ISIS or whatever you care to call it is Sunni. Saudi Arabia is Wahhabist and strongly anti-Shia, so they've been willing to fund ISIS.

Not sure if "funding Isis" is the right description for some Saudi business.
The better wording would have been 'channeling funds' towards Isis. It sounds less offensive in a political situation, especially since the Saudis and USA are on the same team regarding ISIS!

Just thinking aloud!
