Iran, Russia, Turkey team up to hold sway in Syria-Presidents of the three countries, long seen as regional rivals rather than strategic allies, will meet in Ankara for their second summit-By Raziye AKKOC and Ezzedine SAID-TOI-3 April 2018
ANKARA, Turkey (AFP) — Iran, Russia and Turkey have teamed up to forge a strong if brittle tripartite alliance aimed at holding ascendancy in Syria, taking advantage of the West’s reluctance to engage militarily in the country.The presidents of the three countries, long seen as regional rivals rather than strategic allies, will meet Wednesday in Ankara for their second three-way summit on Syria in a striking demonstration of unity.This meeting, which follows the first tripartite summit between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Vladimir Putin of Russia, and Iran’s Hassan Rouhani in Sochi last November, comes with Turkey seeking a louder voice after launching an offensive against Kurdish militia inside Syria.US President Donald Trump has signaled that Washington will be withdrawing “very soon” from Syria, in a move that would cement the influence of Ankara, Moscow, and Tehran, who have all committed military forces to the ground.Sinan Ulgen, chairman of the Istanbul-based Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies think-tank, said the three countries had now become the true masters on the ground in Syria.Ulgen told AFP that the three have “been the regional powers that were willing to invest military resources to influence the outcome of the conflict.”The three countries last year launched a parallel peace process to the UN-backed talks in Geneva. The talks, based in Astana, have convened multiple times albeit without finding any breakthrough.“The Astana process is a vehicle through which Turkey, Russia, and Iran, are looking to manage the war and secure their various interests,” said Elizabeth Teoman, a Turkey analyst at the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War (ISW).Russia has substantial air power in Syria while Iran has a strong presence on the ground, partly through militia groups which include foreign fighters.But Erdogan has increased Turkey’s influence by launching in January an offensive to capture territory from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia.The offensive has already succeeded in capturing the former YPG bastion of Afrin and Erdogan has repeatedly threatened to advance the push further east.“Erdogan is a weaker partner in terms of ground forces and control over airspace. But he has built up leverage and proven he can create facts on the ground,” Teoman said.Yet analysts remain skeptical about the long term viability of an alliance between three powers who spent much of their imperial history at war and vying for influence in the Black Sea region.In theory they also remain on different sides of the conflict — with Moscow and Tehran giving military support to the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad but Turkey repeatedly calling for Assad’s ouster.Turkey’s focus now is to prevent the YPG from controlling an area that could form the base of a long autonomous region in postwar Syria from the Iraqi border to the Mediterranean.Turkish officials say this would be a threat to national security.Russia, meanwhile, wants to be able to extricate itself from Syria and not be bogged down in any quagmire reminiscent of the Soviet war in Afghanistan.But Iran’s priority is to win the major political influence so it can call the shots like in Iraq.“Russia and Turkey have shared interests, but those interests are against Iran and the regime’s, so you have Moscow trying to stage manage three partners that hate each other,” said Aaron Stein, senior resident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East.Moscow and Ankara claim to have made up following the crisis that followed when Turkey shot down a Russian plane over Syria in 2015 and Putin will meet with Erdogan for a bilateral meeting on Tuesday.Turkish officials acknowledge that Ankara could not have launched its operation against the YPG without a green light from Moscow.“We wouldn’t even have been able to put up a drone there!” Erdogan’s advisor Ilnur Cevik told CNN Turk broadcaster.Yet relations between Ankara and Moscow are never plain sailing and Turkey has been bitterly critical of the assault by Moscow’s ally Assad on rebel-held Eastern Ghouta.Turkish-Iranian relations have the potential to be even more tricky and Ankara has expressed uneasiness over Tehran’s attitude towards Kurdish rebels.Tehran angered Turkey by urging it to end its Syria offensive while Cevik accused Iran of cooperating with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).“Iran does not want Turkey to be strong,” he said.Jennifer Cafarella, a Syria expert at ISW, described Erdogan’s relationship with Iran and Russia as an “alignment of convenience.”“He’ll remain aligned with them as long as he deems it necessary to pursue his goals against the YPG,” she said.

