The Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, told The Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban he would fear for his life if he struck a normalization deal with Israel.

According to Haaretz, Saban quoted the Saudi crown prince as saying that following in the steps of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates would get him “killed by Iran, by Qatar and my own people.

The entertainment mogul made this claim at a pro-Biden online campaign event on Wednesday entitled “Israel’s Security & Prosperity in a Biden White House,” hosted by Florida for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, Haaretz reported.

The UAE and Bahrain, which closely coordinate their foreign policies with Saudi Arabia, normalized relations with Israel in August, cementing the move with a signing ceremony at the White House last month.

On Friday, US President Donald J. Trump said he expected Saudi Arabia to also agree to closer ties with Israel in the coming months.

Trump’s comments came shortly after Sudan agreed to become the third Arab country to normalize ties with Israel.

Earlier this month, Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud said the kingdom would not recognize Israel until there was a return to Israel-Palestine negotiations.

A recent survey found that, despite the moves by the UAE and Bahrain, a majority of Arab populations continue to oppose normalization with Israel strongly.
