Anti-Semitic signs were discovered on Monday 12 April on the walls of the main entrance to Science Po Paris, rue Saint-Guillaume, in the 7th arrondissement of the capital.

The Institute of Political Studies reported that “this morning, hateful inscriptions, some of them anti-Semitic, were discovered on the walls (…) of the main entrance to the political science campus in Paris.” In a press release.

According to photographs reported by the Union of Jewish Students in France (UEJF), the Star of David sign is crossed out, along with the inscription “Death to Israel” and “infidels” (“infidels” in Arabic) in black with spray paint.

I strongly condemn the anti-Semitic signs that have been placed on the walls of the Paris Sciences Institute this morning. There is no place for hatred in our republic. Higher Education Minister Frederick Vidal replied, “Everything will be done to identify and prosecute those responsible.” On Twitter.

The administration strongly condemns this heinous and cowardly act. A complaint is in progress. Sciences Po Paris said the cleanup is continuing. Another complaint must be filed with the UEJF.

For its part, the Institute of Political Studies said that it “continues its struggle more than ever before against all forms of discrimination and attacks on human dignity.”
