The controversial Saudi prince Talal has openly declared his intention to embark a seven-day pilgrimage to Holy Land and pray in Al-Aqsa Mosque — the third holiest site in Islam located in the Old City of Jerusalem– , reported Okaz , the Arabic Saudi Arabian daily on Thursday.

Prince Talal of Saudi Arabia: My visit to Israel shall mark the new age of peace and fraternity.

“All my Muslim brothers and sisters must understand that it became a moral imperative for all inhabitants of war-torn Middle-East, namely Arabs, to desist their absurd hostility toward Jewish people. My sovereign, King Salman has instructed me to open a direct dialogue with Israel’s intellectual building amicable ties with our Israeli neighbors,” Okaz quoted the Saudi prince who lives in one of London’s affluent suburbs.

I was always candid regarding the utmost necessity of quelling the growing waves of anti-Semitism in our volatile region , added Prince Talal, and I shall remain lavish in my praise to Israel as the sole democratic entity in one the most tyrannical parts in the entire world.

Saying that his voyage might be the harbinger of peace and fraternity, the Saudi Prince emphasized on developing the nascent military and intelligence co-operation with Tel Aviv.

*NOTE from Israel and Stuff:

The Jerusalem Post ran an article that confirmed the above story, but, just took down their post.

SO, Apparently, it indeed seems to be a hoax.

    If you knew it was a hoax, why did you publish it?

    • I didn’t know it was a hoax. It was referred to in a couple of places on the internet. An hour after I posted it, so did the Jerusalem Post (link on bottom of article). Only an hour later, did the J’lem Post article ‘disappear’ leaving me to believe it was a hoax.

      I had no confirmation either way.The next day, the Times of Israel article challenged the AWD’s veracity.

      I left the story up, with a postscript acknowledging my belief that it was a hoax, as soon as the J’lem Post pulled their article, and added the finale line when politicians AND publishers fell for it.

      Two hours after it was posted, the postscript was added.
