Israeli Flag Vandalized and Stolen from Kentucky University Jewish Fraternity

Lawrence police are investigating after an Israel flag was cut down from the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at the University of Kansas on Sunday night.

Police told KMBC they responded to the 1100 block of Indiana on Sunday.

“The Israeli Flag had been cut down and ripped up and later found about a block away,” a police spokesperson said in an email. “The fraternity‚Äôs American Flag was still attached to the rope and on the ground near the flagpole.”

Police are forwarding the report to the department’s investigations division, saying the department is “concerned” about the nature of the crime.

They are still investigating the case and are working to find additional evidence.

According to the fraternity’s Web site, it was founded to “provide opportunities for the Jewish college man seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience.”
