In­tern: we can put you in the oven

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS - BY NAOMI FIRSHT

A PRES­TI­GIOUS French univer­sity, Sci­ences Po, has ex­pelled a stu­dent for mak­ing an­ti­semitic re­marks on so­cial me­dia.

Kuwaiti Amira Ju­maa, 20, told an Is­raeli in a de­bate on Face­book: “You don’t be­long any­where in this world — that’s why you guys are scum and rats and dis­crim­i­nated against wher­ever you are. Do not blame it on the poor Pales­tini­ans.”

In re­sponse to be­ing ac­cused of rac- ism, Ms Ju­maa wrote: “First of all you dis­persed rat, I am not an im­mi­grant from France. I am from Kuwait so my coun­try can buy you and your par­ents and put you in ovens.”

Ms Ju­maa was also fired from an in­tern­ship at the French em­bassy in New York, which she was com­plet­ing when her re­marks came to light.

The com­ments were pub­lished by a web­site called TheIn­glou­ri­ousBas­terds, which seeks to ex­pose on­line an­tisemitism. Ms Ju­maa is the first stu­dent to be ex­pelled from Sci­ences Po since it was founded in 1872.

‘You guys don’t be­long any­where. You are rats’ — Ju­maa
