Teen Girl Accused Of Bullying For Criticizing Israel

Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore, Jayar Jackson, and Becca Frucht | (The Young Turks Video) | – –

“A teen in New Jersey has been reprimanded by her high school for bullying. She tweeted criticisms of the Israeli government, and the school has taken action saying that it could be perceived as anti-Semitic towards Jewish students. Here’s the problem: She’s also Jewish. Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show), Jayar Jackson, and Becca Frucht hosts of The Young Turks discuss…

“A New Jersey high school student found herself in a social media storm on Wednesday after she live-tweeted and apparently secretly recorded a trip to her principal’s office.

She said administrators warned her that her comments about Israel and a fellow student on Twitter might have violated a state law against bullying.

The student, Bethany Koval, a 16-year-old Israeli Jew, said she had been reprimanded by administrators at Fair Lawn High School in Bergen County for a tweet that contained a string of expletives directed at Israel and expressed happiness that a pro-Israel classmate had unfollowed her Twitter account.”

  1. This story reminds me of the child who ate his pop tart into a rough facsimile of a pistol at school, and was suspended for it.

  2. However, criticism of any of the 1.6 billion Muslims in the world would be rewarded.
    Not much publicity about the poisoning of acres of Gazan land, such as it is, by the IDF for “security reasons” this week.

  3. While at State Dept., Hillary declared that any criticism of Israel is also anti-Semitic. She proudly reported this in a public letter to a major Jewish/Zionist campaign contributor. So she is selling out free speech to please a foreign government and a moneybags. But we could expect no less from Big Money Hillary.

  4. Whatever else the girl said, the comment “against Israel” could – by definition – not have been bullying. Any attempt to invoke the bullying law against those comments were a misuse of state laws and a violation of her freedom of speech.

    Her religion is completely irrelevant to the issue. Anyone has the right to strongly criticize Israel.
