Maha Elsamnah — Family matriarch
Known as the female head of the Khadr family, Maha Elsamnah was born in Palestine but eventually moved to Canada where she married her husband.
She’s been quoted as saying that she didn’t want to raise her children in Canada because they would have become involved in “drugs and homosexual relationships.”
When the Khadr family moved to Afghanistan in the 1980s, Elsamnah and her husband reportedly enrolled their sons in an al Qaeda training camp.
