Ammar Campa-Najjar is a candidate for Congress in California’s 50th District, for the election in 2020. Ammar was also a candidate in 2018 but was defeated by Duncan Hunter.
In 2017, Ammar wrote an opinion article for The Hill and stated that he attended the same mosque as three of the terrorist hijackers that carried out September 11th terror attacks in 2001.
I attended an Islamic school in San Diego as a child. The school was part of a mosque called Masjid Abu Baker, where hundreds of people prayed and maintained strong relations with local elected and law enforcement officials.
I knew of three men at that mosque, Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour, who were issued visas. At the time they were faint figures of my childhood; now their actions haunt us all forever.
Those three men were among the 19 terrorist hijackers who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.
The three 9/11 hijackers aren’t the only terrorists that Ammar has connections to. As it came out during the 2018 election, Ammar is the grandson of a terrorist. Ammar’s grandfather, Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar also known as Abu Youssef, was a member of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September, which took eleven Israeli Olympic team members hostage and killed them in 1972. Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar helped mastermind the terror attack, known as the Munich massacre. Al-Najjar was assassinated for his involvement in the massacre.
It seems that Ammar is a magnet for terrorists…Or maybe he is one himself?