Analysis-What we know and don’t about Friday’s Gaza protests-Following the mass march and violence in which the IDF killed 16 people, the battle shifts to public opinion: Were they unarmed protesters or dangerous terrorists?-By Judah Ari Gross-APR 3,18-TOI

Three days after the deadliest day in the Gaza Strip since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, significant questions — factual, legal, and moral — abound, regarding what happened on both sides of the security fence.What exactly were the 16 Palestinians who were killed — and the many more who were injured — doing when they were shot by IDF troops on Friday? Did their actions warrant the use of lethal force? How else could the IDF have responded to the protests? Tens of thousands of Palestinians took part in the demonstrations along the Gaza fence, marking “Land Day,” a commemoration of the expropriation of Arab land in the Galilee by the Israeli government on March 30, 1976, and subsequent protests in which six Arab Israelis were killed.It was the start of a six-week “March of Return,” which will end in mid-May with both “Nakba Day,” marking the displacement of Arabs after Israel’s creation, and the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that has infuriated Palestinian leaders.The March of Return is an annual event, but this year’s protest in Gaza got significant support from the Hamas terror group that rules the Strip. In addition to the civilians organizing the protest, who maintained that it would be peaceful, there were figures like Khaled al-Batsh, a senior figure in the Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, adding to the complex nature of the protest — part legitimate, part nefarious.On Sunday, the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry reported that 15 people were killed from Israeli gunfire during the protests and 1,479 were injured, more than half from live fire and the rest from Israel’s less-lethal riot dispersal measures. One of those injured died of his wounds on Monday morning, bringing the tally to 16 fatalities.IDF spokesperson Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis rejected the Gaza ministry’s figures of people injured by live fire, saying the true figure was dramatically lower.“There were not hundreds of people injured by gunshots. The overwhelming majority were wounded by riot dispersal means,” he said.Among the dead were two men who, armed with AK-47 assault rifles and hand grenades, opened fire on Israeli soldiers and attempted to breach the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip, before they were shot by IDF infantrymen and a tank, according to the army. The military later provided video footage of the attack from its surveillance cameras along the fence, as well as photographs of the weapons.Manelis directly blamed the failed attack on Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Yahya Sinwar. “There’s no way a terror attack is going to take place without Haniyeh and Sinwar’s approval,” Manelis told reporters on Monday.According to the IDF, the other Palestinians killed were shot in accordance with its rules of engagement, but it has provided little evidence of what exactly happened.Manelis said that in the course of Friday, the IDF documented three attempts to place improvised explosive devices along the fence and five attempts to break through the fence with wire cutters, as well as multiple cases of people throwing burning tires at the fence. He refused to detail what each of the people shot was suspected of doing and rejected calls for external investigations.“We don’t need to answer to the world about every bullet that’s fired,” he said.Some video evidence has called into question the army’s claims that everyone shot represented a clear threat, notably in the case of Abd el-Fatah Abd a-Nabi, who appeared to have been targeted while running a significant distance from the fence, holding a tire.Manelis would not discuss the specifics of that case, but noted that the video in question was edited and did not show the period immediately before a-Nabi was shot.He said that in the army’s view, considering the number of people who took part and the violent nature of the actions on the border, the number of fatalities was “very reasonable.”Of the 16 killed, 11 appeared to have been affiliated with terror organizations, he noted, mostly Hamas, but also Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Islamic Jihad, and a salafist group. This army’s identification of these operatives is largely supported by acknowledgements by the terrorist organizations themselves, and by photographs of the men either in uniform or receiving military-style funerals, although some could not be immediately substantiated.Asked about the videos that appeared to show people being shot while relatively far away from the fence, the spokesperson said the army was investigating every shooting from Friday. “Some things look bad on film, and it’s possible there were mistakes,” he said.Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman similarly rebuffed calls for external inquiries on Saturday.Following Friday’s protests, countries around the world expressed concern over the number of people killed.UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for “those concerned to refrain from any act that could lead to further casualties.” France called on Israel to show restraint. And Kuwait tried to get the United Nations to condemn Israel for its military response, but failed after the United States vetoed the proposed resolution.Manelis took considerable umbrage at the view that Israel was to blame for Friday’s violence and put the responsibility on Hamas, which helped organize the protest.“Israel didn’t initiate this. We didn’t want it to happen,” he said.During the demonstrations, an estimated 30,000 Palestinians took part at six main locations east of major cities and towns along the coastal enclave. Most of the participants stayed several hundred meters back from the security fence separating Gaza from Israel. Photographs and footage from that area showed people dancing and families enjoying barbecues.But a portion of the protesters, most of them young men and some young women, came closer to the security fence — within a few dozen meters — lighting fires or using slingshots to hurl rocks at Israeli troops on the other side.A smaller number went right up to the fence. Footage released by the military and some videos circulating on social media showed mostly young men throwing Molotov cocktails or burning tires at the metal barrier.According to Manelis, terror groups also tried to take advantage of the chaos to plant improvised explosive devices along the fence in three cases. The military provided no visual evidence of this.During the protest, Israeli troops used tear gas — fired from both handheld grenade launchers and by specially designed drones — as well as rubber bullets and live fire against the Palestinian rioters.The military maintains that, in accordance with its rules of engagement, live fire was only used against those who represented a direct threat to the Israeli soldiers or to the security fence.One of the issues in assessing the army’s actions on Friday is in the amount of information that is unknown or disputed, from the number of people shot to what exactly each of them was doing at the time, said Eliav Lieblich, a senior lecturer at Tel Aviv University’s faculty of law.Without that information, it is difficult to accurately determine if those shot indeed represented a threat, as the IDF claims, or not.This is a problem not only when investigating the 16 reported fatalities, but also the many others who were hit by live bullets, according to Lieblich, who co-wrote a legal brief on the potential difficulties with the army’s tactics.Another graphic video from a far smaller demonstration on Sunday appeared to show a Palestinian teenager being shot in the head as he stood near a pile of burning tires, but did not seem to be presenting a clear threat to either IDF soldiers or the security fence.“When you have 800 people reportedly injured by live fire, it makes you think about the rules of engagement,” Lieblich said over the phone.Manelis said the army would be conducting its own internal investigations, as it does with any case that results in a death outside of a strict combat setting.In the lead-up to Friday’s protest, the military made it clear that its most immediate concern was a massive rush toward Israeli territory by thousands or tens of thousands of Gazans, along the lines of what happened along the Lebanese and Syrian borders in June 2011, when mobs broke through perimeter fences into Israel and several Lebanese and Syrian nationals were killed in the ensuing bedlam, some by Israeli troops and others by the Lebanese military.On Monday, the spokesperson said that was exactly what the army was preparing for.“Haniyeh had said, ‘We will cut the fence and go to Jerusalem,'” Manelis noted.His refrain throughout his phone call with reporters was “Imagine what could have happened.”A mass inrush did not occur.Perhaps the massive breach was never a credible threat and only talk by the Hamas leader, designed to frighten Israeli citizens and put the military on edge. But Manelis maintained that it was a real danger, averted “only because of how Israel acted” on Friday.“We prevented a catastrophe,” he said.Asked how the army would respond if masses of Palestinians did indeed move to break through the fence and march on nearby Israeli communities, Manelis said the army had practiced responding to such scenarios, but that he would “rather not think about that,” as the results would surely be bloody.A breach of the fence or attempts to damage it do not in and of themselves amount to an action that warrants lethal force, according to Lieblich.The army’s implication that an attack on the security fence could lead to mobs of people rushing into Israel, which could spell “catastrophe,” does not hold water as a legal argument, Lieblich said. “You don’t know for a fact what is going to happen next,” he said.Lieblich stressed, however, that this pertains only to the attempts to sabotage or break through the fence; not to any attempts to plant explosives or attack troops with rocks and firebombs, which much more clearly represent a threat to life.Manelis, for his part, said that “‘life threatening’ is a subjective issue.”Identifying terrorist operatives-One of the more irregular things to come out this weekend was a list of the names, ages, hometowns, pictures and terrorist affiliations of 10 of the 16 fatalities that was published by the IDF on Saturday night. (Israel did not identify an 11th suspected terrorist operative, though Islamic Jihad publicly claimed him as a member.)