Saudi Crown Prince Acknowledges Israel’s Right to Exist, Says Iranian Ayatollah ‘Makes Hitler Look Good’

MIn an interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg that was published on Monday, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — currently in the midst of a two-week visit to the US — acknowledged Israel’s right to exist.

“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation,” the 32-year-old Saudi royal said. “I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations.”

Asked about antisemitism in his country, Prince Mohammed stated, “Our country doesn’t have a problem with Jews. Our Prophet Muhammad married a Jewish woman. Not just a friend — he married her. Our prophet, his neighbors were Jewish. You will find a lot of Jews in Saudi Arabia coming from America, coming from Europe. There are no problems between Christians and Muslims and Jews. We have problems like you would find anywhere in the world, among some people. But the normal sort of problems.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
