A Kuwaiti Islamist member of Parliament Monday proposed legislation calling for members and supporters of Lebanon's Hezbollah movement to be sentenced to up to 20 years in jail.The Supreme Court in Kuwait last month convicted 21 Shiites of forming a "terrorist cell" with ties to Iran and Hezbollah and plotting attacks in the Gulf state.Last week, Iranian and Kuwaiti media reported that Kuwait had ordered the expulsion of the Iranian ambassador and 14 other diplomats over Tehran's backing of the "terrorist cell". Iran said the allegation is baseless.Last year, Kuwait convicted 23 men – one Iranian and the rest Kuwaiti – of spying for Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah.Iran has denied any involvement in the case.
