Do Muslims support Muslims

I am of the general thought that the US Government, us tax payers as it were, should not send money over seas willy nilly. Some would say not at all. But let us say, for the sake of argument, that we send money to allies and supporters. Why would we send money to people who hate us and have repeatedly called for our destruction??

This is confusing. This article states that Saudi Arabia, you know the country that exports the most oil in the world, wants the US, that is us, and the EU to continue to send money to the Palestinian "Government" under Hamas.

The question that comes to my mind is, why do not all of the oil rich countries send money to the Palestinian "Government" under Hamas? Why do these advanced, peaceful, tolerant, oil pumping countries need the West's help(anyone notice the sarcasms)? The Palestinian terrorist groups applauded the 9/11 terrorist acts, helped kill American soldiers and civilians and have been obstructionist to peace for years. Yet they are willing to ask and take our money.

If we are going to fool enough to send our money over seas, than we should be smart enough to put demands on those who take it. And we should be smart enough to send it to only allies and supporters. Again I am not arguing for or against foreign aid, just how it is administered.
