TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Evans revealed the issue at the Jerusalem Post Annual Conference last Sunday.
"I can tell you that when I met with the Saudi crown prince, I asked him about his view about the Jews and Christians. He told me, 'I like both of them. Tell why? Because my mother (nanny) was one of them'," Evans said.
Evans said that he was surprised of hearing such a secret, quoting bin Salman as saying that "the manager of my father's house who raised me up was an Ethiopian evangelical Jew'."
Evans also said that after visiting multiple Persian Gulf states, “the leaders are more pro-Israel than a lot of Jews,” specifically praising Mohammad bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.
The warm ties between Israel and some Persian Gulf nations have angered many in Muslim states.
The new friendship between Israel and Saudi Arabia remained strong in the wake of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, taking many by surprise.