-The army included a-Nabi in its list of Hamas members. In a poster, Hamas referred to him as a “martyred mujahadeen,” a term it generally reserves for its fallen fighters. His family has denied that he was affiliated with the organization.Usually, even long after the identities of terrorists are publicized in the media or released by the Shin Bet security service, the army generally refrains from referring to them by name, instead referring to them in official communiques as “the terrorist who killed X” or “the terrorist who committed this or that car-ramming/stabbing/shooting.”The army was able to release the information on the Gaza fatalities within a day due in some part to its improved camera equipment on the border, but mostly because of the wealth of open-source information on social media, something that was not as available in the past.The army’s unusual move of releasing the identities appears to have been an attempt to strengthen the message that Israeli officials have been spreading for weeks: This was not a peaceful civilian protest, but one orchestrated by terrorist groups for their own purposes.“A demonstration doesn’t include people burning tires and shooting,” Manelis said.What else could have been done? While the IDF may be able to legally justify its use of lethal force, that does not mean that it was necessary in every case.“My impression is that we, to a certain extent, may have been too quick to fire at a demonstration that I’m not sure endangered our soldiers and that I’m not sure would have trampled the fence and seen masses getting into Israel,” former IDF general Giora Eiland told The Times of Israel on Monday.The army used a relatively limited array of less-lethal riot dispersal measures on Friday, mostly just tear gas and rubber bullets.The army’s rules of engagement for live fire also led to a large number of dead Palestinians. Even if the army sees this as “reasonable,” it has led some to ask whether the IDF would do better to change those protocols.Commentators have also questioned why the army did not rely on other riot dispersal tools it has at its disposal, like the noxious “skunk” spray that smells like rotting flesh and sewage, or bring in additional forces from the Border Police, who are meant to be better trained at responding to riots.Others have suggested the use of less-lethal riot dispersal weapons from other countries, like the American defense contractor Raytheon’s Active Denial System, which fires energy similar to microwaves at demonstrators, warming the water on the skin until they are forced back because of the painful heat.According to Manelis, however, the army has no plans to fundamentally change its methods if the protests planned for this coming Friday take place as scheduled in Gaza.“We will use the same forces, the same equipment and the same tactics,” he said.

Russia claims UK could have been behind spy’s poisoning-Moscow says nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal 'could be in the interests of the British government' or special forces-By Anna MALPAS-TOI-APR 3,18
MOSCOW, Russia (AFP) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday suggested Britain could be behind the poisoning of a former double agent that has triggered an unprecedented wave of tit-for-tat expulsions of diplomats.More than 150 Russian diplomats have been ordered out of the US, EU members, NATO countries and other nations as punishment for the March attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury which Britain has blamed on Moscow.The counterclaims from Moscow came as the last Russian diplomats were leaving the countries where they were posted.Four Russian diplomats expelled from Germany arrived back in Moscow on the weekend, Russia’s embassy in Berlin said, ahead of a Monday deadline imposed on Moscow.A Russian diplomat also left Macedonia along with family members earlier Monday.The Kremlin has vehemently denied the accusations that it was behind the nerve agent attack and ordered Britain and its allies to recall some of their envoys from Russia.On Monday, Moscow’s top diplomat Lavrov told a news conference that the Skripal attack “could be in the interests of the British government which found itself in an uncomfortable situation having failed to fulfill promises to its electorate about the conditions for Brexit.”He reiterated that Moscow had no reason to poison Skripal — whom it convicted of treason and handed over in a 2010 spy swap — on the eve of a presidential election in March and months before Russia hosts the World Cup.Lavrov suggested that the poisoning of the Skripals “could also be in the interests of the British special forces who are known for their abilities to act with a license to kill.”At the same time, he denied the attack’s “sophistication” meant it was likely to have been approved by the Russian leadership, as CNN cited a source briefed on the investigation as saying.