The civil rights office of the US Department of Education has opened an investigation into allegations of anti-Semitism at the University of California, Berkeley.

The investigation stems from a complaint filed by two recent graduates of the university, who charge that campus officials allowed a hostile campus environment for Jewish students to continue unabated by not stopping anti-Israel protests on campus, according to the Los Angeles Times.




The charges filed in July refer specifically to the annual February "Apartheid Week," saying that the campus event led to an increase in anti-Semitic hate speech, the newspaper reported on Oct 3.
