New Documents On Al-Rajhis Shed No Light On SAAR


The Wall Street Journal has apparently gained access to new documents detailing the how the Saudi Al Rajhi Bank has maintained accounts and accepted donations for Saudi charities designated as Al Qaeda terrorists fronts. Unfortunately no new information is provided on the role of the Al-Rajhi family with respect to the SAAR Foundation, a network of Virginia charities related to the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. that was raided in 2002 as part of the Operation Greenquest investigation into terrorism financing. At the time, the Al-Rajhi family was said to be the primary financier of SAAR but no prosecutions have yet emerged from the investigation.
