Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, called on Ibraheem Samirah, the Democratic nominee in the Virginia 86th District House of Delegates race, to explain himself or drop out after Big League Politics exposed numerous anti-Semitic and anti-Israel posts from Samirah’s recent past.
“Samirah needs to immediately explain today’s explosive report. If these are in fact his words, Samirah must end his candidacy,” Hannigan stated.

Ibraheem Samirah is the Democratic nomineefor 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.
