Santa Barbara, California

In May 2017, a pro-Israel mural was displayed at the University of California, Santa Barbara, with the support of a pro-Israel student organization and the local Hillel. Within five days, it was vandalized twice, while an “apartheid” wall featuring false claims and fake quotes remained prominently displayed on campus. The vandalism was blamed on pro-BDS students, who rejected the charge but nonetheless failed to win a single vote for their divestment resolution during a student government meeting the following week. "I have never felt so unsafe and unwelcome on campus than I do during the BDS campaign," one Jewish student said. Months later, in March, Santa Barbara's SJP posted images on Facebook of Palestinian women, including terrorist hijacker Leila Khaled, holding knives, AK-47s, and pistols, prompting concern among members of the Jewish community.
