Recently, Tzipi Livni, head of the opposition Zionist Union party, met with Saudi prince Turki al-Faisal at a conference, and tweeted this photo:
After His Picture with Livni Went Viral, Turki Al-Faisal: “By Allah, This is an Innocent Picture, Don’t Let Your Imagination Run Wild, Get Over It, We Grew Old
After the picture of Turki Al-Faisal with Livni – who was described as the “Lover of Politicians”, and who is proud to provide “physical services” for Israel – went viral, he (i.e. Turki) spoke, after a long silence.
In an exclusive interview to Ad-Dabbour, Turki Al-Faisal said: “The picture is completely innocent, nothing happened between us, she grew old and she is worn out, and I am gone as well, I ask you not to make a big issue out of it, don’t let your imagination run wild.”
Al-Faisal added: “She (i.e. Livni) disgraced us, may Allah disgrace her, I thought that it is a private picture, only for her, but she published it without my knowledge. Anyway, Livni uses her body to bring down the most prominent politicians who are working with her in secret, whereas I am working with her overtly…., and this is strong proof that there was nothing between us.”
When Ad-Dabbour’s reporter asked Turki Al-Faisal about the nature of that “innocent meeting”, Turki Al-Faisal said: “I spoke with her about the will of my master King Muhammad Bin Salman, er, I mean the current Crown Prince [Note: this is a dig at Saudi Arabia, saying that it is really the Crown Prince running the show, not his father, the King.] to open an Israeli embassy in Riyadh soon.” He also said: “I said to her: ‘We are very close to open an Israeli embassy in Riyadh, we hope that this is realized soon.’”
Livni said: “We don’t want to hurry up with normalizing relations with Saudi Arabia right now, we want a total normalization with all Arab countries at once.
[Another dig at Saudi Arabia, i.e. that they are trying to normalize relations with the Jews, and it is the Jews saying “no”]
The Saudi prince (i.e. Turki Al-Faisal) proclaimed his gratefulness for his being in a Jewish synagogue for the first time, and he said that he hoped that it won’t be the last. He also defended his recurring appearance with former Israeli officials.
Ad-Dabbour’s reporter asked: “Why don’t you open a Jewish synagogue in Mecca, so that this joy is not denied to you?” (i.e. the joy of being in a synagogue) Al-Faisal: “There are ongoing negotiations to return the Jews of Khaibar to Mecca. As you know, they were here before us, and they have a right to the Ka’aba more than the Muslims. We hope that this happens soon, so that there will be peace in the entire world, and those who have rights regain their rights.”
[Once again, a dig at Saudi Arabia, saying that they are willing to give up the most sacred rights of the Muslims…]
We are still looking for Ad-Dabbour’s reporter at the time of the writing of this report.
