Saudi prince offers $900,000 for capture of Israeli soldier

31 October 2011

A member of Saudi Arabia's royal family has offered a $900,000 reward for the capture of an Israeli soldier.

The offer, made Saturday by Prince Khaled bin Talal on a national television channel, comes days after prominent Saudi cleric Sheik Awadh al-Qarani floated a $100,000 offer for capturing an Israeli soldier.

The prince said the captured Israeli soldier would be traded for Arab prisoners held in Israeli jails, according to news service reports.

The offer comes after Israel agreed to release more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the freedom of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Is it too bad for Israel, the Politicians are too soft with them that hate Israelis. As I know, only Jesus-Christ will bring peace in Israel and the whole earth. Don't they have any prophet in Israel to consult regarding the will of God? I know, every thing is in the bible..

I wonder how much more Arab "largesse" has been expended on anti-Israel propaganda worldwide. Who provides the financial support to these numerous organizations, on all five continents, that are dedicated to the destruction of Israel? I think we need to know.