“If I understand correctly, sophisticated attacks usually lead to instant death,” Lavrov said.Britain has called it “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the attack using a nerve agent developed in the USSR.Lavrov also accused Britain, the US and its allies of “casting off all decency” and “resorting to lies and disinformation.”He insisted that “serious experts and “leaders of a whole number of countries” were questioning Britain’s account of the crime.“How far we all go” did not depend on Russia, he said, adding Moscow would follow “the principle of reciprocity.”Britain has dismissed the various, often contradictory, theories, that Russia has put forward, with even the Foreign Office publicly mocking them on social media.Lavrov complained that the British authorities have still not given consular access to “our citizens,” and that the situation had not changed despite Yulia Skripal’s improved condition.He said he hoped Sergei Skripal would also get better.Moscow has sought to punish Britain for calling on allies to expel Russian diplomats, saying Saturday London must reduce its diplomatic presence in the country by more than 50 more diplomats, to achieve “parity” with Russia’s diplomatic staff in Britain.Russia had earlier expelled 23 British diplomats and last week told envoys from 23 other countries that some of their staff must go home.Separately, a top Kremlin aide said Monday that US President Donald Trump proposed a White House summit when he called President Vladimir Putin last month, prior to the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the US.In Washington, officials dismissed the statement from Putin’s top foreign policy aide, Yury Ushakov.A senior US administration official said “it’s obviously in their interest” to publicise the summit invitation as Putin’s risks deeper international isolation after the Skripal attack.White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the two leaders had discussed a bilateral meeting “at a number of potential venues, including the White House.”On March 20, Trump called Putin to congratulate him on his re-election, and the US leader told reporters afterwards that the two would “probably get together in the not-too-distant future.”Both the US official and Ushakov said that planning for the meeting had not yet begun.Ushakov expressed the hope that Russia and the United States could return to “constructive and serious dialogue.”After the phone call, Washington expelled 60 Russian diplomats and shut down a Russian consulate in Seattle.Moscow responded by sending home 60 US diplomats and closing Washington’s consulate in Saint Petersburg.Washington has, however, said Russia was free to apply to accredit more diplomats to replace those expelled.

Netanyahu accuses EU, New Israel Fund of pressing Rwanda to nix migrants deal-Left-wing group rails against PM's 'pathetic, shameful' accusations, says it has nothing to do with Kigali's refusal to cooperate with 'cruel' deportations-By TOI staff-APR 3,18

The New Israel Fund on Monday night railed against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his “pathetic, shameful” accusations that the left-wing organization put pressure on Rwanda to reject the Israeli government’s proposed resettlement of African migrants in the country.“In recent weeks, amid enormous pressure on Rwanda by the New Israel Fund and sources in the European Union, Rwanda has withdrawn from the agreement and refused to accept infiltrators from Israel that were forcibly deported,” the prime minister wrote in a Facebook post on Monday evening, after a chaotic day in which he announced a deal with the UN refugee agency on the African asylum seekers, and then, hours later, suspended the agreement.Netanyahu was referring to earlier government plans to deport tens of thousands of African migrants in Israel illegally, most of them from Eritrea and Sudan, to Rwanda and Uganda.“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has once again resorted to lies about the New Israel Fund in order to score cheap political points. The New Israel Fund had nothing to do with Rwanda’s decision to refuse to participate in the Prime Minister’s cruel mass deportation plan,” the New Israel Fund said in a statement.“It is pathetic, shameful, and a stain on Israel in the global arena that the Prime Minister would blame Israel’s human rights defenders for his ineptitude and his immoral policies,” it added.The European Union’s mission in Israel also addressed the accusation in a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post.Guess it's just one of those days. At 20:57 you congratulate #Israel & @refugees on their agreement, at 21:46 you like @IsraelMFA announcement on the deal, at 22:50 the PM suspends it and blames, among others, #EU (where #UNHCR hoped to resettle significant number of refugees).