Furious parents have spoken out against a school board member who told graduating high school students to remember ‘jihad’ as they ‘entered a world of white supremacy’.
Asra Nomani, a Muslim mom in the district, said the speech by Fairfax County School Board member, Abrar Omeish, was a ‘wake up call.’
‘Political Islam has joined with radical left to hijack our schools,’ she told Fox & Friends on Tuesday.
Nomani, and many other parents, spoke out after the comments by Omeish, the sole Muslim school board member, at the graduation event at Justice High School on June 7.
In English, Omeish told them that: ‘The world sees the accolade, the diploma, the fruit of all your years yet be reminded of the detail of your struggle.’
But when she repeated the speech in Arabic, she told students to remember their ‘jihad’ – a word meaning both ‘struggle’ and, specifically, holy war waged on behalf of Islam.
She also warned they were entering a world of, ‘racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, [and] white supremacy.’
