Thousands of Kuwaitis and Arabs living in the oil-rich state rallied Monday in support of the militant group Hizbullah. The rally, organized by political movements and student unions, was the largest protest in US-friendly Kuwait against Israel and Washington since the fighting between the Jewish state and Hizbullah began 27 days ago. "The language of jihad and resistance is the only language the enemy understands," Islamist lawmaker Jamal al-Kandari told the crowd. Many waived yellow Hizbullah flags, posters of its leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah and banners, including one that read: "To the American ambassador: your stay is over, leave Kuwait."
