The US Congress passed a unanimous bill Saturday to outlaw aid to Saudi Arabia due to the country's support of terror organizations including Hamas and lack of tolerance towards other religions, Israel Radio reported Saturday morning. The US has financed Saudi military exercises and arms over the last few years and according to the new bill will stop doing so. Representatives of the Democratic Party said that it was unfeasible that the US would finance the army of the country which produces the largest amount of oil in the world and at the same time many of its citizens have joined terror groups including al Qaida chief Osama bin Laden. The Senate was expected to authorize the bill but President George Bush would likely veto.
