Union of Good


The Union of Good (UOG) was a world­wide coali­tion of char­i­ties head­ed by Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood leader Youssef Qaradawi and des­ig­nat­ed by the US for fund-rais­ing activ­i­ties on Hamas’ behalf. A report writ­ten by the GIOR Edi­tor iden­ti­fies the UOG and most of its trustees and mem­ber orga­ni­za­tions as asso­ci­at­ed with the Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. Israel banned the UOG’s char­i­ties in 2008 and the UOG itself was des­ig­nat­ed as a ter­ror­ist enti­ty by the Unit­ed States in the same year. How­ev­er, nei­ther Youssef Qaradawi nor any of the Trustees were sim­i­lar­ly des­ig­nat­ed. Anoth­er report by the GIOR edi­tor also dis­cuss­es four UK UOG char­i­ties as shar­ing trustees, banks, and deliv­er­ing and donat­ing aid to each oth­er and to part­ner orga­ni­za­tions in the Pales­tin­ian Ter­ri­to­ries, many of which are asso­ci­at­ed with Hamas.
