A teacher at a Texas preschool was fired after posting on Twitter inflammatory messages against Jews.
According to The Algemeiner newspaper, Nancy Salem, a teacher at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington, posted several vicious tweets including the joke, “How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough.”
In another message intended for a friend, Salem wrote, “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.”

Canary Mission, a watchdog group that exposes anti-American and anti-Jewish rhetoric on the internet, brought the tweets to the attention of the public. Salem’s pre-school launched an investigation after receiving complaints about the messages from concerned parents. It was later discovered that Salem was associated with the University of Texas, Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. She was among 24 people in the group who were found to be posting anti-Jew and anti-Israel sentiments.
Prior to Salem’s firing, The Children’s Courtyard released the following statement: Our senior management team is working to address this matter. This in no way reflects the views of The Children’s Courtyard. We strive to provide an inclusive environment for all children, families and staff members. We also expect our employees to uphold standards of personal and professional conduct.
Initial reports indicated that Salem was suspended from The Children’s Courtyard, but the school confirmed Wednesday that Salem “is no longer with the company.”
