A screenshot of Halawa’s since-deleted tweet was shared by the account Honest Reporting who claim they promote “fairness and accuracy in media coverage of Israel.” The account shared the screenshots with the caption “Halawa directly influences and creates news content watched by many millions around the world. In what world can someone like this work for a professional news outlet?” A BBC spokesperson has since shared with Daily Mail Online:

“These tweets predate the individual’s employment with the BBC but we are nevertheless taking this very seriously and are investigating.”

In a Twitter post dated July 20, 2014, Halawa had written “Israel is more Nazi than Hitler”.

She also the Israeli Defence Force to “go to hell” along with the hashtag “#PrayForGaza” and “#HitlerWasRight” in the tweet.

Halawa had previously tweeted “ur media is produced by ur zionist government in order 2 produce ignorant people”, “#Zionists can’t get enough of our blood”, and “they’re are crying the holocaust every single moment but they’re practicing it every single moment as well,” shared the Honest Reporting account.

Halawa’s LinkedIn which also seems to have been deactivated currently, described her as a “Script writer and presenter in Birzeit University Radio broadcasting channel.” Her Twitter account has also been deactivated in the wake of the internal investigation.

Ever since the Honest Reporting account brought back Halawa’s old tweets, there’s been hellfire from social media users tweeting and calling out both Halawa and her employer, the BBC, for her past tweets. “How shocking is this. A BBC employee, Tala Halawa working on the West Bank, tweeted ‘Hitler was right’ about the Jews. She then locked her account so none of us could see what other anti-semitic filth she had hidden away.”

“How many more Jew haters do the BBC employ on our money?” asked a user.

Others noted, “Even with the bias and misreporting from @BBCNews, I don’t think anyone can condone using a ‘journalist’ who believes ‘Hitler was right’.” Some even slammed “Here’s woke BBC journalist Tala Halawa saying “Hitler was right”. Fuck me. This is the kind of balanced reporting you get from an unaccountable, systemically woke organisation. My Jewish friends are very worried right now. I’m not paying my licence fee for this sh*te.”

Others took a dig at the media giant tweeting “BBC ‘journalist’ tweets support of Hitler, claiming he was ‘right’. It’s not the first time I’ve heard disgusting suggestions such as these. So many secret racists crawling out of the woodwork. Shame on you.” One user said, “Sack her, she’s disgusting”
