Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman has rebuked Palestinians once again by telling a US-based Jewish group that "it is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining".

In a closed-door meeting with heads of Jewish organizations in NY in March, Bin Salman harshly criticized Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians' diplomatic conduct over the past 40 years, according to a report by American news site Axious.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has even suggested Palestinian leadership to either accept what Trump is offering or shut their mouth.

Channel 10 cited an Israeli foreign ministry cable sent by a diplomat from the Israeli consulate in NY, as well three sources - Israeli and American - who were briefed about the meeting.
