"Axios": Officials from 4 Arab countries hold a secret meeting in Saudi Arabia

Senior national security officials from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Palestine met secretly in Riyadh 10 days ago to coordinate plans for the day after the war in Gaza and discuss ways to include the Palestinian Authority in governance.
Sources told the American website "Axios" that the meeting in Riyadh was hosted by the Saudi National Security Advisor, Musaed bin Muhammad Al-Aiban, indicating that the other participants were the Director of Palestinian General Intelligence, Majed Faraj, and his Egyptian counterpart, Abbas Kamel, and his Jordanian counterpart, Muhammad Rasul Al-Kilani.

The sources stated that American and Israeli officials were briefed on the meeting and its contents by some of the participants, indicating that the heads of the Saudi, Egyptian, and Jordanian security services informed Faraj that the Palestinian Authority needs to make serious reforms that will enable it to revitalize its political leadership.

One of the requests they made was that if a new Palestinian government was formed, the new prime minister would gain some of the powers that had been centralized in recent years under Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

One source said that the Saudis, Egyptians and Jordanians stressed that these reforms are necessary for the Palestinian Authority to return to ruling Gaza after a post-war transitional period.

The Saudi National Security Advisor said during the meeting that the Kingdom is still interested in moving forward with normalization with Israel in exchange for practical and irrevocable steps on the part of Israel that would pave the way towards the establishment of a Palestinian state, even if this state is not established immediately.

Haley renews her call for mental competency tests: Congress has become a nursing home

US presidential candidate Nikki Haley mocked Congress as "the most privileged nursing home," renewing her call for mental competency tests for officials over a certain age.
"Don't you think it's finally time to put term limits in Washington, D.C.? Don't you think we need mental competency tests for anyone over 75," Haley said during a rally in Conway, South Carolina.

He added: “Now let me say this, I am not disrespecting anyone when I say this. We all know people who are 75 years old who can outperform us And then there is Joe Biden. Congress has become the most privileged nursing home in the country.”

She stressed that it is important for American voters to know that those who make decisions about the future of the economy and national security are “at the top of their game.”

Haley, a former US ambassador to the United Nations, has repeatedly targeted the ages of her political opponents, including President Biden, who is 81 and the oldest serving US president, and former President Donald Trump, who is 77.

Haley, 52, in September defended a "younger generation" of congressional leaders following an incident in which Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared to freeze while addressing reporters.
