General Hisham M. Jaber (born September 13, 1942) (Arabic: اللواء الركن هشام جابر‎) is a retired Lebanese Major General and political researcher.

Early life and education[edit]

Born in Nabatieh, in South Lebanon, he is the grandson of historian Muhammad Jaber Al Safa, and great-grandson of sheikh Ahmad Reda. After graduating from the Lebanese Army Military Academy, he was sent to the French postgraduate école d'application, in Saint-Maixent-l'École, for specialized infantry training.[citation needed]

He then followed intensive courses in public relations and information at the Defense Information School (DINFOS) in Indiana, U.S. in 1976. He continued his studies in psychological warfare in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In 1982, Jaber graduated from the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, also earning a master's degree in mass communication from the University of Kansas[citation needed].

Jaber then obtained a DEA (diplôme d'études approfondies) in contemporary history at the Sorbonne (Paris IV), Paris, France in 1993, and later in 1997, a Ph.D. in modern political history also at the Sorbonne. His four-hour thesis defense was attended by several political figures, including French Foreign Minister Hervé de Charette, French deputy Gérard Bapt and Lebanese statesman Raymond Eddé.[citation needed]
