The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house on the Stanford University campus was vandalized Saturday night, marked by swastikas, insulting epithets, and personal slurs. A spokesman for the university’s public safety department is currently being investigated as a hate crime.  

Despite protests from students chanting “Stop the hate against the only Jewish state,” the University of California Student Association board, representing 233,000 UC students, passed a resolution Sunday to divest from Israel. The 9-1-6 vote was accompanied by another divestment vote, passed overwhelmingly (11-1-3), to divest from several countries—most notably the United States—for “human rights violations.”
