About Us


Kassir International is a woman-owned small business that performs language, intelligence gathering, and training services to support military and civilian clients in various countries of the Middle East. Our mission is to support the ongoing effort of protecting the national security of the United States. We are a niche provider to the intelligence community.

Securing the United States is very important to us, and our country's security is largely dependent on peace in the Middle East. We know that vetting people and understanding what part of the Arab world they come from is critical to persuading them to participate in promoting peaceful resolutions in the Middle East. Kassir International uses language and communication to build alliances and relationships with customers and candidates throughout the region. We are a liaison between our government and military and the Middle East.

Our Philosophy

• Maintain a supportive environment focused on employee growth.
• Maintain a staff of highly qualified professionals driven by customer satisfaction.

• Provide our customers with quality services at a cost-effective price.
• Build strategic alliances and partnerships.
