Born in Kuwait to Egyptian parents, Abdulrahman and his family moved to Canada when he was 7 in 2005. From a young age, Abdulrahman suffered from bullying and peer pressure in Kuwait. In primary school, he experienced what he called “nationality prejudice”, as he, an Egyptian, did not fit in with his fellow peers who were Kuwaiti. Canada provided Abdulrahman with a new start where he enjoyed his new school and made friends, stating that “the students all treated each other the same.”

"What makes this story even more disturbing is that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) knowingly participated in this sting with the FBI. They unlawfully obtained Abdulrahman’s medical records that described his mental health vulnerabilities and provided them to the FBI to better manipulate this damaged youth.
This raises serious human rights concerns of discriminatory investigations, targeting vulnerable youths such as Abdulrahman, who had no previous history of violence or criminality, until drawn in by a U.S. government actively involved in developing the plot, persuading and pressuring the target to participate."
