A concerned parent in Texas said her high school daughter, who is Israeli, was targeted by her teacher, who allegedly made antisemitic comments during a lesson.
Talya Hayoun, a freshman at Dickinson High School in Dickinson, Texas, told FOX 26 Houston that she walked into her English class to find the white board had the popular pro-Palestinian mantra, “No justice, no peace. Justice for Palestine.”
Talya, who is Israeli, said the message was not part of a lesson but, believes it was an opportunity for the teacher to share with her students her opinion about the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.
Talya told FOX 26 that her teacher asked her where she was from.
“She said, ‘Oh, you still have family in Israel?’ I said, ‘Yes, of course. All my family is over there. And I’m from there too,'” Talya said.
Talya said the incident made her feel scared and alone since she is the only Israeli in the public high school.
