Is this sort of thinking headed for Prince William County? Fox News, Andrea Vacchiano “
A member of the Fairfax County School Board called the Battle of Iwo Jima “unfortunate” and “evil” during a school board meeting on Thursday.
School board member Abrar Omeish was discussing the Day of Remembrance – an observance day for victims of Japanese-American internment during World War II. The day coincides with the U.S. invasion of Iwo Jima, which was Feb. 19, 1945.
“Just a few days ago was Japanese Day of Remembrance,” Omeish said during the meeting. “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.” Virginia Fairfax County School Board member with history of controversy calls Battle of Iwo Jima ‘evil’ | Fox News
