    Turkey/Iran/Hamas/Hizbullah reacted with "Practical Steps" taken against the trump decision. For example Turkey said ending of ties with Israel, and others calling for Resistance and rise of Intefada.

    But how Saudi reacted?


    Very interesting point is that it is fully "EMPTY" of any "practical step" from the "State of Saudia" against the Trump decision.

    At maximum, it says that the transfer will make the people angry on the road, or State of Saudia disagree with it.

    But most important question is, where are the "PRACTICAL" steps against this injustice?

    They want to distance away and bury thorny issues.
    Palestinians carry no benefit for Saudia, other than a drag on its finances and political cost as Palestineans have always favored anti-Saudi factions such as Houtis and Saddam..so a good advice is to never put your food in your own mouth..

    Hamas, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, etc.... none of them have done anything on the ground. Only ordinary Palestinian civilians have been demonstrating on the ground in occupied territories. Maybe Hamas armed wing get involved later but that's it. So see no point in this thread , OP. No one can do much and no one know how to handle this situation.

    If Saudia thinks so, then why not to openly say hell with Palestine, I am with Israel? Why then to do the drama of being "Khadim-e-Harmain Sharifain" and leader of the Muslim Ummah, and hero of the Arab affairs? This hypocrisy makes Saudia's role more hateful.

    Yes, a "LOT" could not be done, but for sure "something" could be done.
    Remember, something is always better than nothing.
    Showing intention of practically taking at least some actions is for sure much better than "nothing" of Saudia.
    Why Hamas is still with Iran? While Hamas knows that Iran practically helped them. It may be little, it may not be enough, but still it was something.

    The role of Saudia is counter productive.

    Just watch it.



    So what to talk about the practical steps against Trump, here is Saudia taking practical steps "in favour" of Trump.

    My point still stands. You really need to stop making this about Saudi Arabia, my friend. Let us all focus on the topic.

    And I am not disappointed, I don't see any nation able to act on it's own, they are all facing struggles of their own. All we want is moral and diplomatic support. And if possible end to conflicts in region.

    Actually Saudi Arabia CAN do a lot! Just a call to any/all Islamic countries to unite for Jerusalem, bury differences, starting boycotts can make an impact.

    Unfortunately, the rulers of KSA are Iran obsessed--for self preservation only. Not that Iran is a saint by any means.

    Ever wonder why Europe acts so much in unison when non-European countries are involved? For example, what was Poland's business in bringing Freedom and Democracy to Iraq in 2003?

    Boycotting Israel and boycotting US does come under the moral and diplomatic support.

    But the following strategy of Saudia comes under the definition of "Encouraging" and "Supporting" the enemy.



    I am afraid that Israeli mood is totally different. They are not going to end this conflict till the comprehensively humiliated the Palestinians and usurped the whole land.

    Very limited population of Israel want to give respective right to the Palestinians. Majority has now the love for illegal settlements.

    A peaceful Intefada is the only way forward. Such peaceful Intefada should take place all over the world.

    Saudia Arabia exposed. Watch how the apologists are going make excuses for KSA. Trump? Saudia will reward him with $100billions in defence contracts.

    The main question is how can Saudis help Palestine. The question is not what are they doing. The main question is Can they do anything?

    Trump is not going to back out from his decision and Saudis have lost their influence in the area. Most of the countries that align with Saudia have just came out of Arab Spring the main 2 countries that were the main defense for Palestine were Libya and Syria. Libya is under NATO occupation and Syria is fighting a civil war. Saudis are just lip service and they are doing that. Saudia has only one effective channel that is oil embargo on USA and Saudis currently need that oil money more than USA needs oil. Only way forward is for the distance Islamic nations to move up like Pakistan Turkey Malaysia Indonesia. Iran is already in the front place to fight Israel but rest need to join in.

    Cancel the $100,000,000,000 defence contract. Instead make Pak/Saudia military alliance. Pak Army posted to KSA to defend it. Watch Trump cry !!!
