Sign of the times?

Saudi journalist urges Palestinians to make peace with Israel. As I said above , it is now in the Saudi interest to make an alliance with Israel against the common enemy, Iran. To do that, Saudi Arabia wants Palestine to make peace with Israel so as to dull any domestic backlash. Remember that Isra...
