Our “friends” the Saudis. Beasts, all of them.
A Saudi royal has offered $900,000 to any Palestinian who can take an Israeli soldier hostage, fuelling Arab-Israeli tensions in the wake of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange.
Prince Khaled bin Talal announced the bounty during a telephone conversation on the Kingdom’s Daleel TV channel on Saturday, adding to the $100,000 reward already pledged by Saudi cleric Awad al-Qarani.
“I tell Sheik al-Qarani that I support you and I will pay $900,000 to make it one million dollars to capture an Israeli soldier to release other prisoners,” said Prince Khaled, who is a member of the Saudi royal family but holds no government position.
