For the second time in two weeks, Hebrew University was vandalized with swastika graffiti.

A swastika was discovered spray-painted on one of the buildings of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, in the university's Mount Scopus campus in Jerusalem.

Last week, students were shocked to discover a drawing equating the Star of David to the Nazi symbol in a bathroom stall. A similar drawing was also discovered on the campus in February of this year, as well as in November 2014.

“A reality in which two swastikas are discovered in the span of two weeks at a university campus in Israel’s capital is very troubling and dangerous,” said Matan Peleg, CEO of the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu.

“It is no wonder that such a thing could occur when there are professors in Hebrew University who compare IDF soldiers to Nazis and Israeli laws to laws of the Third Reich,” said Peleg referring to a recording published in June of Hebrew University Professor Ofer Cassif equating certain Israeli laws to laws passed in Nazi Germany.

Another Hebrew University professor, Amiram Goldblum, called Jews living in Judea and Samaria "terrorists."

“Unfortunately, many of the anti-Israel incidents that occur on campuses are bolstered by professors. This incident further illustrates the need for an academic code of ethics.”
