BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Saudi Arabian billionaire prince al-Walid Ibn Talal is scheduled to visit Ramallah on Tuesday and meet Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas and business leaders, a Palestinian businessman said on Saturday.

Muneeb al-Masri told Ma'an that the Saudi prince would meet him and a delegation including other Palestinian businessmen on Wednesday at the Movenpick Hotel in Ramallah.

Al-Masri confirmed that he was invited by deputy Palestinian Authority prime minister for economic affairs Muhammad Mustafa to join a reception for al-Waleed bin Talal on Tuesday.

Al-Masri said that the prince, who has a net worth of around $30 billion, is a shareholder in al-Masri's group and that his visit "will be useful and effective."

During the visit, al-Masri added, Palestinian businessmen will discuss preparations for an economic conference to be held in Palestine in August. Private sector, public sector, and civil society organizations are supposed to partake in that conference.

In addition, bin Talal is expected to announce a donation for the Jerusalem Fund, an organization that does educational and humanitarian work in Palestine. He will also address possible plans to support the Palestinian economy in general.

Why is Prince al-Walid Ibn Talal not going to the Presidential Palace to meet President Abbas? Does he prefer the Movenpick Hotel, or is it just because he has the business delegation with him? Our government has spent a lot of money making the palace nice for dignitaries when they come to visit the President.

Mel, why do you hate humanity so much? You hate your country. You hate the Middle East. You hate the Palestinians (who are the ones who stand to gain from Talal's visit). What's your problem? Small personal tool? Jealous that Talal has bazillions and all you have is an internet account and lots of time to spare?

#3:'Brain':"why do I hate humanity..."? It's not humanity I loath,it's the so-called 'leaders'who arrogantly put themselves ABOVE humanity,or cowards who kiss supremacist a*** for their own interests instead of having the COURAGE to fight for the common-good/safety of humanity with respect for international LAWS! I'd try to explain it more Brian but I don't want to over-tax your simian Zionist brain!
