Police are investigating after posters with swastikas were found on the Arizona State University Campus in Tempe. Students at Arizona State University say they’re shocked to hear that swastika flyers were placed around their campus.
“Unsafe, I guess, just because it brings back old memories from history and stuff I guess uncomfortable,” said one ASU student.
“The flyer uses the hate symbol of the swastika but it also used the star of David but it was not meant to be in a good way,” said Carlos Galindo-Elvira with the Anti-Defamation League of Arizona. “It can be concerning for the safety and security of Jewish students,” said Galindo-Elvira. “We have seen arise across the United States on anti-Semitic incidents.” “In Arizona, they are mostly vandalism and harassment, however, we do not want to see an incident that involves violence, so that is why we have been reaching out to law-enforcement and Jewish student organizations.”
