Swastikas painted in D.C. suburb

Several swastikas were found painted on homes in a Washington suburb that is home to many Israelis.

Police are investigating the vandalism in the Rockville, Md., neighborhood as a hate crime, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.

The vandalism, which was discovered Sept. 6, comes a few months after some Israeli children in the neighborhood were attacked in what residents described as an anti-Semitic assault, according to the newspaper.

In response to the incidents, residents have requested increased security.
