Washington :Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el Sisi have called on the White House to keep supporting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, despite the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by a hit squad sent from Riyadh, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.

According to The Post Netanyahu described the crown prince as a “strategic ally” in the Middle East. The Post said Egypt’s president Sisi had conveyed a similar message.

Since MBS had rose to power, the Saudi Arabia’s pro Zionist policies has become an open secret.

Earlier in 2016  a retired Saudi general visited Israel , heading a delegation of academics and businessmen.

During the visit Dr. Anwar Eshki met with Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, and several Knesset members from the opposition.

Such a visit by former general Eshki, who was once a top adviser to the Saudi government, is an extremely rare occurrence. “While this wasn’t an official visit, it was a highly unusual one, as Eshki couldn’t have traveled to Israel without approval from the Saudi government,” the newspaper report said.

In March top Israeli and Saudi Arabian officials reportedly held a series of secret meetings in Cairo .

In 2017 Saudi and Israeli official hold a closed-door meeting together in Washinton.

According to an AFP report the Crown Prince Emir Mohammed bin Salman secretly visited Tel Aviv in September last year.
