Somehow I have always imagined California looking a bit differently from this picture:
A resolution calling for the University of California at Davis to divest from “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories, violating both international humanitarian law and international human rights” passed on Thursday evening by a vote of 8-2-2. The resolution, sponsored by campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine, was presented before the student senate and specifically targeted companies Caterpillar Inc., G4S PLC, Veolia Environment and Raytheon.Now the picture looks more believable, doesn't it? From this festival of "righteousness", the next step, the one to the festival of hate, was practically inevitable:
Students at a UC Davis-affiliated Jewish fraternity house awoke Saturday morning to find two large swastikas spray painted onto their building.Way to go, UC Davis.
Nathaniel Bernhard, vice president of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, said the vandalism took place between 3 and 9 a.m. Saturday. He condemned the action, saying the hate crime threatened to rekindle race tensions at UC Davis. The fraternity house is located off-campus.
P.S. If it is a consolation, UC Davis Chancellor, Linda P.B. Katehi, issued a statement on the subject.
