In February 2014, the Kuwaiti KUNA press agency announced that a Montreal high school administered by Samer Al-Majthoub (aka Samer Majzoub) received an amount equivalent to $US 70,671 from the embassy of Kuwait in Canada. The embassy was acting on behalf of Kuwait’s Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs.
Recent GMBDW articles have highlighted other recent contributions made by Kuwait authorities to Muslim Brotherhood organizations in Switzerland and in Poland.
In 2001, Samer Majzoub was on the board of another Islamic school in Montreal, the Institut d’enseignement Dar Al Iman when it received a donation from the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY). In 2012, WAMY’s charitable status was revoked after the Canada Revenue Agency discovered that it funded the al-Qaeda-linked Benevolence International Foundation (BIF). A money transfer from WAMY to this al-Qaeda affiliate took place in 2001, the same year that Dar al-Iman, then managed by Samer Majzoub, Lazar Aissaoui and Mohamed Zrig received money from the Saudi terror-funding WAMY.
