One of the central tenets of the red/green (leftist/Islamic) alliance is Jew-hatred, because it is central to Islam, as is racism and misogyny — also central to the Democrat party. The Democrats were/are the party of slavery. Makes sense that the party is rife with blackface. The calls for Virginia’s Gov. Ralph Northam to resign have mounted after racist yearbook photos surfaced, but he just laughs. Northam acknowledged last weekend to having worn blackface. Virginia lieutenant governor is charged with sexual misconduct. And Attorney General Mark Herring, 57, who has expressed gubernatorial ambitions and called four days ago for Northam to resign, admitted in a statement he donned blackface paint at a party.
Now this. A website has catalogued some of Ibraheem Samirah’s posts. Samirah is the Democrats’ candidate in a special election for a state House seat. The writings include him saying it was worse to send money to Israel than to the Ku Klux Klan, and wishing former Israeli Prime Minister would “burn a million times for every innocent soul you killed.”
“I’d say worse…[than the KKK]”
On August 3, 2014, Samirah added his comment to a post titled “Music Legend Brian Eno: Funding Israel is Like ‘Sending Money to the KKK.”
Samirah’s comment? “I’d say worse, but I’ll go along with Eno on this one.”
Samirah opposes Israel’s right to exist
Samirah’s objections to Israel go back to its founding and to Israel’s right to exist. When he speaks of “Israeli occupation,” he emphasizes that in his view the “Israeli occupation” started with the founding of Israel in 1948.
“the 66 year old Israeli Occupation”
On July 19, 2014, he posted a comment at BU Today, stating:
“Why is it that Boston University’s publishing body finds it pertinent to speak of Jerusalem’s history rather than its, currently, very hot scene due to the 66 year old Israeli occupation. I am a Jerusalemite, my last 9 great grandfathers from my father’s side and all my great grandfathers from my moms side originitating [sic] from within the old city walls of Jerusalem, and I find this article to be biased and out of place with regards to timing. Boston University: stop your attempts at distorting the current headlines that are exposing the occupation.”
“…stolen by the Israeli government, washed off as the Promised Land for Jews”
On July 23, 2014, Samirah put up a lengthy post on Facebook about Israel, Jews, the Holocaust and the BDS movement. The post is quoted below in full, followed by the screenshot:
“Many of my friends feel that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, specifically on the topic of who has the full right to the land, is a confusing one. I will respond to this in a very lawful, logical and fair manner, so please bare [sic] with me.
A large percentage of palestinians have documentation of property ownership, before the formation of the strictly Jewish state of Israel, whether that be from the British mandate colonizations or the Ottoman empire (that administered the land for hundreds of year) before that, supplemented by witnesses in the form of pictures, videos, people etc. All these pieces of information are still around and can be utilized to reach the true owners. I am a Palestinian and I dont know one family that doesnt have its evidence handy from 66 years ago.
My grandfather had hundreds of acres and properties in and around Jerusalem, passed down, that he could not access because it was stolen by the Israeli government, washed off as the Promised Land for Jews only (using the Torah and Zionist ideology, a 3000 yo religious book and a 100 yo Jew-only philosophy) as reference points. Furthermore this resulted in our lands being given to, mainly, European Jews fleeing their homes in Europe due to the Holocaust.
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.
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 participated in the protests in Egypt in the summer of 2013. Rabaa Square in Cairo was occupied by armed encampments of supporters of the deposed president (and Muslim Brotherhood leader) Mohamed Morsi. The protesters opposed the Egyptian government that had deposed Morsi (background here). Samirah states “I was with the protesters, in Rabaa square, just 11 days before the massacre took place…”
Eleven days after Samirah left, and after weeks of failed negotiations, the government and protesters engaged in a conflict that killed hundreds.
Samirah’s statement is excerpted below followed by the screenshot. His words suggest that the experience was formative and deeply tied to his identity and purpose.
This statement was made only five months before he became the Democratic candidate for the 86th District in the Virginia Assembly.
“I wish to not take away from the death of the 900+ protestors, yet it’s hard for me to imagine that 11 days separated me from death in Cairo with the protesters. 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. That democracy shall live on, no matter how desperately it’s enemies want to destroy it.
I have still not come to terms with the event, what needs to be done to reconcile with the grotesqueness of the event. It’s more than just holding the perpetrators accountable….”
Virginia Dems add anti-Semitism accusation to party’s troubles
Candidate in state House special election apologizes for bashing Israel
Ibraheem Samirah, Democrats’ candidate in a special election for a state House seat later this month, apologized Friday for anti-Israel comments from earlier this decade, saying that while he made them, the fact that they are rising now is a “slander campaign.”
Dr. Samirah, who was born in the U.S. but calls himself a “second-generation Palestinian refugee,” said he wrote the offending comments five years ago on Facebook, and says they were the musings of his college mind, which “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,” he said in a statement Friday.
He also released a statement from his fraternity at American University, the historically Jewish Sigma Alpha Mu, which said it is “unequivocally false” to call him anti-Semitic
Dr. Samirah, a dentist, is running against Republican Greg Nelson and independent candidate Connie Haines Hutchinson.
A website cataloged some of Dr. Samirah’s old posts. The writings include him saying it was worse to send money to Israel than to the Ku Klux Klan, and wishing former Israeli Prime Minister would “burn a million times for every innocent soul you killed.”
The flap comes as Virginia Democrats are reeling from rape and racism allegations against the state’s governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general, all of them Democrats.
Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring have both admitted to wearing blackface in the 1980s, while Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is denying allegations from two women that he raped them, one while in college and the other a few years later.
The House election is slated for Feb. 19.
