Israel Wants To Eradicate Palestinians, Saudi Minister Says

Israel is looking to eradicate the Palestinian people, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said at a meeting of Muslim ministers discussing the Gaza conflict Tuesday, calling the country’s actions “unprecedented brutality.” Prince Saud al-Faisal also said Israel would not survive as a nation without reaching a peace deal with the Palestinians. “Its goal is to eradicate the Palestinian presence even in its living and cultural expressions; seize territory; threaten Palestine as a whole; violate its mosques, churches and holy sites; and impose its hegemony on the region as a controlling, tyrant regional power,” Faisal said in a sharply worded statement at the start of a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Jeddah. Though the kingdom has been reported to be quietly working with Jerusalem to help sideline Hamas and its patrons’ influence in the region, Faisal said Israel, and not Hamas, was the terrorist group. “Israel wants to destroy and kill an entire population so that it can steal more land,” he said. “Israel does not have the right to self-defense as an occupier.”
