  • April 6, 2016 – Jewish UC Davis Student (Mikaela) “As a tour guide on campus, I have seen the concerns that prospective Jewish students and their families have had in regard to increases in anti-Israel activity and anti-Semitic incidents at UC Davis and other UC campuses…If things do not improve soon, I foresee that the UC schools risk having a rapid decrease in Jewish students over the next few years.” Read more
  • April 6, 2016 – Jewish UC Davis Student (Mikaela) “I have been involved with the pro-Israel movement on campus for over two years, and what I and many of my peers have experienced because of our views on Israel has been nothing short of discrimination. Particularly in my capacity as a senator, both members of the senate and senate candidates have refused to work with me because of my views on Israel.” Read more
  • March 15, 2016 – UC Davis Jewish Student (Mandy) “I don’t feel comfortable wearing a Jewish star anymore and depending on certain classes, if I am wearing a symbol of being Jewish I’ll hide it. Anything from assumptions made about you to questions about your opinions on Israel, to being accused of being a Zionist.” Read More
  • October 13, 2015 – UC DAVIS STUDENT (Matthew) note: following cars etched with swastikas and “Expletive Jews” –  “It’s just shocking for me as a Jew to see such hatefulness right outside my doorstep.”  [My roomates car tire was slashed]…”It jeopardized her life. She was on the freeway and her car in danger, and everyone in the car in danger.” Read more
  • September 2015 – Former UC Davis Jewish Student (Yael) “I have seen discussions of [boycotts against Israel] turn nasty — from describing Jews as ‘privileged’ and ‘rich,’ to calling Jews ‘baby killers’ and told to wipe the blood off their boots. It’s terrible. Jews on campus face this intolerance the most when in conjunction with discussions about Israel, which often crosses the line from debate into hate speech.” Read more
  • June 17, 2015 – UC DAVIS JEWISH STUDENT AND AEPi MEMBER (Samuel)“…once BDS hits campus, … . [the] campus climate and the general student atmosphere during BDS Senate meetings were both uncomfortable and disturbing.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Julia)“Campus climate has definitely shifted as of lately. The resolution is inherently divisive and is causing many students to feel marginalized on campus.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Julia)“The divestment resolution has instigated many acts of intolerance on campus against the Jewish community” Read more
  • Feb 2015, SDSU Student (Anthony) (article about UC Davis)“It’s an absurd reality that many Jewish college students have to question: is my college safe for me?” Read more
  • Feb 2015, SDSU Student (Anthony) (article about UC Davis)“The divestment campaign against university involvement with Israel has proven to divide college campuses and distance students away from valuable dialogue about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is this divisive nature that has pushed a narrative that refuses to acknowledge the complicated history and nature of the conflict to deliberately demonize Israel, and those who call it home.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, SDSU Student (Anthony) (article about UC Davis)“While it’s inaccurate to say that all divestment supporters on college campuses are anti-Semitic, it’s socially irresponsible to deny that the divestment campaign fosters an environment where anti-Semitism and hate are easier to occur.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, UC Davis Student (Nadine)- “To me, the campus resolution to divest from Israel is no more than a mere extension of the same kind of hatred and condescension that I have experienced for much of my life. It brings back many of the same feelings for me that I had when I was younger, and makes me feel that I am once again in a position where others want me to apologize and feel wrong or ashamed for my beliefs and what I stand for. The invariable end result of the passing of this resolution will be the isolation of a very select group of students on campus, which is absolutely abhorrent. It will only create a larger divide among members of the student body who have conflicting viewpoints on this contentious issue and may lead to more intense altercations on campus. This would be due to the highly offensive, aggressive, and misleading rhetoric often used by pro-divestment groups to get their points across, including associating Israel’s actions with genocide and ethnic cleansing. The ASUCD support for this resolution promotes the idea that the majority of the student body also supports the beliefs of pro-divestment groups, further empowering their arguments and spreading their twisted logic to the UC Davis community as the “correct” or “majority” opinion. Consequently, I no longer feel as though UC Davis is a completely safe environment for Jewish students or a place where I can feel free to express my support for Israel.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, UC Davis Student (Kristin)- “The BDS movement has no place for public consensus from a student panel that is inherently created to represent all student interests. All it does is pit two ethnic student groups against each other in a hateful and divisive way. The student senate’s decision to pass a resolution to divest from Israel places Jewish students in a separate category, isolating and pushing them into a defensive position.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Jonathan)- “BDS will not stop until the United States and Israel have no relationship, until every Jewish student hides away in fear.” Read more
  • Feb 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Jonathan)- “BDS is the start of a movement that is greater than we can comprehend. We can sit in our homes and hope that everything will be just fine, as it has been in my lifetime, but the trend in the world right now is that people are no longer afraid to openly speak out against Jews. Anti-Semitic behavior is becoming normal. From the standpoint of these students, they are rewarded for their behavior, not restrained. Do you think they will stop?” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Nathaniel) -describing swastikas at the AEPi house following passage of a BDS resolution at UC Davis “From that [BDS] bill, there have been Facebook posts that have been unbelievably derogatory toward Jews” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Nathaniel) – “I don’t think that it’s a coincidence that this happened right after divestment. I’m also not making any assumptions or blaming anyone in particular, but I feel like there were a lot of anti-semitism feelings after divestment.” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Nathaniel) – “Jewish people still can’t feel safe on their own campuses and in their own houses. Anti-Semitism still exists today. It’s not a fairy tale” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Nicole) – “I never thought this would happen here. I personally feel like I’ve been targeted, as well. The swastika is internationally known as a Nazi symbol to kill the Jews, so I do feel targeted by this” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish Federation of Sacramento President (Barry) – “There’s been any number of incidents, including at Davis and elsewhere, where Jewish students are simply approached on campus and sort of yelled at and screamed at” Read more
  • Jan 2015, Jewish UC Davis Student (Joshua)- “It’s 2015 and were still fighting swastikas on Jewish people’s houses.” Read more

