Graffiti reading “for the many not the jew” was found at the California State University, Fullerton, campus on Tuesday.
The message was written in black marker on an electric utility box outside the university’s College Park building, according to photos shared online. It was denounced as antisemitic by social media users as well as the Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism, an Israel-based monitoring organization.
CSUF President Fram Virjee condemned the vandalism in a statement, saying it “was not only offensive, hurtful, and abhorrent, it was an affront to everything that we, as an inclusive, welcoming, and diverse campus community, stand for.”
“ stance is clear: we will not tolerate these kinds of hateful, criminal acts in or around our campus community,” he added.
The slogan appears to invoke the motto of the British Labour Party, “For the many, not the few.” Both the party and its far-left leader Jeremy Corbyn, have been accused of fostering antisemitism by leaders of the UK Jewish community.
