The Anti-Defamation League is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction concerning the swastikas that were spray-painted on a University of California, Davis Jewish fraternity house, The Sacramento Bee reported on Tuesday.

The Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) off-campus house was vandalized with two swastikas sometime between early on Saturday, according to Nathaniel Bernhard, vice president of the UC Davis AEPi chapter. Police spokesman Tom Waltz said no suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made as of yet.

UC Davis police are treating the weekend vandalism as a hate crime. UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi called the act “repugnant and a gross violation of the values our university holds dear.”

The vandalism occurred a short time after the Associated Students of UC Davis passed a resolution on Jan. 29 asking the University of California to divest from companies that have ties to Israel. The resolution was approved on an 8-2 vote. Two student senators abstained.

Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400.

    curious how it occurred after that terrible resolution passed. Very curious.

    I wonder if this will be reported as a hate crime in the mainstream media; they usually do a bang up job of trying to call these types of attacks anything except Jew-hatred/hate crimes. Just sayin’.

    People of good conscience and of all religions, say NO to the anti-Semetic atheists and assorted other Jew haters. We are a nation of tolerance and our Declaration Of Independence as well as our Constitution is the cornerstone of religious freedom.

    The persons responsible for the outrage at the minimum need to be expelled from the University system. Knowing how the University of California also is friendly to illegal aliens, if they are not citizens, then deport them to whatever hellhole they came from.
