A Virginia high school graduation was taken over by Islamic extremists this week, in an effort to Islamize the ceremony. Sharia-compliant students at Justice High School not only injected Islam into the graduation speech, but a Muslim school board member also told the students to “remember their jihad.”
Gateway Pundit (h/t Nita) Fairfax County Muslim school board member Abrar Omeish told the graduating class that they were entering a world filled with “racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, white supremacy,” and told them to “remember their jihad.”
Luke Rosiak via The Daily Wire reported on Abrar Omeish’s connection with the infamous terror-linked Dar al-Hijrah mosque:
The class president then led what she called “the nation’s anthem,” referring to the pledge of allegiance, in which she said the U.S. was “one nation under Allah.” Omeish was out of view of the camera, but a picture from another recent graduation shows her as the only person without her hand over her heart during the pledge.
The president of the student government then introduced Omeish by noting that she was “Virginia co-chair for the Bernie Sanders campaign” and that her father, Esam Omeish, was a “leader and a board member of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center” who “raised his daughter to be an outspoken woman.”
Dar al-Hijrah is a mosque attended by two of the 9/11 hijackers as well as the shooter in the 2009 attack on Fort Hood. Its imam was Anwar al-Awlaki, who President Barack Obama ordered killed by drone strike for plotting terrorism for Al Queda. Omeish noted that her father was in attendance at the graduation.

Imam Shaker Elsayed said, in a video uploaded to the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center’s YouTube channel on April 3, 2020, that Allah sent the coronavirus as a punishment for Jews, homosexuality, and capitalism. In 2017, he endorsed female genital mutilation, saying it prevents women from being “hypersexually active.”
