My dad was in the Philippines, his brother fought at Iwo Jima, and my Father-in-Law was assigned to Pear Harbor. I was always proud that they served in the military during WWII—until yesterday. A Muslim member of a Northern Virginia school board said the U.S.A.’s victory over the Nazis in WWII was ‘unfortunate” and “evil.” Perhaps she feels it would have been better if Hitler’s Nazi regime and the Japanese had won the war? Or maybe she wanted Hitler to kill more Jews.
Muslim Abrar Omeish, a radical leftist who voters foolishly elected to the Fairfax County School Board in 2019, said the Battle of Iwo Jima “set a record for really what human evil is capable of” and “unfortunately happened.”

Per the Washington Free Beacon:
Omeish in her Thursday comments made reference to the Day of Remembrance, a Feb. 19 day of observance for the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II that occurs on the same calendar day as the first U.S. landings on the island of Iwo Jima in 1945.
“Just a few days ago was Japanese Day of Remembrance,” Omeish said. “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.”
She did not explain why in her comments at the meeting she said Iwo Jima was evil and “unfortunately happened.”
Unsurprisingly, this Muslim is also a racist hater of Jews. In the past, she has called Israel an “apartheid” state that “kills Palestinians.” She has also said she hates Asians.
While criticizing the WWII fight against the Nazis, she ignores or doesn’t even know that 2,500,000 Muslims fought against Hitler. They fought with the British in northern Africa, they fought with the French resistance, and they even fought with the Russians.
While a few Muslims did support the Axis out of resentment of Western colonialism and hopes that the rise of an alternative power center would aid their quest for independence, they were tiny in their numbers compared to the Muslims who not just supported the Allies (as almost all did if you go back and read the newspapers) but actively fought on their behalf, on the battlefield.
If Abrar Omeish bothered to learn the history of Muslims during the war, perhaps the hater wouldn’t say the victory over the Axis powers was ‘unfortunate” and “evil.” Instead, she would be proud of her fellow Muslims’ contribution to defeating tyranny.
Omeish is nothing but a hater, and her hate is broader than allied forces in the second world war.
Not too surprising is the lies she tells about Israel:
Eid Mubarak! Congrats on 30 days of worship!
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. 🌎💞🌍

She didn’t want to memorialize those who died on 9/11:
On the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, members of the Fairfax County School Board entertained a resolution for a moment of silence. It was intended to honor the first responders who risked their lives to save countless lives, as well as the nearly 3,000 victims who died and those who were injured as a result of the terrorist attacks carried out that day.
But outspoken board member Abrar Omeish, who has previously sparked outrage for alleged anti-Semitic comments and encouraging high schoolers to remember ‘jihad’, voted against the resolution, saying it was not ‘anti-racist’ and failed to address ‘state-sponsored traumas.’
She has admitted that she didn’t believe she could be a “100 percent ally” of the queer community, according to the letter, and she claimed it would be a “challenge” to outwardly endorse or encourage queer students.
These are just some of the hate filled-comments this woman has made. The question is, How the heck was she elected to the school board?
