Prominent Islamists

Individuals Associated with: United Association for Studies and Research (UASR)

The United Association for Studies and Research (UASR) was founded in 1989 by senior Hamas operative Musa Abu Marzook (who also funded the establishment of HLF), as the media-relations headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. While as a public entity the UASR appears to be defunct, many former leaders of UASR went on to positions within CAIR, including Anisa Abdel-Fattah (AKA Caroline F. Keeble), Mohamed Nimer, and Nabil Sadoun, who was deported in 2010 after not disclosing his ties to UASR on his visa application.
