Sheikh Abdel-Sattar Abdel-Jabbar (عبدالستار عبد الجبار) is one of the founding members of the joint Arab-Kurd Sunni Muslim Clerics Association.

On behalf of the Association, he denounced the kidnapping of journalists and aid workers following the abduction of Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot by a group allegedly called the Islamic Army in Iraq.

Reports indicated that he was detained by U.S. and Iraqi forces along with his two sons and neighbor on October 21, 2004 in a raid on the mosque compound where he was living; however, the U.S. military denied that he had been arrested.
