Bookstore Repeatedly Vandalized For Name

A book store in Denver is catching a lot of flack because it’s name is now associated with a terrorist group. ISIS Books & Gifts has been around since the 1980s and was named after the Egyptian goddess. But now people are vandalizing the store because they believe the owners support Islamic extremists.

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

“A Denver-area store called Isis Books & Gifts wants the world to know its name comes from the Egyptian goddess of healing and motherhood and it isn't run by terrorists.

Co-owner Jeff Harrison said Wednesday that the suburban Denver shop has been vandalized five times in the past year or so, probably by people who mistake the name for ISIS, one of the acronyms for the Islamic State terrorist group.

The latest vandalism came last weekend when a store sign was smashed after the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 129 people.”

You gotta love Americans....
