Palestinian student, 25, tweets ‘I am so proud to be called a terrorist’ sparking anti-Semitism investigation at the University of Exeter

A Palestinian student is being investigated after she allegedly tweeted she was ‘proud to be a terrorist’ amid claims she made anti-Semitic comments online.

The Students’ Guild at the University of Exeter has launched a probe into allegations of anti-Semitism by its vice president for postgraduate students Malaka Shwaikh, 25.

Charity Campaign Against Antisemitism claimed the student wrote provocative tweets and produced an image of one allegedly from her account that said: ‘If terrorism means protecting and defending my land, I am so proud to be called terrorist. What an honour for the Palestinians!’
