Sheikh Saleh al-Sheikh is the president of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a self-described Saudi-based charity (with chapters in 55 countries) that has long been suspected of having ties to terrorism. Federal officials raided WAMY’s Alexandria office on May 28, 2004 to look for evidence of such ties. Al-Sheikh is also the Saudi minister of Islamic affairs and the “superintendent of all foundation activities” for the al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, which has had its assets seized by the United States and Saudi Arabia for ties to terrorism.
