From the Associated Press via ynetnews.com:
Suspected hate crimes
against Jews and Muslims have increased in New York City following
unrest overseas this summer, but the attacks are random and not from any
organized group, police officials said Wednesday.
Deputy Chief Michael
Osgood, who heads the special victims division, said there's been an
increase since July 1, when reports about the unrest in Gaza and radical
Islamist group ISIS became front-page news.
