Hamas good managers of money? Copperfield may be able to help.

Lol, LOL, LOL.
Had to get that out of my system.
By way of LGF at Hamas Foreign Minister 'Loses' $450k
Palestinian Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar has had $450,000 stolen from his hotel room during his current visit to Kuwait, the Itim news agency quoted the Kuwaiti media as saying Wednesday.

According to the report, al-Zahar had asked the Kuwaiti authorities to keep the theft under wraps, but the incident was confirmed by a security official at the hotel.

The foreign minister, a senior member of Hamas, is on a tour of Arab and Muslim countries to drum up funds after Israel suspended the transfer of tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority and Western donors cut off aid to the Hamas-led government.

The European Union and the United States have cut off direct aid to the Palestinian Authority over Hamas' refusal to recognize Israel, renounce violence and abide by previously signed peace agreements.

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.

Obviously they 'lost' it or they need to take lessons from David Copperfield:
Copperfield Works Magic on Bad Guys
David Copperfield has added a new trick to his repertoire: faking out robbers.

Despite being possessed of a "large amount of cash," the illusionist showed nothing but empty pockets to armed gunmen who targeted him and two female companions Sunday night in West Palm Beach, Florida, police said.

In the Palm Beach Post, Copperfield called his sleight of hand bit "reverse pickpocketing."

Don't you love the irony of life?
