Editor-in-chief of prominent science journal fired after sharing social media posts critical of Israel

The editor-in-chief of prominent life science journal “eLife” was fired this week after sharing a satirical article ridiculing Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people in its war against Hamas.

Michael Eisen announced on the social media platform X Monday that eLife had fired him for sharing an article from satire site The Onion and praising its criticism of Israel’s military response to Hamas’ terrorist attack.

Eisen, a geneticist at the University of California who is Jewish, wrote, “I have been informed that I am being replaced as the Editor in Chief of @eLife for retweeting a @TheOnion piece that calls out indifference to the lives of Palestinian civilians.”
