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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
