Fairfax County School Board member, whose father has ties to al-Qaeda, passionately denounced resolution to honor 9/11 victims

Says "Brown people" were the real victims

Abrar Omeish, a member of the Fairfax County Public School Board, opposed a resolution to honor the victims of 9/11 with a moment of silence. She says Muslims and “brown people,” including herself, were victims of 9/11. She states that the resolution uses the language of the enemy and is “counter to the anti-Racist and anti-bias work we all strive to achieve.”

Her father is Esam Omeish, a former director of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. Two of the 9/11 hijackers and Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people at Fort Hood, attended the mosque.

Dar al-Hijrah mosque also once hired al-Qaeda member Anwar al-Awlaki as an Iman. He was killed in 2011 by a US drone strike that was authorized by Barak Obama. He became the first US citizen killed in a drone strike.

Omeish claimed that the School Board’s resolution failed to address the “trauma” that America inflicts on Muslims. She claimed that she was a victim of anti-Muslim racism and traumatized after refusing to show a police officer her driver’s license and then fighting with the cop.

Fairfax County Public Schools are 38% non-Hispanic Whites, 27% Hispanic, 20% Asian, 10% Black, and 5% other. Omeish is also part of a Federal lawsuit against a STEM program in the school district. She says that it is unfair that 70% of the students who test into the program are Asian. She was testing eliminated and spot awarded based on race.

The video below is what Omeish called “one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.”

The US government is currently bringing thousands of unvetted Afghan refugees to Fairfax County.

Fairfax County Executive Bryan J. Hill says newly arrived Afghan refugees have already cost local taxpayers $300k. Much of this stems from transporting 219 refugees to area hospitals. Where in turn, US citizens are being turned away because the hospitals are full of refugees.

The problem is that after the local county pays to transport them to hospitals, as if they were having major medical emergencies, the federal government is supposed to come retrieve them. There is a six hour lag time for the government to come get them, so the hospital rooms are full of Afghans just waiting to be picked up all the time.