    (Description note – An oped in the student paper claimed, “In an op-ed piece published last week, Matan Shelomi accused Davis Stands with Ferguson (DSF) of being used by Students for Justice in Palestine to “Blackwash,” or appropriate, Black struggles in support of the Palestinian cause. With such a direct attack on Black agency and Black resistance we feel compelled to respond. …We will not allow ourselves to be used as a tool for the defense of a racist, settler colonial state. The anti-colonial struggle of Palestinians is, in fact, deeply connected to the racist and settler colonial systems present in the United States — the systems which we are fighting to dismantle right here, from Ferguson to Davis.”)

    (Description note, “Jack Mizes, president of Jewish Voices for Peace (JVP) at UC Davis, a club dedicated to fighting racism and also the Israeli military occupation of Palestinian territories, sees the fact that none of the victims were Jewish as being inconclusive of the suspect’s beliefs and true intentions. “We, JVP at Davis, released a statement that said that because none of the students were Jewish, we can’t conclude that this is a conscious attack by someone who truly believes in anti-Semitism,” Mizes said. “But that’s not to delineate from the fact that that’s not anti-Semitism. When you put a swastika on someone’s car, that’s still anti-Semitism. It’s still racism. And it’s still really messed up.”)

    (Description note, “(JNi.media) Police are searching for individuals who carved anti-religious hate messages and large swastika on cars in a parking lot outside an apartment complex on the University of California Davis campus last Saturday. CBS interviewed Matthew Davidson, who snapped a picture of a large swastika keyed into the hood of 11 cars, along with the message “[Expletive] Jews.” “It’s just shocking for me as a Jew to see such hatefulness right outside my doorstep,” Davidson said. His roommate’s tire was slashed, which she only discovered after getting onto the freeway. “It jeopardized her life,” he told CBS. “She was on the freeway and her car in danger, and everyone in the car in danger.”)

