Arlington, TX, United States (4E) – A Texas preschool teacher lost her job over a tweet she posted in 2013 regarding killing Jewish people.
The tweet has since been deleted but as per screen shots and multiple reports, the full text from the teacher, identified as Nancy Salem, said, “Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews! <3 #IMissYouAlready.” It was not stated in the reports who Lulu is.
That was not the first time Salem talked about killing Jews. In another tweet, which is also now deleted, Salem asked about how many Jews died in the Holocaust and she replied to her question by saying “not enough.”
The tweets came into light after an activist group called Canary Mission published a report about alleged anti-Semitism among the people associated with a group called Students for Justice in Palestine attending the University of Texas at Arlington. After her tweets became part of the headlines, many people targeted the employer of Salem now, which is a preschool and day care center at Children’s Courtyard in Arlington, Texas.
A spokeswoman for the center, Lydia Cisaruk, said Salem is no longer part of their company. Cisaruk added, “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 did not yet release any statement. The firing of the woman comes amid the increased threats against the Jewish community. A history Jewish cemetery in St. Louis recently had almost 200 of their gravestones damaged and vandalized.
