Saudi Arabia, Zionism, Peace and the Palestinian Cause

The attempts to destroy the Palestinian Cause have been on the drawing board of the Al Sauds alliance with Zionism and the West for at least 63 years.


Today, not only are they fighting against the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to resist occupation, they are doing everything in their power to prevent them from returning to their indigenous land in favour of Israel.
Established as a kingdom without an independent strategic plan or a sense of nationalism, Saudi Arabia has sought to destabilize Billad el-Cham*** in order to undermine the Palestinian cause in favour of Zionism and the West. Indeed, since the occupation of Palestine in 1948 the kingdom has persevered with it mission to strengthen Zionism by inciting disputes between rival groups. This has had the effect of destabilising the region so that Zionism and Israels occupation of the territory of Billad el-Cham continue, though Riyadh disguises its activities and policies under the banner of Islam, peace and its relationship with the West.

Today, the mission of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to strengthen Zionism continues, this being accomplished by undermining popular regional and national resistance movements, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, in order to destroy their confidence and their willingness to resist Israels Zionist projects. This paper seeks to shed light on Saudi efforts to undermine the Palestinian cause for the sake of Israel through the propagation of myths, by destroying all forms of resistance, and by instigating peace initiatives which it knows will ultimately be ineffective.

***The name Billad el-Cham generally referred to geographical Syria (Greater Syria or the Fertile Crescent). Geographical Syria extends from the Taurus Mountains in the north to the Sinai in the south, and between the Mediterranean in the west to the desert in the east. The present-day borders of Billad el-Cham are seen as illegitimate imperial divisions, imposed by the Anglo-French SykesPicot Agreement, the Turkish annexation of Alexandretta in 1939, and the creation of Israel in Palestine.
