Zahar's Bad Day

Haaretz picked up on an Itim report that Hamas Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar had $450,000 stolen from his hotel room during a fund-raising trip in Kuwait. But this snippet may be even more eye-opening. Will this point be reported in the Western media?

Itim also reported that an official at the Palestinian Finance Ministry has revealed that, despite its empty coffers, the PA has funded the trip for al-Zahar and his entourage.

I'm curious where this guy got the $450,000 that was sitting around his hotel room. Are they providing foreign aid in cash these days? I suppose that if you believe the Jews control the world's banks, you wouldn't want to take a check.

Good Morning.
Nice and important post.
After reading the following: CNNI, CNN, ABC News, NY Times, Wash. Times, Wash. Post, AP, and Reuters, I didn't see a mention anywhere. Why? Isn't losing this $ a tad irresponsible?
