U.K. institutions have tightened down on antisemitic protests, government policies and publications amid significant public outcry.
Public support for pro-Palestinian/Hamas causes has waned as protests have turned violent and terrorists have begun targeting unarmed container ships in the Red Sea.
The BBC is noted for its progressive hosts who regularly condemn Israel’s retaliatory strikes against Hamas and portray the small democratic state as an oppressor, an occupier and a proponent of apartheid.
However, one senior BBC employee found themselves in hot water after reports of multiple antisemitic Facebook posts were revealed. Public outcry forced the news outlet to take action.
The employee, Dawn Queva, served as a senior scheduling coordinator at the BBC. According to the New York Post, Queva penned three “troubling antisemitic conspiracy theories on social media” in which she referred to the Jewish people as “Nazi apartheid parasites” who funded a “holohoax.”
Queva’s posts echoed radical “woke” rhetoric. She claimed the Jewish people had no claim to their homeland and referred to Hebrews as “just a bunch of thieving squatters.”
Queva denied the Holocaust, referred to the Jews as “parasites” and questioned the legitimacy of the U.N.’s decision to allow Israel to reestablish itself as a nation in 1948. Queva wrote that “the Zionist genocidal land squatting so called Jew’ irrespective of the fact that The UKKK and Amerikkka gave away land they had no god given right to a people who have no god given right to.”
Notably, Queva did not question the U.N.’s decision to recognize the sovereignty of multiple Arab states in the region in the 1940s and 50s.
Unwisely, Queva attached “white people,” referring to them a “virus.” Her ill-advised writings sparked public cries for her dismissal from the BBC.
On Sunday, BBC administrators announced that Queva is no longer employed at the news outlet. “The individual concerned is no longer employed by the BBC,” a BBC spokesperson said in a statement.
Her dismissal was confirmed by the Telegraph on Monday.
The defiant Queva, who previously worked for UKTV and Disney, responded to criticism of her posts by writing, “Only those who live a lie hate the truth!” The post was followed up by, “Come at me by all means, my shoulders are broad.”https://twitter.com/Michael_Wgd/status/1754556833560178951
