Israeli MP and former leader of the Israeli Labor Party Isaac Herzog has said that Saudi Arabia can play an important role on the issue of Jerusalem (Baitul Muqaddas). Herzog said that Saudi Arabia has the experience of managing holy places like Mecca and Medina, that is why i believe that it should be given great responsibility in Baitul Muqaddas. While praising Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Israeli leader has said that Saudi Arabia should be given a responsibility in the so-called peace process.
It is worth mentioning that Saudi Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman are among the biggest supporters of normalizing relations with Israel. Bin Salman proposed to make an alliance with Israeli officials against Iran.
However, analysts believe that this suggestion by the Israeli leader is because of the fact that it wants to target Jordan. Jordan had strongly opposed the decision of declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the US.Jordan has given the service to Masjid Al Aqsa and Christian holy sites located in Baitul Muqaddas.
In the United Nations General Assembly, Jordan was also included in 128 countries who voted against the US decision. Jerusalem is one of the core issues in Israel-Palestine peace process.
