The discussion follows Ladder’s call to revive peace talks between the two groups.
Lauder, a U.S. businessman and heir to Estelle’s companies, told the Saudi newspaper Arab News on September 16 that he hoped a White House-led deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain could resume talks between Israel and Palestine.
The Middle East has seen a shift in attitudes toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with some Gulf states expressing reluctance to make the Palestinian cause champion.
In a recent interview-history lecture recorded by former Saudi Arabian intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultana, the prince called Palestinian causes “justified,” but said his “advocates are failures,” while “unjust” Israeli causes have proved “successful.” ” The Street Journal reported.
“Palestine is still under occupation,” said Marwan Musharraf, Jordan’s former foreign minister. “Even if Israel signs a peace treaty with all the Arab states but does not come to terms with the Palestinians, you are not achieving stability in the region.”
A Palestinian official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the leader was not carrying a message from the White House.
Another Palestinian Palestinian source said Abbas discussed the call he made early last year at a UN-led peace conference at the United Nations last month.
The World Jewish Congress said in a statement that La La Der met with Abbas, “at the invitation of Abbas for a private visit, to discuss various issues concerning Palestine and the Middle East.”
