Ammar Campa-Najjar is the grandson of Muhammad Yusuf Al-Najjar (aka Abu Yusuf), a senior member of the Palestinian terrorist organization Black September , which carried out numerous terror attacks including the Munich massacre where 11 Israeli Olympic athletes were tortured, castrated, and massacred during the 1972 Summer Olympics . His grandfather was the mastermind of that attack.
In 1973, Mossad agents killed Yusuf al-Najjar and his wife in Beirut in retaliation for the attack. Campa-Najjar’s father is Yasser Najjar, a former Palestinian Authority official.
“Ammar Campa-Najjar is working to infiltrate Congress,” the narrator in the video says. “He’s used three different names to hide his family’s ties to terrorism.” Campa-Najjar is a 29-year-old of Palestinian-Mexican descent who worked in the Obama White House and Labor Department. (He ‘claims’ to be a Christian, just like Obama ‘claimed’ to be Christian)
While speaking to a GOP women’s club in Ramona, California, on Monday, Hunter said he saw that the 29-year-old removed “Yasser” (his father’s name) from his legal name and add “Joseph,” the Los Angeles Timesreported.
“His [campaign] signs should actually say: ‘Ammar Joseph Campa’ or something,” Hunter reportedly told the group. “That is how hard, by the way, that the radical Muslims are trying to infiltrate the U.S. government. You had more Islamists run for office this year at the federal level than ever before in U.S. history.”
The video posted onto Hunter’s YouTube account also said that Campa-Najjar also suggested he is tied to Muslim Brotherhood and had been endorsed by Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). In response to Hunter’s campaign advertisement, Campa-Najjar said “the congressman knows I’m not responsible for my family’s actions.” (An apple doesn’t fall far from the tree)
Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife are fighting charges that they illegally used campaign funds for personal expenses. Hunter's opponent California Democratic congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar was barely on anyone’s radar last week in his longshot bid against GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter, in an overwhelmingly Republican district.
But after Hunter’s indictment Tuesday on corruption charges, including allegations of lavish personal spending with campaign funds, Campa-Najjar is suddenly a contender.
With his boosted chances, though, has come scrutiny of his dark family past -- his grandfather was a member of the Palestinian Black September terror group that killed 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich.
The 29-year-old political neophyte, who has both Mexican and Palestinian heritage, has been quick and unequivocal in separating himself from Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar.
Campa-Najjar is keen to point out he has never met his grandfather, whose death at the hands of Israeli commandos happened 16 years before Ammar was born. In a statement this week, the former Obama administration Labor Department official used his disavowal of his grandfather to take a not-so-subtle dig at his opponent.
"I'm happy to take responsibility for my own choices and my own decisions," he said. "I think other men are responsible for their own crimes, whether it's somebody who I share a lineage with and nothing else, or a sitting congressman whose being indicted and could be facing serious charges in the future."
Campa-Najjar, who claimed to be a Catholic Christian, is the son of a Palestinian Muslim father (he spent part of his childhood in Gaza) and a Catholic Mexican-American mother. His campaign also says while he’s proud of his heritage, he is “American first.” In an interview, Campa-Najjar told Fox News he isn’t concerned that his family history could harm the campaign.

Israeli media first drew attention to his family ties in early 2018, with reports noting he advocates a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict -- unlike his grandfather.
Hunter and his wife, meanwhile, pleaded not guilty to the charges against them on Thursday, and Hunter has declared the prosecution to be politically motivated. But with a lengthy list of personal spending totaling up to $250,000, Hunter has struggled to explain the charges.
On Thursday, he was asked about spending by his wife, Margaret, and appeared to distance himself from her actions, saying it was her that handled the campaign finances. Rep. Duncan Hunter speaks exclusively with 'The Story with Martha MacCallum' after being accused of using campaign funds for personal expenses.
"She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did that'll be looked at too, I'm sure," Hunter told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. "But I didn't do it. ... I didn't spend any money illegally."
But even with Hunter's legal problems, Campa-Najjar faces a tough climb to victory. He picked up only 17.5 percent in the district’s jungle primary and will need to convince a lot of Hunter voters to switch.
His website advocates for an eventual shift to 'Medicare for all,' a popular rallying cry on the left that may be a tough sell in this district. This week, liberal darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Campa-Najjar her "progressive brother." However, the candidate is not embracing hard-left rhetoric publicly and even criticized his party for ignoring Trump voters on Friday.
