The May 14 article from the Associated Press, "Del. Samirah says his Muslim faith attacked at first town hall," presents lies by Del. Samirah. Specifically, Samirah says "protestors carried signs denouncing Sharia law and made pointed comments attacking his faith." My wife organized the protest outside his town hall and I made the signs. Not one of the signs had a single word having anything to do with Islam, and none of the comments at the protest mentioned his faith. Rather, these signs and statements attacked Del. Samirah's outrageous statements regarding Israel and his extreme position on abortion.
Delegate Samirah is simply being a cry-bully. He is the one who has likened supporting Israel to supporting the KKK. He is the one who was a member of an organization known as "Mass Against HP," an offshoot of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction organization that has been criticized as being a cover for anti-Semitism. That Del. Samirah would lie about his constituents exercising their First Amendment rights is disappointing, but not surprising. We deserve better in an elected representative.
