UC Berkeley not showing the love

Our friends at BlueStar PR have let Heebonics know about some signage defacing going on on campus at Berkeley. Man, this stuff just gets more pathetic every time. Have a look.

Here's what the PR guys are saying about what happened:

This poster is currently on display at prominent bus stop locations around UC Berkeley. It is unfortunate that a design featuring an Israeli-Arab Muslim soccer player praising coexistence should be considered threatening by anti-Israel extremists.

Israel haters apparently think that defacing a poster featuring an Arab athlete advocating coexistence earns them points among liberal college students. We seriously doubt it. What do you think?

I think someone is spending too much money on black markers and not enough time educating themselves about the conflict in the Middle East and peace-building initiatives. Don't they have libraries at Berkeley?
