Overview

Lina Abu-Samrah [Lina Abu-Samrah Salaymeh] has spread antisemitism, whitewashed a terrorist and promoted incitement. She has also spread hatred of Israel and expressed support for anti-Israel agitators.

On March 15, 2021, Abu-Samrah posted to her social media that she started a full-time job as a behavioral therapist.

As of August 2021, Abu-Samrah’s LinkedIn page said she graduated from Georgia State University (GSU) with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2020, and was located in Lawrenceville, Georgia. 

Spreading Antisemitism

Abu-Samrah retweeted a March 20, 2018 tweet that read: “Falasteen ibladna wal yahood iklabna📣📣[Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs].”

Abu-Samrah retweeted a January 4, 2018 tweet that read: “How is this not all over the news?? Kus om il yahood [F**k the jews].”

Whitewashing a Terrorist

In the wake of the “Knife Intifada,” Abu-Samrah retweeted an October 19, 2016 tweet that read: “Israeli soldiers shot and killed 19-year-old #Palestinian girl Raheeq Yousef... which happens to be my cousin's wife.”

On October 19, 2016, Raheeq Yousef was shot and killed after drawing a knife and reportedly refusing orders to stop while advancing on Israeli Border Patrol officers.  

In October 2015, there was an upsurge in violence across Israel incited by Palestinian political and religious leaders. The wave of stabbings, known as the “Knife Intifada,” was characterized by young Palestinians throughout the country stabbing and attempting to stab Israeli civilians.

Promoting Incitement

Abu-Samrah retweeted a May 9, 2021 tweet that read: “90,000 Palestinians pledge in unison to defend Al Aqsa and Jerusalem - a message of defiance that is reverberating around the world. Israel is suffocating Jerusalem, but Jerusalem finds a way to rise.”

In May 2021, violent clashes broke out between Palestinian worshippers and Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa compound following claims the Al-Aqsa Mosque was in danger. The subsequent incitement was a leading factor in Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorists firing over 4,300 rockets from Gaza into Israel later that month. Israel responded by launching “Operation Guardian of the Walls (OGW),” carrying out targeted military strikes in Gaza. Allegations of Jews “threatening” to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque have been a traditional pretext for Arab attacks on Jews predating the State of Israel.

The tweet included a video where worshippers can be heard chanting “be-ruh be-dam nifdik ya Aqsaبروح ودم نفديك يااقصى “ [with spirit, with blood we will redeem you Aqsa]. 

The chant: “be-ruh be-dam nifdik ya Aqsaبروح ودم نفديك يااقصى [With spirit, with blood, we will redeem you, Aqsa]” can be heard [00:01:14] at anti-Israel rallies [00:02:19] in America. Yasser Arafat popularized the chant [00:00:23], which is invoked by anti-Israel protesters regarding a variety of causes. 

Hatred of Israel

On March 9, 2016, Abu-Samrah tweeted: “Khara 3la Israel [S**t on Israel].” 

On August 7, 2016, Abu-Samrah tweeted: “F**k Israel.”

On December 10, 2017, Abu-Samrah tweeted: “Israel can't have a capital bc [because] Israel doesn't exist🤷🏻‍♀️.”

In December 2017, the U.S. government announced its decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Abu-Samrah retweeted a March 31, 2021 tweet that read: “not even one day after his [Majd Barbar’s] release from isr*eli prisons IOF [Israeli Occupation Forces] detained him once again. pure f**king psychological torture. palestinians can never be happy. i f**king hate israel.”

Majd Barbar was sentenced to “20 years in jail on charges of affiliation” with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and for “his role in armed resistance” in 2001. Barbar reportedly formed “an armed resistance group” in Jerusalem, during the Second Intifada.  

“IOF” stands for Israeli Occupation Forces, a derogatory name used by anti-Israel activists to demonize Israel’s army in place of its official name, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

On April 16, 2021, Abu-Samrah tweeted: “It seems every year during Ramadan Israel starts bombing Gaza. Every single year with no hesitation. If u still think their attacks are political, they’re not. They’re personal.”

In April 2021, at the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a series of viral videos circulated on Palestinian social media showing Palestinian youths physically assaulting Jews in Jerusalem. Israeli police and civilians were reportedly attacked by rioters with firecrackers, stones and glass bottles. Amid the escalation, Hamas fired rockets into Israel from Gaza. Israel responded by striking a Hamas weapons manufacturing site, a weapon smuggling tunnel and a military post.
 
During OGW, Abu-Samrah retweeted a May 14, 2021 tweet that read: “Isrealis murder the ppl who welcomed them into THEIR land when they had nowhere to go. Shame on you. Disgusting & disgraceful monsters. #f**kisreal #GenociedinGaza #shameonisrael #FreePalestine #isrealterrorist #ZionismIsTerrorism.”

The May 14, 2021 retweet was accompanied by another tweet that read: “In 1947 Israelis came to Palestinian land, saying ‘The German destroyed our families and homes. Don't you destroy our hopes.’ The Palestinians greeted them warmly, but Israelis stabbed them in the back. #FreePalestine #IsraelTerrorist #IsraelTerrorism #Shameonisrael #Zionists.”

U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s 2019 claim that Palestinians saved Holocaust survivors was denounced by politicians and described by leading historian Benny Morris as “completely ignorant” or a lie.

Rather the British issued a “White Paper,” that severely limited Jewish immigration to Mandatory Palestine between 1939 and 1945, in response to Arab opposition to and riotsagainst Jewish immigration.  

Supporting Anti-Israel Agitators

Abu-Samrah retweeted a December 28, 2017 tweet from anti-Israel professor Steven Salatia that read: “Zionists want to destroy Ahed Tamimi not only because she embodies their deepest anxieties about Palestinian resistance, but also because she refuses to hide her contempt for the sh**ty little colony they adore.”

In 2014, The University of Illinois withdrew an offer of employment to Steven Salaita after becoming aware of his anti-Semitic tweets. One tweet, posted shortly after Hamas kidnapped three teenage Israeli high school students, read: “You may be too refined to say it, but I’m not: I wish all the f**king West Bank settlers would go missing.”

Ahed Tamimi has a long history of physically attacking Israeli soldiers. Tamimi is the daughter of Bassem Tamimi, who is known for exploiting young children as political props in staged confrontations with Israeli soldiers.

Abu-Samrah retweeted a December 25, 2017 tweet that read: “The child prisoner #AhedTamimi today in the Israeli occupation court session today. Free #AhedTamimi ✌🏻✌🏻🇵🇸.”

On December 10, 2017, Abu-Samrah tweeted a photo of a Neturei Karta member and captioned the tweet: “Real Jews support Palestine.”

Neturei Karta is an anti-Israel Jewish fringe group whose leader, Yisroel Dovid Weiss, was excommunicated from many Ultra-Orthodox Jewish groups for participating in a 2006 Holocaust denial conference in Iran. The group opposes Zionism on religious grounds and has called to dismantle Israel.
