TV: Saudi crown prince blasts Abbas, says Palestinians must stop ‘complaining’

According to Channel 10, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman tells American Jewish leaders the Palestinians must accept the peace offers presented to them or “be quiet and stop complaining.”

The Palestinian leadership, over the past four decades, has “squandered opportunities again and again” to reach a peace deal, he is quoted as saying.

The report quotes Salman as saying the Palestinian issue was not pressing for the kingdom, citing the threat of Iran as a far more urgent matter.

“Nonetheless, there must be diplomatic progress between Israel and the Palestinians for us to agree to a normalization of ties [with Israel],” the Saudi crown prince is quoted as saying.

The comments were made in a meeting in New York with US Jewish leaders in late March, according to the report.
