Va. School Board Member Tells Graduating Islamic Students to Prepare for ‘Jihad’

'You understand that "neutral" is another word for complicit. And you have made a choice to take a stand...'

A Virginia school board member told graduating high school students that they should prepare their “jihad” and get ready to enter a capitalist world full of racism and white supremacy.

Fairfax County School Board member Abrar Omeish gave the keynote address at the graduation for students at Justice High School in Falls Church this month. 

Omeish was introduced as a former campaign volunteer for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and a “leader and board member of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center,” a mosque attended by two 9/11 hijackers.

“Our world is overwhelmed with need,” she told students, according to Fox News.

“We struggle with human greed, racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, white supremacy, growing wealth gaps, disease, climate crisis, extreme poverty amidst luxury and waste right next door—and the list goes on,” she continued.

At one point, Omeish said in Arabic that students ought to remember their “jihad.” She also claimed the Falls Church school was sitting on land stolen from a Native American tribe.

“You understand that social justice is only political for those that can afford to ignore it,” Omeish said. “You understand that ‘neutral’ is another word for complicit. And you have made a choice to take a stand.”

Oemish’s speech reflected some of the finer points of critical race theory, a social-justice-driven curriculum that teaches students “to hate our country, to hate each other,” according to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who recently pushed a bill banning the state’s public schools from teaching it.

DeSantis also pledged to oppose any local school board member who supports Critical Race Theory, even if that candidate is a Republican.

“We’re not going to support any Republican candidate for school board who supports critical race theory in all 67 counties or who supports mandatory masking of schoolchildren,” he said last week.
