Esam Omeish is running for Virginia’s 35th District House of Delegate office — Virginia Primary election scheduled June 9. See Omeish’s web site for upcoming campaign activities. Esam Omeish is the former president of the Muslim American Society that the Investigative Project on Terrorism has revealed to be founded by the Extremist Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood has as its goals that “Violent Extemism is our way,” and seeks to create a global extremist caliphate and “mastering the world with Islam.” Barack Obama has defined as our enemies organizations that who seek to create a “caliphate.”
On April 11, 2009 at his Oakton, Virginia campaign “meet the voters” rally, Esam Omeish told us that Sharia is “wonderful” for the rest of the world. Sharia is a supremacist institution that denies humanity’s universally shared human rights of equality and liberty for all people. Sharia promotes inequality and segregation among people of different genders and religions, and seeks to deny human freedoms of speech, press, and conscience. Sharia has been used as the basis for repressing and killing girls, women, homosexuals, and religious minorities.
Esam Omeish also told us on April 11, 2009 that he stands by his position on his 2004 statement that “[t]he influence of Muslim Brotherhood ideas has been instrumental in defining” his worldviews on “tolerance… and human rights.” This is the same Muslim Brotherhood that also calls for “Violent Extemism is our way,” and who seeks to create the extremist caliphate; Barack Obama has stated that our enemies seek to create a caliphate.
In 2007, it was revealed that Esam Omeish had called for “the Violent Extemism way” at a previous rally. The online video of this led to his resignation from an appointment in a Virginia immigration commission.
We believe that an effective Democratic candidate for the 35th district would have values based on the inalienable human rights of equality and liberty for all, not a supremacist worldview.
