Al Mujil, a member of the International Islamic Relief Organization, used to conduct fundraising for al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia. He was recently designated as a terrorist financier by the U.S. Treasury Department and his assets were freezed. Such actions have affected al Qaeda's budget and it is evident from the rush of public pleas for financial help coming from al Qaeda leaders.
