A Kuwaiti student was expelled from the prestigious Sciences Po University in Paris over anti-Semitic comments made on Facebook.
Amira Jumaa is the first student to be expelled from the institution since it was founded in 1872, according to Haaretz. She reportedly was expelled in December in a decision by the university’s disciplinary committee, which is made up of students and professors, Haaretz reported, citing a report in the French weekly Nouvel Observateur.
The expulsion was not widely publicized, and its announcement at the university was made on a piece of paper posted in a university building, according to the French report.
The Facebook posts came to light in October while Jumaa worked as an intern at the French Consulate in New York as part of a school program. She was fired immediately by the consulate and suspended from the university pending an investigation.
