Saturday, 10 October 2020_In yet another indication of Saudi Arabia’s shifting public discourse on Israel, Saudi writer Mohammed al-Saaed has attacked Palestinians, their cause as well as resistance groups, calling them “enemies” of the ultra-conservative kingdom.

Saaed, in an article published in the Arabic-language Okaz daily newspaper, alleged that Palestinians have aligned themselves with Qatar, Turkey and Iran and have turned into “puppets in the hands of Doha, Ankara and Tehran.”

“Palestinian people have used organized terrorism against most Arab countries, and used their guns and bombs against Arab nations,” he went on to claim.

Saaed added, “Palestinian people have fought against Arab armies and security services for the past six decades, and have confronted Arabs more than they have stood up against Israel and its security services.”

The Saudi writer also mocked the resistance of Palestinian people, saying that their alleged terrorist operations against consulates, embassies and assassinations of Saudi personalities should not be forgotten.

Saaed concluded by asserting that Palestinian people have taken a hostile stance against Saudi leaders.

“Saudi Arabia only intends to end their (Palestinian people’s) persecution. Palestinians should know that the Saudi public opinion can no longer tolerate such harassments and insults,” he claimed.

Saeed’s vile comments against Palestinians came only a few days after Saudi Arabia's former intelligence chief and ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, viciously attacked Palestinians and their cause.
