Speaking Arabic, Muslim School Board Member Urges Jihad at American High School Graduation

Maybe they should rename it Social Justice High School. After all, Justice High School (JHS) in Falls Church, Virginia — known until 2018 as J.E.B. Stuart High School, in honor of a Confederate general — is now a wokester’s dream. While the institution is 50.3 percent Hispanic, 23.4 percent white, 13.6 percent Asian-descent, and 10.1 percent black, its homepage’s “big image shows 11 students, none of them White, holding myriad flags, none of them American,” writes commentator Andrea Widburg.

Yes, because “diversity” obviously means no white people, and multiculturalism means every culture but the West’s.

“One young woman in a hijab holds a Somalia Mogadishu flag,” Widburg continues. “Another holds the flag of Libya. And yet another has the flag of Eritrea in his hands. The school’s mascot is a wolf, and the students are wearing sweatshirts that play on that name: ‘Woke Pack,’ they say.”

Well, it doesn’t get more in-your-face than that, does it? Or maybe it does. Try this on for size:

At JHS’s graduation ceremony on June 7, hijab-clad school board member Abrar Omeish (mis)informed students in English that they were “entering a world filled with “racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, [and] white supremacy,” reports the Daily Wire.

Then Omeish, described as the sole Muslim on the Fairfax County School Board, told the graduates in Arabic, “to remember their ‘jihad’ — a word meaning both ‘struggle’ and, specifically, holy war waged on behalf of Islam,” writes the Daily Mail.

As to this, Widburg emphasizes that we’ve “learned since 9/11 that, no matter how much activist Muslims try to pretend ‘jihad’ merely means a spiritual struggle, in practical fact, they’re pretty much always speaking about actions accompanied by the cry of ‘Allahu akhbar.’”
