A Muslim member of a Northern Virginia school board has raised eyebrows for saying that the U.S.A.’s victory over the Nazis in WWII was ‘unfortunate” and “evil.” Perhaps she feels it would have been better if Hitler’s Nazi regime and the Japanese had won the war?
Muslim Abrar Omeish, a radical leftist who voters foolishly elected to the Fairfax County School Board in 2019, said the Battle of Iwo Jima “set a record for really what human evil is capable of” and “unfortunately happened.”

Per the Washington Free Beacon:
Omeish in her Thursday comments made reference to the Day of Remembrance, a Feb. 19 day of observance for the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II that occurs on the same calendar day as the first U.S. landings on the island of Iwo Jima in 1945.
“Just a few days ago was Japanese Day of Remembrance,” Omeish said. “Something for us to certainly reflect on … the days when, you know, Iwo Jima unfortunately happened and set a record for really what, I hate to say, human evil is capable of.”
She did not explain why in her comments at the meeting she said Iwo Jima was evil and “unfortunately happened.”
Unsurprisingly, this Muslim is also a racist hater of Jews. In the past she has called Israel an “apartheid” state that “kills Palestinians.” She has also said she hates Asians.
It should be remembered that nearly every country that was run by strict Islamists during WWII sided with Hitler.
Naturally, when asked to clarify her comments, this radical leftist called any one who would question her a “racist.”
“There is no reason to warp what was said and reading more into it merely reflects biases forced in by the listener,” Omeish said. She said Iwo Jima “happens to fall on the same day” as the 1942 executive order issued by then-president Franklin D. Roosevelt to incarcerate Japanese Americans and noted that the order remained in effect “even after Iwo Jima on February 19, 1945, three years later.” She did not explain why in her comments at the meeting she said Iwo Jima was evil and “unfortunately happened.”
