When asked about his first trip to Israel, Saud said that he had ever experienced such a feeling before.

“I heard about Israel from Google, Youtube. I did not expect my dream will come true. I don’t know how to express my feelings. Very wonderful -like i’m in heaven,” he said.

The Saudi blogger said that what he experienced there is contrary to what the media portray.

 “It’s not right at all. It’s very amazing,” Saud said, claiming that there is coexistence between people of different religions. He said that everything is “perfect” about Israel, claiming that Israel wants peace in the Middle East.

The recent controversial video comes a few weeks after  Palestinians drove the blogger out of the Al Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied East Jerusalem.

The blogger angered Palestinians after he posted a video expressing love for Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In May, Saud also shared a video where he expressed his desire to visit Israel.

“I wish there was a diplomatic relationship between my country and Israel. We have a lot to do to make our Middle East greater than ever.  Please support peace and I invite all of you to visit my country, and hopefully, I can visit your country. Thank you so much and God bless you.”