— EU in Israel (@EUinIsrael) April 2, 2018-In his earlier remarks on the agreement, Netanyahu had said the previous Israeli plan to deport migrants to Rwanda and Uganda was no longer feasible. He stressed that “legal constraints as well as political difficulties on the part of [Uganda and Rwanda]” led to the cancellation of previous deportation policies.The earlier deportation policy, which offered each migrant $3,500 and a plane ticket, had been condemned by Israeli activists and the United Nations as poorly executed and unsafe. Asylum seekers previously deported to Uganda and Rwanda have told The Times of Israel they faced serious danger and even imprisonment after arriving in Africa without proper documents.The Supreme Court froze the deportations in mid-March in response to a petition.In the afternoon, at a press conference alongside Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Netanyahu had praised the new deal with the UN refugee agency, saying that it would see some 16,250 African migrants in Israel resettled in “developed” Western countries, while a similar number would be given temporary residency.“This agreement will allow for the departure from Israel of 16,250 migrants to developed countries like Canada or Germany or Italy,” Netanyahu said, without elaborating. Other reports said the United States and Sweden would also take in some of the number.German and Italian diplomats on Monday evening told Hebrew media they had not signed agreements to absorb African migrants from Israel.Backtracking on the UNHCR deal, Netanyahu on Monday night said he was freezing the agreement in response to protests by Israelis.“I hear you, and especially the residents of south Tel Aviv,” Netanyahu said in a (Hebrew) Facebook post amid mounting right-wing criticism of the deal. “For the time being, I am suspending the agreement,” he added, noting that he would meet with Deri and residents of south Tel Aviv, where many of the migrants reside, before reconsidering it.The prime minister was subsequently accused by opposition lawmakers  of caving to pressure by his coalition partners, who have expressed disapproval of the plan and said they were not consulted.

Israel reaches landmark deal with UN to resettle half of African migrants-Forced deportations to Africa nixed; around 16,2500 refugees to be resettled in Western countries, with the remaining 16,250 to remain in the Jewish state-By TOI staff-3 April 2018
Israel will cancel plans to expel asylum seekers to third-party countries in Africa after reaching an “unprecedented” deal with the United Nations, the Prime Minister’s Office announced Monday.According to the agreement, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees  will work to find homes in Western countries for at least 16,250 of the asylum seekers in Israel, while Israel will agree to give temporary status to the remainder — also estimated at around 16,250. The US, Canada, Sweden, Italy and Germany were reported to be among the countries to take in the migrants.The PMO said most of those who will stay would have remained in Israel in any event.The new deal is to be phased in over the next five years in three stages, though the PMO did not specify the details.The new plan, under the auspices of the United Nations, will replace the previous plan, which had been due to go into effect Sunday, which was to expel the migrants to unnamed third-party countries, believed to be Rwanda and Uganda — although both have denied involvement in the plan.The earlier deportation policy, which offered each migrant $3,500 and a plane ticket, had been condemned by Israeli activists and the United Nations as chaotic, poorly executed, and unsafe. Asylum seekers previously deported to Uganda and Rwanda have told the Times of Israel they faced serious danger and even imprisonment after arriving in Africa without proper documents.The Supreme Court froze the deportations in mid-March in response to a petition.The PMO said that the new plan had been approved by the attorney general and was in keeping with international law and practice.At the same time the PMO announced a special committee, headed by former Kadima MK Avigdor Yitzhaki, to improve the quality of life in south Tel Aviv, where many of the asylum seekers live.In addition, as part of the deal, the government will focus on providing occupational guidance, vocational training and other assistance to the migrants to help them integrate into Israel. It will also work to disperse them around the country, so that they will not be concentrated in a single area.Human rights activists in Israel and major US Jewish organizations had long urged the Israeli government not to go ahead with its plan to force the migrants to choose between jail and deportation.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

Saudi crown prince recognizes Israel’s right to exist, talks up future ties-Mohammed bin Salman tells Atlantic the Iranian ayatollah is 'worse than Hitler' because he is 'trying to conquer the world'-By TOI staff-3 April 2018
