KU Fraternity Expels 4 Members for Mocking Muslims

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A fraternity at the University of Kansas has kicked out four members after a video posted on social media showed someone mocking Muslims.  Zeta Beta Tau chapter president Jason Finkelstein said Wednesday that the traditionally Jewish fraternity learned of the video April 10th and expelled the members the next day. He said it appears the clip was posted April 9 via the app Yeti.  In a written statement released over the weekend to the school's student newspaper, the University Daily Kansan, the fraternity said it takes a "strong stance against bigotry and intolerance in all forms."  The student paper obtained the clip, which shows a man wrapped in a blanket with his face and head covered. He can be heard saying "Allahu akbar," Arabic for "God is great."
