The U.S. weighs its response to Saudi Arabia following the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. There are several options under consideration and much of the stick approach may take place behind closed doors. What are those implication on the U.S.-Saudi relationship? Matthew RJ Brodsky joins i24News Senior Middle East Correspondent Mohammad al-Kassim to discuss on "Perspectives" with Tracy Alexander. Brodsky also explains why the best course of action for Israel to take is to keep a very low profile as any reaction will either fray relations with Saudi Arabia or Turkey - neither of which would be helpful given its strategic goals. Mohammad explains the impact on Palestinians in light of their views regarding the forthcoming peace proposal the U.S. plans to release shortly, in which the Saudi Crown Prince has been the Trump administration's point person.
