    ESPERANCE, NY - State police have arrested a 13 year old for spray painting swastikas on various buildings in a town outside of Albany on New Year's Day. The teen, who acted alone, did not target a specific person or group because of any perception or bias, police said. The teen told police he saw the symbol on video games and selected it because it was easy to draw, police said. The teen was charged Thursday with 10 counts of making graffiti and one count of third-degree burglary, police said.

    The University of Missouri released a police report Wednesday night that was prepared following a complaint that a swastika made of poop was found in a dormitory bathroom at the university in late October. The police report was obtained by the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross. Many questions remain about a swastika scrawled in feces in a bathroom at a residence hall on the University of Missouri last month. But a police report obtained by The Daily Caller on Wednesday does show that a university police officer did observe the scrawling. The so-called poop swastika has been the subject of intense...

    Something stinks at the University of Missouri. A reported incident of vandalism at Mizzou sparked university-wide protests, a boycott by the school’s 4-5 football team, and eventually the resignation of the university’s president and chancellor. There’s only one problem: no evidence of the alleged incident, in which a poop swastika on the wall of a dormitory restroom was reported, has ever been made publicly available. Did this incident occur as reported, or was it an immaculate defecation that formed the foundation of an unimaginable deception?According to Billy Donley, the president of Mizzou’s Residence Halls Association (RHA), the poop swastika was...

    On Sunday eastern Germany's first Buddhist graveyard opened in Dresden, marking a turning point for the region's Vietnamese community. But a missing symbol makes the burial ground a peculiarly German affair. The burial ground is long overdue, Ding Linger, a spokesperson for the Vietnamese Buddhist Centre in Dresden told The Local. "It's been needed for 40 years since Vietnamese people first came to East Germany," he said. Vietnamese are the largest immigrant population in east Germany, making up 100,000 of the population. Of those, 7,000 live in Dresden, reports the Hamburger Morgenpost. With around 85 percent of the Vietnamese population...

    WASHINGTON: Following outcry from several groups, a prestigious American university has decided to rescind its suspension order against a student who displayed a Hindu swastika on his residence hall's bulletin board. The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) welcomed the move to rescind the interim suspension order by the George Washington University (GWU). HAF associate director of public policy, Harsh Voruganti, said that the decision reflects the facts of this case and the efforts by Hindu organisations to educate campus officials about the sacredness of the Indian swastika. The small, bronze, swastika was displayed by the student on March 16 on a...

    The first thing you notice as you walk through the corridors of the Azov battalion's base in Mariupol are the swastikas. There are many — painted on doors, adorning the walls and chalked onto the blackboards of this former school, now temporary headquarters for the Azov troops. It is a confronting sight and when I query the young soldier assigned to show me around he is quick to correct me, pointing out that the symbol is in fact a "modified swastika" — more like the letter N crossed with a straight line. When I point to another symbol of the...

    DAVIS--On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to. “I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said. Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst. “I mean, you can see throughout history many Arab countries have tried to take down Israel,” Nir Voloshin said. Pro-Israel students say they feared recent events would lead to...

    DAVIS (CBS13) – A Jewish fraternity woke up to the hate symbols spray-painted on their home Saturday morning. Two red swastikas were found painted on Alpha Epsilon Pi’s house, an off-campus fraternity. The Davis Police Department says they are investigating the incident as a hate crime. AEPI brothers believe the vandalism was done in retaliation to their support for Israel, as this week the student body voted to pass an act that will urge the UC Regents to divest from companies that provide resources to Israel. The frat brothers say they’ve been very outspoken at those “divestment meetings” and believe...

    On Sunday morning, Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount—the holiest site in Judaism—were appalled to find that Muslim worshipers had daubed anti-Semitic graffiti equating the Jewish Star of David to the Nazi swastika. Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick first uploaded a photo of the shocking graffiti onto his Facebook account, along with a statement blaming the lack of proper response by authorities to Islamist rioting and provocations, and accusing the government of burying its head in the sand. “When they make light of the torching of a police station on the Temple Mount, when the sole response to daily Muslim...