    October 12, 2015: UC Davis News – Chancellor provides update on hate crime
    (Description note, “Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi today (Oct. 12) issued the following statement: Dear UC Davis Community: I wanted to provide you with an update about the hate crime that occurred over the weekend. Two of the 11 cars damaged had been scratched with anti-Semitic graffiti and language. I absolutely condemn anti-Semitism in any display. We must abide by our Principles of Community, which define our commitment to fight anti-Semitism and other forms of discrimination. We must promote tolerance and respect. We must not let incidents like this deter us from nurturing an environment that welcomes people of all backgrounds and values. As of today, this appears to be a random crime. The UC Davis Police Department has determined that none of the damaged cars belongs to students who identify as Jewish. In the meantime, the police are continuing their investigation and following up on current leads. This is an ongoing investigation, and we will release more information as it becomes available. Chief of Police Matthew Carmichael and I will continue to update you as we learn more about this terrible incident on our campus. Sincerely, Linda P.B. Katehi”)

    October 11, 2015: Breitbart – ANTI-RELIGIOUS SLURS CARVED INTO CARS AT UC DAVIS

    September 24, 2015: The Aggie – Your Opinion Desk
    (Description note, “Divestment is another issue which has been strongly associated with campus movements. At UC Davis, Student Resolution 17 (SR17), which called for the University of California to divest its holdings in companies associated with the the Israeli occupation of Palestine, was passed after a similar resolution, SR9, was deemed unconstitutional. The debate that intervened during those proceedings was characterized by protests, walk-outs and sit- ins. Multiple instances of anti-semitic vandalism, that may or may not have been a result of the controversy, added to tension on campus. The divestment movement at UC Davis shows us that we need to remain respectful when our opinions differ. SR9 was ruled unconstitutional because ASUCD’s judicial branch found that the resolution did not explicitly address its potential effect on student welfare. When The California Aggie ran an op-ed criticizing pro-divestment ASUCD senator Azka Fayyaz, a sit-in was held by some of her supporters in the newspaper’s offices. Often, and as were the cases of SR9 and the Aggie’s op-ed, the trouble will be found in the language.”)

    April 2, 2015: J Weekly – New faculty group at U.C. Davis steps up for Israel (Description note, “DFI plans to work with U.C. Davis administrators to foster a more supportive environment for pro-Israel students, and to monitor anti-Israel talks, speakers and events that are either sponsored or supported by academic departments, an action DFI members say violate state law and U.C. policies. DFI plans to monitor the behavior of U.C. Davis faculty members who, as stated in the group’s mission statement, “use the classroom as a vehicle to intimidate students, to organize political actions or to impose political views on students.”)

    March 20, 2015: LA Times – UC extends discounted tuition to military veterans (Description note, “Also on Thursday, a coalition of Jewish and education groups urged the regents to take additional steps in response to several recent campus incidents they say were anti-Semitic.

This is outrageous and dangerous. And it’s time for the college community, as well as the broader Jewish community, to speak out more forcefully against it.”)

Clearly we are not there yet in the US, but to think that the continuum of hate that we have seen the beginning of in places like UC Davis or other locales does not end at Durban is to mislead ourselves.”)

    February 10, 2015: The California Aggie – Guest Opinion: Response to ASUCD Senator Azka Fayyaz’s Letter to the Community (Description note, an alumni guest letter responding to Azka Fayaz’ comment on Hamas as satirical, “Ms. Fayyaz’s letter to the community does not address her statement that “Israel will fall,” which appears to call for the destruction or annihilation of the world’s only predominantly Jewish state. However, she “explains” that her apparent endorsement of Hamas was merely “satirical.” Even if that is true, however, it merely compounds the offense… Hamas is a terrorist group whose charter calls for the murder of all Jews everywhere. It also expressly calls for Israel to be “eliminated”… Endorsing Hamas in jest, as Ms. Fayyaz now claims to have done, trivializes the group’s extreme anti-Semitic hate and incomprehensible brutality.”)

    February 10, 2015: The California Aggie – Editorial Board reflects on actions of ASUCD senator Azka Fayyaz (Description note – The Editorial Board of the The California Aggie, which published an open letter by Azka Fayyaz, expressed frustration with SJP member Fayazz, “We believe Fayyaz has failed to uphold the ASUCD Principles of Community with her public statement and Facebook posts. In addition to these online statements, Fayyaz has spoken publicly in a manner that we feel does not align with the Principles of Community. At the Jan. 29 meeting after senate conducted a roll call vote to see where senators stood on the issue of passing the resolution, Fayyaz made an extreme statement about the definition of Zionism. ‘You can’t have coexistence with Zionists. Their purpose of Zionism is discrimination, elimination and ethnic cleansing of a group of people. So if you want to talk about coexistence, I’m not talking with you…'”)

More specifically, these communities have violently stalked me on Facebook and reported the contents of my profile to the Zionist lobby groups which they have been paid to represent.”)

