School board member votes against 9/11 tribute

On the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks members of the Fairfax County School Board (Virginia) intended to honor first responders and the victims who died as a result of the terrorist attacks carried out that day.


However, far-Left school board member Abrar Omeish, who has already sparked outrage for anti-Semitic comments and encouraging high schoolers to remember 'jihad', voted against the resolution that called for a moment of silence, saying it was not 'anti-racist' and failed to address 'state-sponsored traumas.'


Omeish lives with her father Esam, who was a director of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, and hired as its imam (prayer leader) Anwar al-Awlaki, who President Barack Obama later ordered killed by drone strike. That same mosque was also attended by two of the 9/11 hijackers as well as the shooter in the 2009 attack on Fort Hood, Texas.


Campaigner Asra Nomani - who is also Muslim - led the condemnation of Omeish.


Omeish, who is the sole Muslim member on the Virginia school board, is no stranger to controversy.

She recently called on graduating high school students to remember 'jihad' at their commencement and warned that they were entering a world of, 'racism, extreme versions of individualism, capitalism, and white supremacy.'


In English, she told them that: 'The world sees the accolade, the diploma, the fruit of all your years yet be reminded of the detail of your struggle.' When she repeated the speech in Arabic, she told students to remember their 'jihad' - a word meaning both 'struggle' and, specifically, holy war waged on behalf of Islam.


Omeish voted against the motion for the 9/11 moment of silence but it was ultimately passed thanks to votes from all other members of the board.

Such a disgraceful and disrespectful woman who lives in a country that she is allowed to say such things without any against her.

How did she get on that board, surely no one at that school or community elected or appointed her. She is the enemy, she blew up the world trade center, she is 9/11 and I find it offensive. Why don't you people?
