In the wake of the Paris attacks, a great deal of senseless violence is being perpetrated on American Muslims and those who are associated with the religion in one way or another.

In this case, a decades old bookstore named ISIS Books and Gifts Healing Oasis has recently been vandalized for the fifth time in one year for its unfortunate name choice.

As it turns out, Isis is also the name of an ancient Egyptian goddess, which is where the book store got its name. Vandals didn’t think about the fact that the bookstore has existed with the name ‘Isis’ long before the terrorist group gained traction. Instead, they have opted to again and again vandalize the company by destroying their sign and throwing rocks through windows.

Watch The Young Turks discuss the issue.
