Muslim, anti-Semitic graduation speaker urges students to remember their “jihad”

FALLS CHURCH, VA- There was a time when high school commencement speeches were uplifting, urging graduates to go into the world and be the change they want to see.

Apparently, that is no longer the case, at least in Falls Church, Virginia, where a commencement speaker went on an anti-American diatribe, infuriating some parents in attendance.

Fox News reported the speaker, a Muslim member of the Fairfax County School Board gave an incendiary address in which she warned the graduates—primarily minorities and immigrants—that they were about to step out into a capitalist world filled with racism, white supremacy and “extreme versions of individualism.”


Abrar Omeish, clearly a radical delivered the address at Justice High School in Falls Church on June 7.

“Our world is overwhelmed with need. We struggle with human greed, racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, white supremacy, growing wealth gaps, disease, climate crisis, extreme poverty amid luxury and waste right next door.

And the list goes on,” she said as she pointed out the land the school is located on is “land stolen” from the Manahoac people, a Native American Tribe.

“Let us acknowledge the stolen land of the Manahoac people,” she asked.

Not surprisingly, the radical neo-Marxist Muslim campaigned for Bernie Sanders, according to the president of the student number who introduced her. Even more disturbing, her father, Esam Omeish was a “leader and board member of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center.

If that sounds familiar it’s the namesake of the mosque attended by two of the 9/11 hijackers, radical imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, and Nidal Hasan, the 2009 Fort Hood shooter. Sounds the perfect speaker for a bunch of impressionable high school students.

Worse yet? At one point, speaking in Arabic, Omeish told the students to remember their “jihad.”

“You understand that neutral is another word for complicit,” she said.

Breitbart News noted that in May, Omeish wrote a tweet in which she stated on the Muslim feast day:

“Hurts my hear to celebrate while Israel kills Palestinians & desecrates the Holy Land right now. Apartheid & colonization were wrong yesterday, and will be today, here and there.”

At the graduation address, Omeish told graduates they would be “walking into a world that will be uncomfortable when you seek to cause good trouble.”

“And that may seek to intimidate you or make you think the truth is controversial,” she said while adding that while “every part of your being may scream in rage at the ways others have wronged you,” still “let compassion for your fellow human beings, not anger or rage—and believe me this is hard to do—fuel you.”

She continued:

“No matter how many haters emerge, I’m sure you’ve encountered them yourselves, and believe me they’re a sign you’re unsettling the status quo towards justice. Just consider them your cheerleaders of another breed.”

The class president, who clearly has issues of her own and led the Pledge of Allegiance, called it “the nation’s anthem” and stated the United States was “one nation under Allah.”

She also called Omeish a “role model,” and made the [false] assertion that Omeish’s “civil rights were violated by the police due to her appearance” two years prior. “She was attacked and discriminated against,” the class president said.

However the Daily Wire disputes that version of events:

“That entire incident is on video, which shows that an officer pulled over her car after watching her run a red light from a distance, from which her appearance was not visible. She repeatedly refused to show her license, then refused to get out of the car, leading to her arrest.”


Omeish’s comments didn’t go over well with some of the parents in attendance, including parent Gary Aiken.

“I think it’s important for your viewers to know that Abrar Omeish’s comments here are incendiary comments, are not the first example of divisive and anti-Semitic rhetoric,” he told Fox & Friends First last week.

He said she had also posted “vile anti-Semitic tweets on her social accounts,” which he said are linked to her official “nonpartisan Fairfax County school board page.”

“That desecrates the Holy Land and kills Palestinians. And this caused huge outrage among over 250,000 Jewish Americans here in Northern Virginia and it sparked outrage across all political lines and there were calls for her to apologize. She offered no apology. She doubled down on it,” Aiken noted.

After receiving pushback about her comments, the district made the lame excuse that Omeish’s comments were her First Amendment right and that her “personal views…do not reflect the views” of the school board or the district.

Aiken called that excuse absurd, noting that comments made by school board members during “school functions” such as commencement ceremonies are not representing the school board or the school itself.

Aiken also called it absurd that nobody either proofread or pre-approved the incendiary speech.

A former Wall Street Journal columnist, Asra Nomani also weighed in on Omeish’s speech on Fox & Friends, referring to it as “depressing.”

“It was indicative of this radicalization that is happening within school boards and school districts and schools across the country, from principals to teachers to political operatives like Omeish.”

Nomani, a Muslim herself, said she knows Omeish very well.

“She gave that speech, but the script was written years ago,” she said.

Perhaps Omeish is practicing to be the next Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib, two other anti-Semitic lunatics.

The following contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

WASHINGTON, DC- If the most far-left, anti-American, neo-Marxist radical had put together a dream team of fellow radicals to populate a presidential administration, they would have had to go a long way to beat the group of unhinged lunatics Joe Biden has assembled.

For someone who promised to “bring the country together” and who was advertised as a “moderate,” Biden has out-Marxed Marx.

Take Kristen Clarke, who Biden nominated to head the civil rights division at the Department of Justice. She is a far-left lunatic who has a history of black nationalism and has sympathies for racism, as well as anti-Semitism.

According to the North State Journal, Clarke once argued that the human brain was structured in such a way that black people are “superior” to white people, and that “human mental processes” in the brain have chemicals which give one race (blacks) “superior physical and mental abilities” and “spiritual abilities.”

Clarke claims that those comments were a sort of “parody” in which she was attempting to mock a book called “The Bell Curve.” “What I was seeking to do was to hold up a mirror,” she said. “Put one racist theory alongside another.” Clarke wrote this while writing for the Harvard University newspaper. 

