JNS.org – Two large swastikas were found spray-painted on the Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) Jewish fraternity house at University of California (UC), Davis during Shabbat.

“Jewish people still can’t feel safe on their own campuses and in their own houses,” Nathaniel Bernhard, vice president of the UC Davis AEPi chapter, told the Sacramento Bee. “Antisemitism still exists today. It’s not a fairy tale.”

Bernhard said the swastikas were spray-painted on the building sometime between 3-9 a.m. on Saturday.

Barry Broad, board president of the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region, called the swastikas “especially heinous” given the recent commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27.

“Unfortunately, the lessons that history has taught us about the culture of hate have not been heeded by everyone,” Broad said in a statement.

UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi said, “Nothing rivals a swastika as a more potent or offensive symbol of hatred and violence toward our Jewish community members.”

    Anti-Semitism has a long history at UC and, particularly, at UC Davis. The Supreme Court, in the Bakke Decision (Bakke was attempting to get into UC Davis) and Dinesh D’Souza in “Illiberal Education: The Politics of Race and Sex on Campus” discusses how Jews and Asians were shorted by the UC Regents, denied admission in favor of less qualified African Americans and Hispanics, while those considered white enough were not denied. My own story is, in part, here:

    Once the article came out and the faculty realized they had been lied to by the Chancellor – he had been having everyone told that the cop, Jones, at UCD in 1992 was not the same Jones as had been at UCSB in 1972, the faculty voted to reinstate me:

    However, the Chancellor and dean refused to abide by the faculty’s vote. When accused of anti-Semitism during the Chancellor’s No Confidence vote, he was rude to the Jewish community and the rabbis involved. The Academic Senate page on the matter was recently taken down so the former Chancellor involved, Vandehoef, could lie about it in his book, which just came out.

    The problem is that so many of our so-called and self-appointed leaders refuse to denounce and take action against anti-Semitism when it comes from within our own government – and UC is considered a branch of government in California. I have now lost 22 years of my career due to one anti-Semitic cop and the “need” of the administration to cover for him. What career? I was the molecular biologist on the first successful AIDS vaccine – the one in cats:

    Just imagine what I could have done if not for these scum.

    Of course it was defaced. Jews will be kicked out of the school soon.

  • OK, my AEPi brothers, time to get the heck out of the U. S.!

    No, it doesn’t make you quitters, or weak, or cowards, or “letting anti-Semitism win,” or whatever else “mainstream” American Jewish Organizations want you to believe.
