An Arlington preschool teacher has been fired for posting anti-Semitic statements on social media.
According to Dallas News, the teacher, Nancy Salem — who is a member of the notoriously anti-Semitic Students for Justice in Palestine — was recently fired from The Children’s Courtyard preschool after a watchdog group revealed that she had been posting disturbing statements online about Jews, including outright calls for violence.
“How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough!” Salem tweeted.
In other tweet, wished her friend “Lulu” a safe trip, apparently back home, writing, “Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews!”
The watchdog group, Canary Mission, said that Salem was not alone in her anti-Semitic online activity.
The group discovered similar posts by 18 other members of the University of Texas at Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. SJP is a nationwide student club known for its promotion of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel propaganda. The group, Canary Mission states, is a “focal point for campus anti-Semitism.”
Following Salem’s firing, Children’s Courtyard issued a statement explaining why they dismissed the preschool teacher:
Providing a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment is of the utmost importance to us. The offensive comments certainly don’t reflect our views. Our employees are expected to uphold certain standards of personal and professional conduct. Our senior leadership thoroughly investigated this matter. This person no longer works for our company.
Canary Mission made the posts of Salem and her 18 colleagues at SJP public, along with those of another 5 current and former students of UTA. In total, Canary Mission found 24 current or former UTA students to have posted anti-Semitic statements.
Though Salem has since deleted her account after being outed by Canary Mission, the group took screenshots. Two of Salem’s posts below via Dallas News:
