A teacher at a Texas pre-school has been fired after she was found to have encouraged her social media followers to “kill some Jews.” According to a spokesman for The Children’s Courtyard confirmed that Nancy Salem, a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin, “no longer works for our company.” In a report by The Algemeiner newspaper today, Salem is reportedly one of two dozen anti-Israel activists who recently protested at the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA). Her activities were exposed by a covert campus watchdog group called Canary Mission.
The spokesman for the pre-school said in a statement, “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.”
Salem’s hate-filled social media posts spanned several years. Once they became public, comments have flooded the Facebook page of The Children’s Courtyard’s Facebook that have called on parents to yank their kids from the school.
Salem is an activist with the UTA chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. She is also a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement — used her now-disabled Twitter account to post such remarks as: “How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough…HAHAHAHA.”
