Vandalism of West Philly mosque is under police investigation; calls for hate crime probe arise

The Masjid Al-Jamia mosque in West Philadelphia became the target of vandalism this week. Surveillance cameras captured footage of an individual spray-painting phrases and symbols on the mosque’s entrance. Philadelphia police are investigating the incident, which had an individual in a red overcoat spray-paint the phrase “Give [peace] a chance” and symbols including the Star of David and what appears to be the Communist hammer and sickle symbol.
