WEST BANK (Dispatches) – A Zionist entrepreneur, who is a former naval officer on a submarine, is looking forward to selling electric trucks to the Saudis, in a new deal that reflects the unofficial normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and the occupying regime.
Asher Bennett, the brother of the former prime minister Naftali Bennett and the founder of the London-based e-truck maker Tevva Motors, is another Zionist entrepreneur in the growing stream of those seeking business in Saudi Arabia which still resists acknowledging diplomatic ties but functions on the basis of its friendly unofficial policies towards the Zionist regime.
“There’s a lot of interest in the Persian Gulf for our technologies, so I’m here from time to time,” Bennett said on the second day of the Future Investment Initiative conference.
In an interview at the King Abdulaziz Convention Center, the site of the conference in the Saudi capital, the Zionist entrepreneur said he was invited to Saudi Arabia last year and the trip was an eye-opener to him.
As Saudi Arabia is setting new environmental standards to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, Bennett thinks this is the perfect chance for him to do business with the kingdom.
Like Bennett, who has American parents, many Zionists are dual citizens and face few restrictions on entering the Arab country. In other cases, Saudi officials have granted special visas to admit Zionists, particularly tech executives, without a second nationality.
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and de facto leader Mohammad bin Salman has in the past expressed admiration for the occupying regime’s tech industry and said he sees the regime as a “potential ally.”
Zionist companies are increasingly being allowed to operate in the Saudi kingdom despite the fact that Riyadh has not joined the 2020 Abraham Accords, which normalized diplomatic relations between the regime and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, some of which are Saudi Arabia’s key Arab allies in the region.
In 2020, following the regime’s then-premier Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Riyadh where he met with Mohammad bin Salman, Riyadh granted permission to Zionist airlines to use its airspace, hours before the first flight from the occupied territories to the UAE was set to take off.
In May 2022, sources said a high-ranking Zionist official visited Saudi Arabia and met with a senior Saudi official, fueling speculation that the two sides could be taking reciprocal steps toward the “normalization” of their relations.