Because of that leadership, in the last few months alone, our brothers have been the targets of anti-Semitic attacks at a dozen universities including Oregon, the Claremont Colleges, Arizona, Calgary, Loyola, Ohio, Ohio State, Vanderbilt, Temple, Emory, SUNY-Oneonta, Tufts and, now, in Davis…Anti-Semitism is on the rise on college campuses across the world, and the “BDS movement” — the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction Israel — is the chief face of campus anti-Semitism.”)

    February 2, 2015: Jewish Journal – Divestment at UC Davis (Description note, “Should I become accustomed to being stared and glared at as I walk around campus because I was a Senator and continue to be a student who openly stands against the BDS proposal for divestment and sanctions?…BDS is the start of a movement that is greater than we can comprehend. We can sit in our homes and hope that everything will be just fine, as it has been in my lifetime, but the trend in the world right now is that people are no longer afraid to openly speak out against Jews. Anti-Semitic behavior is becoming normal. From the standpoint of these students, they are rewarded for their behavior, not restrained. Do you think they will stop?”)

    February 2, 2015: The Daily Californian – UC Davis student senate urges UC Board of Regents to divest (Description note, “There’s definitely some anti-Semitism in the movement to divest,” Quinn [ASUC External Affairs Vice President Caitlin Quinn] said.” Also in article is upcoming UCSA vote – “The UC Student Association, or UCSA, will vote on a similar resolution Feb. 8 at the UCLA campus. The UCSA previously voted to postpone the divestment resolution in November, then moved the resolution from the agenda in January to this weekend’s meeting. In order for the resolution to pass, the UCSA would have to approve the measure with a two-thirds majority vote.”)

    January 31, 2015: UNIVERSITY STATEMENT, CHANCELLOR KATEHI – Statement of Chancellor Katehi on ASUCD Senate resolution (Description note, “Last evening the ASUCD Senate passed a resolution urging the UC Board of Regents to divest from four corporations that, according to the resolution, “aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine.” This, however, does not reflect the position of UC Davis or the University of California system. The investment policy for the University of California system, including UC Davis, is set by the UC Board of Regents. The Board and Office of the President issued a statement regarding student resolutions that urge the Board to divest from companies doing business with Israel. The statement reiterates the Board’s position that this type of call to action will not be entertained. We recognize that this is a sensitive topic for many on our campus, one that is very personal and emotional. It is for this reason that we must exercise sensitivity, restraint and respect in relation to the issue. Prior to the debate last night, those in attendance were reminded of our Principles of Community. We affirmed the right to freedom of expression, but also affirmed our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency toward all…”)

No matter what religious, political or personal beliefs we hold, as members of a university community we have an obligation to treat each other with respect and dignity, even when we disagree. Nothing rivals a swastika as a more potent or offensive symbol of hatred and violence toward our Jewish community members, but this odious symbol is an affront to us all. As campus leaders, we are saddened and outraged that this occurred in our community…”)

    February 27, 2012: ISRAEL EVENT DISRUPTED BY SJP – Description note: SJP and others staged a planned disruption of a Jewish student event consisting of two Israelis –a Jewish man and a Druze woman. In a video of the preparation, you can see dozens of MSA, SJP and MeChA students at UC Davis preparing to disrupt the event. Before heading off en masse to disrupt the event, the leader of the protesters said, “Events like these are not welcome on our campus anymore,” and his statement was met with a round of applause. During the presentation, a walkout occurred along with verbal assaults shouted at the speaker. From ADL’s description of the disruption, “One stu­dent defi­antly stood up and shouted obscen­i­ties at the speak­ers, claim­ing that Israel has “turned the land of Pales­tine into a land of pros­ti­tutes and rapists and child moles­ters,” and harassed the speaker, ask­ing him, “How many women have you raped? How many chil­dren have you raped? You are a child moles­ter.” Dur­ing his out­burst, the student defended his actions as a free speech right yet noted, “My only pur­pose today is that this event is shut down,” an obvi­ously ironic use of free speech rights.”
