Abrar Omeish, VA School Board Member, Disrespects All Of Us

At a very young age, Abrar Omeish has an impressive list of accomplishments. In 2019, at the age of 24, she was elected to the Fairfax County School Board as a member at large while a Georgetown Law School student. Omeish has also managed to disrespect and insult the families of those affected by September 11, 2001, the Marine heroes of Iwo Jima in World War II, and the law enforcement officers who keep us safe daily. With youth in her favor, Miss Omeish has the ability to do great damage to our Republic.

I am not going to tell you too much about her background because I don’t want to prejudice you against her for that. I want to prejudice you against her for her words and actions.

Abrar Omeish is the America-born daughter of Dr. Esam Omesh, a general surgeon born in Libya in 1967. Dr. Omeish immigrated to the United States at age 15. From the Daily Wire, September 10, 2021:

A school board member whose father was on the board of the mosque attended by 9/11 hijackers and hired as imam a top Al-Qaeda operative on Wednesday forcefully opposed a resolution honoring the victims of the attacks.
Abrar Omeish is on the school board of Fairfax County Public Schools, near the Pentagon. She lives with her father Esam, who was a director of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, and hired as its imam Anwar al-Awlaki, who President Barack Obama later ordered killed by drone strike. The mosque was attended by two of the 9/11 hijackers as well as the shooter in the 2009 attack on Fort Hood, Texas.

Yup, her Dad hired Anwar al-Awlaki. Tres charmant, n’est-ce pas? But, as I said, I don’t want you to despise her because of her background. Her actions are enough for us to find her “wanting”.

In May of 2021, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington withdrew an accolade for Miss Omeish after she made anti-Semitic remarks:

On May 13, two identical posts appeared on Omeish’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, which she uses for personal and school board business, celebrating the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The posts included: “Hurts my heart to celebrate while Israel kills Palestinians & desecrates the Holy Land right now. Apartheid & colonization were wrong yesterday and will be today, here and there.”
The JCRC in a statement called Omeish’s post “a one-sided, inaccurate, and hateful statement that smeared Israel, defamed Israelis, and disenfranchised the thousands of Jewish families in her district. The language Ms. Omeish used in this Tweet is deeply offensive and inflammatory to all who support Israel.”

For the 2021 Remembrance of September 11, Abrar Omeish has some helpful suggestions so as not to offend Muslims, as compiled by Townhall:

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of September 11th. The world mourned the loss of life and destruction of that day. It was also a pivotal moment in the history of Muslims in the U.S. and across the world. As educators, you have the responsibility of meeting the needs of all your students as they experience this anniversary. Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an Islamic civil rights organization, usually receives a spike in complaints from students and families on anniversaries of 9/11. Some complaints involve peer-to-peer bullying, while others involve anti-Muslim content in lesson plans. In light of this, Muslim American students need your support so that they can experience a safe and welcoming classroom during this time. Students who are not of the Muslim faith also need support to learn how to interact with their Muslim peers.

It instructs:
Do not call on Muslim students to comment on the attacks
Do not create educational activities that stimulate the roles of perpetrators, targets, or bystanders.
Avoid the following language:
“Islamic terrorists,” “jihadists,” or “radical Islamic terrorists.”
This language validates the claims of the 9/11 attackers by associating their acts of mass murder with Islam and Muslims.
“Terrorism” for everything.
There is much disagreement about what terrorism means and it’s often used in a biased manner
Instead, use exact terms: white supremacist, surveillance, acts of mass violence
Use “the endless wars”.
?? The term “endless wars” captures the Iraq, Afghanistan, and other ongoing physical wars, as well as the never-ending harm, inflicted upon innocent Black and brown people.
It reinforces the fact that the wars abroad and at home have no clear target, and only harm Black and Brown communities.
For more information about language, check out ReThink Media’s guide.
Avoid microaggressions:
“When the attacks happened, did your mosque or community make a statement?”
“Aren’t you mad at the terrorists for what they did?”
“Do you all have to go for jihad? ”
Do wear cultural items from Muslim countries as a show of support (e.g., scarf)</blockquote.

In other words, “some people did something” and I am wearing a scarf to show my solidarity. Not a chance. CAIR and Abrar Omeish sued a police officer for arresting her after she refused to show him her driver’s license after 16 requests. She was stopped for running a red light:

On Tuesday, January 12, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold an online news conference to announce the filing of a lawsuit in federal court in Alexandria, Va., on behalf of Abrar Omeish, a Muslim woman and Fairfax County elected official who was pepper-sprayed by a Fairfax County police officer after he pulled her over for turning right at a red light.
After she was taken into custody, Abrar was forced to remove her hijab (Islamic head scarf) and photographed in violation of federal law. She is leading a coalition, called “Fight for Five,” to demand local and state reforms.