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in an interview published Monday,  recognized Israel’s right to exist and extolled the prospect of future diplomatic relations between his kingdom and the Jewish state.In an extensive interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Prince Mohammed laid out his vision for the future of the Middle East, including the possibility of cooperation with Israel.Asked whether he believes “the Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland,” he replied: “I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land.”However, in keeping with the terms of his kingdom’s regional peace proposal, the Saudi crown prince added that an agreement with the Palestinians was a prerequisite to formal relations. “But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” he said.Did he have “no religious-based objection to the existence of Israel?” he was further asked. To which the crown prince replied: “We have religious concerns about the fate of the holy mosque in Jerusalem and about the rights of the Palestinian people. This is what we have. We don’t have any objection against any other people.”Asked about anti-Semitism in Saudi Arabia, he said: “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 Christian and Muslims and Jews. We have problems like you would find anywhere in the world, among some people. But the normal sort of problems.”Israel and Saudi Arabia have no official relations and the kingdom does not recognize the Jewish state. Israel has hinted at clandestine ties with Saudi Arabia in recent years, stressing the two countries share an interest in countering Iran. The rumors of covert relations have been denied by Saudi officials. Still, a Saudi general visited Jerusalem in 2016 and met with Israeli lawmakers, and Saudi officials have met with Israeli officials on several occasions in public; Saudi Arabia also last month allowed Air India to fly to and from Tel Aviv via its air space.Discussing a shared concern over Iran was bringing Israel and Saudi Arabia together, he said: “Israel is a big economy compared to their size and it’s a growing economy, and of course there are a lot of interests we share with Israel and if there is peace, there would be a lot of interest between Israel and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and countries like Egypt and Jordan.”Salman also discussed the threat to the Middle East he said was posed by Iran, even saying that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, “makes Hitler look good.”“Hitler didn’t do what the supreme leader is trying to do. Hitler tried to conquer Europe. This is bad,” he explained. “But the supreme leader is trying to conquer the world. He believes he owns the world. They are both evil guys. He is the Hitler of the Middle East. In the 1920s and 1930s, no one saw Hitler as a danger. Only a few people. Until it happened. We don’t want to see what happened in Europe happen in the Middle East. We want to stop this through political moves, economic moves, intelligence moves. We want to avoid war.”Asked about the differences in how former US president Barack Obama and his successor, Donald Trump, chose to deal with the Iranian threat, Salman said that although the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran aimed to curb the Islamic Republic’s fanaticism, it included risks his country could not afford to take.“President Obama believed that if he gave Iran opportunities to open up, it would change,” Salman explained. “But with a regime based on this ideology, it will not open up soon. Sixty percent of the Iranian economy is controlled by the Revolutionary Guard. The economic benefits of the Iran nuclear deal are not going to the people.“They took $150 billion after the deal — can you please name one housing project they built with this money? One park? One industrial zone? Can you name for me the highway that they built? I advise them — please show us something that you’re building a highway with $150 billion,” he said. “For Saudi Arabia, there is a 0.1 percent chance that this deal would work to change the country. For President Obama it was 50 percent. But even if there’s a 50 percent chance that it would work, we can’t risk it. The other 50 percent is war. We have to go to a scenario where there is no war.”In a major Saudi shakeup last year, Prince Mohammed pushed aside his older and more experienced cousin to become first in line to his father’s throne, setting himself up to control Saudi policy for decades to come.The Saudis are working aggressively to change perceptions. They’ve cast themselves as essential partners against Islamist extremist groups and, especially since Trump’s maiden overseas voyage last year, touted their lavish purchases of high-tech goods from job-creating American companies. In Yemen, the kingdom says it is improving military targeting, opening up ports and pledging $1.5 billion in new aid.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
