This is a most interesting development!

A billion dollars, for the rulers of Saudi Arabia or Bahrein are of
course next to a drop of piss. But it is the _fact itself_ that the
funds have been officially set up that marks an inflection in the
struggle. Israel is beginning to confront its worst nightmare, that
is a unified Arab front against its aggressions to the Palestinian
people.

I find it is an important step ahead. Thank you Mine for the
information.
