A Kuwaiti student doing an internship at the cultural department of the French Embassy in New York was dismissed after saying outrageously anti-Semitic comments, French weekly L’Express reported.

The Internet group Inglorious Basterds that identifies and combats anti-Semitism online found the words of Amira, a young Kuwaiti doing an internship in New York, offensive.

EU Official Assaults Woman, Goes On Anti-Semitic Rant
"You're [the Jews] in your place anywhere in the world — that's why you're dirt, rats and are discriminated against wherever you're," the intern of the French Embassy's cultural department wrote on her Facebook page.

When the Inglorious Basterds confronted the young Kuwaiti she started arguing back, trying to further prove her anti-Semitic point of view.

"First of all, you species of rats, I'm not an immigrant from France. I'm from Kuwait and my country can buy you and your parents, and put you all in the ovens," Amira told the Inglorious Basterds, as cited by L'Express.

The Inglorious Basterds promptly contacted the authorities of the French Embassy in New York and told them about the young intern and her hate comments online.

The Embassy started an investigation of the incident and soon the anti-Semitic Kuwaiti intern was dismissed from the French Embassy.

"This intern will be immediately removed from the cultural service," said Gerard Araud, the French Ambassador to the United States, on his Twitter account.
