Texas Pre-School Teacher Tweets 'Kill Some Jews'
After tweeting out messages such as "kill some Jews," a pre-school teacher in Texas has been suspended from her job at The Children's Courtyard.
As reported by The Algemeiner, Nancy Salem, was identified previously for expressing racist and violent messages online. A member of the University of Texas, Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine and a supporter of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement against Israel, Salem previously tweeted, "How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough ... HAHAHAHA."
Her Twitter account has since been disabled.
CNN commentator and former Congressman Rick Santorum was recently pilloried by fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo in a discussion on the subject of anti-Semitism in the U.S. and its connection to those involved in the anti-Israel movement.
"If you look at the people who are responsible for a lot of this anti-Semitism that we are seeing, I hate to say it, [but] a lot of it is coming from the pro-Palestinian and Muslim community," Santorum said.
Cuomo countered, "I don't know that that is a fact, by the way...you have white, haters who historically target the Jews."
"That's not what's going on on college campuses, Chris," responded Santorum.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
