Did Dr. Pipes have any foreknowledge of this eventy?

Reader comment on item: Feeling Optimistic about Israel and the Emirates

Submitted by Jeffrey Sheff (United States), Aug 16, 2020 at 14:02

After his rather weak points in defense of "no on annexation," I wondered whether there were stronger reasons that he could not divulge for his views. Is it possible that he was made aware of the likelihood of the UAE or other important diplomatic event contingent on a non-annexation pledge?

Daniel Pipes replies:

I did not know this was coming.

However, I have kept expecting MbS to turn up suddenly in Jerusalem.
