Report: Saudi Crown Prince Meets Senior Israeli Officials in Egypt, Discuss Future Ties


Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman met with senior Israeli officials during his visit to Egypt this week, the London-based Arab newspaper Al-Araby Al-Jadeed reported on Wednesday.

The report said the meeting focused on the normalization of ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and included the kingdom’s commitment to the “deal of the century,” the Middle East peace plan being devised by the Trump administration.

Within that framework, Israel would take part in the unprecedented real estate venture being sponsored by the Saudis in the Gulf of Aqaba.

Crown Prince Mohammed first announced plans for the 26,500-square-kilometer (10,230-square-mile) zone at an international investment conference in Riyadh last October.

Officials say public and private investment in the area is expected to reach $500 billion. The mega-city would be built on Saudi territory on the eastern shore of the Red Sea near the border with Jordan, and connect to Egypt across the gulf via a bridge running through the island of Tiran.

Known as Neom — from the Greek prefix neo (“new”) and first letter of the Arabic word mostaqbal (“future”) — the mega-city is being billed as “the world’s most ambitious project,” intended to become a transnational city and economic zone.

The crown prince’s stated objective for the project is to wean Saudi Arabia, the world’s top crude exporter, off oil revenues.

According to the report, the prince is also applying immense pressure behind the scenes on Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to be part of the American deal.

If an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is struck, the Saudis will reportedly be the beneficiaries of considerable US investments, among other things in the Neom project. In exchange, they will act as the American’s spearhead for implementing the peace agreement.




  1. New Message from Meir Yisroel

    Up until now we have had one incident after the other. Sometimes many incidents in one day or in one week, but still many people are in total denial, sound asleep, not willing to accept that the world as we know it is absolutely falling apart.

    I feel that in coming weeks will bring a very big shock to most of the world. I say most of the world
    because so many people are still so out of what is happening that they don’t even try to know what drastic changes have happened in the world since 9/11. However this week should bring a great truth to the world making it clear that the world as we know it, planet earth itself is in grave danger. Hopefully, these latest revelations will help many more people to realize that its time, with all their hearts and souls to come back totally to Hashem and His Torah.

    I feel that the events of the coming week will mark a turning point that will affect our lives very much if not directly then indirectly. Whatever it will be, it will shake up our complacency and put many people into panic and many into even stronger denial that will cause a frantic search for a way to survive. I only hope and pray that this search among the Yidden will bring them to Hakadosh Boruch Hu.

    We are very close to a total change in our every day reality and I beg and I plead, Am Yisroel if you know you are a Jew for sure come back to Hashem completely. If you need guidance to do this go directly to Hashem. He will provide everything for you to survive. He will give you spiritually and physically all the tools to get through this most difficult time and to be Zoche to greet Moshiach Tzidkainu. The only stipulation is that you have to do all of this with your whole heart and soul and not think that you can
    after these events go back to your old ways because you won’t be able to. Only Yidden that with all their hearts and souls want to come back to Hashem and want to do true Teshuva and educate their children in the ways of Hashem and want to accept totally Ol Malchus Shomayim will survive.

    It’s Coming! The Yom Hagadol Vihanorah. Better be ready! And never forget, there is
    only one G-D and He is The Hakol Yachol, the Ribbono Shel Olam, our Father our
    Everything and we Am Yisroel are His total servants, His Avdai Hashem and His Ovdai

    Remember clearly Ain Od Milvado, Boruch Shem K’vod Malchuso Li’olam Va’ed.
