Recognizing Israel would give Iran, Qatar and Saudi Arabia a chance to kill
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, like the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, flatly refused to recognize Israel. Haiim Saban, an American-born Israeli billionaire , made this claim in an exclusive interview with the Israeli newspaper Harris. Saban says Prince Mohammed bin Salman fears that if Saudi Arabia recognizes Israel, Iran, Qatar and the Saudi people will have a chance to assassinate him. The Israeli billionaire also attended the UAE, Bahrain and Israel peace agreement ceremony at the White House on September 15. He added that Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz was opposed to recognizing Israel and wanted to implement the Arab-Israeli peace plan agreed in 2002 in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. Saban added that religious circles have a strong influence on the Saudi people, while recognizing Israel could jeopardize Saudi Arabia’s monopoly on the Holy Shrines and its reputation in the Islamic world. It may be recalled that the United Arab Emirates had announced a peace agreement with Israel on August 13 and Bahrain on September 11 and the two countries had signed the agreement on September 15 at the White House. Following the agreement, the number of Arab states recognizing Israel has risen to four, followed by Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.
