Itongadol.- Only one week ago, swastikas were spray-painted outside Alpha Epsilon Pi house, a nationally Jewish fraternity, at Emory University in Atlanta.
Unknown vandals drew swastikas at the entrance to a Yale University freshman residence hall late on Sunday night, according to The Yale Daily News.
It was the second anti-Semitic incident at the university in a little more than a month. Previously, several swastikas were drawn on a whiteboard in another freshman dorm.
And last week, only hours after Yom Kippur, swastikas and other offensive graffiti were found outside Alpha Epsilon Pi house — a nationally Jewish fraternity – at Emory University in Atlanta.
Sunday\’s night\’s graffiti was found on a walkway outside Durfee Hall, which houses first year students in Morse College and is part of Yale\’s Old Campus. Yale College Dean Jonathan Holloway said that attempts had been made to remove the swastikas "but some faint impressions remain."
According to the report, several students later drew hearts and other images in colored chalk on the walkway.
“I condemn this shameful defacement, perpetrated anonymously under cover of night,” Holloway wrote in a campus-wide email. “There is no room for hate in this house.”
"The swastika … is particularly offensive and disrespectful toward the Jewish members of our community, but, in truth, it insults us all. The use of the swastika violates our values of respect, thoughtfulness, generosity, and goodwill. I will not stand idly by when this or other symbols of hate are used on this campus."
