Within the span of a few days, windows were shattered at two Jewish food establishments in Oaklandâ€™s Grand Lake district. Police are investigating the broken windows â€” one at Holy Land Restaurant reported on April 16, the other at Grand Bakery two days later â€” as vandalism, according to Lt. Kenneth Parris, the Jewish community liaison officer with the Oakland Police Department. As of press time April 21, there were no leads and no one had claimed responsibility for the acts, Parris said.
He added that there was no immediate evidence indicating the vandalism was motivated by hate. Yet given its timing, there is some cause for concern, he said. â€œBecause of the proximity of Yom Haâ€™Atzmaut [Israel Independence Day], and the fact that Adolf Hitlerâ€™s birthday and Israeli Independence Day came together this year, I am concerned about the potential that it might be anti-Semitic activity,â€ Parris said. â€œTwo of the three Jewish businesses in the Grand Lake area were hit, and there were no reports of anybody else having this experience.â€

Three swastikas have been found drawn on hallway walls of residence halls at the Clark Kerr Campus since Wednesday evening, alarming administrators but provoking little visible reaction from students.
The first swastika, measuring 6 by 6 inches, was drawn in pen on a wall in Building 2 between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night, while the second and third, each measuring about 3 by 3 inches, were drawn in Building 3 between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. Saturday morning, according to Marty Takimoto, spokesperson for Residential and Student Service Programs. All the drawings have since been painted over.
Though campus officials have condemned the drawings, classifying them as "hate incidents," the drawings have elicited little student response.
