Jewish Homes Hit by Kkk Cross Burning Painted with Swastikas

Klu Klux Klan-style burnings and anti-Semitic scrawlings were found at the homes of four Jewish families in the San Fernando Valley during the weekend. Police said one family had a cross burned on the front lawn, another had a Star of David burned into the lawn and two other families found anti-Semitic scrawlings and swastikas spray-painted on garage doors. This was the latest in a series of cross burnings over the last two weeks; which started with acts against Black families living in white neighborhoods. Police believe many of the incidents are the work of young pranksters.
