Anti-Israel activists at the University of California, Davis heckled Jewish students and shouted “Allahhu Akbar” at them during a vote last week on a resolution endorsing a boycott of the Jewish state, according to video of the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The commotion erupted late Thursday evening as pro-Israel students attempted to counter a student government resolution to divest from Israel as part of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Activists waving Palestinian flags shouted at the Jewish and pro-Israel students as they left the meeting room ahead of an eight to two vote in favor of the divestment resolution, which is part of a larger movement by anti-Israel groups to attack Israel and pro-Israel students on campus.

“Allahhu Akhbar!” a large group of activists shouted in unison as the pro-Israel students filed out of U.C. Davis’ meeting room, according to video provided by a member of Aggies for Israel, a pro-Israel student group at Davis.

Following the vote, which was championed by the pro-Hamas group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), unknown vandals spray-painted swastikas on a fraternity house belonging to the Jewish AEPi organization.

Additionally, Azka Fayyaz, a member of the U.C. Davis student senate, posted on her Facebook page a triumphant message following the vote: “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis.” 

Fayyaz followed this with another post stating: “If a movement is not controversial, if no one is mad, its [sic] not strong enough & it’s not worth the fight. Israel will fall insha’Allah.”

The term “Allahu Akbar” means “Allah is the greatest.” It is an ordinary declaration of Muslim faith, but in the context of political demonstrations it is also a declaration of loyalty to radical Islam, and is frequently shouted at anti-Israel and anti-American protests. By using the chant in response to a call of “Takbir,” the Muslim students demonstrated–to each other and to the outside world–that the true audience for their vote against Israel is not UC Davis campus but the Muslim world.

When asked about the controversial comments made by the student senator, a U.C. Davis spokesman said, “statements by individuals do not reflect a position of the university or the university community as a whole … U.C. Davis is built on a foundation of tolerance and inclusion, and we have an obligation to treat each other with respect and dignity even when we disagree.”

He said Davis police are investigating the vandalism incident at AEPi.“U.C. Davis Student Affairs and U.C. Davis police have met with the fraternity to offer support and advice,” the spokesman said. “It is being investigated as a hate crime.
