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?
