Saudi King rightly rolls back MBS

The Saudi King, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, rolls back the designated heir to the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), over the Palestinians' right of return and more.

Palestinian officials told Reuters in December that Prince Mohammed, known as MbS, had pressed Abbas to support the U.S. plan despite concerns it offered the Palestinians limited self-government inside disconnected patches of the occupied West Bank, with no right of return for refugees displaced by the Arab-Israeli wars of 1948 and 1967.

Such a plan would diverge from the Arab Peace Initiative drawn up by Saudi Arabia in 2002 in which Arab nations offered Israel normal ties in return for a statehood deal with the Palestinians and full Israeli withdrawal from territory captured in 1967.

MBS has appeared to completely back the Zionist/neocon position:

Diplomats in the region say Washington's current thinking, conveyed during a tour last month by top White House officials, does not include Arab East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state, a right of return for refugees or a freeze of Israeli settlements in lands claimed by the Palestinians.

It's dead on arrival.

The Palestinians have international law on their side. They have the full right of return, regardless of what the right-wing Zionists think. The US Trump administration is shameful for not backing that law. Palestine-Israel requires full-and-unified democracy to strive. Anything else is doomed.
