Vandals targeted a combined mosque-Islamic community center in Los Angeles twice during the past week, although in one instance the perpetrators apparently mistook the mosque for a synagogue. The front of the Islamic Center of Southern California was defaced Oct. 26 with a swastika and the words, “Jew, Go Home.” And on Sunday evening, a large rock shattered the front glass door of the center while worshipers were praying inside. Jewish and Muslim leaders denounced the attacks.
