Kuwaiti banks sued for funding genocide of Christians

June 16, 2016

A California nonprofit has sued two Kuwaiti banks and a sheikh, Hajjaj al-Ajmi, for funding the genocide of Christians in the Middle East.

Courthouse News Service identified the nonprofit as St. Francis of Assisi in Alameda.

“ISIS relies upon an open, notorious, well known, and formalized system of terrorist financing which incentivizes and incites the killings and displacement of the Assyrian Christians,” the nonprofit stated in its lawsuit, which was filed in federal court under the Patriot Act of 2001.
