New York City Mayor Eric Adams said city officials are investigating a "vile show of antisemitism" in which students at a high school in Queens reportedly rioted after learning a teacher attended a pro-Israel rally.
The incident shut down Hillcrest High School in Jamaica Hills, Queens, for two hours on Monday and forced the teacher to hide inside a locked office while the students rampaged down the halls, the New York Post first reported.
"The vile show of antisemitism at Hillcrest High School was motivated by ignorance-fueled hatred, plain and simple, and it will not be tolerated in any of our schools, let alone anywhere else in our city," Adams wrote on X.
"We are better than this," the mayor added.
Students had planned a protest after seeing a Facebook photo of the teacher holding a sign that read, "I stand with Israel," the report said. In the students’ group chat, they spoke about "starting a riot," one student told the outlet.
Shortly after 11 a.m. Monday, hundreds of teens stormed the hallways, where they chanted, waved Palestinian flags and screamed that the teacher "needs to go," according to the report. Parts of the incident were captured on video and posted to TikTok.
The teacher, whose name was not publicly released, has worked in the city’s school system for 23 years and has taught at Hillcrest for the past seven years. She told the Post that she "was shaken to my core" by the calls of violence against her both online and in the hallways outside her classroom.
"No one should ever feel unsafe at school -- students and teachers alike," the teacher said.

‘Vile’ adequately describes most of modern academia, that produces such hatred.
wonder if the Jews in America are paying attention to which side is persecuting them.
It would be interesting to know what percentage of Blacks support Hamas.
Why so hard on your fellow democrats Eric?
torn between two haters, feeling like a fool, hated so by both of them is breaking New York rules.
These are the same vile little bass turds who are going to elect Tater Swuft to the White House in 2024.
Good one. Always like a good song parody.
“wonder if the Jews in America are paying attention to which side is persecuting them.”
Sure, but it doesn’t matter. The majority will still vote for Hamas over republicans.
> “it will not be tolerated” <
That statement falls in the same category as “Have a nice day.” Sounds good, but means nothing.
Leftists sure do like ‘hate crime’ laws. So use them here. Until Adams orders the arrest of those students for a hate crime, he’s just blowing smoke.
Adams: Are you sure the cameras are ready? I’m too busy to waste a lot of time virtue signaling.
“It would be interesting to know what percentage of Blacks support Hamas.”
Let’s put it this way, they don’t like jews.
Yep - he needs to STFU.
He got what he wants and now he is boo-hooing like a little whiney, a$$ b!tch?
Whachyou talkin’ about, Willis. These people are your Democrat base.
She can probably thank her colleagues for engendering this Palestinian consciousness among the students.
This school is 97% minority: 38% Hispanic, 28% Asian (what is an Asian? Korean? Indian? Arab?), 26% black. Pretty hard to pin this one on the “white supremacists”.
Your people, in all ways, dude.
This Adam’s guy is growing on me. In a bizarre sort of schadenfreude kinda way.

“That is not who we are.” and “There is no room in blah blah for blah blah.”
“This is not who we are” is probably the one I hate the most. Yes, that’s exactly who you are.
