Anti-Jewish sentiment is growing so quickly on a major California university campus it caused one student to gleefully proclaim that “Hamas & Sharia law” have taken over.
It all began Thursday when members of a Jewish fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, walked out of a University of California-Davis student Senate vote on a bill that called for divestment in “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories, violating both international humanitarian law and international human rights.”
The bill ultimately passed.
After the vote, student leader, Azka Fayyaz, captioned a photo of protesting students waving a Palestinian flags with “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis.”
Then on Saturday members of AEPI awoke to find swastikas painted in front of the fraternity house and reported it to police.
The vandalism appeared to have taken place overnight Friday, according to CBS 13.
“This kind of behavior is not only repugnant and a gross violation of the values our university holds dear, it is unacceptable and must not be tolerated on our campus or anywhere else,” UC-Davis officials said in a statement.
Fraternity members told CBS 13 they weren’t surprised by the vandalism.
“This week is sort of a bad week to be Jewish on campus,” said Nathaniel Bernhart, the group’s vice president.
“We’re pretty sure this is directly related,” fraternity President-elect Joshua Wortsman told the station.
If “Hamas & Sharia law” is the kind of “higher education” students are receiving in the United States, it’s a scary thought for the future of America.
