During the mid 19780's, Mr. Jabara was instrumental in exposing the Nixon administration's
"Operation Boulder" program against Arabs and Arab-Americans, which included deportations,
surveillance, and harassment campaigns. He was directly involved in the issues, himself the
victim of a coordinated campaign of government surveillance. In 1985, he finally won a long
legal battle that forced the FBI to destroy the records it had maintained concerning his exercise
of activities protected by the First Amendment. He has written numerous articles and lectured
extensively at universities around the U.S. on civil rights and foreign policy issues. He is
the author of a monograph on Armistice Law and co-edited a book on Middle East politics.

Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) since its founding in 1980. In July 1986, the board unanimously
elected him president of the 18,000 member origination, the largest grass-roots Arab-American
organization dedicated to defending the political rights and promoting the cultural heritage of
he more than three million Americans of Arab descent. He closed his law office in Detroit after
twenty years of practice and move to the nation's capitol to assume his new position with ADC.
Mr. Jabara served as president of the ADC until 1990.
In 1994 he moved to New York City to work as defense counsel in an eight-month federal criminal
prosecution after which he was admitted to the New York State Bar. He now lives and practices
law in New York City. Since September 11th he has frequently spoken out on behalf of immigrants
detained after the World Trade Towers incident. He is married to Holly Maguigan who teaches at
