Days before the vote, vandals broke into the locked office of the the vice-president of academic affairs at the university's Student Alliance (UWSA), Jake DeJong, ransacked it, and scrawled a Star of David and the word "Zionist" on a flag bearing the motto "Support our Troops".
Windsor police are treating the incident as a hate crime.
Reports a local newspaper:
'DeJong emphasized that he isn’t “for or against either side” of the BDS referendum. Rather, he stressed that his objective is geared towards student safety. “I’m for student safety and making sure that the (referendum) question that is asked is fair and equitable to both sides so we can get a true view from the student body.”
“I feel violated and I have no idea what to do,” he added....
UWSA President Rob Crawford said his organization doesn’t condone what has occurred in the student centre.
“The entire organization stands behind Jake and we strongly condemn any acts of hate speech, violence, vandalism or intimidation against any student,” said Crawford. “A safe and equitable campus is our top priority.”
The referendum has caused significant controversy on campus with reports of threats of violence and intimidation. Crawford alleged in an open address to students via his president’s blog that one of his executives verbally threatened a student, that the incident was reported to campus police and that students from both sides of the issue have been defacing or tearing down campaign materials.
“When I started as a University of Windsor student, I never saw this kind of thing developing because I always thought that we were a safe and cohesive student body. But this year has just gotten worse and worse with the division,” said DeJong....'See here and here

"Oxford University, which is ranked as one of the top five universities on the planet, has categorically rejected two motions supported by the BDS Movement. A motion that called upon Oxford students to boycott Israeli institutions and products was defeated, 69-10, with 15 abstentions. Another motion calling for students to partake in the BDS movement was similarly defeated. As a result, neither motion will proceed from the Oxford University Student Union to be placed before the National Union of British Students Conference...."How great it is that the BDSers have found that Oxford is living up to its epithet of "the home of lost causes" as the poet Matthew Arnold termed it!
