Nabil Sadoun is a senior Hamas leader who founded the Hamas front group United Association for Studies and Research (UASR) with U.S. Hamas leader Musa abu Marzook, lived in the Dallas, Texas area while serving as a leader of the Hamas front group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and who was deported to Jordan from the United States in February 2010.
Background: CAIR is Hamas
“From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.” December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal (Eastern District of Virginia)
The U.S. v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (“HLF”) trial – Northern District of Texas (Dallas) 2008 – is the largest Hamas and terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history.
CAIR and its Chairman Emeritus Omar Ahmad are identified by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the US v HLF trial, and as “members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee” which is Hamas in the United States.
Furthermore, in response to CAIR’s attempt to have its name removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list in the US v HLF trial, the Department of Justice filed a memorandum with the Court stating, in part (p6): “As of the date of this response, the Court has entered into evidence a wide array of testimonial and documentary evidence expressly linking CAIR and its founders to the HLF and its principals; the Islamic Association for Palestine and its principals; the Palestine Committee in the United States, headed by Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook; and the greater HAMAS-affiliated conspiracy described in the Government’s case-in-chief.”
The presiding judge and a three (3) judge appellate panel unanimously ruled to maintain the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) on the unindicted co-conspirator list in the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history because of the abundance of evidence demonstrating CAIR’s ties to Hamas.
CAIR also received funds from other Hamas entities and organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda. In fact, a document retrieved from CAIR headquarters in Washington, D.C. reveals internal discussions at CAIR to support Osama bin Laden.
While CAIR sells itself as a “muslim civil rights” organization, the facts and evidence do not support this.
CAIR is Hamas and Hamas is a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Nabil Sadoun’s Deportation
In a February 2010, the FBI worked with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on an immigration proceeding for Hamas leader Nabil Sadoun in Dallas, Texas. The FBI declared the U.S. Palestine Committee was affiliated with Hamas which created four Hamas organizations in America: Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The FBI declaration in Sadoun’s deportation hearing stated, “(Sadoun) served as a conduit for money to HAMAS…and served as a forum where HAMAS could promote its ideology and recruit new members.”
Sadoun also made multiple donations to the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), convicted in 2008 of sending over $12 million to Hamas organizations and leaders overseas.
During a December 1992/January 1993 interview that appeared in the AI-Amal magazine, Sadoun explained he supports jihad against Israel, and explained, “I have great confidence that the solution of the Palestine problem will only be if we follow the Islamic way, which is capable to defeat the Jewish…we have to raise the spirit of Al-Jihad and the struggle, among Palestinian people and other Islamic nations. We have to support the Palestinian uprising.”
While he never directly admitted being a Hamas leader or member, Sadoun did acknowledge he was a member of CAIR during his June 4, 2003 ICE interview and his March 30, 2006 FBI interview.
Over the years while working with CAIR Sadoun made several statements about liberating Palestine, including, “”Raising the spirit of Jihad and struggle amidst the Palestinian people and the Muslim peoples.”
The FBI investigation revealed Nabil Sadoun was a member of Hamas and its associated organizations prior to the issuance of his immigrant visa on Ju1y 19, 1993 and his admission to the United States as a lawful permanent resident on August 12, 1993.
Because Sadoun failed to disclose his membership or affiliations on his application for an immigrant visa filed with the U.S. Department of State, he was charged with perjury and removed from the United States.
The 2010 case in Dallas, Texas regarding Nabil Sadoun reveal several key points: (1) Hamas, an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood, has a significant network inside the United States; (2) the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a front for the terrorist group Hamas and operates in the U.S., specifically in Texas; and (3) while Hamas/CAIR pose an imminent threat to citizens of Texas and the United States, the FBI is choosing not to indict CAIR and its leaders, not to shut down its jihadi operations, and not to seize its property and finances which is has the authority and legal duty to do.
The answer lies, in this case, with local and state police officials in Texas who should work diligently to shut down Hamas doing business as CAIR-Texas.
They have a duty to do so.
