The Saudi regime, through its mercenaries, is gradually imposing normalization with Israel by exchanging controversial visits aimed at preparing the ground for bringing the secret normalization relations decades ago.
And the “Israel in Arabic” account of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs celebrated a second Saudi citizen, Abdul Razzaq Al-Qawsi, who visited Israel publicly with unannounced instructions from the Al Saud family.
Al-Qawsi said in an interview from Riyadh with the Israeli channel reporter, Roi Kayes: “At first I had a fear of visiting Israel and thought that the Israeli people are military, but when I got there I realized that this is not true. There is a change in the vision of many people in Arab countries. We want peace between the Arabs and Israel. The process of normalization has already begun.”
The Saudi regime is silent on the escalating manifestations of normalization with Israel from media outlets that raise speculation that it is being deliberately pushed to pave the way for the imposition of normalization on Saudi society as a fait accompli.
Recently, the manifestations of normalization reached the point of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to a controversial blogger from the Kingdom that he wished he could vote in the elections for the Likud leadership.
From within his campaign headquarters, Netanyahu, blogger Mohammed Saud, joked, in a video chat, jokingly, “A loss that you cannot vote,” according to the Israeli (official) Kan channel.
Saud had previously sparked widespread controversy last July, after his visit to Israel, as part of a media delegation from Arab countries, some of which do not have diplomatic ties with Israel.
During his wandering in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem at the time, Saud was subjected to a barrage of insults and spitting by Palestinian youths who called him “Zionist”, while a group of worshipers prevented him from entering the mosque.
The guests told the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee: “The visit to Israel is like a dream tour. We hope we can bring hundreds of people from our countries to Israel so they can see what we see and feel what we feel here.”
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs described the Palestinians’ objection to the Saudi blogger at that time as “brutal and immoral behavior.”
On more than one occasion, Saud expressed his love for Israel and his support for Netanyahu. The Riyadh authorities did not express any objection to Saud’s behavior.
And the “Israel in Arabic” account of the Israeli Foreign Ministry quoted a Saudi blogger as saying to the Israeli Army Radio, “The Israeli people are like us, and they are like my family.” I love this country, and it has always been my dream to visit Jerusalem.”
Officially, there are no diplomatic relations between the Kingdom and Israel, but the past few years have witnessed a great rapprochement between them, with the payment of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Early this month, the Israel-Arabic page of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs published pictures showing a Jew’s visit to the Kingdom, confirming that this was “the result of breaking the barriers of doubt built on for decades.”
And the Israeli media, including the official broadcasting organization, transmitted the video clips, indicating that the visit was carried out by two Jews, whom they did not name, while the pictures published by Israel in Arabic show that they took a tour in which he took a picture near the Kingdom Tower, one of the most important features of the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
In pictures, Israel said in Arabic: “In pictures … a Jewish tourist visited Saudi Arabia recently and was warmly welcomed by the Saudi population.”
In a separate tweet, and commenting on a video of the visit, Israel said in Arabic: “We are pleased to see the Saudi Mohsaud08 host who visited us celebrating his guests from Israel. There is no doubt that this is the result of breaking the barriers of doubt that have been built for decades. It is said that the capacity in the hearts and, God willing, more meetings and acquaintance, and we welcome everyone in our homes. And God perpetuates generosity.”
In parallel to the aggressive policies adopted by the occupying power, Israel has been keen to highlight potential prospects for cooperation with Arab countries with which it does not have diplomatic relations, on the one hand, and to reveal the existence of high-level security coordination and intelligence cooperation with a number of Arab countries in the Gulf.
Most notable was the disclosure of Israeli intelligence cooperation with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate of Oman and Bahrain in the Gulf, as well as the initiation of diplomatic ties.
Saudi activity has emerged in international forums, focusing on the common threat posed by Iran, as well as the silence on the visit of Saudi delegations to Israel, and the meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
