Anti-Israel graffiti was spray painted last week at the Knollwood Country Club, a predominantly Jewish club on W. Maple Road in West Bloomfield Township.

The Detroit Free Press reports: 

Four different areas of Knollwood Country Club were targeted with spray paint, with several of them that read "F--- IDF," an apparent reference to the Israel Defense Forces, and one that read "I hope U Die instead." The graffiti was discovered Friday morning by staff at the club the day after there was a scheduled event with Friends of the Israel Defense Forces at the country club that drew protesters, West Bloomfield Deputy Police Chief Dale Young told the Free Press on Wednesday.

The graffiti was painted on two signs of the country club, an outbuilding on the side, and a utility box on a traffic light pole at an exit, Young said. He said police are still investigating the incident and have not made any arrests.
