, pointed out that his father had imposed oil sanctions against Washington in the past to force world power to “be an honest broker between Israel and the Arab world.”
King Faisal, who ruled Saudi Arabia from 1964 to 1975, is known to have imposed oil sanctions after the US decision to increase aid to Israel during the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
Immediately, there was no comment from the White House on Prince Faisal’s statement, according to CNBC.
On September 15, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed US-brokered normalization agreements with Israel at the White House, ignoring Palestinian rejection.
