Anti-Israel activists at the University of California, Davis, heckled Jewish students with shouts of "Allahu Akhbar" at a vote to endorse a boycott of the Jewish state, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

The Free Beacon reports the outburst came last Thursday when pro-Israel students tried to counter a student government resolution to divest from Israel; activists waving Palestinian flags shouted at the pro-Israel students as they walked out ahead of an 8-2 vote in favor of divestment.

A video provided to the newspaper by pro-Israel student group, Aggies for Israel, showed a group shouting "Allahu Akhbar!" in unison as the pro-Israel students walked out.

Story continues below video.


The vote was supported by the pro-Hamas group Students for Justice in Palestine, the Free Beacon reports.

According to the anti-Islamic extremism group, the Clarion Project, student senator Azka Fayyaz declared afterward on her Facebook page "Hamas and Sharia law have taken over UC Davis."adding she later posted: "Israel will fall insha'Allah."

Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United States,.

Last weeks’ vote "does not reflect the position of U.C. Davis or the University of California system," U.C. Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi said in a statement, the Free Beacon reports.

"The investment policy for the University of California system, including U.C. Davis, is set by the U.C. Board of Regents."

She added the Board and Office of the President issued a statement on students resolutions urging divestiture from companies doing business with Israel, noting it "reiterates the Board’s position that this type of call to action will not be entertained," the Free Beacon reports.

After the rancorous student meeting, vandals spray-painted swastikas on the fraternity house of the Jewish AEPi organization, the Free Beacon reports.

A campus spokesman told the Free Beacon Davis, Calif., police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
