A former Israeli minister revealed details of an American plan for President Joe Biden’s administration to replace Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman with Prince Muhammad bin Nayef.
Biden will ask King Salman to isolate his son
The Minister of Justice and former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yossi Beilin, suggested that the US President requested the implementation of this step from the King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz.
Beilin said, according to a newspaper.Israel today“The Hebrew, Mohammed bin Salman” was the West’s greatest hope, for a moment. His father, King Salman of Saudi Arabia, was considered a leader for a transitional period. Many predicted that his son, the young Prince Muhammad, would become crown prince.
He added, “The estimate was that the position would be taken from the hand of Mohammed bin Nayef, the experienced and revered who was appointed by Salman with his coronation in 2015.”
He continued, “Indeed, after two years, the king ousted the crown prince who had been appointed and crowned his son Muhammad, who became deputy prime minister, and also minister of defense and chairman of the Council for Economic and Development Affairs.”
Receiving bin Salman as head of state
Beilin stated, “The White House received the surprising young man as a head of state, and so also elsewhere in the world.”
He continued: “He seemed to be pragmatic, talkative, listener, a true representative of modern Saudi Arabia, and the world could not wait for his father Salman to take off his crown and pass it on to his liberal son.”
He considered that “the Saudi crown prince gained his fame after he abolished the ban on women driving cars. But then he continued to detain women and men who had fought for reforms. The wealthy of Saudi Arabia were arrested until they agreed to pay taxes.
The Israeli minister indicated that Bin Salman involved his country in a terrible war in Yemen. And he did other strange actions. His involvement in the brutal murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October 2018 culminated in.
He noted that “America was marked by anger, and the world denounced, but the former US President Trump granted the young leader protection, and the young leader became completely dependent on Trump’s whims. He feared that US President Joe Biden, who is most sensitive to the issue of human rights, would lead him to the end of his political life.
Biden did not contact the crown prince
The minister pointed out, “The fact that Biden did not contact the crown prince, and announced that he would only speak with his father, was a more than clear signal.”
He continued, “A few days ago, Biden revealed the intelligence report that his predecessor preferred to hide,” stressing that “official America now grants legitimacy to the assessment that Bin Salman ordered the killing of Khashoggi.”
The Israeli minister suggested, “In the conversation between Biden and Saudi King Salman, the president hinted to the king that it would be wise on his part to replace his reckless son with the man who had to kiss his shoes and give up the mandate of the covenant only four years ago.”
“Will this be good for Israel?” He asked. “If this is good for our only true ally, America, it will be good for Israel.”
The release of Muhammad bin Nayef
Earlier, an American research institute confirmed that the former Saudi crown prince, Prince Muhammad bin Nayef, is an effective alternative to the current crown prince, Prince Muhammad bin Salman, to rule Saudi Arabia in the future.
The Brookings Institution for Research called on the administration of US President Joe Biden to pressure Riyadh to release Muhammad bin Nayef. He was detained for years in one of the prisons of Bin Salman.
The call came in the wake of Riyadh’s release of the activist Loujain Al-Hathloul and a number of other prisoners of conscience, in addition to the reduced sentences of others.
It also came days after high-ranking sources revealed new American pressure on Mohammed bin Salman. For the release of all prisoners of princes and politicians.
Muhammad bin Nayef, the big problem of the crown prince
The American Institute said that Muhammad bin Nayef was not detained for a crime he committed, but rather because he was a problem for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The institute described Mohammed bin Salman as “reckless and dangerous,” referring to the White House announcement, last Friday. There are no plans to hold a call between US President Joe Biden and the Saudi crown prince.
The Institute believes that the Biden administration’s adoption of the Muhammad bin Nayef case may be an unusual step.
According to the report, it should be an urgent task, given his significant contributions to American security, and because his life is in great danger.
At the end of last year, a British parliamentary commission of inquiry said that bin Nayef’s detention constituted a violation of international law. And part of a campaign launched by bin Salman to consolidate his power.
Lawyers for the former Saudi crown prince have warned that their client is the victim of an ongoing and coordinated attack from inside Saudi Arabia. On social media, what threatens his personal safety.

Bin Nayef is the son of Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz, the longest-serving interior minister in Saudi Arabia, who was educated in the United States.
He also trained with the FBI and British police “Scotland Yard”.
Bin Nayef gradually assumed the position of his father as Minister of the Interior, enjoyed good relations with the United States, and was considered the most competent. Especially in the fight against terrorism.
According to the report, which noted that the former Saudi crown prince has saved the lives of dozens, if not hundreds, of Americans. And his defeat of the “Al Qaeda” organization.
Mohammed bin Nayef services
In this regard, Brookings noted that the Saudi Ministry of Interior had thwarted a plot by Al Qaeda to attack a consulate. The United States in Jeddah in 1998.
At that time, the US Vice President “Al Gore” was there preparing to meet the Saudi Crown Prince, Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.
For these reasons, Muhammad bin Nayef was close to the US administration during the era of former President Barack Obama and his deputy, Joe Biden.
