“I almost had a complete breakdown on this”
A Jewish graduate from the University of Leeds says her essay failed because she didn’t criticize Israel enough.
This mark meant that Danielle Greyman was unable to graduate until the paper was finally noticed, eventually allowing her to take her place on a masters course a year after she was supposed to. .
Greyman is now suing the University of Leeds for negligence, discrimination and victimization.
The Leeds graduate says her essay on Hamas crimes against Palestinians failed because she was not critical enough of Israel.
In his essay, Greyman described Hamas’ use of human shields as “a betrayal of the Palestinian people by their government.”
The moderator annotated this section: “This ignores the fact that the Israeli state is committing acts of violence.”
She also listed eight examples of anti-Semitism taught in Gaza schools.
Next to this column, the host wrote: “So seven teachers constitute a wave of anti-Semitism? This “evidence” is also weakened by the admission that the transmission and acceptance of these “odious ideas” cannot be measured.
After failing the test, Greyman was forced to retake the module and then passed it, but had to wait nearly a year before she could take her place on a masters course at the University of Glasgow.
Greyman also claims that in order to appeal the original grade, she had to withdraw a formal complaint against her teachers.
“It was a massive emotional damage. I almost had a complete breakdown on that,” Greyman told The Jewish Chronicle.
A spokesperson for the University of Leeds said: “The university vigorously denies the charges of antisemitism, although further comment would be inappropriate given that the matter is the subject of legal proceedings.”
