A Texas preschool teacher is out of a job after several anti-Semitic online posts, including a tweet encouraging a friend to “kill some Jews,” came to light.

Nancy Salem was fired from The Children’s Courtyard in Arlington after administrators were alerted to her anti-Semitic behavior online, the Dallas Morning News reported.

“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,” she reportedly wrote in 2013.

In another tweet, she quoted a user named @DictatorHitler and wrote: “’@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough’ @PrincessLulllu @thearabgirl HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.”

Ms. Salem was among 24 anti-Israel activists exposed by watchdog group Canary Mission for expressing anti-Semitism on social media, The Algemeiner reported.

The Children’s Courtyard released a statement Wednesday saying Ms. Salem was no longer employed at the school.

“Providing a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment is of the utmost importance to us,” the statement said. “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.”


Correction: An earlier version of this article stated Ms. Salem was a member of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at the University of Texas, Arlington. A university spokeswoman said Ms. Salem was never a student there, and SJP’s president said she was never a member.
