Congressional candidate opposes relations between Israel and UAE

Christine Douglass-Williams

Leaked email messages obtained exclusively by Breitbart reveal Democratic Congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar opposes a two-state solution peace plan and also normalization of ties between the UAE and Israel.

two-state solution is not viable, but a one-state solution means the dissolution of the state of Israel, that is, the obliteration of Israel and a new genocide of the Jews. This is in accordance with the charters that govern the major groups in the Palestinian territories, including the PLO. But this truth does not faze many Democrats. Bernie Sanders vowed: “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters” after Rep. Ilhan Omar’s antisemitic tweets were disclosed. And just days ago, in a speech about the “dangers of bigotry at a memorial for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh,” Bernie Sanders included Israel “in list of countries where authoritarianism is rising.”

Ammar Campa-Najjar is the grandson of the perpetrator of the 1972 Munich Olympics jihad massacre, Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar (aka Abu Yusuf). The victims included 11 Israeli athletes.

“Leaked Messages Reveal Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar Opposes Two-State Solution,” by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, October 27, 2020:

Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, who is running for Congress in California’s 50th district, shared chat messages in which he opposed the normalization of relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel — despite publicly saying he supports peace.

In some messages, Campa-Najjar appeared to oppose the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He also suggested that Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who has opposed the two-state solution, and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who has supported it, should remain “on message” in opposition to it.

Breitbart News obtained the chat messages from a WhatsApp group in which Campa-Najjar and associates discussed politics.

Campa-Najjar is of both Mexican and Palestinian descent, and spent part of his childhood in Gaza. His father has served as a senior official in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Last month, Campa-Najjar told Breitbart News Tonight that he supports peace between Israelis and Palestinians. He also repudiated — again — the views and actions of his grandfather, who was a Palestinian terrorist, and was killed by Israeli special forces long before Campa-Najjar was born.

The issue arose in Campa-Najjar’s 2018 campaign, in which he fell short of unseating Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA). (Hunter, who was under indictment during the campaign, later resigned and pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges.)

In 2012, Campa-Najjar produced and released a music video calling to “free Palestine.” His campaign told Breitbart News: “It’s promoting peace, as Ammar always has.”

However, the WhatsApp messages appear to tell a different story.

In one message, he mocked his opponent, former Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), for praising the recent peace and normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

In another message, Campa-Najjar criticized Issa for saying that Palestinians had crossed the Israeli border to kill Israelis — an accurate depiction of terrorist infiltrations into Israel.

“He’s just abandoned us,” Campa-Najjar wrote, referring to Palestinians. “Just like he abandoned his district.” (Issa formerly represented the 49th district, before retiring in 2019.)

Campa-Najjar also criticized “some Arabs in our community, in our close circles, supporting this man.” He added: “Remember that.”

Issa is also Arab American, of Lebanese descent.

In one message, Campa-Najjar informed the chat that one of his primary opponents is “Jewish.” In another, he described his opponents as “non-Arab white old men.”

He also promised to push for “real action” on behalf of the Palestinians, calling the “window” for a two-state solution “virtually closed.”

In one message, Campa-Najjar asked the group if “we” have “approached Ilhan [Omar] about not advocating [a] two state solution?”. He added: “Just think her, Rashida [Tlaib] and I should be on message together.”
