Ibraheem Samirah, the Democrat nominee in Virginia’s 86th district House of Delegates election on February 19th, issued a statement Friday evening apologizing for anti-Israel and anti-Semitic social media posts that were published Thursday by Big League Politics. Samirah, a Muslim-American born to Palestinian refugees, said that giving money to Israel is worse than giving money to the Ku Klux Klan and wished for the late Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon to “burn,” in addition to other hateful screeds.
“This slander campaign is using my 5-year old Facebook posts from my impassioned college days, posts that upon reflection and with the blessing of time, I sincerely regret and apologize for. I am so sorry that my ill-chosen words added to the pain of the Jewish community and I seek your understanding and compassion as I prove to you our common humanity,” Samirah stated.
Samirah’s Republican opponent, Air Force veteran Gregg Nelson, is not buying it.
“The recent timeline of racially insensitive remarks and actions made by Virginia Democrats has taken our Commonwealth by storm. Shortly following the news of the failed HB 2491, news broke that Governor Northam wore ‘blackface’. Then Mark Herring admitted doing the same. All the while numerous alleged sexual assault allegations started piling up against Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax. There is no doubt about the turmoil at the top of the ticket,” Nelson said in response.
“The metaphorical domino has since fallen here into our Special Election in District 86. Democrat nominee, Ibraheem Samirah, was quoted in a 2014 Facebook post stating that funding Israel is “worse” than sending money to the KKK. Taking from the playbook of his statewide elected idols, Samirah blamed his “impassioned” college days for his actions. This is simply inexcusable on all levels. Racism has no place in our Commonwealth. Especially from individuals in office or seeking office,” Nelson stated.
Ibraheem Samirah is the Democratic nominee for Virginia House of Delegates in the 86th District. His election takes place later this month, on February 19th. Samirah is up against U.S. Airforce veteran Gregg Nelson in the special election.
Samirah is also a rabid Israel hater who speaks of the “Israeli occupation” and recently vowed to “avenge” the deaths of Egyptian protesters, according to his own social media posts, which have been provided to Big League Politics.
The revelations about Ibraheem Samirah’s anti-semitism come while an embattled Virginia Democrat Party struggles to maintain control of power amid blackface and KKK hood scandals plaguing Governor Ralph Northam (READ the story Big League Politics first broke wide open HERE.) and Attorney General Mark Herring — who called for Northam to resign amidst the first blackface scandal — and credible sexual assault allegations made by Stanford Fellow Vanessa Tyson, which this reporter also reported first.
Samirah has agitated for the BDS movement, which he worked for as the co-founder of American University’s Jewish Voice for Peace chapter.
Ibraheem Samirah told former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon to burn in Hell after Sharon died — later deleting his Facebook message.
“Ariel Sharon, burn. Burn a million times for every innocent soul you killed. Hell is excited to have you,” Samirah said.
Samirah said that sending money to Israel is “worse” than sending money to the Ku Klux Klan.
He also made vicious comments about Israeli teenagers.
“This begs me to ask the question: What does my family have to do with a Holocaust that occurred thousands of miles away and henceforth, why does my family have to lose their property rights because of its occurrence? The documentation my grandfather holds is valid in the international courts at the Hague, but Israel does not recognize them nor most international law for that matter,” Samirah wrote in 2014. “Theres a huge need, within Israel, to cover up its illegal occupation and crimes, hence why its being sanctioned by the world through the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement, a hot and coming movement thats been on the rise for 10 years now. This is all not irrelevant!”
“I do not know what other message God is sending me other than that I am not dead because I am to avenge for the murders of innocent protesters not just in Egypt, but in the entire world,” Samirah said, referring to anti-Sisi Egyptian protesters.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
