UPDATE: VA Democrat’s Post Declaring Israel WORSE Than The KKK Still LIVE
Still live on the Facebook page of Democratic candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates Ibraheem S. Samirah are three anti-Semitic posts from several years ago, despite Big League Politics’ Thursday reporting exposing his racism.
In one of his posts, he compared Israelis to the KKK.
“Ariel Sharon, burn. Burn a million times for every innocent soul you killed. Hell is excited to have you,” he said in another post. (Archived here)
“Most Israeli teenagers not only want to cover up the murders in their name, but they have younf urges that need to be released somehow,” he said in another. “Tinder’s perfect for that.” (Archived here)
Big League Politics reported yesterday:
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.
Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, urged Samirah to explain his anti-Semitism, or to drop out of the race completely.
Naturally, Samirah’s official Twitter account describes him as a “progressive.”
“Dentist, community organizer, Muslim American and progressive Democratic candidate for the House of Delegates in Virginia’s 86th district!” his bio says.
So far, Samirah has not commented on the issue.
