Fired for a Facebook post, doctor seeks justice

Wishah’s Facebook account is private, but she had made all her Palestine-related posts public in order to “make my voice heard,” she told The Electronic Intifada.

At the time of posting, Wishah was a physician with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, a position she had held for two years. During her time there, Wishah enjoyed a wide degree of community respect.

A family member of a patient at Phoenix Children’s who asked to remain anonymous said, “To see everything [Wishah] has done in life, everything she’s done for the community beyond her cause alone … that’s exactly what we need in a physician.”

Yet unlike many others who were able to post and then go on with their lives, Wishah found herself swiftly targeted by a Twitter account devoted to smearing and harassing outspoken Palestinians and their allies.
