Islamist Is Elected To Virginia School Board
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. November 8, 2019
A state that gave our nation several early presidents, principle author of the Declaration of Independence, “Father of the Constitution,” and Commanding General of the Continental Army now has given us the daughter of one of America’s most prominent Islamist leaders.
This should sound clanging bells across the country for all freedom loving Americans. A position on a local or state school board is a favorite target of Muslims because they can have control over the public classrooms and ultimately the future of America. The pattern of Islam is to use the courts, schools, art museums, political offices, and other major institutions including outreach to churches to infiltrate, gradually introduce Sharia, and then finally impose Sharia on an entire nation.
Abrar’s father, Esam Omeish, is a former president of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which was founded as the overt arm of the covert international terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. Omeish had to resign from a state immigration board in 2007 because he supported violent jihad. He later admitted to being a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood and has for many years sat on the board at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center which supports MB causes.
Abrar Omeish, while a student at Yale in 2014, led the effort by the Muslim Student Association to silence ex-Muslim and Islamist critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She supports the MB linked International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT) that advocates Islamic supremacy. The managing editor of IIIT’s social science journal, Shareefa al-Khatib, led the introduction of Islam and the Arabic language into Fairfax County Public Schools in the 1990s for the purpose of proselytizing.
Another Muslim woman was also elected to a school board position in Virginia. Lisa, Zargarpur was elected to the Prince William County School Board.
Muslim goal for American education
In a 1989 video clip that recently went viral, an Islamic activist talks candidly about the goal of Muslim education is to convert our Constitutional Republic to a Caliphate – an Islamic form of government.
“We do not want to melt into American society and disappear. We want to go into American society with Islamic ideals and revamp their thinking. We want to revamp them. We want to turn them into Muslim individuals.”
Although that recording was made in 1989, the future envisioned in Alkhateeb’s speech is already evident. Muslims now are very open about their intent. During an IIIT podcast, Omeish made it clear that her Islamic religion will guide her decisions as a school board member.
Muslim funding of American education
Since the mid-1970s, billions of Arab petro-dollars have flowed into American education to change public opinion toward Islam and to influence U.S. foreign policy, specifically toward Israel. The project began with colleges in the mid-1970s and then added K-12 in the 1990s with Saudi Arabia providing the initial funding.
Almost all of the colleges which write K-12 textbooks on the Middle East receive massive funding from Arab nations. The U.S. Department of Education currently is investigating secret foreign cash received by universities.
At the top of the list are Georgetown University and Texas A&M with bankrolls of hundreds of millions of dollars from Qatar, a Middle-Eastern nation with suspected ties to international terrorist organizations. Georgetown was one of those universities that received Arab money while contracted with the federal government under Title VI to write curricula for K-12 textbooks on the Middle East.
Qatar has given more than $1 billion and Saudia Arabia nearly $614 million to American universities since 2011.
Textbook authors are influenced by Middle East money to paint Islam in glowing terms while ignoring the facts. Nothing is mentioned about the atrocities of Sharia or what jihad really is. Nor jihadists who cage non-Muslims and set them on fire. Nor the near slave-status of Muslim women or female genital mutilation. Nor about Muslim keeping of slaves. Nor chopping off the heads of non-believers and hands of those who disobey Sharia. Or the stoning of a woman if a man rapes her.
U.S. textbooks are revised through incorrect facts, falsification of facts, deliberate omission of critical information, and innuendo to plant seeds of bias and predisposition. Here are some of the more famousbiased phrases found in K-12 textbooks.
Jesus was a “Palestinian Jew” who grew up in Galilee amidst “militant Zealots.”
While Islamic Arab warriors “rarely imposed their religion by force,” Christian monks “by contrast,” were busy converting “peoples of Central and Eastern Europe.”
Israel is to blame for terrorist attacks by Palestinians because they were “angered over the loss of their territory.”
When the Jewish state of Israel was born in 1948, the nation and its neighbors “went to war.”
It was because of the “loss of their territory to Israel” that “militant Palestinians responded with a policy of terrorist attacks.”
“The Quran permitted fair, defensive warfare as jihad, or ‘struggle in the way of God'” and this was how Muhammad and his successors expanded their territory.
With overt anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, and pro-Islam biases in American education, it’s clear why American students are deeply hostile toward Christians, Israel, and America.
How can we stop Muslim agenda to set up caliphate in America?
There is no more important elected position in America than the school board because they have the authority over the education of our children and, therefore, the future of America. Conservatives must step up and run for those positions if we are to regain any control of public education and the direction of our nation.
