Prime Minister Netanyahu Meets with Arab Journalists

(Times of Israel) Raphael Ahren - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday hosted a delegation of journalists and bloggers from Arab countries, including a Saudi Arabian national, Mohammed Saud, who was harassed and attacked by Palestinians on Monday as he was touring Jerusalem's Old City. Netanyahu apologized to Saud on Israel's behalf for the incident. The Foreign Ministry's spokesperson for the Arabic media, Hassan Caabia, said Saud "took it somewhat harshly, but he understood that this is the real face of the Palestinians." Three suspects in the harassment of Saud were arrested Tuesday. "This young man came here to promote peace between the nations. Israel gave him a warm welcome, but the Palestinians wanted to humiliate him," Caabia said.