You can read the full case text here. The officer won Omeish lost. He asked for her license 16 separate times before he pepper sprayed her. Good thing it was all caught on his body cam.
All of these instances are utterly egregious. Here is one more for you. I am the daughter of a Marine standing a Heavenly post and met Iwo Jima Hero and Medal of Honor Recipient Woody Williams about a half dozen times before he passed in June, 2022. I was fuming when Abrar Omeish called Iwo Jima evil. Yes, she did:

“Just a few days ago was Japanese Day of Remembrance,” Omeish said during the meeting. “Something for us to certainly reflect on … the days when, you know, Iwo Jima unfortunately happened and set a record for really what, I hate to say, human evil is capable of.”

Following the controversy over her remarks, Omeish released a statement to Fox News.
“I would like to set the record straight,” she said. “Before the battle at Iwo Jima in Feb 1945, Japan knew it could not defend the island, but its Government still demanded its military forces to fight to the death. Even though Lieutenant General Kuribayashi knew there was no possibility of winning the battle, Prime Minster Hideki Tojo sent him on a suicidal mission to inflict as many casualties as possible on allied forces and to never surrender. The unnecessary spilling of blood was not right.”
“At the same time, our own Government also knew in Feb 1945 that the overwhelming number of 120,000 incarcerated Japanese Americans posed no threat to American security,” she added. “By that time, the Japanese American 442 Infantry Regiment was already well on its way to becoming the most decorated American military unit in WWII. The refusal of our own Government to release the Japanese prisoners was and should continue to be condemned. Our government’s actions were also not right. During the school board meeting, I mentioned both points to nuance our discussion regarding these events.”

I will let Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, U.S. Marines veteran answer this one:

Omeish is young and she should know better but her heart is too filled with hate. She does know and she hates this country and everything we stand for. Remember her name. She is a fellow traveler with Ilhan Omar and maybe even more dangerous.

Abrar Omeish

Semper fi, beloveds.

    More proof that islam is NOT compatible with civilized society

  • GWB says:

    disenfranchised the thousands of Jewish families in her district
    How did it do that? How did her comments take away their right to vote in local elections?
    You want to stop over-the-top rhetoric? Then stop using it.

    Avoid the following language:
    “Islamic terrorists,” “jihadists,” or “radical Islamic terrorists.”

    Ummm, that’s exactly what they were. And most of Islam did not condemn them for making that claim.

    Instead, use exact terms: white supremacist, surveillance, acts of mass violence
    Except what they did had nothing to do with “white supremacy”. And acts of mass violence is a catch-all that includes terrorism – which is what the attacks on 9/11 were.

    arresting her after she refused to show him her driver’s license
    Ummm, I think you lost something in your post here, Toni. Everything goes all bold from here, as if it was part of the blockquote before, and that sentence is obviously missing its beginning.

    Honestly, Toni, I’m trying to figure out why you’re dragging her into the news again. Everything cited here happened a year ago or more. Is this merely a preemptive strike on any re-election campaign she will run?

    • “Disenfranchised” – agreed, this is hyperbole. Although if changed to note that it attempts to disenfranchise the right of ISRAELIS to life without would-be genocidalists given free rein in their society, it would be correct. In any case, don’t expect a leftist Jewish organization to be all that bright and make proper use of the language – they have been “burned” time after time for endorsing Global Judenfrei advocating politicians.

      Second and third points – also agreed.

      Fourth point – some of us have a saying. “WordPress Delenda Est,” or “WPDE” for short. Probably not Toni’s fault, there.

      Fifth point – you don’t stop stomping on a snake until it quits moving. For a bit after that, in fact.

    • Toni Williams says:

      I am sorry GWB, I checked all the links and the WP code and I cannot find where the error is. But, it has changed and moved a lot of what I wrote. The Iwo Jima comments were two days ago. I want everything she has done in one place. Not that this mish mash is helpful.

  • SCOTTtheBADGER says:

    You will note that she doesn’t acknowledge that it was the Democrats that locked up the Japanese-Americans.

    • NTSOG says:

      Nor does she mention that US men of Japanese extraction fought in Europe with honour later in the war, but not in the Pacific Theatre. I guess they were proud Americans, not prepared to play the victim game so beloved of the modern progressive Left.

    • GWB says:

      Nor that a lot of the people placed in those camps were not American citizens. And therefore they were literally enemies.

      • “Citizens of an enemy nation” is better. Not all of them were our enemies.

        There were three “classes” of Japanese in the camps.

        There were Japanese citizens – who were interned on a “better safe than sorry” basis. Although that only happened in the continental US, under the theory that sabotage of war production was likely – Japanese in the islands were not rounded up, as regular counter-intelligence was believed to be sufficient to prevent them from causing any damage.

        There were minor children (born in the US, and therefore citizens) of the aforementioned Japanese citizens. What other solution than interning them with their parents was reasonable?

        Third, there were adult US citizens. Who were NOT rounded up – they voluntarily accompanied their family members to the camps.

        In any case, there is rarely a mention of Allied Power citizens (civilians) that were interned in the Axis countries – under far worse conditions than the Japanese ever encountered in the camps.
