My hunch, though, is that he was not poor.
I’m skeptical he could have liquidated quite as quickly as he evidently did, were he poor.
And, for some reason, rational, or not, I just don’t think he was poor/is poor.
I second your hunch. A lot of the moozies I see around here are driving around in SUVs, Lexuses (Lexi?) or BMWs. I see women sporting that hijab thing in upscale neighborhoods. The monstrous mosque they built is over between Hilliard and Dublinabout as far from any ghetto as you can get!
