Fair Lawn, NJ Resident Holding Rally To Show Support For School Over Anti-Israeli Twitter Incident

FAIR LAWN, N.J. (WUNF) — At Fair Lawn High School on Sunday, January 10th at 2 P.M. a rally will be held to support administrators who were criticized for questioning a student about tweets that were anti-Israeli.

Adi Vaxman, lives in Fair Lawn and said that parents in the district want to show school officials how much they appreciate them.

Bethany Koval, 16-years-old, raised eyebrows after calling a classmate who unfollowed her on Twitter because of her views “that pro-Israel girl from my school” and offering to give the student’s name to a sympathizer, raising fears of bullying.

Schools Superintendent Bruce Watson said on Thursday in a statement that district officials “are obligated by New Jersey’s anti-bullying statute which is one of the strictest in the nation, to investigate” the allegation that Bethany Koval put the other student in danger.

The investigation “is focused solely on the factors we are required to apply by law and not upon any political opinions expressed by any pupils,” he said.

The group will gather at 2 p.m. in the front of the Fair Lawn High School; Vaxman, says that this will be a peaceful rally.

Vaxman also said to UNF News Reporter Kyle Mazza in a statement that “parents feel the school administration should have the ability to do their job without fear of persecution by activist groups or the media; they are acting to protect and ensure the safety of our children and we commend them for that
