Abrar Omeish, a member of the Fairfax County School Board, is not a big fan of the idea of holding a moment of silence to honor the victims of the horrific Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel last weekend. To those who live in the district, this is not a surprise. Back in 2021, Omeish was also took a stand against a resolution to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In case you haven’t already figured it out, Omeish is a Muslim. And yet we’re to believe there’s nothing at all sinister within the worldview of this so-called “religion of peace?” Really?
Liberal ideology, which for whatever reason has shined it’s light upon the Islamic religion, has bent over backwards in recent decades to appease those who hold to this particular system of belief, while also going out of its way to attack, persecute, insult, and degrade Christianity. Doesn’t that seem sort of strange? Especially since Jesus teaches to love your enemies and only attempt to proselytize them via sharing the gospel, whereas Islam demands the subjugation of all peoples and forced conversion at the point of a sword?
According to the Daily Wire, “Omeish’s father, Esam Omeish, has served as director of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, which hired as its imam Anwar al-Awlaki, whom President Barack Obama later ordered killed by a 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.”
“It might seem simple,” Omeish went on to say. “Aggressors attacking families in a state, seeking vengeance.” The deplorable woman then slammed the notion of “humanizing” the 1300 Israeli citizens who have been slain in cold blood by the terrorists of Hamas, saying, “We often sympathize with and humanize the side that we relate to, the side that looks more like us which our biases guide us towards.”
Omeish is absolutely disgusting. This is an individual who has been placed in charge of the education of American children, ladies and gentlemen. Omeish is one of the people who helps to pick curriculum and make major decisions about who, what, and how material approved by the federal government is shoved into your kid’s brain. You can’t send a kid to be schooled by Caesar for forty hours plus a week and be shocked when he comes home a Roman.
“Israelis physically look as disparate as any nation’s people, whether they come from Ethiopia, Thailand, various Arab nations, or Europe, not to mention Jews who have lived there for centuries,” the report noted.
“But doing so obscures the root of the violence,” she rambled on, making a reference to the brutal assault by Hamas as an “escalation.” “Centuries of human history teach us that escalations happen when problems are ignored, realities are denied and voices are censored. When one narrative dominates from the world stage all the way to our classrooms.”

Killing innocent people during a music festival, who didn’t have anything to do with your grievances, is far from being acceptable. The fact that Omeish is desperately attempting to justify the extreme acts of violence carried out by Hamas terrorists speaks volumes about her lack of morality and personal integrity. These sick individuals have raped women and taken hostages, along with killing people indiscriminately. It’s never okay to do what these people have done.
She then criticized those who have made calls for peace, going on to say, “We do our students no favors by calling for peace and being unwilling to back what peace requires. As the old civil rights adage goes, no justice, no peace.”

Here’s more from the Daily Wire concerning Omeish’s opposition to a resolution concerning 9/11:
While 9/11 was “jarring” and a “historic turning point in our nation’s history,” she said, the resolution failed to address “state-sponsored traumas” to Muslims. She said she trusted that the Fairfax County Public School’s (FCPS) “equity team will follow up with Dr. Amaarah Decuir and other state advisors whose expertise enlightens us on this topic. I hope we can include these components in our broader anti-racist, anti-bias work.”
Decuir produced a video for the Virginia Department of Education, which is led by Atif Qarni, instructing educators on how to teach about 9/11, which said:
We are not going to reproduce a false assumption of Muslim responsibility for 9/11. We’re just going to begin right there and name that there is no responsibility… We’re also not going to reproduce what’s understood as American exceptionalism… You name what happened and that’s it. There’s no need to further describe it, embellish it, name them, provide details. That’s not relevant… Don’t reproduce a single American narrative, that there’s only one way to understand 9/11.
Back in 2021, Omeish delivered a speech at a graduation ceremony where she told the primarily immigrant class of high school students that the world they were about to enter as adults was filled to the brim with “white supremacy,” before encouraging them to, and I’m not making this up, remember their “jihad” and reject any notions of objectivity and neutrality. While the Pledge of Allegiance is being said during the ceremony, Omeish was the only person there who did not put her hand over her heart.
Hey, you know, if you don’t like it here, there are plenty of Muslim majority countries you an live in, Omeish. Feel free to pull up roots and relocate. We won’t miss you.
