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.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
