The 'Royal Grumbler' himself was born in the usurped land of the Hijaz.

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration

Submitted by M.D'Souza (United States), Jan 29, 2009 at 12:42

Why should Obama administration bow down to the threats of Prince Turki?

Turki has a history of Islamist radicalism & hot-headedness re. the Arab-Israeli conflict. He also has a bone to pick with the Hijazis.

Whenever Turki accuses Israel of usurping the ‘Palestinian' land, Israel should reproach him & his Najdi tribals (the Saudis) of usurping the land of Hijaz, where the mosques of Makkah & Madinah are located, in 1924. The Hashemites were the custodians of those 2 mosques.

When the Saudis usurped the land of Hijaz & occupied it, the British wanted to help the Hashemites. That's how the land that was allotted to the Jews in the Balfour Declaration (1917) had to be divided – the west of the Jordan River was settled for the Jews, whereas the east of the Jordan River was allotted to the Hashemites & the Arabs who were occupying the Land of Israel.

So the actual culprits of the Arab-Israeli conflict are the Saudis!!!
