Palestinian teacher defeats Israel lobby smears

Sheffield Hallam University has dropped its investigation of Shahd Abusalama, an activist and assistant lecturer who was falsely accused by Israel lobby groups of anti-Jewish bigotry.

Sheffield Hallam University has dropped its investigation of Shahd Abusalama, an activist and assistant lecturer who was falsely accused by Israel lobby groups of anti-Jewish bigotry.

 

Abusalama was also offered a more secure contract at the university, which is in the north of England. She has resumed teaching her classes.

 

The university suspended Abusalama from her position on 20 January amid a smear campaign by supporters of Israel. Administrators launched an investigation following a complaint over her social media posts which criticized Israel and its state ideology Zionism.
 

But following a massive support campaign and public outcry, the university reinstated her on 27 January.
 

Abusalama did not initially accept the reinstatement offer, demanding that the investigation be dropped first, as it was prompted by malicious smears.

 

The university still has not yet released details on who – or which groups – filed the complaint against Abusalama.

 

However, on Thursday, Abusalama was told by university administrators that they would not be proceeding with any investigation, and she returned to teaching.
