Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, often known as MBS, has told heads of US-based Jewish groups that the Palestinian leadership must accept conditions for peace put forward by the administration of US President Donald Trump, according to a report on Israeli media.
The Saudi crown prince also heavily criticised the Palestinian leadership, including President Mahmoud Abbas and said Palestinian statehood was not a priority for Riyadh, according to the reports by Israel's Channel 10 news.
Crown Prince Mohammad was unequivocal in what he thinks of Palestinian leaders continually rejecting peace offerings. The Israeli prime minister himself is one of many rejectionists that staunchly oppose the global formula for peace based on worldwide law.
"In the last several decades the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all the peace proposals it was given", the prince said.
According to the Israeli paper, Bin Salman made two other points on the Palestinian issue during the meeting.
U.S. and its allies in the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia have resumed exerting pressure on Palestinian Authority led by Mehmoud Abbas to start negotiations with Israel government to settle the outstanding issues.
Amman was his last stop in his whirlwind Middle East tour, which took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan in three days.

TSX retreats as oil prices fall, USA yields climb
The stock market had already been spooked by a climb in bond yields earlier in the year, sliding sharply in February. Other technology stocks in the FAANG group, Facebook , Amazon .com Inc and Netflix Inc, also weighed on the Nasdaq.
"It's about time that the Palestinians accept the offers, and agree to come to the negotiating table - or they should shut up and stop complaining", he continued.
Since then, Israel has killed more than 40 unarmed Palestinians in Gaza as the Great Return March protests continue. "There are much more urgent and more important issues to deal with - such as Iran".
Saudi Arabia and Israel have no formal diplomatic relations, but in the past two years, a series of reports of covert meetings between Israeli and Saudi officials give an impression of a rapprochement between the two states.
Saudi Arabian-Israeli ties have thawed recently despite the absence of diplomatic ties. With an intense crackdown on freedom of expression in the country, it is hard to gauge how well this turn has been taken in by citizens of the country.
For years rumors suggested that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and Israel have under the table dealings in military and intelligence, and the latest comments by bin Salman and other Arab Gulf leaders over the past few months show that such rumors might not be far-fetched.
