LOS ANGELES  — A series of fliers posted on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, accused Jews of being behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The fliers, which appeared around campus during last weekend when students were moving in for the fall semester, declared that “9/11 Was an Outside Job,” with a large blue Star of David. The text urged readers to visit websites arguing that the attacks were the result of an international Zionist conspiracy and to Google terms such as “9/11 Was Mossad.”

Rabbi Evan Goodman, executive director of UC Santa Barbara’s Hillel, estimated that up to 10 fliers were posted around campus, the Los Angeles Jewish Journal reported. In a posting on the blog for the Santa Barbara Hillel, Goodman said that Hillel and university staff along with students had taken down the fliers, and that there was no indication that any students or student groups had put them up.

Goodman’s post noted that the first student to take down a flier and bring it to Hillel was a Muslim student leader. He also said the “UCSB administration has been prompt and proactive in their response to these postings.”
