Contention of Nation Building for 'Palestinians' Cannot be Resolved in KSA any More than in Jordan or Israel

in response to reader comment: I am a long proponent of building a nation for the (so called) Palestinians in KSA

What is really needed for the quelling of Middle Eastern contentions about the 'Palestinian' issue is for all parties to recognize that what was started by the west in attempting to partition the former Ottoman territories into Arab tribal divisions and also insert a place for the Israeli European refugees was an effort in futility; for the antipathies of the ages were never in more so contentious tones of hatred as they are shown to be now. Even in the perception that some moderation shown in the Abraham Accords is limited not all potential parties are in synch with allowing any quarter for Israel to share in the proportional division, that the loudest voices of the minority will never be quelled for the lack of common Quranic consent; Shiite or Sunni enmities notwithstanding. All expect others to be condescending to the 'Arab right of return,' to another's territories.
Outstanding to all of tha Arab contentions are the endeavors of the non-Arab ambitions of the Iranian Islamic Regime's efforts to disrrupt Israel and even further, the more irrational Turkish interjection of regaining Ottoman caliphate control; or at least influences over the Middle East. As much as the 'Palestinian' issue is a tool for nation building, its establishment is not necessarily that objective or goal.
Israel remains the sticking point.
