A pre-school teacher in Arlington, Texas who was discovered to have encouraged social media followers to “kill some Jews” has now been fired, a day after The Algemeiner reported on her suspension.

A spokesman for The Children’s Courtyard told The Algemeiner on Wednesday that Nancy Salem — among 24 anti-Israel activists exposed last week by covert campus watchdog group Canary Mission for expressing racist and violent thoughts online — “no longer works for our company.”

“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,” the spokesman said.

Since Salem’s social media posts, spanning several years, were made public, The Children’s Courtyard’s Facebook page has been flooded with comments calling on parents to remove their children from the school.

Salem — an activist associated with the University of Texas, Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine and 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.”
