Rasha Anayah, a teaching assistant at John Hopkin’s University’s Thor Research Group wrote a tweet threatening to fail pro-Israel students, The Forward reported on Thursday.

“Ethical dilemma: if you have to grade a zionist student exam, do you still give them all their points even though they support your ethnic cleansing?” she wrote. “Like idk [I don’t know].”

Anayah took a survey of opinions and 77% of the respondents replied, “Free Palestine! Fail them.” She responded: “like I agree but also too many of you want me to get fired.”

She also wrote other tweets insulting Israelis and white people: “y’all allah looking out for me. The majority of undergrads in chem here are white and i was blessed enough to be paired w a black woman to mentor who has good race analysis. Didn’t get pinned with an israeli or some ***** white boy to have to share my knowledge with.alhamdulilah [Thank G-d].”

Anayah is also the treasurer of Students for Justice in Palestine at Johns Hopkins and was previously a board member for “Bears for Palestine” at the University of California, Berkeley, according to Canary Mission.

Johns Hopkins University is investigating the incident, The Forward said.

  1. Can this possibly be true?? She’s failing students because of their religious persuasion???? Or race??? Try the reverse: An American or Jewish instructor failing a black. Even if his average were a 42, he’d have to be passed and credited to prevent rioting. If her “dilemma” is give them “all their points even though they support….”, that implies that they have succeeded academically. No surprise among Jewish students.
    I ask YWN: Can the Administration of John Hopkin’s University’s Thor Research Group be notified of this extremely racist behavior so that she will be dismissed, or at least warned?? Please?? Can the Forward do that?
    This is too obnoxious for words! She is going public about it!! She’ll pass all the blacks and those will be the medical researchers of tomorrow, r”l!

  2. And these are the accounts which do NOT get suspended, folks.
    Well, time for *each and every student* of hers to sign their names
    “Je suis un juif sioniste”!!!!!!
