The visit to Israel by a Saudi delegation

The reaction of Saudi people (of all stripes really) was overwhelming. Just search the key on twitter:عشقي_في_اسرائيل?src=hash
Even regime journalists, like Jamal Khashuqji, opposed the visit and normalization with Israel (of course, Kashuqji declared his allegiance to the regime while doing that).  Some Saudis on twitter even cross the permitted political boundaries in registering their opposition to any normalization with Israel.  I have always believed that the Saudi people are among the most pro-Palestinian supporters.
