Kuwaiti Islamist group calls for funding Hamas
KUWAIT CITY - A Kuwaiti Islamist group on Wednesday called on the oil-rich emirate and other Arab and Muslim countries to boost financial aid to Palestinians in the face of Western threats to freeze funding for a Hamas-led government.
Of course they would, that's the 'Salafi' part.
The Salafi Movement, one of three Sunni Islamic groups in Kuwait, urged the government in a statement to increase aid to Palestinians, provide loans and grants and to contribute to rebuilding Palestinian infrastructure. It also called for fund-raising campaigns by charities, allowing monthly deduction from salaries and for guns and ammo providing special care to Palestinians who are killed or wounded by Israeli forces.
