RICHMOND — Democrat Virginia 86th district delegate candidate Ibraheem Samirah accepted campaign contributions from Osama Abuirshaid and Rafeeq Jaber. (READ: Samirah Apologizes For Anti-Semitic Posts; Said Israel Worse Than KKK, Wished For Ariel Sharon To ‘Burn’).
Osama Abuirshaid and Rafeeq Jaber are listed as donors to Samirah’s delegate campaign, according to the Virginia Department of Elections. Samirah is up for delegate on February 19th, running against Republican Air Force veteran Gregg Nelson. Samirah erased his state senator Jennifer Boysko’s endorsement after his anti-Semitic posts came to light.
Both of these men — Abuirshaid and Jaber — were named by the Israeli government in a February 3 report on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement’s links to terrorism. Both of these men, Osama Abuirshad and Rafael Jaber, are top-ranking officials of the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).
The AMP is spun off from a group that was found guilty by a federal court of providing financial aid to Hamas. Abuirshaid and Jaber were also part of that parent group.
Samirah was the featured speaker at this past November 22-24 conference for the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), which is named in the Israeli government’s report “Terrorists In Suits.” The AMP is alternately based in Falls Church, Virginia or Illinois, according to differing official addresses. Linda Sarsour was also a featured speaker at this conference.
Lawyer Stephen Landes confirmed to Big League Politics that both of these individuals — Abuirshaid and Jaber — are named in his lawsuit for Jewish-American assassination victim David Boim, an American citizen, who was killed in Jerusalem in 1996 by members of Hamas.
Here is Samirah photographed at the AMP table at a recent Dar Al-Hijrah fundraiser.
Osama Abuirshaid and Rafael Jaber are named as senior officials for the AMP in the Israeli government’s February 3 report “Terrorists In Suits: The Ties Between NGOs promoting BDS and Terrorist Organizations.”
In 2004, a Federal court found the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) guilty of providing financial aid to Hamas. Leading figures of the Islamic Association for Palestine are now working in AMP in senior positions:
A. Sufyan Nabhan, current AMP National Board Member, was formerly IAP’s Michigan Regional Representative.
B. Osama Abuirshaid, AMP National Board Member and the NGO’s official National Policy Director. In 2015, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services disqualified him from attaining citizenship inter alia, due to lack of disclosure of his past affiliations with IAP.
C. Rafeeq Jaber was formerly IAP’s President. Jaber currently handles AMP’s finances and was a signatory on the financial reports of AJPEducational Foundation, AMP’s tax-exempt fiscal sponsor. In September 2015, he signed a petition as a representative of the AMP.”
Samirah has been identified in this video getting kicked out of a Bernie Sanders rally in 2015 for pro-Palestine activism.
Samirah, affiliated with a group trying to boycott Hewlett-Packard for its relationship with Israel, celebrated the defeat of an anti-BDS bill in Boston, which he said makes it easier for him to figure out how to pressure certain lawmakers.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.
— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) March 30, 2020
Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