Well, that story didn’t appear to abide with the Harvard Crimson, the campus paper. The editors of that paper called on Clarke to retract her claims in an editorial entitled, “Clarke Should Retract Statements.” That editorial argued that there was “little evidence of irony in the letter and that Clarke’s subsequent statements about the piece hardly amount to a disavowal of its contents,” the Crimson wrote.

Did you say anti-Semite? Clarke, while a student at Harvard University invited a man named Anthony Martin, a professor at Wellesley College at the time to speak at Harvard.

Clarke’s assigned textbook was entitled “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” which sought to blame Jews for the slave trade. Clarke also wrote “The Jewish Onslaught” published by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a famed anti-Semite.

At the same time, Clarke was writing about black supremacy, in which she called Martin an “intelligent, well-versed black intellectual who bases his information on indisputable fact.”

Clarke now claims that she “denounces anti-Semitism wherever and whenever it shows up.”

That was after 2019 apparently, when she signed a letter supporting Farrakhan supporter and Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory, who had “asserted that Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people—and even, according to a close secondhand source, claiming that Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade,” as reported in Tablet.

Hey, it was all the way back two years ago when she said that.

If those were her only issues, that would probably be enough. But just like Ron Popeil, the famous “Vega-Matic” huckster, “Wait! There’s more!”

According to The Washington Free Beacon, Clarke was listed on the masthead of a scholarly journal with her name prominently displayed along with an anti-Semitic writer.

That is bad enough, however Clarke had claimed under oath that she had never collaborated with Amiri Baraka, a Marxist and anti-Semitic black nationalist who had accused Israel in 2002 of having advanced knowledge of the 9/11 attacks. In fact, Clarke and Baraka appeared together on the masthead of the journal Souls at least eight times over two years.

Speaking to Israel’s alleged knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, Baraka wrote:

“Who knew the World Trade center was gonna get bombed/Who told 4000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers/To stay home that day/Thy did Sharon stay away?/Who? Who? Who?” he wrote in a “poem” called “Who Blew Up America?”

In a 2004 NPR interview, Baraka said he had no regrets in writing the above, and also called then-Newark mayor Cory Booker “backward.” He also complained that “merely getting rid of the white folks in Newark” wasn’t sufficient to address the goals of black nationalists.

During Clarke’s April 14 Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, Clarke told senators she had never worked with Baraka. Sen Mike Lee (R-Utah) questioned Clarke about Baraka and an article he had written comparing police officers and judges to the Ku Klux Klan.

The article in fact is called “Mumia, Lynch Law and Imperialism.” “Mumia” is well known to police officers, having been convicted of murder in the shooting of a Philadelphia police officer in 1981.

He is a martyr to far-left neo-Marxists who have made the claim that he is innocent and have been pushing for his release, despite the fact he was witnessed executing the officer. He is serving a life sentence without possibility of parole.

During testimony, Lee asked Clarke whether she served “on the editorial staff of a journal with Amiri Baraka,” to which she answered “no.”

The Free Beacon reviewed eight editions of the journal, “Souls, A Critical Journal of Black Politics, Culture, and Society” on Taylor & Francis, which publishes scholarly journals. The Beacon said the editions were published quarterly in 1999 and 2000. Each edition showed Clarke on the masthead as an assistant editor, with Baraka listed as contributing editor.

Moreover, Clarke was also caught promoting that same essay:

“President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division circulated an essay from self-proclaimed Marxist poet Amiri Baraka defending cop killer Mumia-Abu-Jamal and referring to police officers as members of the Ku Klux Klan, according to an email from her days at Columbia University.

Kristen Clarke forwarded the Baraka essay in an email on June 25, 1999, to her mentor, the late historian Manning Marable.

She suggested that the essay, entitled “Mumia, ‘Lynch Law’ & Imperialism” be placed in a magazine Marable edited and used for a panel on the death penalty.

‘Here is a piece for the magazine & the panel 3 Race and The Death Penalty,’ Clarke wrote to Barable.

How much of a racist, anti-Semite was Clarke’s mentor, Baraka? Pretty bad, as you’ll see:

“I got the extermination blues, jew-boys. I got the Hitler syndrome figured…So come for the rent, jewboys, or come ask me for a book, or sit in the courts handing down your judgments still I got something for you, gonna give it to my brothers, so they’ll know what your whole story is, then one day, jewboys, we all, even my wig wearing mother gonna put it on you all at once.”

Baraka later explained in “Confessions of a former Anti-Semite” that these lines meant “Jews had stolen black secrets and then said that Hitler disliked Jews because he could smell the contact with black on them.”

He continued:

“Atheist Jews double-crossers stole our secrets crossed the white desert to spill them. The fag’s death they gave us on a cross…they give us to worship a dead jew and not ourselves.”

“The empty jew betrays us, as he does hanging stupidly from a cross, in an oven, the pantomime of our torture, so clearly, cinemascope the Jews do it…the little arty bastards talking arithmetic they sucked from the arab’s head. Suck your pricks. The best is yet to come. On how we beat you and killed you.”

Oh, he also hated white people:

“We are all beautiful (except white people, they are full of , and made of shit),” he wrote. “Come up, black dada/nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape/their fathers. Cut the mothers throats,” he wrote.

These are the type of people someone who is supposed to head the “civil rights” division of the Department of Justice views as a mentor.

Imagine if the script were flipped, the races were changed, and the nominee was put up by a Republican. CNN, MSNBC and the alphabet networks would be covering it 24/7.

In the case of Biden, it’s just another radical nominee put up by an out-of-touch demented old man.
